Random Quote

It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind.
-- Vita Sackville-West

On My Own

 

The kids are gone tonight. Bari is at a basketball game, Nick is at his girlfriend's house, Aaron is off in his room, and Austin and Jacob are happy to have their mom back from the hospital and they are enjoying her.

So of course, I'm listening to Journey's Greatest Hits - loudly - and trying to wrap up the first phase of this web site.

Steve Perry and crew get my vote for greatest band ever. Great songs, incredible musicians, and I'd love to sing like Steve. How can anyone not tap their foot to "Ask the Lonely?"

Dude...

We used to play a few Journey tunes in the band. You know, it's mighty hard to program this here web site and jam on the air guitar at the same time...

Fortunately, my neighbors haven't complained about my headphoned sing-along, so life is good.

Oh, and the little drawing? That was how I depicted myself back in the days when I still had hair. Long hair and a permanent smile :)

That's my "senior" picture. Or at least it turned out that way. I graduated as a junior and my t-shirt - why, it's a Journey concert t-shirt, of course!

Haha!! Look at that hair!!! I love senior pics..I had mine up a few months ago. It's funny..I had shaved a good portion of mine off, so I had a lot less than I do now...and you have a lot more in this pic than you do now! Man, we're gettin' old, my artist friend. :) I am putting up 4 collage pieces on eBay this afternoon. Wish me luck and $$.
