Friendships: Something So Strong….

Friends … something so strong
Memories from childhood play
Coursing through our veins

What is true friendship to you? True friendship is like a rock by the sea. The waves crash against it but it stays steady and strong…

Reflections: At A Crossroads…

“Occasionally we find ourselves at unexpected crossroads with more than one opportunity from which to choose… Linda Lee Chaikin

Reflections: At A Crossroads…

We reached an impasse
The crossroad to the unknown
Time won’t wait for us

In life, we sometimes reach a point of indecision; a crossroad. At that point, we must stop and reflect, look back and then move forward. What crossroads have you had in your life?

“Stand at the crossroads if you will, but if you’ll not choose, I’ll move on without you” Jacqueline Carey

At the great juncture
Our secrets and fears stood guard
A crossroad unclear

Musings: A Little Crazy…

“I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.” Angelina Jolie

Musings: A Little Crazy... running through fire

Musings: A Little Crazy… running through fire

Back in the days when we were young,  stupid, and full of crazy ideas about our invincibility, a few childhood friends decided to tempt faith. JimJim, Xenia, Joe and Patty had heard that a small brush fire in a neighboring town was beginning to spread. The town alarm had gone off and fire fighters from every little town, north of nowhere,  grabbed their gear and headed in the direction of the wildfire.

It was a hot afternoon and the foursome were bored. After playing a round of pool, JimJim had an idiotic idea.
“Hey guys, wanna go check out that fire?” He asked
Xenia, a little less foolish than the rest, shook her head. “No, not today!” she mumbled
“Come on guys, it’ll be fun. We can go watch the fire fighters, light a few cigs from the brush, and take some photos of each other pretending to walk through the fire.” JimJim continued.

Patty yawned and turning her back on the rest, closed her eyes and fell dead asleep on the old black leather recliner.
“What do you say Joe? Wanna go?” JimJim pressed Joe hoping he’d take him up on the offer.
“Heck, why not. I’ll join in if the girls come with us.” said Joe

And so the conversation went, back and forth, back and forth, until Xenia relented. Patty woke up somewhere in the middle of this mess and got dragged into the crazy plan they had concocted. What was the plan?
Yeah, it was crazy alright but you have to wait to hear it. Those fools were lucky they lived to tell the tale.
