A Poem for Sunday: “Testament” by Carolyn M. Rodgers

in the august of your life
you come barefoot to me
the blisters of events
having worn through to the
soles of your shoes.

it is not the time
this is not the time

there is no such time
to tell you
that some pains ease away
on the ebb & toll of
there is no such dream that
can not fail, nor is hope our
only conquest.
we can stand boldly in burdening places (like earth here)
in our blunderings, our bloomings
our palms, flattened upward or pressed,
an unyielding down.


Jennifer and I would like to take this moment to wish our customers and friends a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.  2013 was our best year on record and we could not have done it without the support of new customers and the loyalty of old ones.  Thanks for all of your support in 2013.  We look forward to continuing to offer you quality service and products in 2014.

Merry Christmas

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.—Roy L. Smith

As I Grew Older It was a long time ago. I have almost forgotten my dream. But it was there then, In front of me, Bright like a sun- My dream. And then the wall rose, Rose slowly, Slowly, Between me and my dream. Rose until it touched the sky- The wall. Shadow. I am […]
