Sometimes the things that may or may not be true…


Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things that a man needs to believe in the most: that people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love, true love, never dies… No matter if they’re true or not, a man should believe in those things because those are the things worth believing in. – Hub McCann (Secondhand Lions)


captured glory…


you’ll never know what might have been
fractions away from captured glory
the winds of fate that gave this storm
never to be reads our story

sunlight bursting through your window
unaccustomed to shimmering light
blinding all that is not true
oh how quickly you took flight

still you dance a beautiful waltz
charm the birds out of the tree
look into the burning fire
somewhere there – you’ll find me.

Once a past life reader told me…

Ralph Stover Tombstone
that I was someone very famous in my past life. That made me happy until I found out that the woman who was supposed to marry me – died from a accidental Laudanum overdose, after her father put an end to any such union. Our paths crossed again in this lifetime. It did not go well at all and haunts me to this day. Anyway, this is the woman’s tomb, who should have been famous too. I’ve super imposed an actual epitaph from another woman’s grave, who also died in the 1800’s and was in her 20’s – because it touched me in a way that could never be put into words. So much for past life readings you never asked for in the first place, star-crossed lovers, and twin flames that go down in flames…
