Album of the Month

James Taylor's Greatest Hits, one of my all time favorites, it speaks for itself.

to an unknown person (on a train from koln)

he stood gazing through the glass
as you set separated staring back
your fingers reached up touched the pane
tip to tip caressing each other
together but alone, feeling only glass
the train moved, he sighed and walked away
his face softened with loving pain
he's going to miss you

A prayer

In the somber silence

I lit the candles

At first they hesitated

The flames flickered

And threatened to die

But slowly surely

They grew, they rose

Into strong steady flames

Unwilling to be extinguished

Waving to and fro

Combining with one another

Forming a bigger, stronger flame

Today, in the somber silence

I lit two candles

A prayer for each of you

Homeless Man attacks HUF Student

I was accosted by my brothers former roommate the other day. This would not be strange except I am in Italy, and I just bumped into him. Small world eh? I was going to write about it but Steven beat me to it.

An Almost Mugging

As you may or may not know, my youngest brother David is in Italy for the semester. A few days ago he was at the train station in Sienna, and he was headed to the W.C. before he got on the train. On his way to the W.C., someone grabbed him violently and started shaking him, at which point David freaked out because he thought the Gypsies were coming to kill him. Then, just when he was getting ready to fight for his life, his attacker started laughing hysterically and released him. When David turned around he was shocked to see the Ruskie. Apparently, the Ruskie's job is in a slow period so he's in Italy for a month. David is showing him around Florence today.
