You don't know me
You don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
How many of you would sit and judge me
Ever walked the Streets of Bakersfield...............
From the Kern County Desert....
Observations....
Commentary....
Small essays and other things that come to mind or suit me at the time.
All are welcome here, to my world, such that it is.
A walking contradiction, partly truth, partly fiction,
taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home......

Serenity

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me
"Sign on, young man, and sail with me. The stature of our homeland is no more than the measure of ourselves. Our job is to keep her free. Our will is to keep the torch of freedom burning for all. To this solemn purpose we call on the young, the brave, the strong, and the free. Heed my call, Come to the sea. Come Sail with me." -- John Paul Jones

Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

Giving back and more…Meet MSGT Shayne Meder USAF (Ret)

The Retired Master Sergeant is a Facebook friend of mine. I got to see some of her work when I was at the 2102 MCAS Miramar Air Show in October.
There are some really nice pics at the link. Enjoy!
BTW, any of you airplane fans might want to add the Photorecon site to your favourites list. I did.

MSgt Meder's work is most excellent. And she's a helluva lot better looking than most retired MSgts. ;-)
