I recently retired from the US Air Force, after 20 years of service.  On May 1, my new job began in Washington, DC.  It involves working for a major Federal agency, responsible for protecting our national security.

For the past four and a half years, my home was in Marysville, California.  My California photos came from that period.  Before that, I was stationed in Britain, Nebraska, South Carolina, and Texas (in reverse order).

My new apartment is in the Mt Pleasant area of Washington.  It's an incredibly diverse, colorful, and interesting neighborhood.  While not the ideal place for a family, it's exactly right for a single adult like me.

As a Federal employee, I cannot engage in partisan (Democratic vs Republican) politics, but will remain active in causes that appeal to me.  If you have a non-partisan issue to discuss, keep me in mind.

    "But friendship is precious,
    not only in the shade,
    but in the sunshine of life;
    and thanks to a benevolent
     arrangement of things,
    the greater part of life is sunshine."

    - Thomas Jefferson -


     ... thank you for my sunshine my dear Friend.

    "Grown men can learn from
    very little children for the hearts
    of the little children are pure.
    Therefore, the Great Spirit
    may show to them many things
    which older people miss."

    What if you slept?
    And what if,
    in your sleep, you dreamed?
    And what if, in your dream,
    you went to heaven
    and there plucked a strange
    and beautiful flower?
    And what if,
    when you awoke,
    you had the flower in your hand?
    Ah, what then?

    - Samuel Taylor Coleridge -


    ... I wish you my dear Friend
     a week full of dreams

    Good Bye Moon

    We have roamed the wild country
    We have seen mountains grow from hills
    With my brothers and sisters
    And now our time has came
    The two-legs have come in
    And killed all of our prey
    We are all so confused
    Because what have we done?
    The two-legs killed my mother
    My brothers and sisters too
    The two-legs has got me.
    I'll be with my family soon.
    Now the two-legs is over me
    As I get one last look
    At my boloved moon.

    ... with Love

    "The Beautiful Earth"

    The glistening sun is shining
    On the sparkling water,
    The sparkling water is
    To the pretty ocean,
    The pretty ocean
    is as beautiful
    As a bachelor button flower,
    The bachelor
    button flower is
    yellow and blue
    Like the sunset sky,
    The sunset sky is giving
    peace to the Earth!

    What is a Poem
     A poem is hidden in the soundlessspeechless soft clouds
    Tossing turning twisting
    in the crystal clear aquamarine sky
    Look inside a pleasing pretty flower
    Climb immeasurable immenseimpressive mountains
    If you find a poem handle it carefully
    Like a newborn puppy
    For a poem can die or slip through fingers
    Like creamy butter
    And be lost in the dark streets
    Look in places where you
     have never been before
    And there you might find a poem
    Lost somewhere in the soft clouds
    The clear sky or a pretty flower
    Waiting for you!
    by Amber Hickman (aged 8)

    Have a great week

    Our Friendship

    Our friendship is like an ocean
    That goes down so deep
    I compare it like a rose
    Whose beauty you want to keep.

    Our friendship is like a river
    That I know will never end
    I see it like a dove
    With a beautiful message to send.

    Our friendship is like a song
    That goes on and on forever
    It is in our hearts prisoner
    That will be free for ever.

    Could we but draw back the curtain,
    That surrounds each others lives,
    See the naked heart and spirit;
    Know what spur the action gives;
    Often we would find it better,
    Purer then we think we would.
    We would love each other better,
    If we only understood.

    "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?"

    There's nothing as nice
    As someone who shares,
    Your laughter, your secrets,
    Your wishes and cares,
    Someone who's there
    Through your good times and tears,
    Who stays by your side
    As your friend through the years.

     No jewel no pearl has got it's worth.
     No one except a friend
     can be trusted.
    Your life will never ever get rusted."

    Standing by,
    All the way.
    Here to help you through your day.

    Holding you up,
    When you are weak,
    Helping you find what it is you seek.

    Catching your tears,
    When you cry.
    Pulling you through when the tide is high.

    Just being there,
    Through thick and thin,
    All just to say, you are my friend.

    ... have a wonderful weekend my dear friend

    Today I remembered: "What we see in others, may exist in us in other forms, for we are all truly from the same light."  I thank you for bringing understanding, acceptance and compassion to my reality.
