Sky, I would LOVE to hear about your horse and anything you wish to share.  I love horses, and it has been my dream to have a horse own me. [We never truly own animals...] So please, share your horse stories...I have a one or two...

Krawdad....you know your plants and floodplains sir...
Yes thats Nettle and I was good and rashed up but the pics were worth it...lol
Just beyond the treeline at the end of the path is the Meramec River, and in spring much of that area is underwater. The pic was taken in Castlewood State Park here in St. Louis, Mo.

I would love to live as a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

Sky, when you next go for a ride, I want to know from point to point, your thoughts and feelings....

~*~

Tomorrow, or, if you wish, in less than eight hours, I will be on my way to California, my home state.

While it will never be "home, again", it will be "home, today" for me.  To hear that the area surrounding where I will be landing had a bit of rock and roll today only seemed to me...quite apropos.  

For that very state has always been rocking and rolling...with, or without, whatever may be.

I think I need to go back and start studying just where the continent of our fine United States actually started...for it only makes sense to my mind that where it started...is where it will continue to grow...or falter....

I mean, how many earthquakes do we hear about on the east coast?  And when will Hawaii stop growing?  Volcanoes are a product more of growth, not outright destruction; although what is built by humans can be destroyed, that is not what earth has in mind, if it has a mind...which to the best of our knowledge, it doesn't...but...what if it did?

And what if Mother Nature had a mind?  Good God.../dess/ what would she and Earth think of us for what we do to it each day?

Well, since I know, and you know, that all we are going through is just a force of nature...we will not worry about it.  We can only deal with it.

Hmmm...for some reason, the "Twilight Zone" theme music is going through my mind...

ah well, that is what happens when the "vacation zone" hits you and it is hitting me just fine...I am about to unplug the computer and plug in from afar...

and afar...and afar...

Martie?  You ready to have some laughs? I am.  Some writing, too...

Oh kids...watch out...two poets in one city...

what could be better than braiding words?

Jellybeans waves to all
this is wonderful....it is a much needed break from my work which is driving me insane...more so than previously anyway...
its like being in Alice in wonderland and I never know when its "off with her head"
sigh
I finally got up the gumption to complain to the 'queen's' 'boss' and lets see if it gets worse or better....might end up finding myself in line with the unemployed...*shrug*

Hey Sky,
I have 98 horses. Wanna ride with me?

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Larry are you serious that you've got 98 horses? If it's true, I'm soooo jealous. Although I'd never find the time for 98 horses, and that would be a two hour chore at feeding time... I think I'll stick with my goal of 15 horses.

Martie!  I'm home, all right!  And I love the fog!!!  The feel and smell of home are far different than Kansas...and I hadn't realized just how much I have missed it!  Everyone has been wonderful...the flight was great...in fact, read here...

~*~

The Reunion Adventure

It’s easy to put a sad face on getting up at 4:00 A.M. on a weekday – if you are going to work.  But when you are not going to work and are in the beginning of a ten-day adventure, why, getting up isn’t hard at all.  In fact, it is one of the easiest things to do!  Add to that another passion of driving under a full moon on the edge of a starry night…and it is easy to see that some optimistic people, such as myself, would end up smiling all day.

Thus began my morning – and my trip back home.  The 90 mile road trip to Wichita seemed to melt under my tires…I was at my destination to drop off my car with nary a hitch.  The shuttle service was rapid and smooth; E-tickets are THE way to go…and being as I arrived quite early, there was little to do but enjoy the Kansas sunrise before my flight left.  

However, that is when I met John, the self-ascribed Boeing “computer nerd”.  Give an ear, and hear all about John, but in an hour’s nutshell, he was friendly, talkative, retired Air Force pilot who had never believed he would get into computers, but he had done so, willingly.  In speaking of his step-son and the surprises that children can throw at you, he brought up the fact that his son had written two fictional books which were off to the publishers.  

I smiled.

This was my “in”.  

