I know I set up a link to this web site before but I thought I would post it again. I have been spending a lot of time writing poetry and less time writing prose and so I have been posting at the Poetry Showcase. Check it out!
As far as the goings on in my life? I'm kinda stuck in limbo due to a paper work malfunction. I can't go into too much detail but people have been sowing seeds in my head that I may be stuck in this temporary shore duty for some time (maybe even a year!). While the day to day at the temporary job (which includes setting up ceremonies, handling lines for ships that are pulling into port and sweeping parking lots) isn't bad I just hate being stuck somewhere that I don't know how long I will be. I want to settle in and not go to work everyday wondering if things are going to drastically change at a moments notice.
Sunday is my birthday. I will be turning 35. Old enough to know better but still too young... well you know the rest. I wonder what my wife is going to do for my birthday. I think that I will keep my mouth shut and see if she even remembers. I could be spending my 35th birthday in my home office surfing the net and writing. (Then again that doesn't sound too bad, really.) We will see.
My reading has gotten cluttered since I have been home. I am in the middle of 5 books. No wonder it takes so long to get to the end. I will admit I am not a speed reader and even if I was blessed with such skill I wouldn't want to use it. I like to savor every word, reread paragraphs and entire chapters (actually thats due to my inability to concentrate which I have mentioned before in a previous post).
Shoots. More den tree paragraphs! I da kine. Aloha from da islands, cuz! (a little bit of pidgin for you)
