If I could come back to life as an animal, I would be a
If I could come back to life as a plant, I would be a
If I could have lunch with any historical or current person, it would be
Albert Einstein, the warm, funny, fallible human; pacifist, intellectual instigator
I could best describe my personality as
assertive, acerbic, verbal, "with the milk of human kindness by the quart in every vein"

My two top VIA Character strengths are
|Board Name||Title||MYKU||Date Written|
|ships and planes||defying||I love the press and crush
of crowds of humans in a rush
to board the bus, the train, the plane --
the elbow in the gut? I hate the pain!
|ships and planes||RIP Robert Heinlein||The arching sky is calling
spacemen back to their trade,
but we watch in the growing darkness
as Bob Heinlein starts to fade ...
|Star-fallen||Star-fallen guilt-sodden||sitting waiting for a word
knowing it will not be heard
is the guilt invoked in love
or selfishness unknown above?
|e.e.cummings||like e.e.cummings vanished||banishing mundane expressions
replacing them with sweet intentions
e.e.cummings continues to regret
we haven't learned that lesson yet
|e.e.cummings||e.e.cummings labyrinthine simplicity||letters never lost but only missing
until the wind blows
what we read and grin
and remember to go back to kissing
|e.e.cummings||like e.e.cummings in a bar||i sit and i suppose
my thoughts an alcoholic haze
and those who drink much more than i
mumble their alcoholic praise
|e.e.cummings||waiting e.e.cummings again||patience matches
the gentle snow
the words that fall
in thoughts we know
|Board Name||By||Title||MYKU||Date Added|
|Life's A Beach||Zola||RE: Small Wonders||Ascending in
my blissful bubble
and future trouble
|Before I Die||Zola||RE: before I die||Low deeds I dread, from way back when,
I should've done differently.
Although some say I must come back again,
instead I just forgive me
|Last Rights||twin_boys2||RE: RE: At Last, Lights||tripping and falling
over stumbling blocks
life's journeys evolving
mistakes have made it easier to unlock.
|After Dark||fwtho2||RE: RE: wee small hours.||I will string the moon for you
with stars like twinkling pearls
and you shall walk through blackened night
among galactic swirls.
|more shore||phoebesky||RE: Shore Breeze||the air is salty
and smells like fish
its misty and foggy
but I except its welcome kiss.
|Inter the net||volchin||shrink, shrank, shrunk||Every day I find my way
into a smaller corner.
The open air is cold and scary;
a corner is so much warmer.
|Inter the net||fwtho2||shrink||Everything seems smaller, now,
shrunken, less intense.
Today I feel that being big
doesn't make much sense.
