Favorite Quote:
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."
--Dr. Seuss


The silence of rain
On a tin roof
Is not silent at all
But deafening
And with its roar it blocks
All of the noise
That otherwise would be heard

The silence of the snow
In February
Is so quiet it is
Suffocating.
What was beautiful in
December
Now traps me

And I long for
The summer silence
Of rain on a tin roof.
