S: Filling Life with Simple Pleasures

FC: A watch with no time... it is your time to fill life with simple pleasures

1: What made you happy today?

2: Stirling Brook I might be too small for cowboy boots, Or a belt with a silver buckle. But I fill the heart of my big sis Trish, Along with a very special couple. I surprised everyone with the quick arrival of me When I appeared Thursday, July 31st at 8:43 (AM). I am just a wee small mite at 3 lbs,11. But I'm a bundle of joy sent straight from heaven. Stirling Brook is my name, And it's to the home of Trishia, Barbara and Guy that I came. | 1980

3: GrammaThelma & Grampa | May 1981 | 1981 | May 1981

4: 2nd Birthday with Kermit the Frog in attendance. OSNS filled the days; the best part of each day was spent with Trishia. The holidays were always "cousin time"... here we were creating individual gingerbread houses.

5: Childhood Days

6: My Mom's Favorite Memory of Me When Stirling was about 4 years old he received his first walker from O.S.N.S., this walker encircled him and gave him support, so he was everywhere! The sound of the wheels rolling across the floor and his squeals of joy as he raced about are a very special music to my ears. Sometimes he would chase after our old cat, Miss Kitty. Other times he'd be following Trishia, his big sister, about; but this one particular day he was playing cowboys. He had on an old cowboy hat, his gun holster with belt, and his favorite silver cap gun was waving wildly in his hand. The house was full of his noise, the wheels rolling, his squeals and laughter, and the BANGING of the caps as the trigger snapped close. That is a very special memory to me and I can conjure up the action and noise as I recall it.

8: Warm light in a window, My collar fends the cold, Here I shiver out in the snow, "Get out! Leave here!" is the cheer I am told. Now I turn an icy white, No one looks for me. So I bid forgiveness to the night, And hope tomorrow I'll see. No one cares for what I've see, Stories I can tell, No one knows just where I've been' On this earthly hell. I've confiscated drugs, Wished upon a star, Dispelled the wish of thugs, But none of it got me very far.. I bathe in a street light, Sleep within a box, Find and eat what I might, And take the looks of shock. Have you ever felt a subway? Have you ever been alone? Have you ever got on a bus not able to pay? I have... and no one looks for me. | No One Looks for Me | Hello... Is anyone there, Hello, Does anyone care? Here I live on 6th and St. Peter, Will he come to me ever? I have been played by a cheater, Never will I get a fair hand - never. | written May 94 Grade 8

9: Wandering trance... cool in my head breathing rhythm muffled echoes speaking word trance plays with awareness tying in and out of consciousness orchestrated with strings of thought beneath world drapes as seconds extend pulse of an eye slowing thump... thump... thump... black milling silence with mumbles relevance is fantasy substance only to thought that reaches it as thunder of dreams roars part my heart.. | Candle Fire erodes the form, light for the late night scholar, A breath blows to black.