“I write, too.”

“Most women do.”

“Poetry”.  Now I waited for the silence.  He smiled.  “My step-son writes poetry, too, but I only found out by accident.”  I smiled a little wider.

And then he admitted…”You’d be surprised if I told you that I write poetry, too, but I never tell people about it.”  What am I, ham salad?

So of course, I had to bring up our favorite home…and I invited John, and his son, to give it a look-over…and if they liked it, and could find one Sunshine hanging around, to go ahead and let me know if they ever wanted to join.  Now the smile was on the other face…

What a way to start one’s vacation...

~*~

See?  As a very good friend of mine would say, it's all about fun!

I will see you soon!!!

Karilea - if I whisper, will you listen?  Keeping in mind, I must stand close...

Karilea,
Does Ron pay you a commission? You're good!

Rhonda,
Silly girl! That's the horsepower under the gas tank.

Continuation – 9-30-04 through 10-01-04

To continue with Wednesday, what a homecoming I received by my brother and his family.  It has been over 12 years since I had last been home.  My brother had been busy working with his family, and never was able to come out and visit me.  Kids and work take up time, a subject about which I know as much as anyone else.  And of course, it wasn’t until late 1999 that I finally got involved with home computers, which were his life [programming, etc.] so at that time, I guess both of us felt we didn’t have much in common with each other.  Over the two-day period we were able to spend with each other, we learned differently, of course.

My brother and I were beginning to feel like Siamese twins separated at birth, there were so many similarities that were once again tying us together – mentally, physically, emotionally.  We could only hold this new found information close to us as time would soon separate us again – and for a period of time unknown, but surely not for as long as it had, before.

Wednesday evening, Thursday and Friday morning passed much too swiftly.  It was enjoyable, dancing around family and feeling as if our mutual interaction was a daily occurrence, so easily did I move into their house and family life style.  His step-daughter brought me a bouquet of gorgeous salmon-colored roses; I held my grand-niece, fed and changed her, and felt her to be more of a granddaughter than niece, so lovely and comfortable was she, in my arms.  It was a joy to be with all of them.   I baked and cooked in their kitchen, did dishes by hand…and it brought back some wonderful stories for my brother and myself to share with his daughter and family.  The hours slipped by easily, and irretrievably.  My brother shared events in his life that I had moved away from – he was never good with writing letters, and I let him talk, for my world had given me time to send letters home, and he felt fairly caught up with me until about 1992, the time that Mom died, and the letters seemed to cease coming.  Seeing as how my brother had never written me – I figured phone calls would suffice, but those were few and far between as well.  We didn’t quite reconnect on a more personal level until 1996, but it was in 2002 that my brother and I truly started talking again – and we have the computer world to thank for that.

When I finally figured out the value of instant messenger, there weren’t many days that went by that I didn’t have some sort of communication with my brothers.  Photos flew over the wires of the Internet, and I got to see him in a way and manner I had never expected – he loved Renaissance; he let his hair grow long the way some musicians do; and I found out that his love for composing and creating music held a very certain muse for him – our mother; just like our father often a’mused me with words and thoughts, energies and insight.

Toward the end of our visit Robert shared with me, to the best of his ability, his music, his voice, his songs.  We sang together some of our growing up years music – tunes and songs he had played to entertain people at restaurants and cafes while he worked his earlier years' day job.  He shared with me the dreams he was not able to fulfill.  The choices that he made, some good, some bad, he shared with me.  But above all, he shared with me the parental decisions he had helped his stepchildren with, and beamed in delight that his children had followed his advice.  He has a lot to be thankful for.

I promised my brother that I would be back soon.  Life is, to use the cliché, much too short to not keep some promises “sooner” than others.  I will be back, Robert, for another visit, to not only see how you are doing, but to see how that grandbaby has grown as well, and to share with her photos of when she was only one month old.

I love you, and yours.

