I apologize for my silence as of late. I’m putting together loads of new things, including having this blog set up as my main website. It’s been a process, and focus needed to be on this beginning. Look for everything to be officially launched on March 19th. (Although I will likely post new stuff before then, as I build the site up for the next step) Writing has always been a 2nd tier reality but a 1st tier dream. It’s time that changes. Up until now, I’ve had the drive, but resources and time were never on my side. Thankfully, that’s changing. Thank you to everyone who reads and follows this blog. Stick around, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
The people in your life should never be compared to an item.
They should hold a value of so much more.
There shouldn’t even be a comparison of people,
against the things you can buy in a store.
A person or memory cannot be possessed like an everyday item,
for they’re far to precious to simply place a dollar amount.
They cannot be replaced if broken or lost,
unlike an item sitting on shelves with a seemingly endless count.
If you hold an item at a value greater than a simple dollar sign,
Those things you possess will gain possession over you.
Treasure your memories and those people held dear,
and realize its precious over possession in all you do.
To run away from a problem will not solve it. Unless you face it now, it will just sit there, waiting for you to lower your guard, and then hit you twice as hard as the first time.
Your destiny will always be right in front of you, just one step away. It’s your choice which step comes next, so don’t get caught staring at your own feet.
Original post: January 2015
A year of passion, A year of pain, A year of loss, A year of gain. It hasn’t been the best, nor has it suffered as the worst, It seemed like an ever-filling cup, yet it never quenched our thirst. We nearly froze from the start, things broken left and right, troubles with health never went away, yet we continued the noble fight. A summer that chilled to the core, A winter that blasted us with snow, People passing on all around us, each tear a flood as we let them go. The year has ended here tonight, but the battle for our souls rages forevermore, Last year has passed us by and yet we wonder, what will this year have in store? Treasure each and every moment, as if each breath may be your last, because as we all should know by now, this year will go by very fast. God Bless and Happy New Year.
The problem with the common approach to Autism is the perception it states an individual with Autism has towards the world. They treat an individual as if the light bulb of senses is dimmed, and unable to fully process what he/she takes in. The truth is, however, that the bulb is in fact, blindingly bright to the point where it’s difficult to maintain proper focus on specific sensory intake. Think of a computer with a ultra high tech graphics and sound cards, but with the standard processor. If we accept this, than we can work with the individual to develop life skills and be independent.

Hey everyone, Thank you for following my blog. I really hope you’ve enjoyed my work and posts on here. As many of you know, Christmas is very close. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, I do hope you have a wonderful time in whatever your beliefs guide you to this time of the year. I do have a small request, a wish as it were, from all of you. Poetry isn’t my only material, and though I share my poetic words with you freely, the other stuff does cost money. Fear not, I do my best to be inexpensive, but with a family of 5 (Me, wife, and three incredible kids), life does require I cannot give it all away (Wish I could). My Christmas wish is that you purchase 1 of my three stories and books, and leave a review after reading. Here are your choices.
