About GabrielSweet


Well, these boxes are always so uninviting. How do you condense yourself into a few lines? Never have been very good at it, to verbose. Let's see, I am married, but she has not yet put a profile on here.

I am a guitar player and a singer, my youth was spent in several bands and loving the thrill it gave. I was in Ohio at the time, 1975, and prior in high school in Indiana some small time garage band gigs. The band I was in in Ohio, Lickity Split, did alot of work around Columbus as well as a couple of regional small tours. We opened for Edgar Winter Group, ZZ Top, and Grand Funk in 1975. I am sure some of you may not have any idea of who these bands are, but I believe you can find them on youtube. I will never forget that time of my life. Now I play an acoustic mostly and sing for my grandkids, but if given the chance the road would take me away again.

I was also Military. A Ranger in a LRRP unit (Long Range Recon Patrol) and loved that as well, Yes I know two sides of a coin, but they have both made me what I am today. I ended my career in the Army as a helicopter (Cobra) pilot. I spent my career in places we never were. If you have a military background you will understand the meaning of this, if not, surfice it to say the United States Army is never NOT at war. They are just not all declared.

I am now a chef, without a kitchen so to speak. I love italian cooking an love to see the look on peoples faces when they taste what this biker looking guy creates, always amusing. I think I have rambled on long enough.

I am looking for friendships and conversations that will help with my writing, other writers, I would be honored to hear from and relate to you. I am an open book, looking for a new life to explore and relish. The old one ended last May in the hospital. I would love to meet anyone and everyone here and chat. Just send me a request or a message and let me know you would like to be friends and get to know each other, I love meeting new people. I look forward to hearing from each of you.

Next Time

That sound. I know it’s the same sound. But am I dreaming or is it really there? I don’t really know anymore. Now what? Do I lay here and consider it last night's pizza giving my imagination something to do? Do I get up and let it happen again? I wonder, if I stay here and don’t check it out, will it start again or is that the trigger? It doesn’t matter, I can’t just lie here. I already wish...
