“It is what it isn’t.” When your spirit speaks up in a matter-of-fact, no-nonsense tone reminiscent of your mom?  You know–Motherus Prime?  You listen.  Closely. To listen means to shut it.  I did.  Then I repeated it back. “It is what it isn’t?”  My spirit’s nod and baleful stare reminded me of a high school typing … Continue reading »

Stubborn anything is rarely good, and settling for “good enough” isn’t much better. I sat in SportClips, being trimmed up by a new stylist.  In a daily environment inundated with data and information, I’m comfortable with silence.  Hairdressers are not. “That’s great cologne.”  Possible responses:  “That’s blatantly sexist”, currently popular, if vapid.  “Thanks, but I’m … Continue reading »

An Exerpt From TIME TRIALS – 9/2/17

Ever notice the false promises given to terminal patients? No one intends for them to be, but they are. They’re offered with professional smiles, in counterfeit light-hearted bravado by people wearing Happy Face masks.  They know their promise is hollow.  That agreement will never be honored.  After all, the patient is dying. I’m dying.  All of … Continue reading »
