Mystery of Love

Love is life’s ultimate mystery A lock with only one master key Hearts beating with symmetry An invitation to create history There you are and here I am Cruelly separated by a witch’s curse Sending you one way, me another A kindred soul, not alone in the universe Searching the heavens my thoughts return empty … More Mystery of Love

Life is Short

Growing Younger

Mile marker number 64 is dead ahead for me. Maybe “dead” is not the best word to use.  Anyway, around and around in orbit we go.  On the occasion of birthdays, one may feel a bit philosophical.
