Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

I hope no one considers this a political blog because I promised never to instigate one but this is about that other SOB that had those three girls/babies/woman for ten years and I'm in tears right now wanting to rip his f'n throat out. He better be thankful that my fam or friends were not his prey because I would find a way to get to him.....but wtf.. the media will probably find a way to say he's a victim too....I'm sick of it...and I'm sick of these freaks to live in our jails and we pay for this human refuse to live....now I'm getting off this computer before I break it with a bat----God bless and save those young ladies if he can--but I fear it might even be beyond his--------------never mind......

    Those girls will never be the same... But life WILL be a healing process for them... And they are free of his torture and abuse.

    Hi Craig: Evil like this that comes from someone who appears to be ordinary is the most terrifying. The ultimate deception because of the cowardice and lying. It is more chilling than evil that has a true face as there is no defence ready for it. I posted a poem last night about the shapeshifting kind of evil..... we always pray we are in the company of angels. I hope your amethyst room is looking inviting. Love, SuZ

    I cannot get my head around it, how one person can do such horrible things to any other person. I can't even say the punishment that I think he deserves. Disgusting... Betty

    You are not alone........it seems every day there is some new and horrific story in the news. It is almost more than one can bear, to hear tomorrow's news. So so sad to know that such people walk the streets. :(

    I feel the same rage Craig. in fact I have a poem posted. I cooled it down from what I wanted to say about my reaction but it's not about me. And it really got to me that he was a school bus driver. I don't know what the answer can be to this human garbage. Joyce
