    Flipping past old memories, I saw him; young and handsome
    standing with his hand artfully slipped into his pocket,
    strong, self-confident and assured.
    He had that self-satisfied look bordering on arrogance,
    but it was only determined confidence and knowledge.

    The determination; jaw set, solid as tempered steel,
    impressed, my admiring eyes watched wondering
    where was Dorian Gray these days, and why he had
    disappeared before the painting dried.

    As the must of old pages flipped past my nose,
    I was taken by all the images my eyes didn't see,
    the ones where everything is so clear and honest,
    and I wondered, whatever happened to me?

    Thanx!

    I thank you very much. It is often good to go back and remember who we are and remember where we are going.

    I saw him

    and he and I looked very much the same--we cannot run from time--but it always seems to be worth the effort--Ra

    It is I

    It is I who appreciate that anyone takes the time to read me--my best part of the day is reading everything everyone posts--I usually comment, but not a day goespast when I at least don't read--I try to comment just to let folks know they are being read--it's only fair because I get many of my ideras from the folks right here on this page--Amun-Ra