~*~

In the late afternoon of 10-01-04, my high school girlfriend picked me up from my brother's and we headed south for Santa Maria, but not before a side trip to Jocko’s in Nipomo.  If my brother is reading this now, he’s smiling.

All I knew about Jockos is that it was the favored eating establishment of my mother and father, on the few times they would go out to dinner.  I remember that Mother would dress up for an evening out with our father, when dinner was more of an occasion as opposed to just, “let’s go somewhere quick…” and as we entered the establishment, I wondered if I would be “too casual” in my summer duds.  Not to worry – the overall casualness of the 21st century had more than caught up over the times of the 20th century [circa 1965] when going out was a rare treat for many wives and husbands, and had I dressed up like my mother use to do when planning a night out at Jocko’s, I would have been out of place.

While the dress code had relaxed, the attentiveness of our waiter had not, and although I had only heard of Jocko’s famous steaks and food, I was unprepared for the fact that the quality of that had NOT diminished at all.  So my girlfriend and I enjoyed a toast to ourselves and our ability to move along with the world and not let it take us over; we oohh’ed and aahh’d over the quality of the meal, and we laughed and giggled like girls again.  Catching up on some 20 years was going to take a little more time than we had imagined.

We arrived safely at the Radisson a couple of hours later, unpacked, and continued to talk through it all.  It was quite comforting to know that we hadn’t done all of our talking in a short time…we covered highlights of our lives, but we realized we were about to head into the nuances of all things under the surface.  But in so many ways, our ability to pick up where we left off has never forsaken us, and for me, that was a very good thing to acknowledge, indeed.

One matter that hit my senses very hard came about most unexpectedly.  My girlfriend is as compassionate as she has always been.  Our hotel is on the south side of town, less than a mile or so from where my parents raised us.  All I did was say, that was my street – and she said, "yes, I remember," and turned the corner to head toward the home I was raised in.  As we neared it, I saw the stone retainer wall my father had put up – just like it was the last time I had been home.  I saw the house, which had been kept in its original color of a pleasant, light green, with white trim.  Just like my parents had left it over 12 years ago.  I had not expected that.  Not at all.  For a person who doesn’t cry much – at least not in front of other people, the sudden, unexpected release of tears came as a surprise to me, but not to my friend.  

I thought I could drive by, see the house still standing, and either appreciate the way the new family was taking care of the yard and such, or be disappointed that it had fallen into disrepair, the way some folks are…

I was pleased to see certain things that my mom and dad had left with the house, were still in fine shape.  

I am home.

~*~

Friday evening continued easily, and with both my friend and I feeling the effects of our fine meal taking a pleasant, lulling effect over our bodies, it was simple enough to turn off the lights around 10:30 after the news, and start to drift asleep.  What I found even more enjoyable, however, was the quiet talking we did in the dark.  The soft sound of peaceful voices, filling in a gap that was reminiscent of a Walton Mountain’s family of good night voices…those last tones of “almost asleep” rocking us gently, quietly, as the calming arms of Morpheus took over, and bound us to one another again even more distinctly and surely than our youth ever had.

Only the “good times” of Thelma and Louise are to await us.

Saturday, October 2, 2004

Who knows what one will do when on vacation, or what things of interest will be most moving.  For my girlfriend, it was of the utmost importance to locate a T-handled reamer.  SHOCK

So on Saturday, that was what we had set out for.  I wasn’t in a buying mood [best time to go shopping] but was willing to walk off my breakfast in following her around.  For whatever reason, however, she decided to stop at one of the more expensive Malls [not WalMart, Kmart or Target] “just to look”.  I like to look.  No problem.

What I didn’t expect to find was one classy outfit, however.  This great three-piece suit said, “come over here…” so I went to inspect the price tag.  $200.  YIKES!  Another look, and the tag was marked through with a second slip of paper…$119.00.   Hmmm….ok, who is talking to me, anyway?  A look up at the top of the rack… “All items, $89.00”  Oh, geez…and I promised I wouldn’t be buying any clothes on this trip.  I PROMISED….

