Sometimes, I feel inspired to try my hand at poetry.
For My Friend Barefoot on his bamboo longboard, its sandy deck surface easily gripped by his callused feet, he knows cruising is safe down neighborhood streets, the level boardwalk, but sometimes, sometimes hills beckon. He is ill-equipped for this winding ...

Clear Fork Fishing.
Largemouth on Clear Fork of the Trinity Saturday, I worked from 9 am until nearly 8 pm at the Bike Share, so Sunday, I decided it was time to get my canoe on the water. I had tied it to my Jeep days ago, but had not been able to get out when I first planned...

Silver maple...Acer saccharinum
"All the good ones leave." "Excuse me...what did you say?" "I said, 'all the good ones leave.'" "Why would you say that, kiddo? You know it's not true." "The last one was the best one, and she left." "Look, son, it's not a matter of 'best' and 'worst,' she ...

Thinking about the First Day of School
This weekend has been a pretty nice farewell to summer, despite the fact that my truck is in the shop with a $500.00 repair bill waiting for me on Monday. I'm excited about tomorrow, and not a little apprehensive as well. I will be teaching Art and Elective...
