I am a retired school teacher. I fought in the Viet-nam conflict and received a purple heart. I am married and have two children. My wife is handicap and I help her alot. I like to write children’s stories and I used to do it while teaching. As my students would listen I decided to use them as a teaching guide. My students needed a lot of help and I incorporated their names in my stories while using vocabulary works and composition writing to encourage them. They loved the stories and I made thousands of copies because they wanted to read them to their little brothers and sisters, and later on in life they tell me they are reading them to their children. Oh, even their parents would tell me that they too had read them. Well, I promised them that some day I would publish them because the really wanted a hard copy. Now, into the future, I had to retire due to my wife’s illness and handicap. I love writing even if nobody reads them anymore.
This is an up date. My wife died about a year and a half ago and I hold her memory dearly so I am not changing what I had written prior to this. Thank you!

Consumed In Dreams

It is not easy to wake up from a dream and wish you could go back and change something, say something you forgot to say, or just stay a little longer. Many times some of my dreams are subjects that I wished to have addressed either before they left, or maybe wish I could do something more. Losing oneself in these dreams are very constant with me because I seem to have lost my way. Yes, literall…

Caught With My Pants Off

I was sitting by the lake, lonely and cold because there was no one but my dog to take. He and I have been the best of friends for a while, sometimes we just stare into each other’s eyes for a very long while. Deep inside the mind we seem to understand that companionship can be so kind. Somehow we know that when one of us must leave this place, we must stay strong since life and death is not a r…