Well, I can fix this!  I pick up the outfit and march over to the sales lady to “verify” the price.  [It’s GOT to be wrong!]  She scans it for verification.  “$89, right?”  

“Well, no.”

AHA!

“Sixty-nine…”  Now, seeing as how this is the year of my graduating class, wouldn’t YOU think that someone was pointing you in the direction of what it is, exactly, you ought to be wearing later Saturday evening, and not the suit you lugged some air-miles from home?  

Thinking to myself that, ok, even hubby would agree that you couldn’t beat a 70% discount, I thought, “well, it won’t fit.”

And the slacks didn’t but the top and jacket did…hmmm….

“Hey, friend…go get the other suit that was hanging there [there were only two…] and she, being pleased as punch that I was “going wild…” gleefully skittered to the rack and back and said, “here, quick, before you change your mind.”  The second set of slacks fit.  The cuffs rolled beautifully back…the classic cut was “me”.

Oh geez….

Will this require new shoes?



Nope!

We eventually found the T-handled reamer, too…

Even hubby approved…of the suit, doesn't know yet about the T-handled reamer...which wasn't for me...

~*~

Soon enough, “reunion time” rolled around.  How disappointing to learn that they have had a reunion every five years…and this year was the first year that most of the out-of-towners came home, and the local grads STAYED home.  Ah well, some 50 out of close to a 400 member graduating class DID show…and it was wonderful doing all of the things that people do at reunions, like talk, drink, talk, eat, talk, stand around, talk, etc….

And it was amazing how some folks had changed SO much…and others had changed SO little!

And none of us were “old”…just finely mellowed and slightly weighted with maturity, grace, and acceptance of those whom, in school, we hadn’t thought fit to accept then.  THAT is showing “class”…

Even more amazing were the number of self-admittees of the “I was shy” club.  You were?  But I always saw you with such and so…and the things that others remember of you…even MORE amazing.  I truly had not realized just how much people knew of me, including the fact that I had wanted then, as now, to do nothing more than write, and share poetry, thoughts, feelings, and imagination…

It was a good, no, wonderful evening.  

~*~

Sunday morning found several of us banding together for brunch.  Even more laughter, faces that hadn’t appeared the night before were crashing the scene now, with tears of welcome and joyful hugs…and the furious exchanging of cards and e-mail addresses…because, it seems, we are all now at a point in our life where it is becoming vitally apparent that we dare not let time interfere with connections again…

What a wonderful weekend…

With even more joyful moments to look forward to!

That's awesome Sunshine. Reunions are interesting...people who you didn't even hang around  feel like close friends... and how some people change and others don't.
At my reunion there were two guys who were good friends in school and didn't even recognize each other.

I as well had such an awesome weekend...I went to a show (the performers are old friends of ours) and we stayed at a hotel and hung around until the sun came up...it's been years since I've spent any significant time with these guys.  I'm still glowing.

Hi honies!  I'm "home" again...but the "home of CA" will always remain.  What a blessed time I had...

there will be more reading to come, as well as some wonderful pictures...

and I would like to thank the poets who took time to meet me.  OMG...what a wonderful experience.  My brother, who shared his wonderful music and lyrics with me.  

And now...for a slight "Ta-Da" and then I will be back with some reminiscing.

Does anyone remember my little sharing of submitting my poems for the Kansas Poet Laureate position?  Well, I made the first cut.  I will be the second person to be judged this coming Friday, October 15.  I stand in the company of 12 other poets from around the state of Kansas.  It would be nice to know how many submissions were received.  However, I doubt I will be able to uncover that information...regardless, I am one of 13.

Hmmmm...and this judging will take place on a Friday?  LOL...

It's good to have constant contact again [internet access was not always a plus...LOL...]

So, until I can get back with more of my journeys, photos, and such, just know,

I came back a changed person.  Hopefully, all for the better...
