Britney Spears, is she wrong?

I am almost afraid to post this.. Britney Spears come on Todd.....but...when in doubt.... put it to speak.
OK, my friend and I, over some just ok sushi last night at PM in Nashville, had this Britney Spears discussion.
I said....on Britney's behalf and speaking from only my own experiences that...for me.
my teen years were very extreme party years...almost dangerous party years...and if there were camera's around me then they would have captured some pretty crazy stuff. I have grown out of that but still respect those years because I needed them to burn through so speak to a reality of who I am now...
So for someone who has never had those crazy times and have those crazy times in them, they have to come out sometime.
Don't know much of Britneys history but I think she was a child star...hence no crazy teen years.
Personally I could care less about this but see it at Kroger and Harris Teeter all the is ridiculous...leave her alone..who cares...
So my friend quickly pointed out that she had everything...threw it away...and the biggest thing, to me at least I agree maybe, are her kids that are involved...but after writing this...I think he is wrong ...we just need to leave her alone....oh well I maybe deleting this tomorrow......T

Poetry: published in Offerings "Next"

My Poem "Next" got published in Offerings Magazine.....don't know if this is too hopeful...but here it is anyway..cheers T


Twenty years will pass and the world is a grandiose medicine box.
Your skin is like clean clothes and life the eternal debt your collecting on.
God stays at home with parents and the hunger for Eve and fruit is never

Forty years will pass before the first emotion screams.
A bird will swoop.
Women will all look naked, Church like valium to the spirit,
God a crotched predator, and life as loose as the change
you’ve gathered into an account.

Sixty years will pass and your head and heart like a down pillow.
Clothes will look colorful and important and puppies more valuable
than dogs.
God will be the older brother you’ve learned to live with and grown to love and heaven the
perfect park for a family reunion.

Wheelchair thoughts

Well a bunch of questions about why I haven't written something about the wheelchair. Reality is I never really think about alot of times it is something that doesn't even cross my mind. Also when I see myself in videos...sometimes it hits me....whoa...I'm in a wheelchair...and then I'll be like oh yeah I am, that's cool..So anyway I don't know if I have something really big to say about it..but in reality I guess that is a philosophy in itself....Cheers T
