Living this daydream…

This is a piece of me. For you. For the Earth. For Sky God. For the underdog. Give us what we need. Give us nothing. For in that nothing we find what fills us. Within life. Within death. Our peace is coming it is heaven sent. Peace in me. Peace in you. Living this daydream.

It’s FALL Y’ALL!….well..sorta

Who you calling short?…..

So when you drop a ton of weight, one of the drawbacks is on your pocket-book. You gotta buy new clothes some time! On Tuesday evening I made my pilgrimage to my local favorite fat store. I scoured through the racks of brightly colored summer offerings searching for what had quickly become an elusive and
