We dance

And we dance from
the warmth of her eyes – that
warmth we feel (you know
the one, it delights in
surprising us

when we’re too cold to
laugh) as that smile we
see (you know the
one, it speaks silently
in secret to us

when the world passes too close)
pulls us close with a
tug, shelter and
home in one.

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
