How are we feeling today? Have we taken our meds? Is it better now?.....or now?

Where have you gone, Jim Morrison?

I'm watching VH1Classic (I know, most of you can stop reading now) -- a film of the Doors late in their time together. Jim Morrison's "fat" phase. Right before he offed himself with heroin. Coincidence?

I read Morrison's poetry, but could never get into it. Maybe I was too young, or maybe his poetry was tainted with his addictions. Don't get me wrong, I'm no drug prude; but, honestly, drugs/alcohol (same thing) really don't enhance one's creative spirit. Dylan Thomas, Heath Ledger, F Scott Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe.

How do you feel?

Best Toy

Courtesy Breyer, Inc.

What was your favorite toy as a kid?

I loved horses, but we couldn't have a horse. I always asked for a horse, and sometimes received a plastic horse. They weren't always Breyer; they were whatever, and I loved them all. Thoroughbreds, Quarterhorses, Trigger (Roy Roger's horse - only Olds will know RR & Trigger), Appaloosas, Palominos - didn't matter. Loved 'em all. I kept a notebook with their names.

Unfortunately, most of the horses lost a leg or two as I played with them. Thank God I didn't have to put them down. I still have one horse with only 1 leg intact. My favorite.

We had lots of adventures. Anyone who can hook me up with horse models, I will be in your debt.

What was your toy of choice?

In Memorium

A day to give thanks. Thanks that we survived 9/11, and grew to embrace the tragedy as part of our nation and part of our collective conscious.

Thanks that the "training excercise" reported today in Washington did not result in harm to our President. At the time of this post, there is still confusion as to what, exactly, occurred on the Potomac with the Coast Guard.

God, please bring peace to us, our families, our neighbors, our nation, our President and our universe. Please bring Your serenity to those battling illness, loneliness, depression and their demons.

Thank you for Your infinite love and care.

Please share your thoughts.
