It wasn’t December

was April

the sun was longer

had been for  a while

but Skies refused all color

just gray

east wind chill

Sun struggled

heart ached

ached for sun

Sun ached

For me

Lost lovers

I made it through college, started at Pace in New York, family seemed to think I needed a business degree. I didn't last long, two double periods of accounting a week and I was off to N.Y. U. To make a long story short ( too late for that) I graduated from UCLA and actually, my biggest kick out of that is just saying, especially here on the east coast UCLA, but I could care less, been in Boston since 1975, though I was coming for a year or so. A very good friend at the time, she said to me "Dan you'll never leave Boston" so dear Florida “Sun Spot Baby" you're down there, been in and out of radio, TV, acting and that's me in a nut shell.


  1. Beautiful Dan, so love the brevity and urgent, pleading tone of this and scene you create. :)

    Pete, Thank you. Urgent is just what I was feeling, and when your feeling urgent brevity is a natural result. I’m not sure everyone will get that, but you did.

  3. So few words, Dan, and so much poignancy. Wonderful!

    Thank you Cher, and sorry about the picture I guess I just had Star fish in my eyes :-)

  5. My love affair with the sun must be conducted with great discretion. Too ardent an embrace might send me up in flames!

    I’m a bit a sizzle myself right now :-)

Got something to say?
