My first lifetime, I wrote in the language of computers. Now, in my "Retirement" I want to express my thoughts and feelings to other humans.
Please join me in this new adventure while I explore what I have been hiding in my subconscious.
Round and Round
There is a huge Merry-Go-Round, it is so bright and it turns so incredibly fast! I watch it circle and circle again, I want to jump on but do I have the courage to take that first step. What if I miss the step? What if I don’t reach the hand hold?
We just had our final open air beach dinner of the year, the moon is bright and we are walking back to our Motel. I know I turned the right way but I don’t see any lights ahead of us. We did not go the wrong way or we could have breached a restricted military zone.
Whose Airplane is this?
What a beautiful day, sunny and warm, not a cloud in the sky! My Dad is in the “Sales Game”, he has flown all around the US, or at least it seems that way to me and even outside of the US. When I was about 8 he went on a trip which, thanks to politics became a trip of a lifetime. He spend about a week on a sales trip to Havana! Pre Castro of course and he brought me the coolest souvenirs including Pre Castro Cuban Money!
My Four Legged Hearing Aid
I get a lot of questions about Roudy, he is my almost constant companion and best friend. You see, Roudy is a four legged friend, he is very small, considered small even for a Chihuahua, which breed I am not so sure that Roudy belongs.
Dream Comes True
CHAPTER 1 Too Good To Be I just kept my eyes shut and savored the wakening moments. The smell of the sea transported me to some of my best and most vivid memories, vacations, sand castles, playing tag with incoming waves. I remembered my vacations when I was a kid, the beach at Ocean View, the gentle surf because of it being just inside the Chesapeake Bay. Floating along in a 15 foot fiberglass runabout while watching the monstrous sized naval ships that were dwarfed by an occasional giant sized air craft carrier. Then I became aware of the bird song. The screech of gulls fighting over some morsel of food is unpleasant to many but to me it was just a deepening of the inner serenity. The chirps and cheeps of the beach darts which was my childhood name for the sand pipers. The deepening heat of a midsummer day was being overshadowed by my trying to remember if I had applied enough sun screen and done it correctly.
I Am They
CHAPTER 1 ARRIVAL We drove up the snowy, winding road towards a cozy A-frame cabin. It seems like we have been on the road for only a few minutes when actually we have traveled over a couple hundred miles. We have been completely engaged in stimulating conversation. The car is redolent with the aroma of Hot Cocoa and peppermint candy canes from a pit stop a few miles back and we are stimulated with the excitement of beginning a couple days devoted only to each other. Sarah is driving, which was an easy decision because Sarah loves to be behind the steering wheel of life.
Just in Time Delivery
DRONE Every day, within a couple minutes of 10 in the morning, if the weather is reasonable, a drone emerges from the heavens on a bee-line for my solitude. This has been happening for almost a full week now. For the past 4 days, at 10 AM, every day except for Tuesday, when a Snowstorm at about the appointed hour delayed the delivery that day until noon. A box has been left on each delivery, they have been different sizes and some have contained rocks and one was packed with feathers but with no markings.
