I am so excited!
I am so excited that I just had to share the good news. For those of you who don't know, I am working on my Associates in Arts degree in Human Services, Addictive Studies. My goal is to earn my masters in counseling. To make a long story short, I want to work in the Criminal Justice System, specifically with those incarcerated. Everyone tells me I'm crazy, but this is what I want to do. Anyway, I am due to start my internship in the fall and while I am free to work with any agency that specializes in counseling, I was hoping it would be somewhere in the CJS. As it so happens, one of my instructors (retired after 18 years in law enforcement) works with Douglas County Corrections (Omaha). Can you guess where this is going? Yep, I am scheduled to meet with the program manager on June 26, 2007! I am so excited... I can't wait! Wish me luck, guys!

Congrats and good luckWise men stand behind me, brave men stand beside me, but only fools stand against me.
The force that propels you to prevail when you are put to a test of survival will be a mindset that refuses to accept nothing but winning.
Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown, BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to reach out and bitch slap that motherf*cker upside the head.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
