Remembering Skinny

Hard to believe that it's already been six months since Skinny moved on. I miss him every day as does his brother Fluff. Interestingly, Fluff has started to pick up some of Skinny's habits. He now hops up on the desk when I'm working and even tries chewing cords but his heart isn't in it. That's good because while I miss Skinny, I don't miss buying new Mac power cords every three months.

Work is good these days. I'm back at the place I was chased out of eight years ago. It's good to be there again and to not only prove I did belong but also do better job than I did the first time around.

On the personal front there isn't much new. I'm in love with a woman who is not available ... yet. I'm holding out hope and she says she wants to be with me. We'll see.

That's it for now. No great works of literature yet. Just a daily grind.

Another Fall

Another fall
And like the leaves soon will be
You're still gone
Think about picking up the phone
But there's no one home
Sometimes in my car
Stuck in traffic
I'll wonder how I got here
And hope you're still somewhere
Other than in my dreams
Which are fewer and fewer
Can't figure much out anymore
But the things I thought brought me light
Don't shine the way they used to
And I never planned for the dark
