"Dream as though you'll live forever, live as though you'll die today."
~James Dean (1931-1955), American Motion Picture Actor, symbol of rebellion


Bright, vivid, rolling green grass

Stretched across miles and miles of fields.

Glittered with sparkling droplets of dew

Capturing the morning sunlight like a camera capturing a memory.


Old, wooden, picket fences

They once kept the cows in the pasture;

Now they are useless

Prickling the countryside like paint dripping off a painting.


Dull, stone, towering ancient castles

The royalty is long gone

Yet the presence of a king remains

Like an archaic artifact uncovered from the dirt

See Good in the Universe and you will feel the Universe is Good. Do Good To the Universe and you will feel you are Good. We are all human and that is reason enough to care.

All I can think now when seeing ur profile is, 'If I was James Dean, you could be my Audrey, breakfast at Tiffany's for 2, so throw me away, cuz if I were a boomerang...........'
