I love life. And I love my life. It’s a modern fairytale. Occasionally it’s scary as hell: a white knuckle roller-coaster ride and then it can be fabulous fun. In-between these extremes it can be mundane and ordinary sometimes. I love writing because this allows me to develop flights of fancy or record important events that affect my life.

Sharing Poetry...Max Ehrmann
by Max Ehrmann
It has been raining again. I have been
indoors, meditating on the
comings of life.
I wish there were more kindly persons
in the world. Our
develops selfishness and
I am determined to do something about it.
I cannot hope to convert
persons. To convert one
shall do well.
I will begin with the person I know best-
When it rains and one is much indoors,
one is likely to meditate on the
shortcomings of life.
Let me think - how shall I make myself
kind, gentle considerate? I do believe it has stopped raining.
I can go out now. I'll go
and shoot on the archery range. I'll not bother to reform myself today.
