“BBQ Chicken, Reuben casserole, pork in a chili Verde sauce, spinach casserole, cauliflower with cheese sauce, Spanakopita Appetizers, bacon ranch dip with crackers, and last but not least a banana cinnamon trifle. I know it sounds like a lot but, you can’t make any of these dishes for yourself and enjoy them. They all require friends.”

******************** Poems for September 2019 **************

My successful life I'm still working on and never did care about how others measured me... and my satisfied life will probably never be satisfied; I'm forever searching, endlessly discovering, and always questioning.  

Sometimes we can love too much and are taken for granted
Sometimes we are loved too much and take this for granted
Sometimes we live on the edge
Sometimes we fall off
Sometimes we laugh with friends
Sometimes we cry alone
Sometimes we triumph
Sometimes we fail
Sometimes we move on 
Sometime there will be no more sometimes 
~RD

I might be wise but indifferent 
I have pain from my diligence 
I love by my envy 
I hate by my sorrows
I cry for my loneliness 
I frown at my laziness
I smile for my kindness
I shout at my stupidity
I yawn at my emptiness
I fear for my jealousy 
I laugh at my incompetence
Deranged or inspired
Intrepid or loathsome
I am amused 
~RD


In this world of ours, it's difficult to find the truth...
In this world of ours, the truth may not be what it seems...
In this world of ours, it's hard to hear the voice of truth among the deafening roar of falsehoods...
In this world of ours...
It's best not to lie...  
Because that's the only truth you'll really get to know.
~RD
