Pam  Gallo

Dreamer 

 

 


    ALTHOUGH I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY. 

MANY PEOPLE HERE ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB 

WANTED TO KNOW MORE

 ABOUT THE LIFE AND TIMES OF

 " PAM ". AKA: DREAMER , DREAMWALKER ,

 WALKER OF DREAMS , 

THE DITZY BLONDE WHO WRITES POETRY AND

 CREATES WEB PAGES.


    SO THIS IS A FEEBLE ATTEMPT 

TO SHED SOME LIGHT ON THE INNER

 WORKINGS, 

THE WHO, 

THE WHY, 

AND THE WHAT FOR 

OF 

PAM GALLO. 

I HOPE

 IT IS ENOUGH, 

BECAUSE 

IT IS ALL YOUR GOING TO GET. 

I GUESS THE FIRST

 HORRIBLE QUESTION 

I WILL PUT TO REST HERE IS:

HOW OLD ARE YOU? 

I HATE

 THAT ONE. 

I USUALLY ANSWER 

WITH SOME GLIB REMARK LIKE :

 IM OLD AS

 DIRT...

OR THAT 

I DATED MOSES 

WHEN HE PARTED THE RED SEA. 

BUT THAT

 DOESN'T'  SEEM TO BE WORKING ANYMORE 

FOR THE SIMPLE FACT I THINK

 THAT EVERYONE ON THE PLANET 

IS YOUNGER THEN ME 

AND : A) DOESN'T

 KNOW WHAT OLD AS DIRT MEANS...

B) THEY DON'T KNOW A MOSES 

LET ALONE

 WHERE THE RED SEA EVEN IS. 

SO LET ME SAY THIS. 

AND NEVER ASK ME AGAIN.

 I AM 56 YEARS OLD. 

I WAS BORN ON MARCH 18, 1951. 

ALRIGHT ? 

NOW IT'S OUT

 THERE. 

IM OLD...


    I WAS 

BORN AND RAISED 

ON LONG ISLAND. 

LONG ISLAND 

IS THAT LITTLE

 ISLAND IN THE ATLANTIC 

THAT LOOKS LIKE A FISH. 

ITS ON THE EAST COAST.

 BELOW CANADA 

AND 

ABOVE FLORIDA. 

ARE YOU GETTING A VISUAL ? 

IT ISN'T

 PRETTY IS IT ? 

REALLY, 

THIS IS ONE 

OF 

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES 

IN THE

 WORLD 

IF YOU LOVE THE WATER 

LIKE I DO. 

BUT 

I HOPE THAT AT MY AGE

 I

 CAN MOVE 

TO WARM SUNNY FLORIDA 

IN THE NEAR FUTURE 

WHERE

 IT IS HOT

 AND SUNNY 

ALL YEAR LONG. 

HOT WEATHER 

IS GOOD

 FOR FRAIL BONES WHEN

 YOUR OLD.


    I HAVE 2 GREAT CHILDREN. 

THEY AREN'T REALLY CHILDREN ANYMORE BUT

 MOTHERS CAN SAY THAT EVEN IF THEIR KIDS ARE 70 ...

I HAVE A SON WHO IS

 MARRIED NOW NAMED JASON( 33). 

AND I HAVE A DAUGHTER

 NAMED STACEY(24).

STACEY IS STILL STUCK HERE WITH ME 

AND SHE IS MY BEST

 FRIEND. 

THEY WERE A HUGE INSPIRATION 

TO A LOT OF THE PIECES I HAVE

 WRITTEN OVER TIME.


    THIS WOULDN'T BE COMPLETE 

WITHOUT MENTIONING MY MOM AND MY

 GRANDPARENTS. 

BEFORE I WAS BORN, 

MY MOTHER LEFT THE GRASP OF MY

 VERY ABUSIVE, ALCOHOLIC FATHER. 

SHE WENT BACK HOME TO HER PARENTS

 TO HAVE ME. 

A PLACE WHERE I WOULD BE SAFE. 

I WAS RAISED IN A HOME,

 WITH MY MOTHER, 

AND MY GRANDPARENTS. 

MY GRANDFATHER ( DADDY)

 TOOK OVER THE ROLE OF FATHER TO ME....

AND WAS THE ONLY FATHER I

 EVER REALLY KNEW. 

