Remember 16?

April 30th, 2005 (05:31 am)
current song: 25 Minutes To Go--Johnny Cash

Wasn't it awful and wonderful???

I felt and understood more,
in those few months.......

Than I have in the near two decades since.

The energy.

The pain.

Everything was so VIVID.

I've been talking
a girl

who is 16.

I adore her.

I have a theory.....
about why time seems to pass
so much more quickly
after a time.

We think we KNOW stuff.
Our eyes glance over objects
we would have examined.

We think we KNOW stuff.

We aren't taking the time
to look.........
Eyes pass quickly over understood

We understand how things work...
and YEARS pass like weeks.

How long did it take you to get out

Those four years.


We can smell them.

Remember details.
Hold things in our belly.

I went to three High Schools
in three Countries.

Went to my "REUNION" in Dallas Texas.
IN 1998.

The one from Germany?


The Hotel caught fire....
My first love drove me there.

The fire was put out.

And my First Love and I....
had People waiting at home for us.

We slept--in the same bed.

WE slept.

Many stories.


Do you remember 16?

I remember 16.
I wrote it down.

Even as deep as 17............
I remember.

I remember too. You 16, at Cub Scout day camp, like some forest creature. I loved you so much then, I love you still.
