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.

Election Day memory:

In the '76 election, on voting day, mom took me with her into the voting booth to show me the process of voting. I seem to recall that she voted for Ford. If I remember correctly, I was kind of bummed out bcause I was missing my favorite TV show. Plus, if I'd known at the time she was voting for the loser, I'd have found any excuse to stay home that night.

When I was a kid, I didn't receive an allowance. However, there always seemed to be about 45 cents in spare change I could scrape together between the cushions of the sofa in our living room. I think candy bars were about 20 cents, so I'd have some spare change left over. My folks never seemed to ask me where I got the money, and I never told them. I figured if I did tell them, they'd be more careful about the change in their pockets and my money supply would run dry. It was definitely a "don't ask, don't tell" type of arrangement..
