Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Still Life

Posted 11-17-2017 at 01:14 AM by Ludlum'sDaughter14
Because it's 3 a.m., and my homework is done, and I'm just waiting to fall asleep, I wrote the poem that sprouted in my head during my shower. Here it is, fresh off the press and unedited:

Still Life

Bigger people got there first,
Painting colors they liked best,
Splashing blobs from their own mess.

When I held my brush at last,
Several layers had been laid:
Yellow, green, and angry red.

Frantic, I despaired; but then
Years passed, and the paint was dry.
I saw colors clear, and why

Deep blue emptied out my eyes,
Purple shone the sleepless nights,
Yellow held me back from light.

Paint is permanent, but see,
When it's dry, that's not the end -
You can paint on top, my friend.

Twenty layers deep it goes.
Twenty more will cover, blend,
Synthesize a richer end.
