John Lennon Quote


I often think of this quote By John Lennon, and with the spreading pandemic, it’s more fitting than ever:  “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”

Recently, I heard Rick, from Rick and Morty, use it in their delightfully twisted cartoon show. Needless to say, I’m both a John Lennon and Rick and Morty fan.

Tough Love


My brother used to beat me

My mother used a switch

My wife cut up my yearbook

My kids must think I’m rich

My grandkids overrun me

And cause me daily strife–

I guess it’s pretty obvious

I’ve been loved all my life




the drifter



the drifter came

without a name

on crashing waves

one night

and there he stood

this man of wood

in morning’s cool


he stands and stares

but never shares

 what he’s looking


i guess someday

he’ll drift away

to find another
