    I Wish I Could Capture Time In A Bottle

    It's hard to believe that we are already three months into 2010. It seems that only last week we were celebrating Christmas.  Another year is going by so quickly.  The older I get the more I wonder why time simply vanishes before my eyes. When I was a kid I couldn...

    was a boy once, with faraway eyes and a hero's

    heart, bold yet afraid, knowing nothing but hope, loving all, even enemies. a romance of eyes and storms, weapons and wiles, empires of infant echoes, careless laughter, and oh what a friend! you were cherished more than lovers and mothers and gods, more than marbles and...

    I blinked. I look at my daughter in her last

    year of high school. She's beautiful. She's charming. And I see the pudgy hands of a toddler held up to me to wipe off if she got them dirty. She didn't like to get dirty, my girly girl. I discuss college plans with her and see her walking out the front door with dad to go to...

    I Miss The Past

    I will be turning 47 in July. I feel so lonely, so alienated. Though I have a great wife and kids, something began to feel wrong about 10 years ago. Tipically, I love life and all it has offered so far, but what is missing? I went into a deep depression for nearly all of those...

    The Last 20 Years Went By In A Flash.

    It seems like last month that I was starting my studies at university, but it was 20 years ago. I started an Arts degree, but gave up after 6 months because it wasn't going where I wanted. Two years later, I switched to Info Tech at the equivalent of a community college. 7...

    Hey there, It's been a really long time

    since I've posted on this "private" (yet very public) online forum. I've just been thinking so much lately and I need a place to quickly and quietly vent about lost time. Time is something that I struggle with, I hate that every passing day is another lost opportunity to do...

    "The Days Long Past"

    It does indeed seem like time passes by much too soon. Seems like one day you're a teenager having a good time, then the next thing you know, your just old. You have raised your kids, and those were good times, but where did all that was once comforting, and familiar disappear to...

    Reminiscing My School Days!!!!!!

    How does time change itself and people is no less than a mystery. It certainly has a knack of bringing a mighty change in one's life. Though it cant obliterate one's memories, whether or not they are painful, from one's mind- yet at times it blurs them... But my school days...

    Don't Waste Time

    I can't believe that I'm going to be 41 tomorrow. It seems only yesterday I was graduating college. In nine years I'll be 50! It just goes to show that you should live every day to its fullest. Never take anything for granted. You may think that you have all the time in the...
