MW Mobile Blog

For friends, family and the random search engine visitor. This blog started as an experiment in mobile blogging from my Palm TREO 600 700 Prē HTC Evo,Samsung 5. Now it serves as a simple repository of favorite activities. Expect bad golf, good fishing, great sailing, eating, drinking, adventure travel, occasional politics and anything else I find interesting along the way including, but not limited to, any of the labels listed here...

Things are wrapping up...

Crowd is dispersing. Picked up some literature from this guy for a little lunchtime reading. Thought you might enjoy a sample poem from this issue of the Haight Ashbury Literary Journal:
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO AMWAY?

Where'd all its wonderful promises go?

All those neighbors two or three blocks over
who'd for year been wanting to know you better
without your knowing -
neighbors who wanted nothing
so much as they wanted you to be happy
and rich?

And what happened to all those warehouses somewhere
filled with special Amway soap?---
and the twice-a-a-year pyramidic cheering
at some resort somewhere
around huge iced-bowls of shrimp?

And how'd it happen you're not rich?

- Reid Bush
I kinda like it.
