Anti-War Shout-Out!

Anti-War Call Out!
A photo I captured several years back that I came across going through boxes. Please respect one another’s opinions on this. From the side of a house in Ohio…back in the bush administration war mongering days.—©g.a.meeder,2013®

Letter that I treasure…

“Letter that i treasure…”—©g.a.meeder, 2013®



The above photograph is a letter that I received years ago(1983, to be exact) when I enjoyed the hobby of pen-pals, letter-writing, which today is now unheard of. It was this letter from a young boy, fifteen-years old who was terminally ill, suffering from an inoperable brain tumor…I have kept it all these years and I re-read it every now and again just to keep my head on straight because he didn’t get the chance to live like I did and I remember his kindness to take the time to write out a letter to a young woman who learned to love across the lines of a letter from a dying fifteen-year old soul.

Pandora’s Box Blues Chaser

Pandora’s Box Blues Chaser

Old buckets of engine grease,

mouse droppings, shredded books

are swept up and tossed away

along with seven years rough roads

and some of the most turbulent seas

of small business woes

boxed, packed away amongst

dishes, books, coffee cups

with sincere hopes of

pandora’s box of shitty luck

be gone! no more!

next time you come knockin

peekin round our doors

there will be a deaf ear turned

almost guaranteed to your

all too familiar rappin and tappin

of bad luck blues

upon our door.
