I stand at the juncture of yesterday and tomorrow,
Knowing not which to embrace.

The weight of years tilts the scale toward the past,
Providing the comfort of the known

My tomorrows however, as they are revealed
Will compel my attention

But today. Today is mine to create

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
