Oldies but Goodies ~ Archives

Frank King
(2/26/47 – 5/17/03)

Another year passed and still he is gone.
Another year passed and his memory lives on.
Raise a glass. Cut the grass. Kiss a lass.
Or, just take a moment, and sit on your ass.
Look around and see all you can see.
Take it all in.
Days are long, but time is short.
Whatever will be, will be.

See what I see.

There was a delightfully thick roll of fog creeping along the marsh yesterday. Glad to be in the sunnyside of it though. Want your own Spiral Stairway to Heaven? Yeah, we got one #forsale @habitatgreaterportland Come and get it. #spiralstaircase #portlandme #habitatforhumanityrestore #remodel #hammockview Trying to just relax  and not think about all these leaves and acorns falling (again) about 5 months.
