Sunrise in Maryland

A Saturday sunrise in eastern Maryland was appreciated as a family of geese were nearby on the ground.

Ocean City, Maryland and, Salisbury, Maryland are moderatly nice locations except,
I am working very hard offloading product from a frozen trailer with a handcart.
Twenty Fourteen has been a reasonable step up, I do what I am capable of with MPK Production.
I hate my limited ability to play the guitar, as a result of my output, I tend to wander back and fourth as I try to produce slightly different sound.
Sometimes and, especially in the case of The Voorholes, I will just play anything and move with it.
It generally works because there will be some unfamiliar passages that can be useful in originality.

‘A Thought I Just Had (Of You)’
The Voorholes

I'm one of those people that can simply walk into a room and upset people.
It's not quite a epitaph but, it mimics the complete disregard of feelings of others.
In reality, 
I often (when all is well) experience a overwhelming enthusiasm toward a few others and life overall.
I went to a funeral of a person that moved through life consistently 
and did make a difference onto others.

I have noticed that funerals are not what they used to be, 
apparently, no one wants to be bothered with details such as someone passing on.
Since I had much feeling in me about the deceased, 
I wanted to be there.
I brought my parents with me and to my surprise, 
we were presented with a procession flag so, 
we went to the cemetery to observe the burial.
Truly a suitable send off for a person that was cared for.

Anyhow, I wrote this song about the daughter of the deceased, 
the woman that I could upset simply by walking into a room.

Later in the afternoon, 
I walked up here just to burn off lunch and prove to myself that life does continue.
I dislike where I live and want to move elsewhere; it's impossible not to feel this way due to the distance and area that I regularly walk in.

The time continuum is unique when combined with emotion.

The working layover in Salisbury, MD.

‘A Refuge Without a Word’

Strong black coffee with cream just plain feels good.

The Call

Later into the evening, 
it is cooling down enough to write about anything over here.
It is very good to be 'back in the truck'; there is no shortage of work.
When I am home, 
I try to get outside and walk as far as I can because more than half of my life has passed;
I thought it would be a good idea to hold on to something.

I have to go to a funeral on Monday.
The nephew never had the call, 
he only wanted the house and a wall to shield his shame.
Now the nephew is the pastor of the church with great prejudice.
When his wife prays in front of all others, 
she always asks God why he would allow 
whatever situation she is in opposition to.
Sometimes..............I think I should answer them.

 ‘Prelude to A New Jersey Summer’
The Voorholes

There was a woman that I bravely wrote to and confided that I wanted to marry her.
Her reply was neither sweet nor near.
Lately, when I'm over the hill, 
I wonder why I have not seen my thoughts before.
My steps do not bounce from bewilderment, 
they simply carry me through another empty tournament.

The Same Theme

A little more time on the road.
A area that I am familiar with as I rest between the deliveries.
Unfortunately, my time at home was spent in bed with a cold that produced a aching body and plenty of congestion.
I am now resting in a hotel room and, I must soon return to the truck.

The Old Homestead

Here I am.
I'm here in North Eastern Virginia.
Too much fried rice and a endless procession of free, six ounce cups of coffee.

‘And the Tongue of that in which is Carnivorous Breaths Down On Me’

One foot in front of another as I embark on a dining adventure.

The View

Overall, it's not too bad.
I need to watch what I eat a bit better.
I will bring more food with me as compared to eating out.

The choices.
