The Foundation

A moment in time came back to my soul today and for the first time in a long time, I remembered my place in life and it isn’t gaslighting the other side or endless debates on the way others should see life, but my eternal love of the place this blog is named. She came…

Unspeakable

I read a report today that said that Las Vegas Schools were going to return to class due to the high level of suicide amongtst children. I was saddend to hear that many under the age of ten were committing this hopeless act. I said I would not commit on political beliefs and while that…

Catch-22

My best writing has always come in places of complete calm and reflection. Christmas this year was the best I have had, perhaps ever. It was full of laughter and good company and perhaps a bit of wine. I lived a year of life and not misery and have found myself while not yet the…

A Merry Little Christmas

In 1944 during some of the darkest days of WWII a musical arrived called Meet Me in St. Louis, that took place in the antebellum south of the Civil War. Judy Garland at the time of the film was at the height of her power and delivered in my opinion, her finest performance. The story…

Defiance

The dust has settled long ago but the scars remain. The gift God gave me has been the greatest blessing of my life and I don’t believe a greater gift can be given. I was born by his grace to work with children and I find it to be the only thing I am very…

Fear

I don’t fear death but a cage without a key. Prolonged life for the sake of more years is not a life but a meaningless void. I would rather live one year and live it to its fullest than live a hundred and never step outside and take a leap. Nothing of great consequence has…

That Place

I’ve always struggled with the reality that life is and will be hard. Confusion washes over me as I reflect on the days that use to be. I’ve never experienced pain that landed me in a hospital but I think I might take that over the overwhelming happiness and sorrow of a life that is…
