Hope and Practice

With diet and exercise, I lowered my LDL cholesterol by 20% and raised my HDL by 43%. I've been a vegetarian since I was little, but I always ate too much cheese. In the past year, I've taken in less salt and cheese and ate more fruits, veggies and nuts. I'm still addicted to cheese and I blame you, Home Pizza! I'll still feed my long standing addiction but I won't eat quite as much of your wonderfully tasty-greasy product when I'm in town.

Gardening Tips

In each unspoken sound and every unwritten word
the preponderance of unreckoned silence is deafening
I may not see the shadows that encumber your heart
(during your everyday life)
or a grow a garden tomato from one of your vines
yet the same sun that brings such consternation,
equally brings warmth, desire, joy and hope.

Dear Red, If you're reading this, you've gotten out. And if you've come this far, maybe you're willing to come a little further. You remember the name of the town, don't you? I could use a good man to help me get my project on wheels. I'll keep an eye out for you and the chessboard ready. Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things and no good thing ever dies. I will be hoping that this letter finds you, and finds you well. Your friend, Andy.
