life as i know it

"...everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt." -Sylvia Plath

a dedication of memories

*Written December 2004 – To Shoobie….with love and memories*

-Open Country-

I dream of the open country
sight of surrounding mountains
with snow-capped peaks
brisk cold winter air
invigorating our spirits
as our journey begins
down through winding roads
of openness and red rock canyons
into an ancient town of
sparse people and endless nature
then further on
Southwestern charm
adobes with hand-made fireplaces
scent of burning embers
and the wisdom of the old world
through the endless miles of desert
crossing the border to
the lone star, state of place and mind
cowboy hats and songs of beginnings
leading us on to the bayou
music of jazz and art connoisseurs
romanced by the French hospitality
and love’s lingering plea
continues as we voyage
the forgotten towns of rural America
entering the realm of sunshine
eternal paradise of shore and sea
the Atlantic looms before us
with its dark waters and
mysterious callings to
at last arrive in this place
where familiarity conquers fear
and loneliness dissipates
no longer beauty of the unknown
but the comfort and beauty
of Home.

- This marks the one year anniversary of our journey into the unknown. The vivid memories still live within me, reminding me of the beauty of our dreams and the comfort of our friendship. Thank you for an ineffable experience. -

Its hard to believe that it has already been a year. WOW, what a fantastic journey. The memories hit me so hard it that the emotional high brought tears to my eyes. Everything is still so easily remembered, I hope those memories last forever. It is so good to see that those moments are still so important to you. Thanks for everything. Love, Joshua.

P.S. Maybe next time it will be the olive groves we are remembering. ;)
