I want to live.

It is so peaceful right now.  The only sound I hear is the fan, and it is comforting.

I am tired, but I promised myself that I'd write tonight.

I want a better life.  I'd like to not live pay check to pay check.

I wish that my son could go to school and not have me worrying whether or not I'm going to get "that" call. 

I want to give my son a home.  Not just a place we call home, but an actual HOME.

I want to be successful in life so my son's can succeed.

I want to stop worrying...stressing...fearing.

I want to live my life without doubt.

I just want to live my life.

I want to live.

Soulful Sounding Singer...

I've known this talented young man for a few years now and I have finally gotten a hold of one of his videos. For copyright purposes I can not divulge the song name, but I can tell you that it is awesome. I look forward to him becoming the superstar within.

 You are a Rock Star DB!

If this is viewed by two, twenty, or two thousand people it was worth my time posting it.  He is totally worth it.

The angels have your back DB!

It's a Saturday morning and the sun is promising a warm and fun filled afternoon.  You jump out of bed, scramble into some play clothes, and head to the kitchen for breakfast.  Not wanting to waste too much time, you opt for cereal.  Quickly, you rush through brushing your teeth, and pull your hair into a ponytail. Dad is reading the newspaper in the living room and mom is reading her book at the kitchen table, so you say "I'm going to Heather's house." out loud.  No one disagrees and you leave to go see your friend. Once you get to her house you see that she is already waiting and so is her sister Amy.  It's time to play. 

Times were much simpler back then.  We didn't worry when children left the house and ran off to play with others. My brothers and I would go off on adventures in the woods.  We would hike to find blueberries, or to find a fishing spot.  Snake hunting and slug exterminations were the norm.  I loved spending time with my brothers.  It was a much needed change of pace when I had met my friends.

Over the years that have passed, I have realized that the conditions of friendships that remain strong and true are those that are loving and trustworthy.  The bonds that tie you with your friends should run deep.  You may feel like brothers and/or sisters, or maybe cousins if you have parents that are close friends.  

You shouldn't worry if you aren't making friends right away.  It's OK to sit back and wait.  The friends you want will be there forever.  They will go for days on end with not hearing from you and pick up from the last conversation you had.  They don't judge you even if you are wrong.  They listen intently while you pour your heart out.  They hug you.  

You, in return, must do the same.

The best part of friendship that I have learned is that it comes from the least likely of places.  I still have my Heather and Amy, but I have gained some truly amazing people in my life.  Don't be afraid to reach out. 

That one person that you smile at in the check-out line might end up as your friend for life. 

You never know.

I want a remote control for my life.  I wouldn't abuse it.  At least I'd like to think I wouldn't.  I just would like to go back to some moments in my life when I could have made the better decision.  Notice I did not state "the right" decision.  I'm finding myself, at this point, caught in a rut and I'd very much like to be Adam in that very cute, yet cheesy movie "Click".  Sorry Adam. I adore you.

There comes a moment before each choice you make that you pause and that's your brief opportunity to choose.  Every time you make your choice you lead yourself down a different path with the hope of eventually ending up on the right one.  The Labyrinth of Life is what I call it.

I would like to go back to grade school and stand up to my bullies. I'd tell them that "sticks and stones may break my bones", but their words really did hurt me. {Yeah...Delete.} I'd find that girl that helped me in the 7th grade when I passed out and my books went everywhere.  I'd like to thank her. {Rewind and Pause}  In High School, when I couldn't seem to fit in anywhere, there were others, just like me, that cared and befriended me.  I thank you all as well.

In my 20's I had a devil-may-care attitude.  I tossed my sensibility aside and just went what I thought would be fun.  At this point my first son was a toddler, Aaron. At this point I should have been there for him, not me. Choices. It was a poor one. I'd love to rewind it, but the path was chosen.  I couldn't go back.  I'd just have to make it right going forward.  Choices.

In my 30's I marry what I thought was the love of my life only to find out I'd be divorcing him 2 years later.  Choices.  I chose to stay with him even though I knew he was as unhappy as I was.  Choices.  We get a divorce, but are now casual friends.  I could have been a bitter person, but I chose not to be.

