A life by chocolate entails finding sweetness in the light and dark. Moreso, it's about addiction to cocoa. An insatiable sweet-tooth doesn't hurt. Well, not until the yucky tartar buildup and stuff. To the point, I strive to make you laugh like never before, cry in a good way, and hoard all the fair trade chocolate I haven't yet found. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.
And I Wrote This Book.

Memorial Day, A Child's Perspective
(A repost from last Memorial Day)
Here's my beloved nephew, Jeremy, when he was a wee 1.5 year old babe in July, 2008.
Above is a "poem" I wrote at age 9. It was 1976. Vietnam had finally ended and teachers decided to start talking about the war. We were also enjoying all sorts of extravagant celebrations for the U.S. bicentennial.
Enjoy this "poem to think of." Perhaps it will make you think of, say, the construction of more forests to end annoyances to the animal kingdom or, well, something else.
May it be a meaningful, peaceful and safe Memorial Day.
With gratitude and blessings to all who have served and will serve our country, and to their loved ones, for all time.
