I saw some great sunsets while living in Tokyo, but I always remembered there is nothing quite like a Florida sunset.  I give Aya full credit for me being able to make this image.  She said the sky must be beautiful this late evening, and she was correct.

TAKEN [2008] review

The Thin Memories

Ever do these words echo in my mind…

“Teenage angst has paid off well, now I’m bored and old.”
I hear them all the time,
But mine own angst lingers,
Keeping me from getting old.

Purity of emotion peeks in adolescence.
Angers and wrongs incurred in such times
Are not yielded lightly.

Decades later, adult decisions are deferred, by design.
Ghosts wonder.
Physical pursuit ends, astral begins.

Selection of thin memories,
Engage the time meant to be bored and old.

Results are restless and stilted.

Memories that hurt are too valuable to give up.
