I went for walk a couple days ago and spent a little time in the basketball court, the air was brisk, the sun beaming down, just the perfect conditions for a pickup game.  Both the basketball court and tennis court  were free at the time, a sight like that in my youth would be like […]

Broken Wall of Color

(Old poem I wrote while staring across from my office window in 2006 at of a graffiti-filled wall) By: Ash Douglas Broken wall of color, how the years have left you behind. I see your every crack, I see your every line. Someone has painted you a picture, Oh how very humble. Now you sit […]

Most people that I know don’t seem to be able to function without the help of caffeine.  I barely manage to get a good morning out of  most until they have received their first hit.  Coffee is definitely a “start the day” type of drink, it certainly does it’s job waking us up,  just the […]

That old rocking chair

A whistle from another room, a few words of a song, I would hear your voice and come running along. I jump into your lap, frighten you with cheer, You would simply caress my back and say “oh dear”. “Where are you going?” you would always ask, “Don’t know my father I just have time […]

Board much??

I did something last night that I haven’t done in quite some time and that was play a board game, I didn’t need batteries, there were no wires, and I certainly didn’t need to be in WiFi range, just some old school board gaming fun.  Gaming consoles, computers, and hand-held devices usually take precedent over […]
