Where is the Justice (Short Story) - 3/18/2013 11:52:17 AM
I don't trust any "systems" be they religious, political, or financial. We have enough evidence all around to indicate that they've never worked; just look at the state of this world. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace to you,
One More Shot, Bring It On Gale (Short Story) - 8/29/2010 5:05:12 AM
Hang in there. My very favorite saying is, "Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." Dance away, girl. You're on your way.

Denied, The Cruel Journey of being denied of seeing Flesh and Blood (Short Story) - 8/19/2010 5:31:18 PM
But, the question remains, how can humans be so cruel to each other, when there is so much kindness and love and itís not that hard to give.
I admire your attitude and your resolve. Love and best wishes to you,
When Is This Gale Going to End and Calm Seas I Can Sail (Short Story) - 8/19/2010 4:37:53 PM
I enjoyed this real and honest account, Coni; as well, I appreciate the philosophy that you shared via your story. By the way, I bought a new GMC Jimmy in 2002 and it's like new but then, I don't drive it that much and it has been looked after. You do give me pause for thought though. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
I'm Back, Wiser, Stronger and at a Breathing Point (Short Story) - 3/20/2008 6:03:51 AM
Sometimes the wind really knocks us off course for a time and takes our breath away. Welcome back... although I didn't know you before, :~) I look forward to learning more about you and reading more of your works.

Cell Phones and Relationships (Short Story) - 3/16/2008 12:20:20 PM
Yeah, I pretty much knew that my ex was having an affair when his cell phone company called... as far as I knew, he didn't own a cell phone. You guessed it, his mistress bought for him so they could carry on their international affair... yeah, he's now my ex ...thank goodness.

Steroids, The Monster Drug (Short Story) - 12/23/2006 1:26:43 PM
Your warning ought to be heeded. This is painful to read. I do hope that you are feeling better. Blessings and healing to you,
Cultural Paradise (Poetry) - 12/22/2012 11:59:58 AM
Sounds like a good place to get to know, ...mind,you; you could be using a metaphor eliciting much more thought and emotion. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
The Man in the Picture, Woman in the Mirror (Poetry) - 12/22/2012 9:57:00 AM
Sadly, your words express a universal and timeless theme of this life/world. I think that some people just don't know how to love and certainly, I know many who don't know a thing about romance and all that goes with it, including keeping promises (or not making any that one does not intend to keep). Thank you. Love and best wishes,
The Last Breath Was For You (Poetry) - 12/22/2012 9:20:41 AM
A soul-stirring write that awakens sharp and painful emotions to which I can relate. There's a typo in this verse: "For a empty soul..." I appreciate when others point out mine because I know I make some. Thank you for sharing this meaningful offering. Love and best wishes,

A Painting If We Were (Poetry) - 12/18/2012 7:26:13 PM
I would not compare myself to a painting and, in my humble opinion, neither should you because I think you are much more than that. At the same time, I understand where you are "coming from." Love and best wishes,
A Painting If We Were (Poetry) - 12/18/2012 7:04:53 PM

Did He Wait To Long (Poetry) - 11/20/2012 10:56:55 AM
The mystery of it makes me swallow my shallow breath. Sometimes waiting is wasted time, other times it's not.

A Passing Ship's Love (Poetry) - 5/27/2011 8:37:53 AM
"Love is not love that alters when it alteration finds." I go to Shakespear's sonnets when I want to learn about love. But your poem does express a sad truth. Love is not love that seeks to change the object of its devotion. For me true love is unconditional and seeks to help not hurt the beloved. Nice work. Ron
Moonlight Mending (Poetry) - 5/26/2011 5:38:36 AM
Relaxation is indeed a nice therapy. Thanks.
Don't Bark, If You Can't Take the Bite (Poetry) - 5/25/2011 12:59:40 PM

