Such the Fool

Onlookers in confusion and alarm angrily declare that the door I sit by is closed, locked, and sealed shut so tightly with super glue and cement that only fools would stay and waste their time prying it open.

Fight or Flight? Freeze.

Why don’t I share this story?  Everyone would ask why I didn’t do anything.  And how could I explain that as he struck the back of my head, my vocal cords forgot how to speak because my lungs forgot to breathe, and since my lungs forgot to breathe, my brain got confused, and when my...

Our life was a puzzle, slowly piecing its way into a beautiful picture —but good heavens!—you flipped the damn table, and now all the pieces are scattered on the floor! Why would you cause this mess for us? - You’re beckoning me to help you piece our life together… using words like teamwork and compassion.... Continue Reading →
