I would apologize for this most neglected site except that you can find me one of these places...

Or I'm hanging out with great artists and musicians at this newly opened site of my friend Michele Andree Lemieux in Canada. Imagine interviews with great artists and musicians from around the world..Actually you don't have to imagine...They bare their souls about their art and their music ...if you into jazz you are in for a special treat. There are also articles on Health and Wellness

We'll be Forever Friends

What began in dawning spring, now is winter's night.

Come walk a ways with me on my journey to the light.

Take my hand; we'll just walk and talk a while.

We'll be forever friends, go that extra mile.

Lots to share and lots to tell... that I am for sure.

I'll tell of hopes and dreams, memories to endure.

I've traveled so many paths, with many a hurt and sting.

Seems like minutes ago, but it was early... in the spring.

I don't know where the time has gone since way back then.

Lots of trouble sorting things out .. the where.... the when.

I remember summer, the warm breeze blowing through my hair,

Laughing memories, “did this”, “did that”, as my life I share.

There were hard times, pain beneath a heavy load. I agree!

Yet there were the times of beauty as far as you could see.

It was in the fall, as leaves turned from green to rust, gold, red,

I took a soulful look at the wandering paths I'd tread.

At times, don't always know the best way I should go.

I get lost! Lose my way...take paths piled deep in snow.

Winter is the greatest challenge, if truth be told .

My head says spring; my body shivers in the cold.

Now I see a turn ahead, one veering to the right.

I know that's your way; I must go toward the light.

Perhaps, beyond that unknown space of where and when,

Our paths will cross, then merge, and we'll be friends again.
