I am now living my two thousandth life.
Actually, 2,784th.
First, I was a hippie. I danced whether there was music or not.
Whether alone, or surrounded by thousands.
I took college classes and
hung out on the Boston Common with my guitar.
We marched for the end of the War.
Then I joined the War.
I was in uniform,
(Okay. Hippies had uniforms too, but this was a real uniform.)
I marched.
(Okay. Not the same kind of marching that hippies do.
Real marching.
With a marching band and flags and very serious people on all sides.
I did not fit in well.
I opened a off-base off the base coffeehouse
where we sang hippie-ish songs and
waited for the end of our hitch
while some of our friends
serious and otherwise
died.
Really.
I started writing.
School books.
Little stories for fifth grade or third grade
that taught that the world was open
and how to spell the word 'raisin'.
Then I went into television.
(Okay, not into the television, into television news.
Which was news then and not infotainment,
but saying that makes me sound like an old hippie.
Which apparently I have become.
And on the way
I married.
Several women.
but not all at once.
even I am that smart.
My grown up children are musicians and kinda hippie like.
I have days when I am glad about that
and I have days when regrets, I have a few.
(Apologies to Paul Anka)
I practiced yoga.
I ran 60 miles a week.
I referee-ed soccer games
and rode my bicycle thousands and thousands of miles.
Threw a paper route
painted apartments,
sold furniture,
bought wire and gears and god knows what
for a factory job.

and I stopped writing.

You know, writing is hard to do. It's painful.
Not as painful as not writing, but still.....

I tried to be boring for a few years.
The other boring people said I didn't fit in well.

Well.

So.
I wrote teeny tiny things for a tiny teeny neighborhood paper.
About how to fix things.
(That's how Eva knows me.
She was my editor. Poor thing.)

And we,
L and I,
got bored with living under gigantic Oklahoma skies.
(and I had ridden
every inch of chip and seal highway
for three states around)

So we moved to New York City.
Where I manage a store.
And she creates sportswear a few blocks away.
We eat dinner out nearly every night.

and hope the kids call us.


I am writing this fabulous story now
about this guy who had 2,784 lives.
My editor keeps saying
"Pick one for christ'ssakes!!"
but I can't
they are all my favorite lives.
So far.

Being Joe's editor was one of the all-time best volunteer things I ever did. Now he lives in the Big City and has a different editor, I take it. Well, I am jealous. Somebody else is getting to read all his wonderful stuff now instead of me. Hmph. I hope you're not PAYING this person, Joe, because I would gladly edit your stuff for free.

Again.

Anytime.

Redheads can be men's undoing
what with all that coloured cooing,
some I'm sure are indeed single,
get out more, and start to mingle!

I didn't knew Halloween inspired the world of Poetry!

We do this only when we celebrate St. Nicolaas (maybe you heard from him before,....it's a white old man on a white horse and he has black 'clowns' working for him!)

And they told ME Slavery is finished :wink:
