It's Winter Again

The first real snow fall happened a few days ago. Not a lot is going on. I've had my hours at work chopped quite a bit since they hired some new people. I am thinking if looking for another one. It would be nice to go to school & learn a new trade or whatever. I was going to write a poem, but have no real inspiration right now. Anyhow that's all for now.

Spinach Salad

Twisting ever so slowly
Tying me up completely
The winds of time & change
Still continue to floor me

Where the hell am I going?
Where the hell am I doing?

Thoughts come into fruition
Or is it intuition
It all looks so fine
& has become my nutrition

& then....

Some kinda' change
A new brand of strange

Yeah that's it
Spinach salad
The big boobed waitress
A gathering of friends
Each one captaining their own ship
Welcome to the fleet
Of spoken word & beat
& am I'm gonna' end this right here

Okay so I didn't
Ha ha

Eyes Closed

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know which way the wind is blowing
I have my eyes closed
I have my eyes closed

You were there
In yesteryear
A book of poems
A jug of beer

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know which way the wind is blowing
I have my eyes closed
I have my eyes closed

Give me a guitar
Give me an open road
Let's restart the fire
I've grown so cold

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know which way the wind is blowing
I have my eyes closed
I have my eyes closed

I have to wake up
You have to wake up
We all have to wake up
We all have to wake up

Or is it too late?
Is it too late?
Is it too late?
Is it too late?

20 Years Ago

Time sure flies. I stop & look back on these last 20 years & where it has taken me & all I can say is I never seen this coming. It sure is strange to say the least, where I'll be in 20 more years is just as unknown. It's funny how it all came about. Oh well might as well saddle up & see what's over the next horizon.

Feeling A LIttle Alien

Sometimes I feel a little bit alien. Today I decided to see what I might look like if I were alien. Ask me if I believe in aliens I might say yes or no. Who knows they might already be amongst us. When you look at the leaps & bounds we have made in science & technology it kinda' makes you wonder if Roswell & Area 51 have something to do with it.

Feed Me

This little critter lives in Waterton Park. I tried to get a better shot but he was somewhat camera shy. The hand you see is of some other tourist not mine. I fed the little guy myself since he was so cute but like I said trying to feed him & capture a pic was not gonna' happen. As far as I know he knows some English & probably bits & pieces of other languages as well. I'd probably goes as far as to say he probably is smarter than a lot of us.

Summer's Fading Away

Summer's slowly fading away
I feel like I'm turning old & gray
Don't have much to say
Summer's slowly fading away

Time Moves On

Slipping down the tunnel of obscurity
Watching vehicles roll by
I want to hit the road
Stormclouds overhead hint at rain
The cold winds embrace me
I wish it were an old friend
Another year will pass
Where will the future take me?


Another day passes
Another door opens
Another door closes

Time keeps going faster & faster
Spinning & spinning out of control

The news keeps on blaring
Natural disasters

I surf the net
Look for pictures of animals
It takes me back to a time
When things were simpler

Slowly Climbing Back Up

Been down in the gutter
Way down low
No need for oxygen
Because I've found helium
& my voice cries out like a mouse
Sun bathed
Cap to tight
My brain hurts
When I fart
Will shit fly out?
Ha, ha
Yes I can see it now
You wiping yourself off
Sorry about that
Too much hot sauce
I'm slowly climbing up
I'm slowly crawling out
Flip me over easy
My belly could use some sun
Winter's frost still coats me
It's time to melt
Drift away
Blah, blah, blah
I can't take things too serious
Life's been that way
So I just sorta' don't give a damn
I will weather more storms
More BS
It's just life
Too bad Maid Marrion wasn't here
We could drive & drive for days
I know some lovely campgrounds
Do some fishing, hiking, biking
But no
That path has run it's course
There's still some salt burning
Communications shut down
Shut down like a satelite dish in a hurricane
Blown away or sideways or who knows
Nature is pretty wierd sometimes
People on the other hand
Never cease to amaze me
What will the magicain do next?
Pull a bunny from a hat?
Find a dove in someone's wig
Anyhow this poem ended a little while ago
I just babble on
For the sake of babbling

Untitled poem

You tore off my wings
You burned me with fire
You left me out in the rain
Again, & again, & again

Stop light red
Little crumbs of bread
I follow the path
To see where it will lead

Yes as an artist
You bleed & bleed
Winter turns to spring
Germinate some seed

Puttering along
Writing another song
Changing fate again
Where's my long lost friend

Standing here in the rain
I think of you
You were a break in the rythm

I'm still reeling
Sometimes I get acid re-flux
What a way to go
Silencing the orchestra

You were the violin
I was the timpani
I need some more wasabi
& a taste of your sushi

That will never be
Unless of course
You turn out to be
What I thought you were

My favourite bounty hunter
I walked into your trap
Then you let me go
Just to see where I would go

Is it reality
Is it science fiction
Who can say for sure
Maybe a little bit of both

I can't wait to see
What kinda film they'll make
I hope it turns out to be a comedy
I've seen too much tragedy

Hello Lethbridge

Well I am settling in, meeting a few, people & moving onward. Today I got an invite to join "Most Vocal" a group of poets. I used to belong to "Single Onion" in Calgary. Anyhow I have added some new material to my Soundclick page click the link below to go there. When I get time I will place a link in the link section.

Anyhow check them out

Wednesday, April 04, 2007


I have arrived in Lethbridge. It's small compared to Calgary, not much going on in the arts scene, but there is one. I am restless, want to travel, go to work, get back in shape, get a new webiste, etc, etc.. It feels like time has slowed down & yet it hasn't. This time last year I was in Winnipeg, then moved to Cowtown & worked for an old friend for a bit, then wound up in the pysche ward in Lethbridge due too some outlandish set of circumstances at the US border in Coutts, Montana.

