  • 0) Runner's Dilemma Prose / Ballad

    In 1994 I put down everything I was doing and went for a walk to think for a while. After thinking, I tried to put my life back together; I tried to put all of the pieces that I wanted to keep into some type of perspective. I made a list of some of the things that were most important in my life at that time, played around with the words and letters for a while, and came up with the acronym; Otradom PeloGo. It became my way of saying all the things you should say to others and myself into one simple phrase. As the phrase, it's simply stated as;
    (Observe and Travel with Wisdom.
    Peace, Love, and God be with You;
    Otradom PeloGo.)... more »

  • 0) Sonnet Of The Nation's Capitol - America (Prose / Sonnet)

    1998 has been an incredible year; one of the most incredible things was to go to Washington, DC and visit the Nation's Capitol. I realized, standing there on the steps of the Capitol building, at that very moment, there was no greater place in the world to be. America's past and present made it not only one of the greatest political, cultural, and economical centers of the world, but because of all of that, one of the most spiritual centers of our world also.
    I also found it enlightening that president Clinton, his wife; first lady, Hilary, and daughter Chelsea, have one of the most demanding jobs in our nation; to vie every day of their lives, to speak appropriately, regardless of the circumstances, for the United States of America. Whether it was Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, or Bush, under the most trying circumstances, we still have the assurance that each person in that situation will continue to uphold one of the greatest political and moral duties.
    There seemed to be quite a bit about the president in the news lately; hopefully the best will turn out for all without any permanent or serious scars to any of those involved; Monica Lewinsky, and the president and his family.
    And with this new enlightenment comes also an important view; perspective; although one that's quite obvious. Whether we are a family, business, the Department of Defense, local, state, or national government, although sovereign and independent, like a machine with many different parts, we work as one, and must do that job well:... more »
