Evangelist knocks
“Would you like to know the truth?’
Of course!  Don’t we all?

Winter waves unfurl
Pounding the rocky shoreline
With icy crystals

Wind whipping up waves
Amid Florida daydreams
Holmes Beach for Christmas?

Vacation Homes Search
Condo, Townhouse or Villa?
Who cares . . . if it’s warm!

Impatient to leave
We check the weather report
Smiling at the temps

As E.T.D. nears
We’re too excited to sleep
Wish we were there now

Finally . . . we’re off!
Smiles and soaring spirits
Greet the rising temps

St. Armand’s Circle
Posh people push pampered pups
Carols fill the air

South Beach Ferry glides
through inter-coastal waters
while passengers smile

Walking on Gulf sands
Frees my imagination
Let’s extend our stay!

Two thousand eight ends
With midnight fireworks, and
Dancing on the beach

Waves greet the New Year
Excitement swirls through the air
The future is next!

Square pegs and round holes
Art Shows and Eco Expos
Time reveals the truth

Aah . . . that’s better!

No Reservations November 6, 2011

Goofy-Riding-A-BikeNot long ago, we watched Anthony Bourdain‘s No Reservations as Tony enjoyed a white-knuckle taxi ride through Cairo, down crowded streets and roadways with no lane markings, surrounded by drivers who believe that turn signals are optional . . . even when maneuvering through tight passageways packed with pedestrians.

He survived.

Donald-Duck-DrivingThrill ride over, Tony wandered through street bazaars boasting colorful spices from the Orient ~ cardamom, saffron, marjoram and other fragrant seeds and berries.

And then Tony stopped for lunch.

What was on the menu?

Well . . . in Cairo, people do NOT feed pigeons.  Pigeons feed people.

Maybe that’s why Tony looked a bit like the cat who swallowed a canary.

No rules . . . just write!
