It has been a rough start to 2006. I endured headaches every day for six weeks, and a laceration to my hand requiring stitches last week. Nevertheless, things are looking up. Headaches are just mild annoyance now, the stitches came out Monday and I can use my hand again. Notification came telling me that my play…”Going Home” was selected in the top three for the finals and will be produced for the judges on stage at the civic center next Saturday. However, best of all is that we shall greet the Easter sunrise on Tybee Island…only 29 days to go. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and support. You know who you are and I truly appreciate it with all my heart…

29 Days


 41,760 minutes,



Time moves, hearts leap.

Seconds swift,

No time for sleep.

Joy wrought from despair,

as dark winter looses its grip

And a new hope is mine to share.

Journeys anew come to cleanse the mind,

built on the precept of a thing called Tybee Time.

Some may question the validity of this dream,

And some may wonder why of this I’m so keen.

So if there are some who desire to know,

Then in goodness, please read the following prose.


For there is to me, there is no sweeter thing,

Than to walk hand and hand with my Leah,

down by the salt marsh and it tidal stream.

Oh to but taste of the salt on each other lips,

And to lie in the warm sand in our loves embracing grip.

To chase the gulls like I was a kid again,

To watch the morning rise and taste the onshore wind.

To walk to the pier at midnight

and to kiss and hold each other tight.

to sit on the balcony overlooking the sea,

and to realize that I have it all…just Leah and me.

Oh but to see and feel all of this,

now void of worry, with heart and mind in bliss.

For to share my love with my only love,

is bring my life full circle as ordained by Him above.

So bare with me on this, and try to understand.

That when our day and time does arrive,

I pray with all my heart, it’s upon this golden land.

For in 41,750 minutes, I will once again be at total peace.

As Leah, my one true love and I

once again partake of our beautiful sea.

First, glad to hear you're feeling better.

Second, Hardy Congrats on the play, J. Allen - Marvelous News!

Third, this is a marvelous ode to life, to love, and to the place you love most in your heart and soul. And I can truly relate - I hope to spend my last days in my beloved northwoods, with my true love at my side.

Hope those 29 days go very quickly for you, and Good Luck next Saturday.

I have not been around much lately, and am not sure why you are having headaches and your hand require stitches; but I'm so glad to learn of your success and happiness, I will be praying for your continuing success and happiness.

When you say the play will be in the Civic Centre in 29 days, do you mean the North York Civic Centre in Toronto? If so, then I MUST go there to see it. I just work steps away down the street. Oh, how nice it will be!!!!! If it is there I will not miss it.

Congratulations on your success!!! It is always good to learn of something good happening to our writer friend.

Please let me know if what you meant was the "North York Civic Centre" for I'm just working down the street and across where it is.
