    Not At All

    I dont own a cell phone. I dont have a credit card..... I dont even have a checkin account...or an Ipod, or a debit card. ....I like to garden, and I like the country....I like fresh air, I like to run. I wish I had land that I could roam as far as the eye could see. I wish it...

    Wish It Were Only A Bad Dream

    Last night I watched the movie "Body of Lies" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Russel Crowe - a Ridley Scott movie about trusting no one and deceiving everyone. I realize this doesn't have to be my reality of the world, but I can't help but see one expression after another of this...

    I Was Made For The Ice Age

    I have always admired people from the Ice Age. The way they lived astounds me. I love the cold, though I'm adaptable to the heat. I love the way those people seemed so brilliant, yet so simple. I want to live like them. I wish I could have been around back then. Seeing huge...

    A co-worker and I held hands

    while walking to the bus stop today. She made the advance, not me. So I went ahead and let my hand be held. Then, we went on to talk about sex and love, from her point of view. I was merely the listener, the curious badger. She talked to me about her first time, all her past...

    It seems that not only was I was not made for this time and age, but I also wasn't made for this world. I used to think that I was just an unemotional person. I never connected very well with others in relation to pain, pleasure, sorrow, or contentment. It seems like I've always...

     I was born for almost anytime but now it seems.  I was born for the  time of better romance where things came form the earth. I was born for a time of great change and happiness where things were simpler.  I would love to be in 1890  time of...

    I Belong In History

    I always love the old times, when everything is in black and white. When people bonded with each other over music and art, when the culture is so rich. When everything is not so fast paced.

    In the second half of the decade, young people began to revolt against the conservative norms of the time, as well as remove themselves from mainstream liberalism, in particular the high level of materialism which was so common during the era. This created a "counterculture...

    Old Fashioned

    I'll be the first to admit that I'm old-fashioned.  No, I'm not morally strict- far from it- or extremely conservative, but rather I'm old-fashioned in many other ways that matter more to my heart. I love antiques and old buildings.  I delight in Victorian wood trim...

    Noblesse Oblige

    I do some of my best thinking in the shower. I don't sing but I have resolved marital disputes, generated business plans and worked out budget problems. I also like to play word games with myself. This morning in the shower I recalled a phrase that I haven't heard used in a...

    Guess I'm An Old Soul

    I sometimes feel as if I was born several years too late. Like I should be living 100 years ago. I love the way the women dressed and conducted themselves back then. The way they talked and were graceful and elegant - the epitome of femininity! Ladies with their...

    Wrong Time, Wrong Era

    It's funny to think about, But some times I think I was born over 1000 years too late. I would love to live a much more simple existence. Growing my own food. Trading for what I couldn't grow. I'd do that now if I wasn't weighed down with so much debt.

    18th Century France

    I admire the courtship and rules of the higher class gentlemen of 18th century France I try to be as much like that as I can but modern times make it hard. I love the romance and my poetry and lyrics would not be wasted. I also love the honour concept and if you have a...

    Nowadays, time be tryin to get my attention,

    & life itself tries to prove she was always there & still here first. But both seem to have forgotten so soon the hell they put me through. Anyways, what can I say? They're both welcome. But without life in me, time will always move on without me.

    One can feel lost in the hasty changes of today, when one feels that shards of one's soul have been locked in the eroded relics of an ancient past.

    Lets Be Amish
