Gregg B.

"I don't want to believe. I want to KNOW."

Charles Town, WV, USA
male, age 57
married, 2 children
Speaks: English
Joined Nov 22, 2005
What I Want to Do:


 
My Page Billboard
I'm an unconventional, freethinking guy about to turn 50. A Sheltie rescuer, a technical writer, science fiction fan, husband and Dad. I welcome all peaceful beings to my page and life. We may disagree on issues, but we must never harm each other over them.
 
I am somewhere between agnosticism and atheism, because since we cannot have total knowledge of the universe, we cannot be entirely certain that there is no deity. However, I do not believe in the supernatural because there is no proof that it exists. I firmly believe that religion exists only to bolster our fragile racial ego against the realization that humanity is just another species, and that the universe is neither friendly nor hostile, but merely indifferent to our existence. We can go just as extinct as the smallest organism. 

I am convinced Humanity is in a crisis of its own making and that we collectively must cooperate to find our way out before it's too late.

    "The April rain, the April rain,
    Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
    Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
    And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
    And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
    The cuckoo through the April rain
    Calls once again."

    - Mathilde Blind - "April Rain"

     


     I wish you dear Friend a weekend with peace
    and that you enjoy Mother Earth beauty.
    With Love

    "What is Life?
    It is the flash of a firefly in the night.
    It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime.
    It is the little shadow
    which runs across the grass
    and loses itself in the sunset."
     
    - Crowfoot -  Blackfoot warrior and orator

     

     I wish you dear Friend, a week full of Life
    and with Peace.

    The Heart

    Each day I try to find a path
    Between my head and my heart
    Mind makes words
    But heart makes you feel them
    In a world of unexplained mysteries
    An empty heart doesnt care
    An empty heart has no love to share
    A happy heart makes you sing
    A happy heart makes you smile
    Some are old and some new
    Always making you feel something
    And we wonder how and why because:
    What is a heart?
    A muscle that has no pain
    But beats for you and the world
    Over and over again...



    ... with Love

    From old to new!

    Only a night from old to new!
    Always a night from old to new!
    And in the first day,
    My wishes are few:
    The beginning of the end
    Of all wars in the world
    That all the soldiers safe return home
    The beginning of the end
    Of the prejudice, intolerance, racism
    Hunger, greed, attacks to life.
    After that night is the first new dawn
    And may we can start from the beginning,
    Living together, without haste
    In union with kind Mother Earth.



    ... I wish you a new year full of Love and Peace
     my Friend

    "If you have only two pennies
     left in the world,with the first penny
     you should buy rice to feed your family.
     With the second penny,
    say the wise Japanese,
    you should buy a lily.
    The Japanese understand the importance
    of dreaming..."

    The Friendship I have with you
    It is unbreakable
    When you're feeling down
    All alone and unloved,
    Remember I am here for you
    Through all of the above.
    You will always be my friend
    Through whatever comes our way
    Because...
    The Friendship I have with you
    It is unbreakable like time.

    Holloween Night

    Holloween Night is such a fright
    Ghosts and Goblins are really a sight
    The witches stir brew
    The goblins they drool
    The bats fly high up in the sky
    While the children all laugh
    watching the costumes they pass
    As they knock at the doors
    They say Trick or Treat
    Only in hopes for a really sweet treat
    Holloween night is such a fright



    ... with Love

    Human Energy

    When I give light
    I also receive,
    When I smile
    I give light to others,
    they give light to me.
    It is with the light
    all of us give, all,
    that we are free.

    You have a special place in my heart
    The place that will never empty
    You take up the biggest space
    When your sick
    I will be there to confort
    When you hurt yourself
    I will be there to help
    When you heart gets broken
    I will find the peaces
    No matter where you go
    Whatever you do
    I will be here for you
    No matter what happens
    Always know I love you
    In every way I can
    I will give you my heart
    Every last bit of it
    I give you my Love
    All I have in it.



    ... thank you my friend

    Fly
    Another morning comes again
    You rise as soon as the dawn breaks.
    You force yourself to carry on,
    However much your mind aches.
    The thought of freedom,
    The tangles of love and pain,
    The things you remember to breathe for,
    The reasons you remain.
    I have one thing to ask of you;
    Just please, can you answer me why?
    How can you keep your feet on the ground,
    When you know you were meant to fly?





    ... with Love

    "Someone has said that a friend is a bank
    of credit on which we can draw supplies
    of confidence, counsel, sympathy, help,
    and love. And that is true, for if you have
    a genuine friend, you possess riches greater
    than silver or gold. Which, of course, brings
    us to the other sideof the question:
    are you, and am I, the kind of friend
    that others can treasure?"
