Escape to Paradise; Our Winter Trip to Maui PDF Print E-mail
Written by Sid Greenhaw   

Introduction (Part 1)

It was never supposed to happen; Ed (my twin) and I being able to enjoy a trip to the Hawaiian islands, specifically Maui together!

First of all it is difficult for us to take time off together since we work for the same company. Secondly, we always considered this a world class, once in a lifetime a trip, beyond our grasp, one for other people; those more privileged, the married, the well healed, those of substantial means. Many of our relatives, including our late mom and dad and also many friends wanted to make this premier trip but never had the opportunity. Therefore, we considered this "The Holy Grail" of vacation trips one that might help us some in compensating for the voids of losing many close family members, the voids of never being married and also serve as a bit of equalizer; of helping us catch up on life's experiences and bring into better balance rewards to hard work and discipline ratios.

"The Outcast" PDF Print E-mail
Written by Billie Nardozzi   

Was gawked at at events and parties
Was ridiculed by former teachers
Was chastised by neighborhood bullies
And unwelcomed by God-fearing preachers
Was disapproved by friends and colleagues
Was disenchanted by any enrapturing
