Uncaring of the labors of man

The towering waves tear souls and sails

Such fury has the mind awakened.

we stand facing The Wall

his trembling fragmentation

palpable as he whispers ‚ÄúI need to sit down‚ÄĚ

The Back Shore 11/25/08

Rough seas meant yesterday that I got to surprise The Bean at school by picking her up at noon and then taking her for a special one on one day.

We went bowling and then to Friendlies for ice cream and then downtown to get a special surprise for Snoop Mad.  Needless to say by the end of the day she was wiped out.