 

MY GRANDMOTHER, 

AFTER RAISING ALL OF HER OWN

 CHILDREN, ALLOWED MY MOM AND I 

TO LIVE IN THAT HOME UNTIL THE DAY

 I LEFT TO BE MARRIED 

AND ALWAYS 

MADE ME FEEL LIKE I BELONGED.

 LOOSING MY DADDY 

WAS ONE OF THE HARDEST LOSSES 

I EVER HAD TO DEAL

 WITH IN MY LIFE. 

HE PASSED IN 1980. 

IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO ANY OF MY

 PAGES, 

THEN YOU WILL SEE THE IMPACT 

HE STILL 

HAS ON MY REASON FOR

 LIVING.


    AND 

OF COURSE MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER. 

WELL WHAT CAN I SAY: 

HE WAS

 ABUSIVE AND AN ALCOHOLIC 

AND 

HE BECAME BED RIDDEN WITH A MASSIVE

 STROKE IN 1995. 

THAT'S WHEN I WAS SUMMONED 

TO CARE FOR THIS MAN

  (FATHER) 

WHO I HARDLY KNEW 

AND REALLY DID NOT LIKE AS A HUMAN

 BEING. 

I WOULDN'T HAVE TRADED IT FOR THE WORLD. 

I GOT TO CRAM ALL

 THE YEARS OF MY LIFE 

INTO THE 7 MONTHS 

HE REMAINED ALIVE. 

I GOT TO

 SAY IT ALL...

HEAR IT ALL...

AND WALK THE WALK. 

A VALUED LESSON. 

A

 TREASURED TESTIMONY. 

HE DIED IN 1996.


    MY MOM AND MY GRAM 

CAME TO LIVE WITH ME 

AFTER MY MARRIAGE

 COLLAPSED. 

IM NOT GOING THERE 

BECAUSE I COULD WRITE A BOOK ON

 THAT SUBJECT. 

BUT NOT LONG AFTER MY FATHER, 

I LOST MY GRANDMOTHER

 AND MY AUNT WHO I LOVED SO MUCH

 AND THEN 

MY MOTHER WAS

 DIAGNOSED WITH LUNG CANCER IN 2002. 

I LOST MY MOM ON JUNE 29TH ,2003

THAT DAY WAS MY DAUGHTER STACEY'S BIRTHDAY. 

WHAT A

 BITTERSWEET DANCE. 

A HUGE GAPING HOLE....

I STOPPED WRITING. 

I DIED

 FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS...

NO WRITING, 

NO COMPUTER, 

NO FRIENDS, 

NO LIFE,

 JUST EXIST FROM DAY TO DAY. 

GOING THROUGH THE MOVES OF LIVING.


    YET....

THERE WERE THOSE HERE 

ON THIS CONFOUNDED CONTRAPTION

 CALLED THE COMPUTER 

WHO RESISTED MY ATTEMPTS TO PULL AWAY 

AND

 DIVE HEADLONG INTO THE ABYSS. 

THEY HELD TIGHT. 

THEY LOVED ME.

 THEY

 ENCOURAGED ME...

AND THEY FORCED ME BACK INTO THE LIGHT.

 THE

 PRODDED ME 

AND SUPPORTED ME....

AND COAXED ME BACK FROM THE

 BRINK OF NOTHINGNESS...


    I AM HERE.
    I AM BACK.
    YOUR STUCK WITH ME.


    MY NAME IS DREAMER.... 

THE WALKER OF DREAMS....

AND WHAT ARE

 DREAMS 

BUT THE REALITY THAT HAS YET TO HAPPEN ?


    IM SHARING 

THE MOST MEMORABLE PERIOD 

IN MY LIFE HERE....

A " PEACE " (no not...piece) 

   OF THE 60'S...

IT WAS MY TIME TO SHINE....

SO PULL UP A CHAIR 

AND LET A SMILE FILL YOUR HEART. 

ITS A LONG BUMPY RIDE. 

BUT I PROMISE YOU WONT BE BORED.

 

 

 


  
PEACE OF THE SIXTIES:

CLICK THE LINK....OR JUST READ ON....



 

O



   BY ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, 

THIS PAGE SHOULD BE BLANK....

