Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Misc. remembrance:

It's amazing how noise travels in the summer. When I was a kid in the late '70s, we had neighbors - a husband and wife named J. and E., who used to argue all the time and yell at each other. Mostly it was the wife who did all the yelling. Our kitchen window was close to their house, but didn't face their house so mom used to stand at the open kitchen window and listen to their arguments (you could hear every word, she might as well have been in the same room with them). One time the wife yelled out "And you think you're so good in bed??? Well you're not!". I don't think she eavesdropped much more after that, it was a pretty awkward moment..

Sadly, my parents were the J and E of our situation.

My folks didn't yell and argue, they just divorced each other before it got to that point

That's good, I suppose. Mine created WWIII before splitting.

Sounds ugly

J. and E. are still together, btw. If anyone was going to split up I figured it'd be those two

Always the way, isn't it? My wife's grandparents HATED each other, and that may be a mild term. But they stayed together until his death. And they were still bitter to the very end, and in the wife's case, still to this day. Sad.

I think we all know a J and E

I'm glad I wasn't J
