About the Author
Default Group
Location:Texas, USA Naturalized US Citizen of Irish extract -   Fixed Wing and Helo trucker.Interests: "The Absurdity of Man". I am a proud supporter of Blarney, Nonsense, and Hooey. I enjoy being a chopper jockey, and trying to figure the world, people and belief systems out. I'm just not very good at it, so it keeps me real busy. I scribble, blog, run this website, mess with rental houses, ride motorbikes, and read as much as I can. I went solo 44 years ago, and I like to say I'm gonna get me a real job one day. When I grow up. ("but not just yet, Lord, not just yet") For my aviation scribbles see enjoy! I wish you Peace in your Life. May you always walk with the sun on your face, and a breeze ruffling your hair. And may you cherish a quiet wonder for our awesome Universe. Life isn't always good. But it is always fascinating. Never quit.

In Saturn's Patient Shadow

In Saturn's patient shadow
Shielded from the Sun's glare
I lingered for a while
Reflecting on the sunlit byways
As yet, untraveled
Where Man, one day
May gingerly,
Set foot.
Soaking in the Rings
And saturated in immensity
I'm delighted to see
And hear, and sense
The Great Cosmic Kindness
A latent, hidden Force
Uplifting and yet sobering
That calls us tiny souls
To ponder, in amazement
The Greatest Gift ever conceived.
The Universe. Abundant.

I hope my simple, roaming mind
Reaching out, like a youngster
Madly excited
Skipping along
Will never cease

To wonder.

We little humans, hurtling through the Universe on our tiny, pale blue dot, will find few answers to Life's great mysteries. But we should at least find many of the questions. To write is to ask. To seek. To grope. With humility, and humor. Peace.
