California devistated

misc thoughts

Hell I’m devastated.  I drove my family ( wife and 2 sons) to the store where we purchased underwear and socks and some other misc. items.  on the way home we tried to detour through to a known burned neighborhood.  i have to tell you it brought tears to my eyes.  The realization of myself just purchasing “larger” underwear and whiter socks and seeing someoneís HOME (every one of their memories; childrenís laughs, tears, first dates, mementos, prized awards for poetry or something else personal, kiddy pictures on the fridge, the ONE report card that was terrific!) - oh my GOD!!!!  it make me so sick of myself.  i feel as though how dear i even purchase something so extravagant as clean underwear when so many brothers and neighbors are without....... compute that!

What complicated webs we weave of social interaction and relationship.  what we hold precious can not be bought, made, or manufactured; it can however be created!

the stereo, big screen, surround sound, tools, video games, and freezer full of food will be replaced by insurance- eventually.  the picture, the precious one on the ‘fridge, that sally made for mommy, just before she died, of complications from chemo therapy the year before this last holiday (12-25-2002)...... won’t be replaced by the insurance company.  i will try to continue to update this sight with meaningful pics.  damn y’all, this is bad!  What else do you say? hyped-up blown out Hollywood phrases and excusing-politically correct “I’m Sorry’s”?  Old school less meaningful ditties and songs? What do you say?  WHAT THE badword DO YOU SAY????!!
How do you describe the dissolution of so many souls, homes, and dreams in any amount of characters?  how do you express the tears they choke on?
