    The Soul Man never rested. He was always travelling, collecting, becoming heavier and heavier with every person he met. He never rested. Keeping a story, he would take a little bit of everyone with him as he traversed the world. His deep, worn pockets store his souls. He feels each and every one wi...

    I had once seen Death. He was in heavy, soul ridden capes and sheathed in a deep, dark hood of names and voices. I strained to see his face, but I could only make out the bony, angled outline of his skull beneath his murky hood. Perhaps he meant it to be that way. A faceless, yet ever present figu...

    Mr. Monroe would have been 100 today. The world is a slightly darker place without him even though the 7 billion other people still going about their daily lives do not necessarily know it. I can remember it as though it was yesterday... hearing the Duke Ellington over the Victrola record player... ...

    “Climb all the way to the top with me!” he said to his younger sister one summer day so many years ago. She was timid the first time, sure, but after a few false starts and a cut on her knee (that entailed a kiss from Mommy and a Barbie band aid, she’ll proudly tell you), she got the hang of i...

    Just snapshots of a life. A moment suspended in time. A collection of people with feelings and faces, with stories to be told. Two pictures never the same...a story and legacy all on its own. Of shadows and highlights...of exposure and of features...of rain or sun...of blur or of focus...of the hum...

    What lays beyond the blue and green we call home? In glorious silence sits countless other worlds humans can only dream about. Stars so distant, yet close enough to wish on. In which we are only part of the largest puzzle of the universe Residing under a crystal sky and wispy clouds, we ask ti...

    Her eyes were a masterpiece. The corners would crinkle when she laughed as she told her joke. She would tell the same joke every time...by the end I knew it so well I could follow the words out of her mouth...nearly reciting it along with her. We pretended we did not know it for the first ten yea...

    I did not know I loved The soft sand between my toes, The warmth of the sun on my skin The sound of the piano music flowing into my ears The melodies. The Rhythm The notes gracefully creating the beautiful sound. I did not know I loved The feeling of early morning air and the feel of the we...

    What is the most delicious, the most beautiful drink to ever graze the fingertips of humans? Just think. That’s right, if you already have not guessed; it starts with a “c” and ends in an “e”. No, no, not Coke, but rather, imagine the heavenly and smooth liquid we have come to adore; coffe...

    Huge signs that are of all shapes and sizes are plastered to the sides of buildings, on the tops of various awnings and slapped on walls and construction sites everywhere. Glittering lights illuminate every surface and poster imaginable. These shimmering lights never go off; they never sleep, or cea...

    New York City, The City that Never Sleeps, or The Big Apple. Call it what you may. When it comes down to it, it is the city of all cities. It is that little island that is identified by the tall skyscrapers, bright lights and busy streets. Remembered for the Empire State Building up which King Kong ...

    He stands in line just as he did countless times before. He studies the men before in him line with their freshly pressed Sunday suits and their shined black shoes. He then looks down at his own black dress lace up pair of shoes immediately noticing the abundance of scuffs with the holes and black...

    It was 11pm at night. He slid from his seat and toddles over to where his Mother is staring blankly at the wall in front of her. “Mommy?” he asks tugging at her pant leg. She smiles down at him, the tiredness is evident in her eyes. “Yes?” She asks. “Could I have a Soda?” He ven...

    A blend of giggles and wide smiles. Playing Hide-and-go-seek. Stifling laughs while crouching in hiding; not wanting to be found. Ever. Digging in the sandbox. Going on treasure hunts as if there was actually something majestic to be found. Fortresses made of pillows, umbrellas or even snow given ...

    I had never before realized the connection between lives and how the things that happen to one person can so dramatically affect the lives of those with whom they are close. I heard him repeating “she was so beautiful” as if they were the last words known to man. His aimless wandering matche...

    I am me; a melody that belongs to no one else Notes that string together to define me. The rhythm of my song matches the beat of my heart The lyrics formed from the thoughts swirling in my mind I am me; an open book whose words match no other. Whose pages tell the story of who I am A never ...

    Because I live in a city, initially “you have to see the nature in the place” because it won’t be apparent immediately. You must look past the manmade and seemingly anti-nature aspects that are all over and appreciate what is left once those have been subtracted. Appreciate the clear as crysta...

    When I was five my family and I went to Florida as we always did in July. A beautiful, warm and sunny day awaited me from outside the hotel doors of the Hilton Hotel we always stay at. I still remember it. There was the marble walkway leading from the elevators to the main lobby area at the front of...

    When she heard the words come from the lips of the nurse standing next to her, time lost all meaning. Seconds swirled around her head. Not true. Not true. Not true. She chanted helplessly in her head. She did not want to believe them. She wanted to close her eyes and pretend it was a dream, just a s...

    I am in love with Frankenstein. The dark and eerie tale painted across the pages yells to me to take the jump. To open to the first pages and get lost within the black splotches of ink that create the words. To become one with the characters and to try on their shoes. To feel the pain and sadnes...

    You can leave, And fly away To swoop, glide and soar. Dance through every memory, Feeling them as vividly as no other time. Let their light guide and shine. Follow and cultivate this shine Keep it near and do not let it leave. Let it grow and give it time To take you where you need, to ta...

    As time passes My body stands still Life going on around me People running, walking laughing and crying Life goes on around me while I stand still People go through me and if I’m not there Maybe I am invisible Maybe I don’t matter enough to be here, today I just sit on the corner Waiti...
