You Must Write It!

Back in the ‘ olden ‘ days, when we had to walk both ways to school, uphill, in 2 feet of snow, in July, life was difficult. Real tough. Not at all like what we have today, where we can get everything and anything you could ever want, delivered to your door by a guy in a brown suit ( …

Religion

Religion is tragically delicious. It is totally outrageous! This has to be one of, if not the most, curiously crazy concepts that man has ever come up with. Don’t get me wrong. You will not find someone who is more completely passionate, and intensely serious, when it comes to religion, and more specifically, spirituality. The search for spirituality, through the …

Eat Me !

Some people live to eat. A select few only eat to live. Most of us fit somewhere in between the two. Those that only eat to live, at least from my perspective, are missing out on one of the things that can add variety and excitement to our daily routines. It enhances our journey. It literally sprinkles some spice into …

Reality

What is this thing we call reality? And this is NOT a rhetorical question. No, really. I would like to know. I have been questioning this my whole life. Maybe more than one.

There can be no America without the so called ‘ Fourth Estate ‘. For those of you who are not current with exactly what is meant by the ‘ Fourth …

Truth

Truth is an absolute. Or is it? The discovery of truth has been a perpetual struggle. Not just for the individual, but for mankind, as a whole, as well. On the surface, the concept has a certain obviousness. As you spend time wrestling with the definition over time, you realize that it is one of the more complicated issues you …

Ain’t Life A Bitch?

Life sucks! …Sometimes. Just when you think you are getting it under control …. curve ball! It is like when a cat plays with a mouse. Unfortunately, me is da mouse and life is da cat. Swatting me around with ease and abandon. For life, I am but a diversion. When I try to escape I am drawn back into …

Tomorrow Never Comes

Tomorrow, unfortunately, brings us nothing. Tomorrow represents our hopes and our dreams. Our expectations, and sometimes, even our fears. But, in the end, it is only a euphemism, a shadow, a ghost. The past can never be changed. The present is never ending. But, inevitably, tomorrow never comes. Everyone talks about tomorrow incessantly. Tomorrow is the epitome of the yin …

Who Are You?

From my perspective, there are only three categories to which human beings can belong. Some are destined to be leaders. Most are to be followers. And some others are to be, well, … ‘ others ‘. Leaders can be made, but they tend to be born that way. Some search out and embrace the mantle of leadership, while some have …
