It’s another one of those times where it feels like life is somehow slipping through my fingers and I cannot begin to grasp it. Reminded, yet again, of how quickly things can happen and change in just a short period of time. Tender love turns to harsh loathing. Tears of laughter flow freely as reminders […]

“I often find myself drifting back into that world I can no longer find. Shutting out today’s invading clamor, I return to the fields of crickets along the railroad tracks of my youth. The great trains enter and leave as if on stage, storming through their roles and departing. Every train has its own character, […]

The greatest tragedy is not that the mighty have fallen, but that there rise no others to take their place. That thought struck me as I sat down this morning, thinking of the current state of our generation, religion, and sad excuse of the pursuit we claim to have for love. In Revelation, we are […]

This world seems to exist at the mercy of an unseen “they”. “They” say what is good for you, bad for you, heart healthy, cholesterol busting, sex enhancing, personality developing, and other aspects of life that never seem to agree with each other. One day, they say coffee is good for you. The next, coffee […]
