"A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it." - GK Chesterton     








When You Are There

Blustery days in catamarans

And rainy nights in tents

             are so much fun


Touching starfish in the crashing surf

And eating tacos

on the run


Soaking thunderstorms on mountain trails

And skinny dips in creeks

            make me laugh


Peddling bikes along the river

Snuggling in a sleeping bag

             or watching a giraffe


Itís all a thrill of happiness

when you are there 




"So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the lonely, the tired and worn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world."
Kathy Troccoli
