  • My Heart Aches

    My heart aches. It seems impossible but these events continue to happen. Day after day the news is filled with stories of needless violence and the death of innocents. Society gasps and offers a moment of silence but since it does not affect them directly, they go on with their life after offering encouraging words. […]

  • For Granted

    We spend so much time of our lives accepting the little things. At times, we offer our appreciation in passing but not really paying attention to them or really acknowledging the sum of the little things. When forced to accept that the little things are gone, we realize our mistakes. Take the time, to say […]

  • On letting go

    It is not you that I hate. It is the part of me that will not let you go that I hate. It does not take much to bring my mind to you. As one would believe, it is always the good times that I remember. It is always the attraction, the pleasure, the fun. […]

  • Family and love

    With the passing of my uncle this week, I thought many thoughts about family and love. To me, family is love. It is unconditional and a constant. They will always be your family, that does not mean you love every action they take. Love and family can be violative. It is this volatility that had […]

  • Like a Song

    Like a whisper on the wind of a dark night, you come to me unbidden. You tickle the edges of my mind. The fantasy and memory of you flutters on the wind and sounds the chimes in my mind. What you were and what you meant comes back in an instant. I miss you and […]

  • Father’s Day

    If there’s a day I would break, it was that day. The day my phone rang at 0419 and I knew. I got up and started my day in denial. I told the assistant principal I may have to leave and why, knowing that I was leaving but unwilling to admit the truth of it. […]

  • Struggling

    https://youtu.be/2M0LvrMoAl0 Life has been tough lately. I’m thinking about those I love and struggling through my own emotions. It is at times like this that I turn to music. When I heard my grandma had passed at 100+ this was the song I thought of immediately because I knew the title expressed her feelings. I […]

  • A toast

    Today would be the 62nd anniversary of my parents’ wedding. It is difficult to believe that dad died 18 years ago and dates like today still influence me. I know the remedy lies in concentrating on the good times and the lessons I learned. The difficult lies in not hurting for my mom. He was her […]

  • Show up

    When overwhelmed is where we are the answer is simple, show up. You show up and do what you can do and you turn to that group of people that show up. They usually are already there.

  • Closer to the end

    Each second, we get closer to the end than the beginning. It is up to us to live as fully as we can. Over the weekend, I missed my father. He died closer to 20 years ago than not. Ironically, I can remember the time the phone call came to advise me that he was […]
