Dear diary, I recall that day in 2000 when I created the first poetic portraits and visual poems to honor President Clinton and President George W.

Dear diary, I thought I may have had an enlightened moment yesterday.  But, I almost forgot just how time consuming it is to create a poetic portrait and a visual poem to honor an individual.  Yes, it’s now time to batter down the hatches and seriously research and follow the campaigns of John McCain and Barack Obama until November 4, 2008.  My light at the end of the tunnel will arrive at the close of election night.  For, only then will I be able to rest a little easier and focus the next several weeks on the winning Presidential candidate.  Well, it’s time for Mr. Sam Cooke’s Wonderful World and A Change Is Gonna Come!!!

Dear diary, today is a Temptin’ Temptations day.  I can’t seem to get enough of listening to Paul Williams sing "Don’t Look Back" and "I Want A Love I Can See".  Paul was the sexiest of all of the Temptations.  One day I may create a visual poem to honor the Temps.