Now after being homeless, then put into a treatment centre for the last 8 months life begins again. I can't say what's down the road. The place where I am staying seemed ideal at first but now it doesn't. I am living in a grouphome with other folks who have various illnesses or whatever. They are mellow, so am I, but Iam still bitter.

If anything the US boarder guards & Homeland security need to train their personel better so they don't jump to conclusions, etc., etc.. I have met many strange folks in my life but those guys took the cake. Anyhow during the ordeal there was almost a shoot out between the US & Canada Customs guys & gals with me in the middle in handcuffs.

Topping off the whole thing I hammed it up for the camera once in Canadian custody. I did a little dancing, acting, etc.. I even tossed in the line Princess Leia said in Star Wars. "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!" My Obi-Wan never came instead I was handed over to a fat red haired RCMP officer. His belly was twice the girth of mine, dude must've kept the local doughnut shops busy. THen on the ride with him hammed it up some more. I just really didn't care at that moment what happened. If you were familiar of my old website it had a pro US slant to it & mocked Canada, communism, etc.. Anyhow once you go too far there's no way back. It was at time like the Bourne Identity. Anyways for me it's water under the bridge.

I would like to thank the people in ICE for giving me back my laptop after looking at it. It proved to them I was a good guy & not what the crazed border guards thought I was on both sides. Anyhow I am through the venting part & hold no grudges if anything they should take the time to listen to people, be up too speed with the internet, & various other things. Anyhow I am still stuck in Canada, have been labelled schizophrenic, robbed of 8 months of my life, put on persciption drugs, & am supposed to be feeling all lovey dovey about it all. I personally think it's just outrageous, but in a way sorta' interesting. Once again I have to start from scratch. Had I been given asylum, or refugee status in the US who knows where I'd be or what I'd be doing. I had been dabbling with remote viewing & scored a number of hits on things I seen & were validated in the news. Now with the perscription drugs, that skill has declined. So what does that mean, I have no idea. I guess Canada was mad I was helping the US.

So here I sit in Lethbridge which to me is like the gulag of boredom, trying to get rolling again. If Canada ever wants me to help them I'd have to ask them what kinda' glue are they on. For the US, UK or any member of the coalition I'd bend over backwards. For now it's one boring day at a time, mabe I'll use it to catch up on reading, maybe go back to school or who knows. Some times I get these wierd heart palpatations, this never happened before, I get vertigo sometimes, maybe Canada wants me to die slowly, first taking my mind, then my body, but never my soul. My hats off to all the men & women in uniform overseas. Sorry I couldn't be there standing beside you, I got railroaded into the strange situation I am now in. My fantasy would be for some Blackhawk helicopters to cross the border scoop me up & take me to the states where I would dedicate my life to fighting terrorism, etc., in ways that are unconventional. Of course that will never happen, but it's a kooky dream. I'd settle for someone scooping my up in a car then driven across the border, that seems more realistic. Until then I guess I will plod along writing down kooky ideas, etc.. My life has changed for the better though, I have no idea why. I guess just the way things are is alright kinda' sorta'. I am alive for another chapter of what has been a colorful life. Peace in the chaos!

Lethbridge here I come

On April Fool's day I will be moving to Lethbridge. Yeah sounds like a joke but it ain't. What awaits in the little windy city remains a mystery. Hopefully there is some kinda arts scene, I know there are poets & musicians there, plus local theatre, & other things. Anyways gotta' roll.

Cooking Up Beats

Since I am going nowhere fast, I have time to cook up some new beats on my laptop. Other than that it's winter still, there's a chinook that is supposed to be blowing in and taking us from below freezing to plus 16 this weekend. I can't wait to get rolling with my life again.

WInter Blues

It's warm out, but dang I wish it were summer. Snow, snow, and more snow. Then a chinook melts it, then it snows again making it all icy.

To keep me sane I make music on my laptop with Magix Music Maker 11 Deluxe. I have exhausted my ideas so to come up with something fresh is just not happening. Dance, Trance, Electro, etc. is kinda hard since I grew up listening to country & metal. Oh well.

Winter Blues

Snow, snow. & more snow. It was brown & warm for awhile here. God bless global warming. Anyhow not much is new. I am in a care centre for the mentally handi capped, lol. I never seen this coming, but here it is. When will I get out? Who knows, all I know is I want to get on with my life. I have been in hospitals & such since the end of July. The wierdest part of it all is that I had a ticket that was unpaid, but when I went to go pay it so I wouldn't show up as having a warrant out for my arrest, I discovered it was gone. I wonder who paid for it. I just wonder now when the next time I go to the US will there be any problems. Last time I went they returned me to Canada. Yeah had I been able to cross who knows where I would be now or what I would be doing. A farmer asked me if I wanted to help him bring in his crop of wheat. Yes, work without a green card, I guess that would've made me an illegal alien. Anyhow my favourite memory of the US is when I got to join the American Red Cross & got sent to Falls Church, Virginia, to man the phones during the hurrican disater last year. What folks heard on the news was nothing compared to some of the calls I got. There were a few heart breakers, & there was folks trying to scam the sytem, etc, etc.

Still Creating Things

Well ever since my life has turned upside down I have had little inspiration, but recently I bougt some more music samples & a new program & have created 2 new pieces of music. They are titled Close Your Eyes, & Fading Away. Hopefully I will get rolling soon I have been idle too long.
