Hey everyone,

As you might know, I have published my own poetry book ‘My Wings’ in April this year.

This collection contains 111 poems divided into two parts: My Dark Wings & My Light Wings.

Part 1 My Dark Wings is a collection of dark poetry describing some very recognizable emotions like: grief, fear, frustration, melancholy, depression, but also the strength and courage to battle on no matter what.

Part 2: My Light Wings is a collection of light poetry containing motivation, love, support and the will to enjoy life.

This poetry book is illustrated with some amazing black & white photographic artwork.

You can find more information about the paperback version of this book right HERE.

Cover My Wings

Very soon I will be releasing the EBook version of this book as well.

So keep an eye out for it! :)

Below you will find one of the poems from my poetry book…

1st Phase Surgery Done

Now the trip home later today to begin recovery. Tin Man and Six Million Dollar Man jokes may begin now)))))))))))))))) Tallied up the medical costs of my upkeep since becoming a legal Adult, passed the $6M years ago apparently according to my Accountant, my adopted Brazilian daughter. She jokingly said if I was a business investment, she’d already advised me to sell and cut my losses.

Sure glad she’s not my doctor or insurer.

As I reflect on the future of healthcare in the US, I become concerned about her “joke” that could soon become reality in this great adopted country of mine and my Clan.

But that’s a story that needs more research and work than I can complete today. Besides the post-op drugs aren’t reliable and there’s no telling what I’d write and how fast the NSA or other “friendly” governmental agencies would take offense and action and come looking to kick this old dog while he was down. Silly rabbits, I may be slower, but never disabled or an easy target. HAHA

I’m slowly shaking off the drugs that kept me still during calcium removal, smoothing and sanding operations of one ankle today. So far no pain, I must be paying for the “GOOD STUFF.” Good thing, I’m covered under pre-existing conditions.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am what the United States Marine Corps and Department of Defense considers “Certifiable __________.” You can fill in your own blanks from observing me in the past. I am a lot better person than Years or Lives ago, many will testify in disbelief. I have a sense of humor and not afraid to use it, you have been forewarned.))))))))))))))))))

Have a great day, all.

More updates if anything interesting happens or if I get too bored sitting around unable to chase kiddies or attractive women.

A fellow can dream, can’t he.

After an especially long and exhausting drive or flight, a grueling week at work, or a mind-numbing exam period — what’s the one thing you do to feel human again?

What’s the one thing that I do to feel human again? I usually get back to doing the things that I love. There really isn’t just one thing for me. What I normally do after a long drive or flight is either write about my trip and recent experiences or look at the photos that I’ve taken as I am constantly taking photographs of everything, everywhere I go :). Now if it’s after a grueling week at work, I start my weekend by going out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants and order my favorite food then watch a movie after, preferably comedy or romantic comedy. I really don’t want to watch a stressful movie after I’ve had…
