Celeste Earns Coach's Award

The Celestial Being earned the Coach's Award in gymnastics last night. Wow, was she ever surprised!! She got it for trying so darn hard. She was an inspiration to the other girls. She made me cry. But what is a proud papa to do?

Beautiful Dream

I woke up crying on Saturday morning. I was having a very vivid dream. I had been swimming in a public swimming pool. After I got out of the water, I went to the locker room. As I went around the corner, I found myself in a hospital. There was a door on my left that led into Bonnie’s room. I was going to go in, but I stopped myself because I didn't want to crash in on Bonnie & Jiho if they were making love. I saw a doctor, who was carrying any infant, walk across the hallway and enter Bonnie’s room. I followed him. Bonnie and Jiho were laying in separate gurneys along the wall. I woke Jiho up. He sat up. He had a dark tan. Then I went to Bonnie. As I was about to wake Bonnie up, the doctor looked at me and handed me the baby saying, "Here's your grandson." He was so beautiful, and so tan. I began to cry. I was so happy holding him. The crying woke me up. Bummer, I was having a good time holding Tiger in my dream.

I Awoke This Morning to the...

Valentine's Day is almost here. I wrote this poem for Denise more than 30 years ago.

I awoke this morning
To the soft touch of sweeping branches in the wind,
To the gentle pitter patter of rain drops on my face,
To the warm rays of the sun
smiling ever so lovingly, down upon me.
And when I opened my eyes, I saw
Not to the soft touch of sweeping branches
Nor the sight of rainy days
Pierced with the sun's shiny rays.
Rather, I awoke this morning
To my Love's soft fingers stroking my side
To my Lady's tender lips sweetly kissing my face
To my Mate's beautiful blue eyes smiling lovingly at me.
I awoke this morning
To the magic of my Soul Mate's love.
