A New Year’s resolution will be a goal that many will latch on to in the coming days. Perhaps you will lose the extra pounds, be a better person in some way, save money, et cetera. Although I find it a bit silly to wait until a certain date on a calendar to make a personal change, people are people. I am–right now–going to promise … Continue reading Not This Year!
It was nice spending some time with the family tonight. Christmas has now come and gone, but the headlines just read had an impactful message that I am still trying to wrap my head around. Another bomb in Nashville, TN, on Christmas Day, was the story. Trump playing golf, avoiding the necessities, as usual. Covid-19 hospital workers sacrificing their time away from families in order … Continue reading Bent
I don’t read what most have to say. Yesterday was a beautiful morning. There is a certain long stretch of road surrounded by the landscape of trees that I especially enjoy in the early morning, as the sun’s rays display nicely there. I have been taking the road for the last few months on my commute to work. It’s a peaceful beginning to the inevitable … Continue reading The Calamities In You

I’ve been on a WWII documentary kick for several years now, and I can honestly say that I’ve always been intrigued by the reality of this particular war, as well as the unbelievable calamity our men, women and children … Continue reading Willing To Die
It took quite a few years to accept the truth about a few aspects of myself. Bitterness is something that I am more familiar with than many. It is truly a part of me. Since, unfortunately, I have carried this unwanted trait around for so long, it has become a battle of which I constantly have to manage. For many, many years, I did not … Continue reading The Damaging Truth
Maybe you have seen it in a movie or experienced it? A very loud explosion erupts and deafens an individual. There is nothing but a nearly silent, high-pitched ringing that drowns out the continuing war. Bombs explode. Gunfire is blazing past, but the individual is only able to hear the hum. Temporarily unreceptive to what could be heard, and forced to only rely on the … Continue reading Silencing The War
