Into A Twilight Zone



Like a forest that thickly grows
blocking light with hazy rows.

Memories of my past go away alone
into another time, into a twilight zone...

Waiting Room of One



Sometimes being alone and listening to the sound of silence can be quite soothing...

Information



Even with instant information at our fingertips with numerous electronic devices available, sometimes a good old-fashioned "Information" desk is the best place to go in order to get the information that we need...

Early On A Monday Morning



Foggy morning in the neighborhood. Goes with foggy headed from early rising, but I would not change my life for anything...

My Favorite Tree




My favorite tree outback of my house. Through rain snow sleet and wind it stands tall and proud.

Birds and squirrels live and play in this tree of life...

The Radiance of A Late Evening Sunset




Sometimes you are presented with a once in a lifetime vision. Catch them while you can for it will never happen again exactly like you see it for the first time...

Rustic Memories




Sometimes the most innocent and mundane items can trigger most wonderful memories of the distant past.

I will leave it at that...

Tulip - Passion and Love



Tulips are a symbol of passion and love.

Nothing shows more passion and more love than the crucifixion of Jesus on Good Friday and in His resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Yes, He is Risen...

Three Crosses On A Hill



There is no other name, given among men, by which we are saved...

It is by Jesus of whom we speak, who died on the middle cross, that we are saved from the penalty of our sins...

Up From The Past They Came




Several years ago my wife and I created a small flower garden in our yard. Eventually, due to physical problems, my wife could no longer take care of them like she wanted.

So we dug up the garden and all the bulbs we could find. We laid down new top soil and planted new grass. It looked like a flower garden had never been there.

A couple of years later we looked out one morning and discovered these flowers growing. We decided to let them go and when they would die I would just go over the area with the mower.

A month later they were still there and here they are. Two days after this photo was taken they had died and just disappeared.

I took the mower over that area yesterday.

The Creeper



The Creeper crawls along the ground.
It climbs up, and then hangs down.
So in your backyard don't say it's all fine.
For you might be next, to be covered by the vine...

Fade To Darkness



As shadows fade to darkness, slowly so do past memories of long ago as days quickly go by.

Soon the only memories we will have are the photographs we have taken and have not thrown away along with the memories of time.

A Cat’s Thoughts



Ever look at a cat, as they were seemingly just looking off into space, and wondering what they were thinking?

Celebrating 50 Years Of Marriage





On January 3rd 1969 I met Mary for the first time. I had just started a new job working security in a hospital and she was a Nurses Aid.

As I encountered her for the first time that day, while being taken on a tour of the hospital, Mary's "Southern" style of a smile just captured my heart. I just could not take my eyes off of her.

We both worked the second shift and within a short time we were going out after work to an all night White Coffee Pot restaurant. All we did was just talk, drink coffee and slowly be drawn to each other.

Before we knew it we were falling in love.

In February we became engaged and we were married on March 9th, 1969; sixty five days after we first met, "fifty" years ago today.

We have no regrets and no wondering if we did the right thing by getting married so quickly. Actually, we are more in love with each other now than ever before.

We only wish that these past fifty years had not gone by so fast.

I love you, Mary, with all my heart. Your southern style "Laudie" smile still holds me tight and I never want for you to ever let me go...

Happy Anniversary, Laudie ♥️
