Am I the only one….. who gets wistful from time to time?

©By: Richard L. King
From the book Memories & Time

a poet, a prophet, a pauper with a pen?
someday we may discover,,, can’t be sure just when.

words flow like magic, leading him home,
destination a mystery,,, traveling alone.

first, from loneliness, ink starts to flow,
describing the journey,,, to where we don’t know.

mind filled with worry, pockets nearly bare,
hoping he’ll recognize,,, when finally he’s there.

fun times, sad times, times filled with pain,
each time his pen gets busy again.

mission accomplished? not yet it seems,
one day maybe,,, for now he still dreams…..

It seems woefully clear that his glass

AUTOMOTIVE HINTS – Now that most of us no longer smoke here’s a tip on how to Freshen your car with a little fragrance. Put potpourri in your car’s ashtray. The heat from the car activates the scent. BUT… If you are still a smoker, you might want to forget this tip because while the heat of the car releases the scent, the heat from the ashes or cigarettes could possibly ignite the dry potpourri.
