I’m on the winding journey
“Why in Ding?”
A little left
A little right
Wondering when wandering
Wandering when wondering
The winding journey
belongs to the pioneers.

Being in Water

Being in water is like
receiving a great big giant hug.
Being hugged all over.
A full body hug.
And I guess that’s what I need right now.
I Love Contradictions

I have always preached,
“The best art forms contain the greatest contradictions.”
I love contradiction. It is the drama of our existence.
Right now, I am humored by the earth being blanketed by cool virgin snow.
Meanwhile, my burning heart is inflamed with the passion of my prime.
The earth is being cooled and my soul is flaming hot.
My nerdy and shy highschool friend is now a diva.
Another boy has pleasantly matured.
Popular friends have vanished
and unknown ones have become beacons of light.
Life has a way of leveling
and bringing the obscure to the spotlight
and the stars to the pit.
Life is full of drama and…
the best drama is full of contradictions.
Who would have known
we would all end up here?
“I write because I love to write…. Long years ago when the world was new for me, I dreamed of being a composer–wrote songs, many of them. The words took fire and the music smouldered and so, following the lead of friends and critics, I turned my face toward poetry and put my songs away for a while. Then came drama. I was persuaded to try it and found it a living avenue–and yet–the thing left most unfinished, less exploited, first relinquished, is still nearest my heart and most dear.” –Georgia Douglas Johnson