   BUT FLASHES OF MEMORIES 

BOLT THROUGH 

MY BLONDE, FRIZZY LITTLE HEAD 

LIKE BOLTS OF LIGHTENING 

OR SOMEBODY ON A BAD LSD TRIP.


   IT MAKES ME WONDER, 

IF THIS IS SENILITY PLAIN AND SIMPLE 

OR THOSE DAMN 60'S...

   WHATEVER IT IS, 

I FIGURE IT LIKE THIS, 

ITS MY MORAL RESPONSIBILITY 

TO PASS ON WHAT HAZY TIE DYED MEMORIES 

I HAVE LEFT TO THE NEW GENERATION...


   IF NOTHING ELSE, 

THEY WILL SHAKE THERE HEADS IN DISGUST AND SAY:::

" THEY DID STUFF LIKE THAT BACK THEN"

....EEEEWWWWWWWW...


   I KNEW OF NO BETTER WAY 

THEN TO PUT ON SOME TUNES FROM MY ERA, 

LIGHT INCENSE

 AND LET THE MEMORIES HIT ME IN THE HEAD 

LIKE A SCREEN DOOR BANGIN IN A HURRICANE...

   SO AS I SAT RUBBING MY WATERY EYES 

FROM ALL THE DAMN SMOKE AND STINK IN THE ROOM, 

I STARTED A LIST.


   WITH JANIS JOPLIN

 SCREAMIN HER ASS OFF IN THE BACKGROUND 

IT STARTED TO ALMOST CREATE ITSELF. 

SO BY THE LIGHT OF MY TURQUOISE LAVA LAMP 

I WROTE::::

   "THE LIST":::::

JANIS JOPLIN, 

HENDRIX, 

MELANIE, 

GRATEFUL DEAD, 

CLAPTON, 

FLEETWOOD MAC, 

STEVIE NICKS, 

AND SANTANA......

45'S AND ALBUMS BLASTING ON THE RECORD PLAYER....

POSTERS, 

BLACK LIGHTS, 

CANDLES, 

INCENSE, 

LAVA LAMPS, 

LOVE BEADS, 

WHERE CEILING AND FLOOR WERE JUST ONE SPACE. 

GROOVY, 

COOL ,

BITCHIN, 

SEX, 

LOVE, 

BABY, 

AND SAYING NOTHING....

WAS THE MOST AWESOME STATEMENT OF ALL...

   WHITE LIPSTICK, 

BLACK EYELINER, 

LONG STRAIGHT HAIR (USED MY GRAMS IRON) 

PEASANT DRESSES, 

FLOWERS, 

BEADS, 

HOT PANTS, 

BELLBOTTOMS, 

HIP HUGGERS, 

PLATFORM FUNKY ASS SHOES, 

GO GO BOOTS, 

AND BARE FEET, 

TIE DYED EVERYTHING, 

NO BRAS 

AND JUST TO BE FREE BABY....WAS GROOVY.

   SEX WAS FUN.....

BACK IN THE DAY

 WHEN ALL YA HAD TO WORRY ABOUT 

WAS GETTING CAUGHT, 

INSTEAD OF DROPPING DEAD...

   WOODSTOCK WAS A HAPPENING, 

NOT A PLACE. 

AND GETTING HIGH 

WAS A WAY TO TRAVEL 

TO PLACES WHERE YOU JUST HAVEN'T BEEN....

    MINUS THE CAR, PLANE, BUS OR TRAIN....

   IM SURE 

THAT MANY MORE FLASHES 

WILL BLAST INTO MY IMMENSELY BURNT OUT BRAIN. 

AND SOME OF THEM WONT....

BUT THAT'S THE 60'S........ 

CHECK BACK AGAIN, 

BEING THAT IM AS OLD AS DIRT....

I HAVE LOTS OF LIFE'S ADVENTURES TO SHARE WITH YA... 

IF I CAN REMEMBER EM ALL.... 

ILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE STONE TABLETS 

WHERE I HAVE EVERYTHING CHISELED IN, 

AND SEE IF I CAN PULL OUT A FEW MORE GOOD ONES... 

 

UNTIL THEN:::::: 

"PEACE BABY"



   PEACE.....LIGHT.....

AND FOREVER 

THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE 

ON EARTH AND IN THE HEAVENS.....

LOVE: 

PAM.....
