Favorite Quote:
"I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center."















-Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.


Family sits at the table.
Cards are shuffled, dealt.
Crackers crunch,
Cheese is sliced off the block;
Stainless steel knife.
Beer can cozies, napkin plates.
Yelling, laughing, “In your face!”
Twelve stacks of red rectangles,
Peeking, hiding, “Don’t you cheat!”
Sunburnt faces, twangy voices.
Different futures, collective past.
Same blood, same name.
Same Family.?

My family on vacation. Lots of fun. Quite a wild bunch.
