Senses’ Destiny to Flying Dog Brings Joy 
A lover's destiny is locked in his senses 
A flying dog challenges people's senses 

Senses’ Destiny (round) 

He turns his thoughts again to roam the sky
Beyond the edge of all that he can be
To wander past his senses’ destiny
And bid his weary world profound goodbye
He settles in the flowers of his soul
Where traces of a Joyful heart now fly
And whispers lost in dreams wait one more try
A purpose for his reason to be whole
He feels no need for darkness or the light
When countless wonders seem to guide his stroll
Toward existence unknown waiting for goal
And no time to hinder his way or his flight
Then he hears a voice from some memory
A beckoning need his senses excite
A promised forever to which held tight
Which calls out to him please come back to me 

An endless round disguised as an Italian sonnet. Make no mistake. This is a round. Lines one and four are echoed in lines two and three of the next stanza, all the way back to the beginning of the poem. (ABBA CAAC DCCD BDDB) In theory this poem has no beginning or end. Notice that even the last line is calling him back. 

Ever wonder what it would be like to relive the most wondrous portion of our life over and over again. Who knows? Maybe we do. I can't remember. And that isn't the point of the poem. What would it be like to go through the best moments of our life over and over again? There are some who think that this would eventually lead to torture. (The endless repetition.) Other people believe we would get used to it. (Acceptance) I'm from t school who likes reliving pleasant memories and creating new pleasant memories. 

Arlene and my favorite place to vacation was Disneyland and the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. This is because we went there on our honeymoon and were blessed with a perfect day. Yes, a perfect day. One we will never have again. The one thing about a perfect day is so much can go wrong. But Arlene and I faithfully tried to relive this moment, undaunted. We even tried to recreate this precious moment in Carmel, which was a close romantic get-away. Arlene and I were very lucky in our escapes. We rarely had big problems stand in our way of enjoyment. Maybe this might give a clue to a perfect day. So, here we have a person who has lived perfection, wandering to relive that moment eternally. 

And what about you? Have you ever touched upon perfection? We may have to drop away what others have sold us and listen to our own heart. A day, a moment, an eternity, a look caught in those dream filled eyes, a sunset captured as two hearts meet and drift on and on. And when we hear it calling us back, follow your heart and enjoy. 

Now let us sit back and enjoy: Angel Voices sing Abba "I Had A Dream" 

Coming to a pet shop near you 

An American Animal Hospital Assoc. poll found that 33% of dog owners admit to talking to their dogs on the phone and leaving answering machine messages for them while away. Believe that? The next thing they'll tell use us dogs can fly. Well. as a matter of fact (or YouTube hits), Scott David Winn, of ScottDW, has created a new video. A video about a flying dog. No silly, dogs can't fly. Everybody knows that. It's the shoes. 
These shoes will soon be coming to a pet shop near you. Be coming as soon as someone invents them. "FLYING DOG BRINGS JOY!"

Life is a song - sing it. 
Life is a game - play it. 
Life is a challenge - meet it. 
Life is a dream - realize it. 
Life is a sacrifice - offer it. 
Life is love - enjoy it.
