A Poem

I tried to find it in the bottle

but you were never there.

I tried to find it in those joints

but then I never cared.

I tried to find it from my girlfriend

but I was left alone.

I thought I saw it on the tv

but I was really stoned.

I found it in the silence

When the chaos was all done.

I found it in my weakness

When the highs had up n' run.

I found it in the broken

Who had no other home.

I found it in myself

When everything was gone.

My favorite book

      I loved this, the things we seek are always so much closer to home than we realize.

      Hey there Moms. I actually have been to Maui. It was when I was fourteen, so it's been a lil while. But it's as gorgeous as you say.. I didn't really do any hiking when I was there, but I did get to go scuba diving in a cave, snorkeling, and some deep sea fishing. I'll always remember the warm rain, we don't have that here in Portland..haha It's freezing! Thanks for stopping by my hub Moms... and you too Jinny :) !

      You and your camera would really enjoy Maui if you have not been there already. So would our friend Jinny.

      There is so much majestic nature to hike thru. I would love for you and your camera to see it all: the painted eucalyptus trees, sand of all colors, the waterfalls, and the sunset on the volcano.

      Many Blessings.
