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 »

BLEEDING ON ONE’S NOTEBOOK: “IT HURTS.”

Waiting on God is not for weanies. No personal, private details.  Most are just curious.

They were moving … Continue reading »

QTMs for 1/13/16: EVERYBODY’S A CRITIC

“It was as if each person was a priest, and they were all healing one another. The God-talk was honest and experience-based, not “belief”-based. There was no hesitancy for each person to describe their history of failure and recovery–or death and resurrection, if you prefer Christian vocabulary. . . .

Bookwork: WHAT DO PEOPLE WHO CAN’T EAT EAT?

“So what did you eat during those two years you had those TPN catheters stuck down in your chest?” “Whatever sounded good and I could keep down.” “So what sounded good?” “Nothing.” When I’m dehydrated, which is a common side effect of short bowel syndrome, water doesn’t even taste good.  Ironic, no?  Right at a time … Continue reading »
