I hate being jarred awake from a dream that is so real…you were just here. I could touch you, smell you, see your smile…you were real, it was real, not this-this can’t be real.
And then I woke…even then I carried the sadness around, just over my shoulder all day. Like something you were going to say, but forgot…I preferred the dream, I wish to sleep…
If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

I think it is perfect that Veterans Day falls on 11-11-11. I am thankful for all who have served, and those are currently sacrificing so that we can all live peacefully. It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
I miss my two favorite vets…they made such an impact on my life-Arthur Pellegrene & Stanley Kasper…I love you both ❤

Make SURE you thank the service people around you today of all days!
