O happy living things ! no tongue
Their beauty might declare :
A spring of love gushed from my heart,
And I blessed them unaware :
Sure my kind saint took pity on me,
And I blessed them unaware.

The self-same moment I could pray ;
And from my neck so free
The Albatross fell off, and sank
Like lead into the sea.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner--Coleridge

Who are you? Who, who? Who, who?

So it's been awhile, almost 2 awhiles actually. I've been given a fortune, improved my life and the lives of others, and now I'm back to working 2 jobs trying to pay bills.  We have a wonderful home on an acre of land with a pool and a shared lake, and neighbors that are real people who talk over fences and throw snowballs.  Kids are growing up and my IQ is dropping, so everything is normal. Now that the drama is mostly out of my life, my artistic muse has moved on.  I still have occasional artistic flair-ups, but they've burned out around helping kids with homework or taking some snapshots at school/church events.  I feel some stirrings beginning to grow, but with all the time I'm putting in at work, I'm not sure when or if I'll actually act on it.

I'll try to do some stuff for posting over the winter months, or possibly post some stuff I've done in the past 2 years.  So Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends, and Merry Christmas, too.

Copy, edit, add your own, and post. Keep it going and growing.
