There are no deep philosophical teachings, no profound statements, no earth-shaking revelations here, just my thoughts.
Though poetry has always been a part of my life, and I have written some in the past, I lay no claim to being a poet.
The events of September 11, 2001, and its aftermath, awakened in me, once again, the desire to put pen to paper.
Hopefully, the thoughts presented here will cause you to smile, laugh, ponder, or even inspire you to jot down your own thoughts and share them with others.
