Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You

Closes eyes and holds close all the memories all the moments we shared and all the dreams that still await us in the future. I cannot tell you how beautiful life is when your here and magical and wonderful... it's because of you are.. and who I am when I am with you.

Elvis Presley - I Believe

The Hawk

Skies of gray without a hint of the rays of sunlight and the stillness of the trees lacked the vitality and color of the the previous season. No harsh winds or snow visit as the unseasonal weather tempted me to stay a little longer outdoors. On my routine visit to feed the chickens, I caught sight of a hawk perched high up in the tree. I stood there in amazement staring as he spread his wings wide preparing for flight. The natural balance of nature and a close up view of the biological food chain. All of us are dependent upon another person or another thing for our very survival, at least in a healthy social setting. This was different, the hawk gliding through the trees as if to command the air around him, beautiful and free. Fearing one of his few threats, man.
The Hawk

The hawk perched awaiting its prey allowed me relatively close as it did not appear afraid. You have to appreciate its stance in the chain, as it only kills what it needs to sustain. It doesn't fight for money, religion or for land , there's allot to be taught to the angered man. Nature natural selection is survival of the strong, as a people I believe we are doing something wrong.

Merry Christmas!

The holiday season brings with it reminders of the Christmas's of past. Those warm memories that you want to freeze to hold forever, it is what makes saying goodbye so difficult, I much more prefer hello! But there are those who have entered my life and left in one way or another to only leave behind an emptiness in my heart. Eager to hold close only warm thoughts and chase away the sadness that cast shadows dark and dreary over the day. Then I quickly jumped today and what the future brings. My father never said goodbye he always said "I'll be seeing ya." We struggle with a lot but I guess nothing is worse then and ending, I prefer to look at each, day, month and year as a chapter of a wide range of experiences.
The holiday table will be set with the same fine china, crystal and foods, but many less plates will be needed as time moves on. My 3rd born said its the societies demands upon us that set expectations that are not necessarily capable of being filled.

I cried, I laughed, I reached out to touch you
and hold close the memories....Merry Christmas!
