An Exercise Manual For the Couch Potato (Book) - 1/27/2008 8:29:04 AM
Sounds like a hilarious read, Steve! But one has to question the need for it, as most couch potatoes I know are very adept at the art already, and have no use for a how-to manual. LOL! :)
Hope you sell a million!

Bleedin' Like A Stuck Hawg (Short Story) - 1/2/2012 10:16:35 PM
Great story. I spent time working on Dee Dot ranch when I was around
18 yrs old. You described the gate entrance, road to the the Davis house and the
pond and dock just like I remembered it. When I worked there, Marshal Denison
was the ranch foreman and Mack McNut ran the hog farm. Some of my fondest
memories are from my time there. I to experienced a hog being cut and it was
not a pretty sight. But as all things from Old Florida, it was an end to a job that needed
to be done.. There where about 5,000 head of hogs and you are right about the barns. They worked great until there was a back up in the drains or the hogs chewed a hole in the wood floors in #2 & #3 barns.
By the way, when I was working there, we had approx 90 Buffalos on the ranch.

Hi, I was raised on Dee Dot Ranch and my Dad Donald Knapp Sr. ran the hog Orp. The foreman was Mr. Bennett and the lake you are talking about is named Florence Lake after Mrs.Florence E. Davis, J.E.'s wife. My sister Florence Knapp's God Mother is Florence Davis. I was bitten by a rattle snake at 5 years old in 1968 on the ranch it was 6 1/2 foot long. Me and my 7 brothers and sisters have plenty of good stories about the Ranch.I loved reading yours. Great Story. The Davis Family was the best, always caring & loving. We had a great life living on the Ranch. Thanks for your story it bought back great childhood memories. Sylvia :)

Old Florida Drifting Away (Short Story) - 7/7/2007 3:41:57 PM
Great little story. I'm a Florida girl too, born in Daytona Beach 61 years ago. I have watched old Florida disappear, much to my dismay. When I was very young, I recall the panthers screaming in the trees at night. Now I understand the Florida Panther is on the endangered species list. Check me out on the den. I think it will bring back some memories.

Fishing is its own religious experience, especially "outside" on a relatively small boat...your friend has a nice looking cat, not many of them on the water it seems, but I hear they handle heavy surf quite well, except for maybe the day you guys went out...the only worry I might have off Florida is the triangle, weird things do happen out there...enjoyed this story, wish I was there...Ed & Rufuz (w00f)

Coming To My Senses - For Kathy (Poetry) - 9/20/2012 12:51:25 PM
There was movement in my sleep

What is this magnetism
This affinity for another
That sucks one into the emotional vortex
Of yearning, of caring
Of desiring another?

..seems you have found your Beloved..bless you!!

What a SPLENDID piece! I am sorry to hear of your loss of a friend to cancer as I am now luckily a survivor times two, but I offer a piece of poetic wisdom which I feel this truly splendid piece speaks...
We begin as seeds of ashes and dust
with nurturing tenderness and love we break free of our seed crust
We seedlings grow in harmony and trust
with trials and errors put in our ways we do as we must
We continue onward and upward till one day our shells no longer hold us and bust
with the promise of rebirth and our faith in such back we go to ashes and dust

beautiful and vivid
The Cycle (Poetry) - 5/13/2004 10:47:44 AM
Wonderful, and deeply mindful poem. Though all appearences are transitory, our true nature isn't - the only consolation I can offer. Franz
The Cycle (Poetry) - 5/13/2004 7:10:20 AM
This was a lovely and beautiful tribute, for I felt that is what it was, so heart-wrenching and true, I am sorry for the loss of your friend,
The Giant (Poetry) - 4/22/2004 1:01:17 AM
This was lovely, I loved what you had to say here!
The Giant (Poetry) - 4/4/2004 10:17:58 PM
Well put so that we "smaller people" can see it your way. Love and peace to you, Steve. Regis
Alive At Night (Poetry) - 3/30/2004 5:45:47 PM
A beautiful poem and artwork, Steve. Your words paint like your pencil draws.

Great imagery here. I'm ready to go fishing. I hope it'll get back to being spring soon. 'Course, in Florida it's heading toward summer already.
Walls of Defense (Poetry) - 3/30/2004 5:38:13 PM
Great write, Steve. Sometimes one has to suck it up and move on.
The Giant (Poetry) - 3/30/2004 11:34:38 AM
So to the point. I think the form you chose strengthens the impact.
The Giant (Poetry) - 3/29/2004 11:40:29 AM
Excellent point, Steve, and a very nice small package of expressing it.
The Giant (Poetry) - 3/29/2004 11:36:19 AM
only 6'4", eh?? gee, i guess i will have to look up at you; i am only 4'10"! LOL but you're not as tall as my cousins joey or lonny: joey is 6'8" (and he's a PLUMBER! LOL), and my cousin lonny is 6'9 1/2" tall! so they have you beat by a country mile! LOL
(((HUGS))) and much love, your (short) tx. friend, karen lynn. :D
Homo Sapiens Acknowledged (Poetry) - 3/29/2004 11:29:16 AM
Excellent thought provoking write, Steve. I like your perception of occupying space (and time) with awareness of other sentient beings. Courage to acknowledge your own being is an uplifting sentiment.
Homo Sapiens Acknowledged (Poetry) - 3/29/2004 10:48:24 AM
..ahhh..my friend how often I catch myself thinking along those lines and I have yet to come up with something...hmmm..
Insightful write..I rather like it ..so much so..that I'm saving it! TY Steve!
Walls of Defense (Poetry) - 3/14/2004 2:42:50 PM

