'Someone Close' - My travels took me far away sometimes ten thousand miles. 'Unfamous Quotes' - Keeping a secret is good for you until it comes out. 'You Apart Of Me' - So Pen in hand, I promise you ten thousand meters high. ' A Daughter's Plan' - Instead of nine months, only six you snuggled in my wife. 'Red Beans And Rice' - We gazed upon the hardwood entrance trimmed in silk brocade. 'Change of Seasons' - With arms that shiver, lips that quiver, and stutter in our speech, 'A Most Peculiar Way' - Applause suggested I was great.

About the Author

I have been a son, a brother, a student, a good friend, a folksinger, a woodshop instructor, a husband, a father, a computer professional, a webmaster, an online purchaser, and a poet. I've traveled to over 40 countries in my younger days, and as I reflect on my life, I've enjoyed myself where ever and when ever I've been. I give what I can. Lucky Me.
