I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Friends Forever

Special people come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. I think this applies to friendship, love and romance.

When someone is in our lives for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. Now it is time to move on.

Some people come into our lives for a SEASON. Your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it; it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you are a reason, a season, or a lifetime

Last weekend I rode with Blue bike Mike and some other friends to Plymouth.It was so beautiful to be by the sea and smell the salty air.We ate clam chowder which was wonderful.On the way I saw the cranberries being harvested by flooding the fields and found out later that they get a million dollars an acre for them!
During the week Trish took me to the Topsville Fair which was a big agriculture show and I saw the biggest bulls Ive ever seen in my life!! Everything is bigger in America! I saw American eagles and beautiful owls.I dont think they looked very happy to be on show tho and they looked sad.
Im seeing a lot of things and Im trying to be happy and have fun.Some days I actually achieve it...
