Lions & Tigers & Bare Necessities

It’s early Sunday morning here in the city and I’m feeling both nostalgic and thankful for everything I have. But when I think about the hustle and bustle of everyday life in New York, the endless quests to achieve and the contant and continuous feeling that there’s never enough of any one particular thing – I have to remind myself that it’s the simple things that bring me the most joy.

When I think back, maybe I first learned it as a child from watching The Jungle Book and listening to Baloo and Mowgli sing what would become the themesong of a lifetime.

Enjoy your trip down memory lane.

Haiku #34: Shot To The Heart

I wrote this Haiku after listening to Luther Vandorss & Cheryl Lynn’s classic “If This World Were Mine.”

just keep believing
that the arrow shoots to kill
when Cupid takes aim

Creatures Of The Night

There’s something about New York nights that are like no other in the world. In other places, when the evening simmers itself down – te concrete jungle is on it’s way to a boiling roar.

Take, for example, tonight. i’ decided to stay in and write, surf the web and sink into a movie before bed. Just as I was about to go to sleep I got a call about a “beach” party at my friend’s place downton. It was already 1:30 on the morning.

I grabbed my trunks, threw my clothes on and hurried out the door. I’m writing this on the train ride downtown.

The rest I’ll leave to your active imaginations – I’m here now 😉

Phil, take em’ home.

Adults Gone Wild? Or Mad? Or Wild Adults Gone Mad?

I popped out of my office for a smoke this afternoon (yes, I know – I’ve got to quit) and happened upon five people pushing threir forty’s engaged in a snowball fight on the corner. Who they were having this snowball fight with remains a mystery but they were definitely throwing snow “at” people other than themselves.

I took the opportunity to try out the zoom feature on my video application. Let me know what you think.

And yes, I thought they were idiots.

In Omnia Paratus

To be “prepared for all things.”

The MEAD notebook did just that for me as a child. It gave me a place to express myself in secret – long before even I knew that I would want nothing more than to be a so-called writer. It gave me a friend when I felt I didn’t have one and love when I thought it would never exist.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you, dear MEAD, for being the first to listen to me and that although technology (and looseleaf) caused us to drift apart, I could never forget you.

Ever!

Jermaine Vaughn teaches the legendary Mr. Rodgers some basic break moves and then tears it down. This is such a classic episode.

Well, here’s to you neighbors – enjoy!

Né Pour Aimer

we were born to love
in a language all our own.
speaking in heartbeats.
