cold on the porch
but not giving up yet
coffee and blanket
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

wind howling round my door
what was born in the far north
first snow
Doll, you may have found a place of rest but I'm still on the trail.

generations pay homage
let's reconsider

a frosty night
the dog barks me awake...
something outside...
.
I'm not an outlier. I just haven't found my distribution yet.

bowling night
the ducks will be flying
as we eat the turkey

duckpins is more
than a sport
it is camaraderie

this disparate group
in every way imaginable
come together to laugh

oh orange one
can't you see the beauty
in this
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

Turkey in the straw
Mashed potatos and corn
Cold November day

Kurosawa fortress hidden
The gold beneath a lagoon
Escape plan saves day

Immortal warrior living
Old hut down by the river
Bang-bang your dead
me I feel like I'm becoming some kinda Kung fu t.v. Priest.....
