The last few days have been very surreal

Last week SIs and I ran all over town

To dot all the i's and cross all the T's

For pops funeral this past Saturday.

All went well as the sun was out and a clear day

Many cousins and family friends came

that I have not seen for many years

It was a sad day and a happy day also


Pop had a military funnel with two color guards

A Scottish bag piper playing in the back ground

A full bird army chapelyn said the last words

A hand full of dirt I said Farwell to pop for last time


I want share this poem that I penned on Wednesdays 10-15

Which was my Mums Sister, niece and me?

Looking over the tombstone as to where Pops was to rest.


This covers the crazy week before the funeral

Missing keys

Where about unknown

In through the open window

To open up the front door


Dust and dirt

Are all about

Old mail from light years past

Find a green bag

And fill to toss away

Truck in the drive

Missing keys once again

Speed dials triple A

At last the white sled runs


But wait -- there’s is more

Missing keys

Strike again

Camper shell remains locked


All the rooms I the house

Become a war zone

Soon more people show up

To the dance within

Many hands filling countless bags

For the garbage man to toss


The days become a blur

Until the day of days

Are here at last


Soon a few ticks from noon

Poppa will be laid to rest


The family circles around

With the sounds of bagpipe

Flow in the wind


With a hand full of dirt

I toss below so I can let go

But Poppa you will be always

Be with me forever

I shall never forget

Long Trip Home

Sun Oct 12, 2014, 1:40 PM


Going to So Cal


For its time to put Pop

To rest in the lawn of green

He will then be in bed

With mum once again

Seeing my lovely Sister

Will be the high light of my trip

So much to do

No one tell you about this

Of all the steps it takes

To give our lov ones

Rest forever in peace


Next Saturday if am strong

I will view Pop for the last time

Before going into the ground

For the big sleep

I will be gone for the next two weeks

My family and friends

For that time I will not be plugged-in


Do not worry for I will be back

Until then I give you all a group :hug:

To all take care and keep your art

Passion dreams alive


Until next time see ya in dreamtime:sleep:

earily moring call
from my dear sister
and this is what
she did say

dad has gone away

the doctors all siad
that his heart just
gave up

i should have gave
him a phone call

i should have been
there for him in
his hour of need

so all my family of friends
i will not be here for awhile
but someday to return
as soon as my world
has been resoted to order

My deviantART Story

Fri Aug 8, 2014, 1:24 PM


Frist i want to share some art with five of my longtime Da friends

:iconfourteenthstar:    my friend FionaRainbow Days by fourteenthstar 

:iconfangedfem:     my friend Lesa-wary eyes- by fangedfem

:iconasclaire:    my friend Pat_SiLeNCe_ by asclaire   

:icongreenfaery:    my friend AndyCommdev-Greenfaery-Sathom by greenfaery 

:iconnebu:   my friend Shelley
    Silent Scream by nebu

found out more about the 14 year Da birthday here…

Now on where my Da story

Well let’s see
Where to start
Oh yes in the beging
Now let us go back in time
A time when the da was a baby
Of an age of two

Yep for me the da we go way back
Now entry the summer of 2002
I was between jobs after losing
My shortly after 911

While seating in a hotel room
With nothing to do before a job interview
I said to myself...let surf the telly
So I did and came upon a show
What’s this is all about I wonder...umm
It was a computer program for geeks
It was called screen savers

During the show two guys came into view
Yes the one and only yellow alien :iconjark: and :iconmatteo:

There were talking about an internet art site
Well I being an artist my eyes grew wide open
Please tell me more now I did say

In the end there gave a plug about the da art site
I hurried to find pen and paper and jotted down
The internet address and could not wait to go home
To check this new art site on the internet

At home I turn on my one eyed friend and went
Straight to the da to just it out
In no time I was signed up and had my own art page
At first I was taken aback to show my art story to the web world
It took some time before I posted my first pic
Ok ok it was a long time about 6 months later

I was hooked line and sinker
in the pasting year that followed
I have become friends to many amazing artist
My dear old mum I could hear her now
Son you need to get out and meet new friend
I had no idea that I would make friends for
All over the world I have come to lov the da

It was a place that everyone was speaking
The same language which was the wonderful world of art
When I log on to the da and after viewing my friend’s art
I became pumped up and can't wait to make my own dreams
Come to life through my own art

In my time here at the da I have learned a lot about Photoshop
Which with this new knowable has help me to fulfill my to bring
My own dreamtime dream to come to life so I can share
With all to see and feel my inner feelings deep inside
I lov this place more today than yesterday
Looking back is history and good memories to hold forever

I am looking forward to what the da has in store for the next 14 years
This I do say to the entire early artist that had the vision lov and passion
To make your dreams come make this place the DA for all that has
followed to share the beauty of the wonderful world of art

Without you I would not be half the artist is today
...I give thee all a big thanks and a group :hug:

So that’s is it
That is my DA story

So with that I will see ya all in dreamtime my DA family and friends...:sleep:

...I Can Get It Out Of My Head

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 5:25 PM

...I can’t get it out

             Of my head


Yes I can’t get

                       It out my head


My friend Nick Stone

                                   Is dead


Yes it’s true

Only a moment of time

                            Did he have?


In the end

This day became sad


Let us not forget

       Of the great art

That he did give


Though his dreams

                 Will live for every one

To always to remember

Wed Jun 11, 2014, 5:36 PM by caddman:iconcaddman:

...passing through the wind
going down in a tailspin
signs of the airport slipping
deep under the shifting sand

Here I stand alone
doors of blue waiting
for the next white noise
to take me down

Sitting and watching the
birds sail away on a cloud of grey
waiting and counting the ticks
Of the second-hand moving by

day dreams and ice cream dripping
TV screens of yellow and green
the madness swirling pulling me
under her spell only time will tell

If this is all real or a memory
that’s gone that took the wrong turn
"Still I stand alone screaming"
cell phone across the golden dawn

Mon May 26, 2014, 1:32 PM by caddman:iconcaddman:

hide your head no more my dear
for the sun is coming to warm your face
rise and show us your inner beauty
that hides in the shadow

do not go away today
for i need you
to be part of me

for this moment
and until the sun
will never shine no more

******************************************** we slip into the dream
the one that of before
we must ask our self
what is the lesson here

why become the question
tossing and turning
the night drags on

down the rabbit hole
we fall until a small
racing thought becomes clear

the broken mirror
was the portal of my return
forever swimming in void
until the next dream

Good bye old friend

Sat May 3, 2014, 12:28 PM by caddman:iconcaddman:

Good bye old friend
As if lay you down
Never again will if
See you around
We shared many
A good time
You knew all the
Place to go
To share life time
Now if must let go
You were always
There for me
To please me
Morning...noon...or night
Every good thing
Must come to an end
Today is your time
My longtime friend
For tomorrow
It will start a new
To see a fresh face
Come this afternoon
Time for me to rebuilt
Change sometimes
Can be hard
And if ask myself why
Just when you know
Everything about them
They must go away
So today if will say
Goodbye old friend xp
Hello new friend
Windows number 7

To the new Year

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 31, 2013, 10:50 AM

…Four Thoughts for today…


Go forth with a clear mind
Focus to what is here and now
You will be able then to overcome your fears

In dreams...the fire within
Can be put into motion to show
That all is possible when you believe

As you start a new adventure
The energy will blaze
As the wheels of action take place
Then your creative side will show

Stand your ground
You’re not alone in the battle
Between unlike forces
The bridges to others in time
Can be strong again
But first trust and forgive
Is in order to do so

to all my friends near and far

...wishing you and family a very Happy new years

...may 2014 be the best one yet...:hug::heart:
