06.30.22 Atari Memories, Frozen Perfectly in Place. (Poetry)

To honor Atari's amazing 50th Anniversary this week, I decided to write a new poem. This one's inspired by #Atari and a lifetime of fun, amusement & great times. These were all produced by Atari's amazing home gaming consoles, 8-bit computer lines & arcade games which are dotted throughout our lives and memories. This poem was written on 6/30/22, in honor of Atari's wonderful, glorious 50 years of entertainment this week. Thanks, Atari! And here's to the next 50!

05.30.22 There Will Be No Revolution Tonight. (Poetry)

Another week, another school shooting massacre. We've all become "used to it," and we never truly should. This poem came to me while walking my dogs on Memorial Day, 2022, in the aftermath of the tragedy in Uvalde, Texas, where 19 elementary school students were massacred by an 18-year-old, as well as 2 adults, while 19 cops stood nearby and did nothing for over an hour. Feel angry? You should. And you should make your voice count at the polls this year. Here's how I also deal with mine. Read on...

04.23.22 Under the Waves (Poetry)

On April 21, I visited my big Sis in Socal along with my TX family. We met up and took Mom (for her 69th birthday) to Catalina Island on the Catalina Flyer ship. The waves got pretty brutal going over on Friday, 4/22, and it made me re-evaluate my life & my new choices, and how I can now stand in my own power. This poem was written in 'real time' on 4/23/22 @ 9:49 AM PST

12.20.21 Reach for Fire (Poetry, 2015)

Is falling in love again worth the risk? Is putting your heart on the line worth it when you're in your 40's and have seen and lived every trick in the book? Sometimes, it's like rolling dice, or reaching for fire. This poem was written six years ago on Dec 21, 2015 and was contained in my poetry book, 'Look for the Silver Linings.' Enjoy! -BB
