I was thinking I’d like to write an ode to hair but my poetry writing skills, much less one that’s meant to be sung, is non-existent. So we’ll skip right over that.

I used to have long flowing black hair - you know - like the tresses you see blowing in the wind machine...

Rick is an easy going, six foot four affable man, who doesn’t get flustered or upset easily. He always has a smile on his face much like his wife Susan. The difference is that Susan is much shorter but then who isn’t when you’re six four!

Not Easy But Simple?

It’s not easy, but it’s simple. 

What an incongruent statement, don’t you think? I suppose it could be called an oxymoron but on the surface I look at it and think it’s just dumb! How can something that is not easy, i.e. complex, be simple? One would...

Once I saw his picture I knew who Paul Williams was but it was his younger self that I recognized. You may know him as the famous singer and songwriter that he is - some of his iconic work includes We've Only Just Begun and Rainy Days and Mondays sung by The Carpenters...

Are you tired? Do you feel like there are not enough hours in the day? Do you feel like the days run into weeks which run into months and it all just moves too quickly? Do you wonder if you will ever have time to pursue your dreams? Gosh, this is sounding an awful lot...

The shooting at the Navy Shipyard in Washington, DC, like every other shooting, was tragic. I always feel so helpless when I hear about these incidents. Though I send my thoughts and prayers to those who have been affected, a prayer just doesn’t seem enough in such a t...
