Night is the

wonderful opportunity

to take rest,

to forgive,

to smile,

to get ready

for all the battles

you have to fight tomorrow.

Here it is, evening time:

the sun sets earlier every day.

And I know there are battles

I will have to fight again tomorrow.

Work has become very unpleasant

on days when I have to work with

my associate who I refer to as Elvis. 

Every Monday when I return after

a weekend off, there's no telling

what he's done to create another bad situation. 

This week was no different. 

Eight work hours never dragged on soooo long.

Thank goodness for a 4-day weekend coming up!

More when I return.  Happy weekend, my friend!

Strongest Weakness

He was my strongest weakness

I surrendered heart and soul

Its gonna be a long, long time

'Til I regain control

I'm still a prisoner

Held captive by his memory

He was my strongest weakness

And I'm afraid he'll always be

October always seems to bring up

those long ... lost ... feelings .....

This quote is a chorus from a song

I heard on the radio and it reminded me

of those who have passed through my life.

As with every life situation, there is always

the good and the bad, happy times, sad times,

and those moments of disagreement where

you think you'll never find even ground.

But if you're like me, you have one

who's the strongest weakness,

the one who crosses your mind

in the darkest hours of night. 

And even though it's been years,

you find yourself wishing ... again.
