The Chasm


Journey into the fathom
For all sights unseen

Just past the never
Right before the careen

Every fantasy unfolds
All aburd some obscene

A taste of forever
An indescribable cuisine

The Change Purse


Watching as the wishing well

Gets filled with hopes and dreams

A penny for the mundane

A quarter for the extreme

Step up to the fountain

Payment in hand

Close your eyes and concentrate 

As hard as you can

Focus on your desire

Set your sights high

Drop it into the crystal waters

Where all the other wishes lie

Smile and walk away

Your craving has been set free

Along with all the longings of others

In the bank of believe

The Never Empty


Once upon a time there lived a couple named the good2begone’s. They were a happy couple who together raised 2 children.

Those 2 children got into relationships and had children of their own.

A total of 5 children….all under 5 (age and height)

And they all moved out over time, and started lives of their own and began to live out their dreams as independent young adults! Leaving the happy couple, know as their parents, to live out their dream of having an empty nest.

THE END…..

Until a month and a half later

When the end wasn’t the end after all…..

Well it was the end….

Of our empty nest dream.

Through the course of 3 days, our home went from 2 adults 2 dogs

To

4 adults and 1 infant

And

5 dogs…..

All under the age of 5 (age and height)

So for all you empty nesters out there….enjoy it while it lasts….

They may leave….but they multiply….and come back…

I do get to see this face every day, though

Happily ever after is still in progress

The Photo


Illumination of thought, gazing
Through a time worn pane

Picture perfect memories
Cracks in the glass within the frame

Smiles dont seem as genuine
Distance in the eyes

Captured embrace seemed so real
Is now infused with whys

The gaze wanders searchingly
For truth amongst the lies

Hoping for a reason to stay
Although knowing its goodbye

The Small Talk


Today, my boss asked me to go back to a job we did last week.

Apparently, a few of the deckboards were sticking up or did not get screwed down properly.

He said the owner would be there, just introduce yourself, tell him what you are there to do, do it and get out.

I said-

I’m pretty sure I can handle it….I’m not a complete idiot.

I went to the jobsite, saw the owner and said-

Hello, I’m good2begone…I hear you have a few screws loose.

Maybe…just maybe, I need some work on my presentation.

The Hands On


We got to unexpectedly spend time with the grandkids today.

It was so unexpected that we had nothing planned to do.

So what did we do when we had nothing to do?

We found something to do.

That’s what grandparents do.

I found a discarded table by the dumpster this morning. I figured I could make something out of it. A little beat up but whatever.

The boys wanted to paint.

So….

We decided to allow them to paint the table.

However they wanted with any and all colors that we had available.

We stripped them down to underwear….

Because…

Paint…DUH

And went to work-

They are 4 and 2 and not surprising like to get into paint.

Of course I got involved. I couldn’t let them have all the fun.

After we finished with the fifty eleven different colors that went on and all mixed together, we let it dry.

I then put some leg braces about a foot down from the top and painted those.

Then brought out the black to personalize our creation with our handprints.

The hands of the boys and Nona And Papi

Three some polyurethane to protect our artwork and brought it in to display in our main room.

Total cost….nothing

But priceless memories and something we can talk about for years to come.

Being a grandparent sure is…..

Grand.
