as i laze about on this hazy sunday morn , another day older, a little more worn, i'm thinking about families and why they do last, with each new addition brings something from the past and the stories that follow and weave throughout, that is what life is all about.......enjoy your sunday, jack

do dreams appear in your head by accident? can we control a dream? do we even remember them.....clearly? if i had a certain dream when i was say.....six years old, would i have the same dream now, when i'm going to be fiftyfour? i know there has been alot of research on dreams and alot of misreading of dreams but what exactly are these little movies in your head when you are lights out? are they the last thoughts before you dim the lights? why do they occur and why do they show up when they do? just wondering, i suppose i''ll never really know. pleasant dreams....jack c.........anybody out there have any dreams they would like to share? the rain is falling outside my window, in tiny drops they flow, off into the street they roll, surely better than the snow

good afternoon, just watching the clouds fill a once sunny sky. it is a beautiful sunday afternoon and i thought i'd blog a little before enjoying some red wine and the newspaper on the front porch. yes, i'm one of those types who still like reading the printed word. i know the death knell has been sounded for the newspapers across the world, replaced by the world wide net but i''ll resist till they close the book on me. the two can coexist and they shall, that's all i have to say on that at the moment. went to the cape yesterday, great to be back at the shore in search of the stripped bass. they managed to elude me this time but i''ll be back, tis early. just watching the water flow, in and out, east and west, relentless in its precision is worth the trip. well, that's all folks, today, not forever......ciao, jack c

just sitting around on a rainy day in may. i started this blog a year ago january but i haven't written too much this year. blog world is really a great place to connect with folks all over the world and sometimes i just need a kick to get going. off to maine tomorrow to have brunch with mom and some other family members. york beach is the spot, a beautiful seaside town not too far up the coast. last weekend went to new hampshire to see a even more reclusive brother, michael. went kayaking, fishing and also swimming.......not by choice. getting out of kayak is an adventure sometimes. i see less and less of family and friends as i get older, and that's not right. should keep in touch more with the ones you yesterday was my good friend deedees birthday. i wrote on her blog but i should have called, maybe enjoyed a glass of wine with her and mac......soon, i will. back to my rainy day, jack c