In my 30's my son Z was not planned.  The best surprise ever. Choice. Neither his father or I were prepared for him.  The choice was there, but there was no questioning for us.  He was happening.  And it's a rewind moment for me when I told him that after 3 tests that "Yes. It is positive."

Fast-forward to the present and you have me and my two sons.  One is a Marine, and the other a sensitive 3rd grader with a love for science.  Both were born out of spur of the moment choices, and I would not change those choices at all.

I am not saying you should make wrong choices to make the right outcome.  I want everyone to just think first, and act later.  Choices can define who you are for the rest of your life.  And I don't know anyone who "wants" to be labeled/branded/bullied ever.

I am now 42 years old and enjoying making others happy.

You rule your life. Choose wisely.

Save the Melting Pot!

 I've been banging my head against the wall.  Why?  Well let's start with the ridiculous media coverage on events that have been so far pounded into the ground that they are creating bullshit out of the dust.

I'm not going to glorify them by typing their names.  Nor am I going to rant about the political misgivings that are currently trending.

My issue is the problem that is arising in our society at present.  We have become afraid of our fellow Americans. We have become distrustful of one another so much so that we do not offer help in situations where helping one another should be instinct. 

I thought that America was the melting pot of the world.  We have people of all races, heritage, religion, and ethnic background.  We are Americans because "We" , regardless of our lineage, exist in a country where we are supposed to be equals.

Social media has driven us to lessen ourselves.  We pay more attention to what "they" are saying than to what is actually happening around us.  I can not truthfully state that I do not pay attention to what is said on Social Sites, but I can say that I have had great restraint in not participating in the BS (Meaning politics, religion, and media sensationalism revolving around certain individuals that, again, I will not name.) 

Moving forward,  I'd like to address an issue that is bothersome to me.  It's called "Helping your fellow man/human/person".

It's not that hard, really.  All you have to do is remember "There are good people out there and some may need your help."  I know that trust is hard to earn, but imagine if we stopped being so stubborn and just helped each other.  How much better we as individuals would feel?  I can see it happening, but only when a tragedy occurs.  Don't let this be when you choose to rise up and help.  Do it proactively.  Help anyone that needs it now.   

This was something that happened to me today:

By now everyone should realize that there truly is a heat wave happening. If you see someone in distress the right thing to do is offer help. When did we all become self absorbed and mistrustful? On my way to my Mom's house after work I saw an elderly man with a cane struggling to walk and shaking, both lanes of cars just passing him by. I thought he may be having a heart attack or a heat stroke, so I found the nearest driveway and spun around. I pulled over across the street and ran over to him (there were two pedestrians walking across the road from him that didn't even bat an eye). I asked him if he was OK and should I call an ambulance. He said "No. I just have problems walking and I can't see very well." So I asked him where he was going and could I offer him a ride.

It turns out he just wanted to get to the Puerto Rican restaurant across from ST Ann's church. I gladly gave him a ride. This poor man was hardly able to get in my car. I had to help him get in and out of my car, and he was so grateful he kept offering to by me something to eat. He said that the world needed to have more people like me. I told him that there is always hope, and to never lose faith.

When I got in my car the only thing I could think of was "What if that were me? Would anyone stop to help me?" Think about it. People tend avoid potential situations due to the surroundings they are in. (South Main St in Waterbury, CT is not where you'd want to pick someone up. Yet..I did.)

It only takes a moment of your time to make a huge difference in someones life.   Take that moment and do something.

United we stand.  Divided we fall.

God Bless us all.

It's so hot my thought's are melting!

It currently 85 degrees and the sun is down.   The weather person has promised a break in the humidity by the end of the week.


You said the same thing last week, and yet we are still baking like unattended food left in a car while attending to errands.

The only promise of some sort of relief is when the overcast clouds threaten a storm, and at that point I am rejoicing "Please rain! Please.!".

What makes matters worse is that people become delusional in high heat.  It's not funny, nor a joke.  When a person who has been in high levels of heat and has not been hydrating themselves, they are high risk of heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke.  You should always keep drinking water, and avoid caffeinated and/or alcoholic products due to the diuretic properties that will further agitate the issue at hand.

I know it's Summer and everyone wants to have fun, but have fun safely!

"Safety first... no one wants to come back from the dead smacking themselves on the head because they didn't listen!"
