Thanks to my buddy Joy in Ohio for sending me the following story from on the internet some where. It helped me realize; nothing is ever as bad as how it seems:


This happened about a month ago just outside a little town in the low country of West Virginia, and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's real.

A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a really dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm. Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard he could hardly see his hand in front of his face. Suddenly he saw a car moving slowly, approaching and appearing ghost-like in the rain. It slowly crept toward him and stopped.

Wanting a ride really bad, the guy jumped in the car and closed the door, only then did he realize that there was nobody behind the wheel. The car slowly started moving and the guy was terrified, too scared to think of jumping out and running.

The guy saw that the car was slowly approaching a sharp curve, still too scared to jump out, he started to pray and begging for his life; he was sure the ghost car would go off the road and into the marsh and he would surely drown. Then just before the curve, a hand appeared through the driver's window and turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend.

Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every time they reached a curve. Finally the guy, scared to near death, had all he could take and jumped out of the car and ran to town.

Wet and in shock, he went into a cafe and voice quivering, ordered a cup of hot coffee, black, then told everybody about his experience.

A silence enveloped the cafe and everybody got goose bumps when they realized the guy was telling the truth and was not just some weirdo.

About half an hour later two guys walked into the cafe and one says to the other: Look Jethro there's that idiot who rode in our car when we were pushing it in the rain.

11 by Wayne Adams

(book description): "A serial killer appears in Asheboro, North Carolina targeting street level drug dealers. Police Detective Ben Clark is assigned the most difficult case of his career with the task of tracking this elusive killer. He must find this killer before more die, and in spite of public opinion favoring this killer, Detective Clark must remember his oath as a sworn police officer and perform his duties according to the law."

Connections Love Poems by Wayne Adams

(book description): "Certainly love has been celebrated throughout the centuries. Shakespeare wrote of love and its beauty. Troubadours from the Middle Ages sang of its many assets. And the Bible has a whole chapter devoted to love in Song of Solomon. This book, Connections, attempts to continue to celebrate love within the 21st century. A century more known for its technological achievements than for romance. In Connections I explore love in all of its shapes forms and configurations and end with poems that I dedicate to those who are near and dear to me."

Medication For The Soul by Wayne Adams

(book description): "Medication for the Soul is an expression of relationship-the relationship that is most vital in any human being, and that is the relationship with God. Through poetry, that relationship is expressed from the very soul."

Where Is Spring?
by Wayne Adams

As I gaze upon the dark and wintry clouds
I ask myself, where is spring/
Is spring a millenia away?
Is it only a dream?
An unfulfilled wish?
It is February and the idea of sun filled spring days
With flowers blooming seems so distant.
Where is spring?
Then my thoughts turn to you
Is not spring in those dancing blue eyes
In those eyes I see spring is here.
Where is spring?
Spring is in the warmth of your heart
A heart that speaks of love
Where is spring?
Spring is in those lovely hands that must be busy.
Hands that create works of wonder.
Where is spring?
Spring is here.
It is in the form of my beloved
