Welcome to my Haven on the web! Slip off your shoes and come on in! There's a fire burning in the fireplace, there's great music on the stereo, and we can talk about anything in the world. Here, you'll see what my latest musing, rant, or other opinions are, updated weekly. Feel free to sign the guest book, email me, or just wander on through. Who I am will show up in the words on this page. Let's get to know each other! 5-14-99 Came across a poem today, written by Robert Blandings. I'd say it just about sums up my life in a well-written poem (just change the gender, and this could be my life!) THE DOUBLE LIFE How very simple life would be If only there were two of me: A Restless Me to drift and roam; A Quiet Me to stay at home. A Searching One to find his fill Of varied skies and newfound thrill, While sane and homey things are done By the domestic Other One. And that's just where the trouble lies, There is a Restless Me that cries For chancy risks and changing scene, For arctic blue and topic green, For deserts with their mystic spell, For lusty fun and raising Hell. But shackled to that Restless Me- My Other Self rebelliously Resists the frantic urge to move. It seeks the old familiar groove That habits make. It find content With hearth and home -- dear prisonment, With candlelight and well-loved books, And treasured loot in dusty nooks. With puttering and garden things And dreaming while a cricket sings. And all the while the Restless One Insists on more exciting fun: It wants to go with every tide, No matter where...just for the ride. Like yowling cats the two selves brawl Until I have no piece at all. One eye turns to the forward track, The other eye looks sadly back. I'k getting wall-eyed from the strain, (It's tough to have an idle brain) But One says "Stay" and One says "Go" And One says "Yes" and One says "No". And One Self wants a home and wife And One Self craves the drifters's life. The Restless Fellow always wins.. I wish my folks had made me twins.
