an everlasting dance

May 13, 2017 – Graduation

embraced by a melody…

consumed by a rhythm…

I reach beyond my present


wrap my arms


the memories of the past…

I miss the sidelines of yesteryear ~

when time and space existed in unison ~

as each moment unfolded


our dreams embraced.




the passage of time and distance have altered these lines.


You have taken flight

~ chasing angels ~

whose beacons flash the promises of dreams.




I stand here

~ quietly ~

as my patience longingly awaits

~ words ~

to scroll……. across……. a……. screen…….

Happy 20th Pnut!


I am in shock


in awe


in a state of disbelief


I am amazed


20 years

could fly by

on a breeze



South Rim of the Grand Canyon!!


Actually Jordan is jumping!!!  Not certain if there is a breeze but, yes he is really jumping and this photo, believe it or not, was neither tweaked, photo shopped or anything of the like!  (Honestly, I asked.)  It seemed Jordan kept jumping like a jack-in-the-box and Peyton took rapid shots with his i-phone and this is the ‘highest point’ picture!

once upon a time…


i remember when Power Rangers ruled the world


light sabers were the toy of choice ~


Batman socks were not allowed to be washed


Darth Vader capes had to be worn.


hours were spent on the couch watching Star Wars

~ every movie ~

chapters one through six


we could never get enough of a T-Rex

eating everything in its midst.


~ now ~

it is about fantasy football,

college entrance exams


apps to download,

making some bucks

to buy some stuff


typing texts to friends upon friends.




he was my little baby ~

almost 9 lbs of sweet and cuddly coos

with barely a hair on his head,

chunky little cheeks


two eyes full of baby blue.



he is 5′-11″,

long and lean with an athlete’s build,

two eyes of hazel,

muscular, hairy legs


in possession of some serious cooking skills.


I keep wondering when and how this all happened,

17 years

have come and gone,


what I do know for certain

is I could not be more proud,

of my baby boy


what he has become….



once upon a very long time……


in the beginning

in the beginning…


at the present time

in cooking form – fave shorts, shirt, socks…


first day of work

Mr. Professional….


Happy Birthday Peyton!

My Little Man

~ Forever ~