walls protect but also imprison...excellent poem with a true message.
Working It Out (Poetry) - 2/24/2004 3:22:52 AM
What remarkable depth you've achieved through these brief thoughts! Moving. Significant.
Walls of Defense (Poetry) - 2/20/2004 10:06:00 PM
Sometimes, you gotta do it brick by brick... This is spot on, Steve.
Walls of Defense (Poetry) - 2/20/2004 8:02:32 AM
Steve, Breaking down those past walls whether all at once or brick by brick can be an exhilarating experience as you discover your next love. Sometimes the journey is more rewarding than the destination, but finding the perfect destination is always worth the pain.
Walls of Defense (Poetry) - 2/20/2004 6:03:32 AM
Excellent and so true! I liked this poem very much,

How beautiful, and how true, Steve!!
"We were children when
Our youthful song
Was a duet
And bumbling innocence"
Ah, how I remember the beautiful duets of my youth! Thanks so much, Steve, for lovely thoughts.
Voices From the Past (Poetry) - 2/9/2004 7:10:30 AM
Childhood friendships last forever..simply because they were some of our first memories.

"Maybe we should
Stand outside ourselves
To give that
Which we feel..."
Profound words, these.
Good write, Steve.

Seems there's much more to this one than meets the eye. Thanks for the momentary glance inward.
The Treasure Chest (Poetry) - 1/30/2004 12:50:06 PM
I too wrote a poem like this, but I have not posted it here on the Den. I think that man's beginnings have contributed to making him into a packrat. Anyway, point well taken.
The Treasure Chest (Poetry) - 1/30/2004 12:36:41 PM
This was nice, I liked this, excellent Steve,

'To share the sweet harmony
Of our weightless
We spiraled past the sky
Until the universe
Was our realm
And our metamorphosis
Exquisite imagery - beautiful!

Your artwork is phenomenal! Thank YOU for sharing.
A Dawning (Poetry) - 1/13/2004 8:16:53 AM
What a beautiful picture you paint of being in harmony with mother earth! I especially like this image:
"And we are part of the forest
With leaves in our hair
And the sun-speckled shadows
Dancing on our bodies"
Self Awareness (Poetry) - 1/11/2004 11:41:50 AM
I loved this, one of my faves now also, this was outstanding!
There Must Be More (Poetry) - 1/10/2004 10:02:23 AM
As a lighted candle in cavernous depths
A momentary spark
Kindled and fed
Of other existence
..and it's these Flames that nudge us on..ever searching,pondering,evaluating,....
On Death (Poetry) - 1/9/2004 2:55:54 PM
But let the mirror
That forms your thoughts
Reflect on the spark
Called by my name
I'm sure I am as I was
Before I was
Oh Steve!!! This is splendid...you potrayed death as it shoul be..the gateway for the spark to return to that which it is was and always will the light of the One that is!!!
Glorious poetry!..Love it!!!
Matters of the Heart (Poetry) - 1/8/2004 4:08:45 AM
Then the human
Has its way
And grass across the fence
Love builds its walls
..oh ..how TRUE..alas Jealousy does it every time..hmmm
Superb write! ty

Self Awareness (Poetry) - 1/8/2004 4:03:21 AM
Negates the truth
My knowledge is useless
OH YES YES YES !!!!!..indeed that is how I feel lately..knowledge that I have is quite useless to me..perhaps I'll should allow the heart to carry me and not my mind etc.
inspiring piece..give us more..
Self Awareness (Poetry) - 12/27/2003 6:34:28 AM
Great conclusion! I love this poem.
Self Awareness (Poetry) - 12/26/2003 4:57:15 PM
I read this several times; the last time, I read each line slowly so I might absorb your words thoroughly.
In my reality, I've always had the most difficulty with the concept that all is either black or white. In my world, I argue that there are many shades of gray. But... philosophically speaking, I suppose that white encompasses gray, since white is comprised of all colors of the rainbow, eh?
Most profound (although, certainly not a new concept) is this:
"Truth is relative
Since we all play a semantic game
But appearance is deceiving
The frown behind the smile"
One thing I've learned is that another's "truth" isn't necessarily my "truth"; therefore your statement is quite succinct. (In my world - ha ha)
And within the context of this poem, I'd concur: Knowledge is useless.
Thanks for shaking my brain around today, Steve. This is a real keeper; I know I'll read it often.
To the Egress (Poetry) - 12/26/2003 6:47:30 AM

So true, so true, Steve. But then, in our youth is when we make all our mistakes! Hopefully, we mature and gain wisdom of the heart. Exceptionally good write. ~~Bonnie Q
