    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 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...

    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...

    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...
