They Are Gone

October 23, 2011

The way the band got set up to play tonight is exciting and sad. Not enough people are here to hear them. Songs-music breaks the monotony in life. Too much strife for any one person to handle. It really gets yo me when I can’t hear the blues band. Taking in the atmosphere and a smile from my lover takes my breath away, I sigh; why oh why doesn’t he love me?  I wish upon a star for him to hold me once more.


A New Friend

July 10, 2010

I just met a man living in Nigeria

born in Ireland and residing in California

He IM (instant messaged) me on a whim

to see if I would be a friend. My reply was

yes I needed one right now.  To see what will

be is anybody’s guess. I wonder if he could be my long lost Prince.

A white horse appeared in my dreams and he came riding on the steed.

What I have been waiting for is  honesty for sure. it wouldn’t surprise

me if he were the one.

if he is the one.

The Torch Club

November 7, 2009

Lost in the music, I picked up a straw

Stirring my drink hoping oblivion,

Frightened to look inside myself.

Little known raw, sinewy feelings

What’s the difference if I let go?

My pounding heart now in my throat

Wanting to scream out but don’t know how.

Songs sung by the band remind me of my youth,

Getting home at half past four, mouth dry, spinning head.

Couldn’t walk a straight line with all that wine.

So much time has passed, can’t wait to rid the hate

It’s not too late-global warming, poverty, racism, war

What is it for? I want to know. I want to know.

I just have to know how to scream out. I want to know.

Do tell me how, tell me now.

Blood Disease

September 25, 2009

Cellular red stains I saw through the scope.


The cells of different shapes move in my nightmares.

Which is the diseased wretched one? Which is to blame?

A View of New York City

September 20, 2009

Empty taxicabs run down innocent people.

Truck drivers shout from their loft to mini-skirted girls-

Bums carry boards from nowhere to places less known.

Green-nosed busses worm through streets packed with cars.

Yellow telephone pages fly to the wind.

Reflecting Shadows on a Ship’s Wooden Planks

September 20, 2009

The sun danced with fire

Gypsies leaped three steps

Gold and white ghost spooked

It would all disappear when the sun went down.


September 18, 2009

Robins rustle outside my door.

Warmth surrounds my being,

Braid my hair with a love song

while I lay across your arm.

Quiet morning steals the night

like a cat slowly stalking his prey.

Draw near my love to my waiting eyes

wanting you.

My site has an anthem!

Gambling at Black Oak outside of Sonora

July 5, 2007

I have been having an awesome day today! 

I went into the casino around 11:30 and played for about thirty minutes.  I spotted a guy and a gal putting dollars in two machines adjacent to one another.  After they left, I went over to the machines and put in about twenty bucks before the jackpot!

 All the bells and lights went off before I realized I had hit the big time!  I got $1000 dollars on a progressive jackpot.  I am very happy and can’t believe that I have won $1800 total for the three times I have gone gambling.

I know I had to get out of there after the jackpot so I picked myself up and got my tail out of there.  I am so happy I did!

Now I am ready to go to L.A. with money in my pocket and no worries for the rest of the summer!



The Fourth of July at Angels Camp

July 4, 2007

It is hot here and definitely a day to celebrate. An interesting  incidence happened yesterday. While I was driving home from a casino, all I could say to myself over and over again was that I was a winner!

It is so much fun to walk away from a casino and say that. 

If I could pass on a tip to you, it would be to take a certain amount of money to the place and know that you can afford to lose it.  The other part is to know how much you are willing to win and then walk away. Set a limit before you go into the place.  If you want to win $300 then be willing to walk away when you win that amount.

I was very happy and glad I walked away whe I won $750.  It was like winning a huge jackpot to me.  If I decide to go back, I will still take an amount I am willing to lose so I won’t beat myself up if I lose it.

I hope this helps you if you like to gamble once in awhile.  I only gamble around my birthday once a year and I do not go any other time.

Good Luck to you in the future!
