Video King

He loved his video tapes, keeping them, cherishing every single video. There were sports videos, taped from favorite events, movies he favored, and even videos of personal recordings. When he moved with his family, he tossed out clothes, good ones too, even a wedding dress, to make room for his videos. His wife teared up when she found out that her mother’s red sweater was tossed aside to make room for videos. Now, he no longer has videos nor a video player. It has all turned to digital and so did his wife.

Committees were formed to make ways to peace. Division still happened when many found peace to be complicated. Not that they fought but mainly went their own way.

The hotter than hellacious days drew every bit of energy. The city fountain was the only respite. As people stood side by side, drinking and feeling the coolness, filling jugs for the elders and infirm, this fountain became Peace Fountain.

Fishing Day

Fishing Day

Make sure to load the truck in the correct order

Everything should be placed according to the plan

This method saves time and timing is everything

Honor what you were taught from your mentors

Once you sit and observe the real fun begins

Daylight peeking as you ponder is a great way to start a fishing day

Island Dreams

Island Dreams – An Acrostic

I wonder where I would spend my time on an island

Stepping onto the sandy bank, would I chance to explore

Leisurely I would wander while I would wonder

About that which is in the unknown

Needless, I would not require a camera or pen

Dreams will lead me to delights I can only capture in my heart
