As a particularly evil punishent when I was a child she'd make me go outside into the garage and use the end of a broom to remove cobwebs. It made me absolutely hysterical. I'd be crying and begging her, anything but that, but it was futile. As you walked in there was a dank...
of the store. I stopped suddenly to look at something that had caught my eye, and the next thing two huge arms are at the side of me, and a body bumped the back of me. It was all over in an instant.
I turned to see a very tall, well built black man who had "rear-ended" me...
t/life/current event/etc. is bananas" I remember the following quote and have a little laugh and some kind of breath of relief.
"In a reality of Bananas, being a green apple can be liberating."
Alzheimer's known as Jack. He'd sing so beautifully it sometimes brought tears to your eyes. He didn't like the staff who condescended him, had aggressive outbursts chasing them with a walking stick. He was always trying to escape from the home, and his singing seemed to be the...
keeping my head up
For what I thought was so right
Guess I'm not right always
And I thought love was a fight
You could tear each other down
Then come back to life
Guess I don't live always
Your set backs add up
I was wrong about us
Don't slam that door shut, just yet...
When I was 7 years of age my family was really poor. My mother worked 3 jobs and we really never saw her. It was one of those rare Winters in Seattle where it was snowing all most every day.
On Christmas Eve my mother told all 5 of us kids that we we not going to receive...
I OWE MY MOTHER
1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning."
2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."
3. My mother...
.but I do.
I remember too much and when I remember too little I panic.
If I squint one eye and try hard I can remember your face..but it doesn't come so easily now and the longer I live without seeing it up close the harder it is to bring to mind.
I remember the way it was to...
and the spaghetti flied off my plate onto the floor. It was supposed to be funny but I only remembered you stood behind me and grabbed fistfuls of my hair with both hands pulling hard and shook me around like dirty laundry. I cried so hard I couldn't breathe.
staring at you pulling clothes from a dryer
And I'm wondering how I got here
'Cause it seems some how I keep getting stuck in the mire
I needed this more than I knew
And I let you down and I said I'm sorry
But the light, it falls on my castle walls
And my basketballs...

Cause anything's better than this
Mix it up with vicadin
Cause anything's better than this
Little cuts on your wrist,
To try and get back the feeling
And no real friendships exists
That would be an understatement
Tell me the reason

I was eight, and it had brightly coloured pictures, and really funny poems. It was called electric eels and other shocking things. Unfortunately I was sick on it after about 3 months, but even though this was two decades ago, I can still remember some of the poems...
or 6, there was a little boy called Jason in one of my classes. He wore glasses, was very shy like me, and had a patch over one of his eyes. One day I blurted out something silly over what the sticker on his face was for, and since then we became the best of friends, and I used...
for the first time in half a lifetime. We talked and laughed and danced through the years sharing our lives my childhood friend. I was unaware a voice could be comforting soothing and yet tantalizing. We are so different and yet the same. Half touched memories of our youth...
and the teacher having all of us determine how old we would be in the year 2000.
I remember thinking it would be forever before I was that old.
There's a comical irony about sitting here now ready for 2016!!!!!
all in black and white
You enter in fullblown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight
If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn't change a thing
Now that you're here
Yeah, love is a verb here in my room
Here in my room, here in my room

In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages of a book full of death;
Reading how we'll die alone.
And if we're good we'll lay to rest,
Anywhere we want to go.
In your house I long to be;
Room by room patiently,
I'll wait for you there...
since I've seen you, but I can remember everything about your face. No one talks to me like you did. I hope wherever you are, you know that. I hope you revel in the fact that since you've been gone, no one has come close to taking your place. I sometimes think you were the last...

And I rarely post them. But I promised myself I'd write this before I leave for school in just over three hours.
I feel nostalgic. I was listening to Slowtown by Twenty One Pilots... I know.. they're my latest obsession. It'll wear off soon, I assure you. A piece of the song is...
Two hearts converging on a lovers refuge.
Golden bands etched upon teal blue skies. Blankets of stars sparking awe in our eyes.
Lips become drenched in the blood of red wine. Words that were spoken are now frozen in time.
Reflections of hope shone on serenity's lake. While...
Next to my Grandfather's house was a small store/post office/gas station. Besides a few taverns the small store was the only place of commerce in the tiny village. The store sort of looked like a house and sort of looked like a store. It had a brownish ...
trouble getting us to do chores. My dad would approach the problem by giving us a list of chores to do. I would happily do my dad's chore list carefully and with out question. I don't think the difference was because it was from my dad. I think the difference was that the list...
cold air conditioning winter only. I slept upstairs in a large one room bedroom with five beds. All the kids ( seven) slept there. There was no glass in the two large windows and the only thing that held out the cold air was two home made inserts made of rough lumber. My Momma...
And I live in the numbness now
In the background
I do the things we did before
I walk Haight Street to the store
And they say where's that crazy girl
You don't get drunk on red wine and fight no more
I don't see you anymore since the hospital
The plans I make still...
that I can't take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder what are we fighting for
When I say out loud
I want to get out of this
I wonder is there anything
I'm going to miss
I wonder how it's going to be
When you don't know me
How's it going to be
for your grave in the grave yard . It was covered in leaves . It was damp ,cold and windy . I couldn't remember where it was . I looked everywhere for it . I was carrying around a bouquet of flowers . Your favorite kind too . Not that it mattered , you're dead , you would not of...
ANZAC DAY (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps)

but it is about 30-40 minutes from me. We had taken my grandfather there, and he was already sick. He had a weird brain disorder, and just kind of degraded until he passed away. I think we fed the birds. I want to be back in that moment now, knowing what I know.
What I fear the most. I'm afraid to get forget. So, tell me, how could I ever? Forget you. Forget me, us, our, them, it, This. This here. This here is all I have. All I know. That thing, and how it were(s). When that took place. Those are mine. They're all I have. And I fear...
hundred years to catch up but better late than never.
Today is the centenary of the start of the Gallopolli Landings.
58000 Allied troops and 87000 Turks all killed in the bloodiest event of World War One that lasted an incredible 8months.

but faces in front of me
Racing through the void in my head
To find traces of a good luck academy
Sparks ignite and trade them for thought
About no one and nothing in particular
Washed the sickened socket and drove
Resent nothing, there's goodwill inside of me
