Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.

“Another Rant w/ some Poetry Attached”

As I have said before, there are so many thoughts running through my head that they get a little jumbled. I really do need to start carrying around a pen and a notepad to write things down. I have stated before that while at work it is not always easy to find time to do … Continue reading

“Welcome to my New Year’s Revolution”

That’s right I said revolution, it is definitely not a typo. Resolutions are for those that never intend to keep their promises. Promises made to themselves basically. If you must lie, lie to your congressman, lie to the policeman that just pulled you over. Never lie to the people that mean the most to you, … Continue reading

“Necessary Tears”

There are tears of laughter, and there are tears of pain. They can flow like the river, or they can fall like the rain. There are tears that we hide, and there are tears that we show. You learn when to hold back you know when to let it go. There will be times when … Continue reading

The Thin Line “Ignorant VS Oblivious”

Mind you, this is coming from time spent with certain roommates. The ones that drink them selves into a stupor and then ramble off at the mouth with no fore-thought. Opening the mouth before engaging the brain. OR…Open mouth and insert foot. Most of the time it is followed by a quick turn around with … Continue reading

“Am i Wrong?”

I know I am not the best judge of character all the time. I would love to give people the benefit of the doubt. Lately here most of these people are tossing my confidence over a proverbial cliff. I have no idea what is wrong with everyone these days, and maybe it is just me. … Continue reading

“Seriously The Wrong Cup-o-Joe”

There was another school shooting the other day. This one was close to home on at least a couple different levels. Level one, it was here in Sparks Nevada where I live. Level two, two of my co-workers have children that go to that school and another has a granddaughter that goes there.  I do … Continue reading

“Loosening Up the Thoughts?”

Question, am I going to rant about reason and all the psychological advantages behind it? Or maybe is it going to be about the reason(s) we do what we do? Or am I going to be reasonably reasonable about reasons of another kind? I don’t really know. So I am ranting just to try to loosen … Continue reading

Ramblin’ man radio show

The topics I would like to discuss are the folowing: For the first fifteen minutes I want to rant about the shut down. Must be the lamest thing our government has done … Continue reading

“The Cosmic Serpent”

There are a number of people that will go on telling you/me/anyone and everyone that will listen. That with each new dawn, new day, starts a new beginning. They like to think and definitely say, that each day brings new hope for the future. It is the time to let the past be the past … Continue reading


 I know there are times when you may feel that life just isn’t going your way. This is when your mettle really gets tested. Whether it is being tested by God, or some other entity, is not for me to say. Maybe it is your own guilt and dissatisfaction that builds your load. It may … Continue reading
