that's wonderful that you there for those poor souls who were in Vietnam. Lucky for me the UK didn't have the draft. yes, the world is a place of horror and it has always been so. even without the trauma of going into battle, the battle of just suiting up and showing up is painful enough.
at least we old farts are here to still tell the tales for those who have ears to listen.

There are so many times when I simply am not able to utter the words lurking inside.. Then you speak them and I think, "god, how does he do it"?
Hearing/seeing you and Anastasia had actually known each other was a warm ray of sunshine let into this otherwise dreary life..
For a while, I did "counseling" with returning Vietnam Vets because these young, old men wouldn't/couldn't speak with the hospital staff.. at least some would communicate with other veterans.. it is so hard to live with horror, let alone share the demons within.. Like a rabbit who just won't jump out of his cage..

anti social doesn't matter after 55 as far as i'm concerned.and staying quiet has never been my way in life.
it's right what you say about age and respect or the lack of it.
it's good to have this forum to show our work. you with your very interesting poetry and me with my movies.
also my dear and old friend Anastasia has just signed up, another very profound and interesting sensitive soul. so there is hope for us yet. we old ones can express ourselves here and that makes a change in this young persons attention deficit world of people all rushing to the next and the next and the next thing.
maybe we can help to slow things down just a tad and bring a little focus into this crazy, fucked up world.

This may be one of those times when I should shut up.. I won't, of course.. you're preaching to the quire here, Brian.. most people are ass-holes and most likely so am I, except I just don't care, because I despise most people... You know the older we get, the more people should value what we do in our lives and that's not going to happen.. So, you hold up a hand to count some who might be freinds (my gesture as well).. The world is turned upside down and I say, "fuck them, if they can't take a joke.. sounds slightly anti-social, but, there you have it.. CFW
