little white lies

Monday, October 22nd 2007

we tell ourselves
little white lies
to get out of a jam
a tiny jam
an appointment
we overlook
a gym class
we're just not
in the mood
a day at work
we just can't face

and so we
make up a story
95% true
and we cover
the truth
about why we
can't do
what we
planned to do
and we feel better
because no one
was hurt
and no one
know the truth
except you
and it's ok

but sometimes
it's not really ok
and people see
through the lie

hyde park, ny

Sunday, October 21st 2007

yesterday we took a drive up to hyde park, new york. it's the home of the culinary institute of america, several historical mansions on the hudson river and the wonderful eveready diner. while we went to see the mansions, the highlight of course was the diner...:)

we didn't get on the road until after 2:00 pm and there was a lot of traffic (lots of leaf peepers!) so by the time we got to fdr's home it was almost 3:45 pm. we signed up for the 4:30 home tour and headed to the museum and l...

please, my autumn

Saturday, October 20th 2007

it feels like july
on this hot autumn day
it's confusing my brain
it shouldn't feel this way

i have enough bad hair
on hot august nights
you should see it today
it is just not right

the leaves haven't turned

they don't know what to do

instead of apple cider
i am making iced tea
and feeling so clammy
i hate humidity!

i shouldn't complain
the cold will be here soon
and then i'll be praying
for the warm su...

a world without shame

Friday, October 19th 2007

recently, there has been an incredible increase in hate crimes in the New York area. i can not tell you how sad this makes me. i want to believe that things are different today. i want to believe that parents who teach intolerance no longer exist. i want to believe that my generation, the baby boomers, really did change the world. i want to believe that we are leaving the generations to come a better place to live. i want to believe, but today i just can’t.

the gift you really are

Wednesday, October 17th 2007

every move we make
so often seems planned
like a game of chess
where will we really land?

we think we know
but we don't often do
the game is chance
the player is you

or all of us
who face each day
doing all we can
watching what we say

and what we do
stay fit and strong
can't make a mistake
don't want to be wrong

all games have rules
but the rules aren't clear
life without instructions
when will we get there?

get where, you ask
well i am ...
