Back To Basics

Small angelic child knows of nothing of worldly grandeur.

Eyes startled for first time at nature’s greatest wonders.

Surprised at the sound of dried leaves underfoot in fall.

Amazed and dazzled as flakes of snow tickles noses than decorates landscapes.

O’s and ah’s at the magic of Christmas reaching tiny hands at the magnificence.

Springing forward presents new fascinations smelling colorful silky petals.

Playing in warm rain on soft grass and laughing so hard it hurts.

Grown and responsible all is forgotten until a little special person reminds.

Experiencing the world again for the first time through your child’s eyes.

The Four Seasons Of Aberrant

Quickly the season’s change bringing about

the new,

the beautiful,

and often dangerous.

Paradisiac conversations with no excuse

for silence,

besotted not,

and drones on.

Unpredictably wicked like a scorned woman

robbed of love,

with no remorse,

and lack of empathy.

At times beauty takes reign and our mother

allocates radiant colors,

warm nights,

and best of memories.




Great Ideas for the Weekend

What to do, what to do?

That is the question on everyone’s mind about the upcoming weekend. Though we’re dead smack in the middle of winter, there is no lack of festivities to keep you entertained. From group activities to hanging solo, there is an answer to that dreadful question leaving no excuses for your state of boredom.

1)      Super Bowl Sunday! Yes, that’s right I said it. Calling all sports fans; there is no reason you have to sit at home whining about having nothing to do this Sunday. If house parties are not your style, local papers, radio station websites, and many television ads offering many places to watch the big game. For more information about the Super Bowl:

2)       Since February is now known as the month of romance and Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, couples may choose to celebrate the occasion instead of the date.  And what better way to spend a weekend than at a chocolate festival! For event listings near you visit:

3)      If you are a busy body and lucky enough to have snow in your area, you can’t go wrong with winter activities such as sledding,  skiing, snowboarding, or snowmobiling.  A favorite of is to pack the kids in the car and drive up to them hills, have a snow ball fight, drop down and make snow angels, and then build a huge snowman.
