Land of Misery
On the eastern shore, she knocked on our door
Then drifted away to the west
She then turned north, and steadily forth
With rage upon her crest
As she gathered force, On a steady course
To a land below the sea
Too Unaware, or unprepared
For such a tragedy
Toppling of homes, the shredding of domes
of a wind that relentlessly blows
All the terrain, was flooded with rain
When the lake did overflow
And then she…Continue
Irma and Florida

We're watching several channels
To determine what's for real
Reporters on the outside,
In the wind and rain's ideal
The place now is Miami
Presentation there's the best
Storm surge rising in the streets
Wind and rain are reaching crest
Palm trees show the blowing winds
Waves rock and roll the boats
Around low lying castle homes
Are quickly rising…
Wasn't to long ago I shared about the rock painting Group I belong to in my little town..
I have seen many rocks with beautiful flowers, animals, flags, anything you could imagine.
But this morning as I checked on our group I saw a rock that grabbed my heart and embedded
itself on my soul...
Definitely painted by a man who knows the Price Paid for Our Freedoms
And the Freedoms of Others…Continue

Age Is Better
I have been young,
a fresh faced sprout,
with agile legs, a muscled arm and smile
to charm the world I went through
in a rush to get a little older, sooner.
Catching my reflection while passing past
a looking glass not long ago
I discovered I was older, even old. There was
no sudden melancholy or regret, and yet
some sadness in the wonder that it happened
while I wasn’t watching,
No pause to proudly ply the…

The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. The beauty of the morning and the radiance of noon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquillity of the evening. Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.

Seasons In the Sun
Goodby, Emile, my trusted friend, we've known each
other since we were nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills and trees, learned of love
and A B Cs, skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Adieu, Emile, it's hard to die when all the birds are
singing in the sky. Now that the Spring is in the air
Pretty girls are ev'rywhere. wish…
As most of you know who have followed me here on W.N. most of my life has been a battle with
substance abuse and that the A.A. program was instrumental in my recovery from alcohol.
It was not however a factor in my spiritual recovery. Over time I came to realize that what was being offered was a religious program in the guise of a spiritual program and that deference to the Christian
religion was referred to when ever God was mentioned.
This was a problem for me as the…

The attached photo shows a "floating raft" of thousands of fire ants after a flood the whole colony ready and able to recolonize it's self after the waters recede...this could be in abandoned homes, debris etc.

Conversations With Jeshua
The book “ Your Souls Gift “ is a follow up on Robert Schwartz
book “ Your Souls Plan “. Here is a snipit of one of the many
conversations with Jeshua:
What else would you like to say to those experiencing poverty or
“ Do not despair, “ Jeshua advised. “ Even if the situation seems
bleak and hopeless, know that there is always a possibility for change.
There is always hope. Find two things in your…

There is a diner down on Del-Paso Blvd. in North Sacramento called lil' Joes
which back in the 80s was open 24 hrs. and served the street people and late night crowd of the area.
It sat on a corner between a "Adult Bookstore" and a Motel which as you can imagine "complimented"
each other, a block and a half north of there is a A.A. hall where I finally got (and stayed) sober after waking up over a cocked and loaded Revolver convinced me it was time.
LIL' Joes had quite a…

There's debris in every doorway,broken bottles
at the curb / wounds some people carry / not the
worst of us deserve / there are words that hurt
and haunt me that I overheard one night from a
man down by the mission holding up a traffic light
Jesus only cost about a $ 1.89 in a wrinkled
paper bag that somehow heaven always sends
I only see salvation when I drink until I'm blind
sweet Jesus shed his blood for me
and all my wino…
