Why I've been MIA

I've been mostly out of sight because there is LOTS for me to be on top of at the moment.

My Dad has been moved from the hospital to a physical rehab facility. There are some questions and decisions he'll have to make. We shall see what the next few days bring.

That said, I still have much to do on the job and with my writing so my apologies to everyone who has not heard or seen me in a while. I promise to do better at multi-tasking my life. ;-)

On top of all this I still have much planning ahead for more permanent housing for myself, journeys to take this year and looking for advantages rather than allow the turmoil in the media world drive me to panic. I am quite certain this will be a game changing year in many ways.

I do plan to unwind tonight... with some freshly baked brownies and the return of "Battlestar Galactica".

I promise to be more sociable by morning.

Flame and Bone

When I was made from fire
Poured into the tender vessel of caution
That keeps my smoke from rising
Quickly did I discover that apart from crisp drizzles or falling snow
The world chilled my touched
Walking the narrow cornered gap between girders and cut stone
One learns to tuck his shoulders in or risk
Jostling a neighbor passing by rapt with want
For a clear path without the distraction
Of another man's boiling eyes
The tip of a finger
That oldest of all weapons
Grown deadlier and pristine in its invention
Gathers a mote of a cinder on its bare flesh
And turns pondering how best to scratch the impious itch
Prying open the tender seam
Where the oil of thought dews
Offering a new wick to ignite
Squirming alive as a salamander of mischief
That yearns for a taste of air it is so ready to devour
The steam of breath betrays me
Before the glint of orange spreads
In popping bright waves
Eroding the fibers feeding it
Leaving naught but ash
As my shell of quietude falls away
