good morning Jack

rigorous adherence to reality

s c o t t

w i n d o w s

were   i   to   listen

               to well-meaning but
       oppressive advice
i   would   be   lost

aesop fable
           old man, boy and donkey
taking to heart
every opinion along the way
 until they killed
their prized beast of burden

our prized beast
          is what we carry within
the thing making you you

a bit intoxicated with living

good morning Justin

l u n c h     a t     t w o

it's still 91 in the shade

yet leaves are falling

crickets chirp per normal

heading toward halloween

here's to another thousand days

say one and all
