Passing stranger! you do not know How longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking,
Or she I was seeking
(It comes to me as a dream)
I have somewhere surely
Lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall'd as we flit by each other,
Fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,
You grew up with me,
Were a boy with me or a girl with me,
I ate with you and slept with you, your body has become
not yours only nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes,
face, flesh as we pass,
You take of my beard, breast, hands,
I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you
when I sit alone or wake at night, alone
I am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.
May their Hope Give Us Hope May their Strength Give Us Strength May their Faith Give Us Faith Love and Beauty Called them Someplace Higher Somewhere Up the Stairs Into the Fire -Sept. 11, 2001
Quote Of The Month: However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. God will see that you do want society. -Henry David Thoreau
December 25, 2005- Put simply, do the Santa Claus thing to your heart's content, but don't call it Christmas! For Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior, nothing more and nothing less. Christians are rightly offended when the Santa Claus fairy tale is called Christmas instead. A good and practical solution would be to move the Santa Claus holiday back to its traditional date of Dec. 6. But of course, it is highly unlikely that this will happen.
Perhaps Christians should celebrate Christ's birth at another time of the year - especially since we do not know the date he was actually born. January 6 is an improvement, but it is still too close to the Santa Claus fest, in my opinion. Again, I won't hold my breath waiting for this to happen!
December 19, 2005- The Graduate is a great film and I grow to love it more with each viewing. Everything is nearly perfect about it. The script, Mike Nichols' direction, the performances of Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft and Katherine Ross, the music of Simon and Garfunkel. It's funny yet dramatic, moving and profound all at the same time. A very enjoyable film all around. Modern day "Indie" music is like this throwback to the acoustic folksy rock of the 60s, so of course sounds a lot like our friends Simon and Garfunkel, who of course play the music for this wonderful movie. Also, Hoffman's hair and dress, along with his painful awkwardness and his conflict with the people who surround him ("people of society", so to speak), means that if this film was made today, it would be the Ultimate Indie Hipster Film. It's practically a Garden State, only without the cheesy happy ending and even better performances.
I don't know exactly what that means, or even if it means anything at all. It's just something really interesting about how this film looks considering contemporary culture. It's not dated, per se, it's just that a lot of its motifs are weirdly similar to a cheesier and cheaper social subculture, even if it was made almost 40 years earlier. December 16, 2005- This is Jim Furyk the most successful athlete to come out of Lancaster, my hometown. He is one of the best golfers in the world and started as a member at Media Heights in Lancaster. The inspiration for me and most golfers in this area. Mostly known for his funky swing.

Finished in the top five (No. 4) on the TOUR money list for the third time in his 12-year career in a season which included his 10th TOUR win and a career-high four runner-up finishes...In July, picked up his first win since the 2003 Buick Open and since his wrist surgery in early 2004 at the Cialis Western Open. Shared the first- and third-round leads. Fell four behind leader Ben Curtis through three holes of Sunday's final round but fought back with five birdies over the remainder of the round and finished with a 2-under 69 to defeat Tiger Woods by two strokes.December 9, 2005-Its been awile since I have updated this site, almost a year. In that year Tiger Woods has won two majors. He is well on his way to catching Jack and I'm predicting he will.

So, I'll update all the winners I've missed.February 4, 2004-The one-second flash of Janet Jackson's breast at the Super Bowl could end up putting the brakes on years of plunging standards in the down-and-dirty entertainment industry.

It remained unclear whether Jackson, scheduled to be on the show, would appear.