Sounds like some anger mamagement could be applied here. I hope you both build a wall of peace between you.
I Just Might Be Glad You Took Him, Good Luck (Poetry) - 8/25/2010 9:20:50 AM
Sadly, the theme that you write of in these verses is all too common in this world/life. Betrayal is a horrible thing to have to go through. I do love the ending of your poem and the attitude that you exhibit therein. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/17/2009 3:44:05 AM
I can sooooooooooo much identify with what you have so well expressed here. I am afraid that some of us are born to be loners, walking down those nightly surburban sidewalks, longing for the "good life" we imagine is inside all those lighted closed curtains, but never really finding the perfect other-half for our empty selves. Perhaps our "other-half" is a utopian ideal which has no basis in reality. Perhaps we are perfectionists and, in this imperfect world, are destined to be loners. Is this sad? Maybe. I know that I would not settle for less :-)
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 1:20:03 PM
Welcome to AD. This poem speaks volumes. It's the evenings when we feel the most alone. You've described the feeling perfectly.
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 9:42:53 AM
Dear C. Lea,
What a wonbderful poem you created from the simple reality. Yes, there are many people who are alone and need to be discovered. Sometimes with one glance and sometimes it takes a while to discover the pearl that everyone is looking for . Your poem is a pearl, thank God for having discovered you. Love Emile

These Steps Youíve Built (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 6:02:04 AM
Life is short...your words so true. Whatever happiness found, grab it and run!!
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 6:00:01 AM
There is a difference to lonely...and being alone.
Even when we think we are alone....we're not!
If, I Were A Beer Bottle (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 5:56:39 AM
If you were a beer bottle and your name Coors, I would have my love forever! ! ! But then...I am Georg!
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/16/2009 5:55:01 AM
Alone...why that word always came to us with naked trees and a cold wind making dead leaves and an empty world?
Never we have associated the word alone with Spring or Summer.
But then we have that moments when alone means meditation.
Thanks for sharing.
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/20/2008 5:57:17 PM
It is said that "alone" is a state of mind. I don't know about that. There's nothing like hugging someone you love in real life. Thank you for sharing these sentiments. Love and best wishes,
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/20/2008 1:11:55 PM
So many questions to ponder and yet I hear some optimism too. There is a difference between being alone and being lonely. It seems you fit both in nicely....
Be always safe,
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/20/2008 6:08:06 AM
Being content and happy with yourself is the first step in a lasting, loving, and honest relationship!
When Night Falls Upon the Alone (Poetry) - 3/20/2008 4:15:50 AM
Destiny will catch up to you if you don't settle for less. A heart touching poem with a strong and honest voice.

Now, I Can Say Back When (Poetry) - 7/2/2006 4:17:39 PM
Oh yes. refections of a bygone era.. But as all times, this -2006- will be a bygone era..
Or as a cynic may write..
The fingers feel the lines - they prod the space -
Your ageing face - the face that once was so beautiful,
Is still there but unrecognizable...
Or maybe I'm the cynic from the neverworld lol...
If, I Were A Beer Bottle (Poetry) - 6/7/2006 2:21:47 PM
So sad, but so very true... Great take...
If, I Were A Beer Bottle (Poetry) - 6/6/2006 10:42:05 PM
So funny and so terribly true!
What is the madness?
How wonderful relationships would be if the same amount of energy and attention was generated onto loved ones instead!
If cigarettes are involved too, then there is no free hand at all! Addictions are often the first love or a major player in the triangle.
Thank you for tackling this incredible subject! (I'm saving to library)
Love & friendship Suzie :-D
A Passing Ship's Love (Poetry) - 6/6/2006 5:27:45 PM
Yes. The ways of love are hard to comprehend at times. Someone recently described love to me this way:
"Love has a different tune: I love you, therefore you are free to do as you wish. My love says you cannot do any wrong in my sight. My love says you cannot hurt me for it would not wish to make you responsible for the way I feel. My love says I am here for you if you want me, or I can be gone if that is what you wish. My love does not depend on your performance to exist - it depends entirely on a choice I make, moment by moment. My love accepts that you may even come to hate me for what I am and it is strong enough not to compromise itself to please you. My love cannot be manipulated. My capacity to love is infinite and is not bound by your feelings or desires."
Thank you for sharing this offering. Love and peace,
