This morning, crawling through the usual social media sprawl, I ran upon a single image that made me stop for a moment. Now, I don't mind admitting that I stared at it for longer than the other posts I had been looking at. My mind began to wander, and my brain was suddenly thrown into… Continue reading Whispers of the Past
Have you ever wished your life was more exciting? Have you ever looked at someone else and thought, "I wish that could be me?" Do you ever feel like you haven't done anything meaningful with your life? Of course, you have. Everybody has. Does this surprise you? The thought that everybody might be thinking the… Continue reading Your Story
It doesn't feel much like Christmas. At least, that's how I've been feeling. December seems to have rushed by in a flash. I've only managed to put up the Christmas tree last week, and now here we are. People just seem constantly tired and irritable. I can't say I'm any better. Maybe it's still COVID,… Continue reading A Silent Night
So...you're having a bad day. It happens to all of us. You're tired. You didn't sleep well. Someone yelled at you at work. You're distracted. You're depressed. You're in a funk.

All the things I'm doing, all the things I have yet to do this week, were bouncing around in my… Continue reading My Laundry List
Every night, I close my eyes and get lost in the endless wonder of my mind. I slip into a world, not unlike this one, but one very much its own. Each time is different; every world, unique. And the things I see there, such wonderous things, are difficult to explain. I've visited strange lands… Continue reading In My Dreams
What do you do when everything in your life seems to go wrong? When the whole world appears to be against you, and you feel trapped? It can be scary. It can be demoralizing. It can be paralyzing. But it's ultimately human. I've found myself reflecting a bit on the last ten years of my… Continue reading On Hold
The bigger the lie, the easier it is to believe. At least, that's what they say... I realized a while ago that nothing could be farther from the truth. Back in 2015, I had managed to get a part in a stage production of The Odd Couple. The play centered around two incredibly mismatched best friends… Continue reading The Truth About the Lie
