Weddings and fireworks have nothing to do with each other; wait, did I say nothing? Both fade to white–the big emotional culmination of plans and hopes and the climax of commitment–but they fade to white, to pictures and memories but not so much rill. After that, the marriage depends on what you put into it–every day, like the compost.

Weddings and fireworks: They are the same actually. Weddings are emotional fireworks, for the reasons stated above. In the aftermath, you try to build some sort of life. The letdown, if there is one, reflects your particular brand of immaturity and ill preparation. There is nothing wrong with white. It’s what we try to fill it in with that’s wrong. What if we let it be beyond the pale–to just shimmer there, not as memory, but to be involved in the explosion that is love, that is the apex of that wedding: That could be the life–or points along it–like fireworks for weddings, suspended and found, something to be lived, not frozen in the “what was” or even the what-could-have-been department.

Rain Dances Work

22 Jul

It was a sweltering day in Texas. The thermometer read 103 degrees. There hadn’t been rain in months. A few local companies got together, and planned a rain dance festival to try to get the local townspeople together. So many people had their air conditioning Rochdale going that the town had a power outage, and the people of the town were hot and angry. The companies were hoping a rain dance festival might calm them down. The ice cream parlor volunteered to give out free ice cream because it was going to melt with no power anyways. Word spread quickly, and soon people gathered and the rain dance began. It was only supposed to be a distraction, to calm the tempers of the town, but an amazing unexpected thing happened though. It began pouring rain. The crowd cheered and danced even more. Maybe, rain dances really do work?

There is nothing like a nice fall day to realize that everything is not as you would have wished. She looked up the word sadness in the dictionary, and along the way she came across the word hasten and the phrase recycled glass media. Based on the definition of sadness in the dictionary she was not sad, so much as restless. She decides to go for a walk. It was a cool and sunny day, and she noticed the squirrel that ran across the sidewalk to the tall tree to climb it. She passed a fast food place, and the delicious smell of french fries and onion rings had her mouth watering. She walked two more blocks and passed an empty park. She noticed the swings moved with the wind and the grass in the park needed cutting. After continuing her walk for another thirty minutes, she walked back home feeling relaxed and happy.

Key Word Search

23 May

Work was slow so I decided to start my own business. I found a wholesale store that sold purses and wallets at a discount price. I made my purchase, build a website, but still I was not getting any business. The problem was nobody was able to find my site. This is when I decided I needed a SEO service.

I was able to find a cheap seo service that was able to link my business to some key words. They were also able to improve my rating on search engines. Since this time my business has taken off. Customers for all over the world now shop at my store. Business has picked up now that my store was able to be found. I was able to quit my day job and now work at home running my own store full time.

My mother in law is quite the lady(and I do use the term lady loosely), ever since my wife and I have been married she seems to pick at every decision I make. I have tried countless times to maintain a good relationship with her, but it seemed like she was just determined to hate me. Finally one day, I asked my wife,”Honey what does your mother love more than anything”? She quickly named off an entire list of things that her mother enjoyed until finally she mentioned that she loved flowers.

Her mother had been a Harrogate florist for over twenty years and had never been given roses! So I decided that I would give her some roses Not just one, but twenty of the finest Hybrid Tea roses I could find. Ever since she received these flowers she has been extremely kind to me offering food every time we go to her house.

Three days ago I was talking to a friend of mine. She told me that her husband was going to take some new college courses. I did not know he was going to go back to school and was curious. She said he was going to go to the local community college to take courses in becoming an ecommerce web design builder. I found it a little odd that someone his age would want to go back to school. Later after thinking more on it, I realized that it was a glorious thing for him to decide to go back to school. I am now thinking of going back myself and taking a few Art classes. I love to use water colors and would really like to brush up on my painting. He has inspired me to better educate myself and I’m sure I will enjoy the classes. I will have to thank my friend the next time I see her.

Time together

28 Apr

Eight-year-old Tommy yelled “Bang, bang.” at the T.V. as he shot another bad guy in his videogame.
“Tommy,” Tommy glanced up when he heard his mother’s voice, “Your Dad asked if you could help him put up the new Manchester shutters.”
“Yeah, sure, just let me save the galaxy first,” Tommy’s gaze went back to his game.
“I think the galaxy can wait for you to save it,” his mom bent down and took the controller from her son’s hands, and added, “Get out there mister.”
Tommy pulled himself from the floor and marched toward the door.
“Hey, Dad. You still need me?” He yelled out the screen window of the door.
“Yep, I still do,” Tommy’s father called back.
“Well, can you just wait ten minutes?”
“This has to be done now,” his dad answered him with a smile.
Pulling the door open, Tommy angrily marched out, letting it slam shut behind him.
“Would you hold the bolts?” Tommy held out his hand as his father handed him two bolts. His father quietly sent a bolt into the desired place. “Did you know I use to help my dad with things like this?” Tommy’s father asked his son, and then went on to answer his own question. “Yep, I sure did.”
After a few minutes of talking, Tommy actually decided this might be more fun than his video games.
Tommy is now nineteen-years-old and he works full-time in carpentry. He has dreams of starting his own company someday. This all started eleven years ago as a little boy helped his father work around their home.
