    Despite the fact the calendar said it was Halloween eve this evening, it was really just another night to watch baseball, and I was grateful after work to be able to go enjoy dinner and visit with my parents for a while before Game 6 of the World Series kicked off. This game, like...

    Unable to climb out from under whatever was sitting on me tonight, I put on the movie “Invincible”, the Disney film about 31-year Philadelphia bartender and part-time school teacher Vince Papale who walked on to the Eagles when new head coach Dick Vermiel held an open tryout in the summer of 1976. Papale, who...

    When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. ~ I Corinthians 13:11 It’s funny that this verse has been on my mind the last week or so. I am...

    The Man of Conscience

    by  •  • Writings • 0 Comments

    The man of conscience blusters in the forum, child of the chosen ones, inspired and empowered to usher in His holy dominion upon the backs of his constituents, aided by the kindness of lobbyists and the prescience of the preachers.

    Blessed is the man who pays his debts, known and unknown, whose thoughts remain on keeping a clean slate and correct books and remaining daily in good standing and not inviting time in the prison. He lives for more than for what he hungers and submits his wants to his needs, and submits his...

    I felt this was adequate for today’s post. The message remains solid. “Good enough’s not good enough Don’t complain that you’ve got it tough With all you have your life’s a bore Can’t relax you want so much more Blind needs won’t set you free Can’t you see that Time is slipping away But...

    I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing my nephews grow up a little bit at a time in their school activities. When my sister’s eldest was in school, he was in drama for a while, and it was great to see him on stage, growing from a kid to a young adult. In the last few...

    I was grateful tonight to go out and walk with my sister on the trails in the foothills at the east end of Spain Road. By the time we were a decent distance from the access parking lot, the sunset to the west was fading, and shadows were melding with the charcoal luminescence of...

    I was able to finish David Ross’s memoir “Teammate” today, which was a nice treat on a quiet Sunday morning. After sleeping in a little while early after what felt like a long week, I put on some slippers and after I made some coffee, sat in the sunlight on the back porch and...
