Kids, Ladies, Gents & God

This afternoon I stopped at the Albertson’s crosswalk for the Oriental man pulling the grocery cart with two little bubbly kids side by side, one brown and one blonde, pushing. I heart smiled. ***** I’ve heard, “Morning little lady”.  I haven’t heard anyone coin...

Homeward Bound

Check her out? Who? Over there, in the rain coat. Check out that booty. Man, she’s cute. Yeah, but what is she doing here? Could be working for someone in the valley, but I’ve never seen her before. Look. She didn’t buy anything. Maybe she’s hiding a...

Protected American Interests

We’re all American, right? The political types gobble-gobble about protecting American interests. Are they talking about protecting all our American interests or about their selected few? The next time you hear those 3 words (protecting American interests), ask...

Where is the Love in Business?

Love The Black Eyed Peas and Justin Timberlake sing, ‘Where is the Love?’. I enjoy most of the Black Eyed Peas songs and lyrics. I work out to their fast beats at the health club. From the first time I listened to ‘Where is the Love?’ I was...

It’s not a laughing matter.

I hand the bank teller a twenty dollar bill. ‘May I get two rolls of quarters?’ ‘Sure.’ ‘Its for my dog. I put her through the washer and dryer at the laundromat.’ ‘You what . . .’ Yeah, she’s in the car....

Are we really all one?

So here is a question for you? What does ‘we’re all one‘ mean? Here’s another! Do you believe it? Guys let’s use a little imagination to put ourselves in the following scenario. So there you are biting dogs and popping corn with your men friends at your place....

in sync

We say, ‘change is inevitable’, believing the span it took to say it is rock solid. In the tiniest particle, change is evident. In stagnation there is change. Examine a mind or a pool with a microscope to prove it. Examine the bleached remains found on the Arizona...

New Story?

We’re bombarded by ‘up to the minute’ news stories every day. You’d think we would have moved on by now. You’ll understand my meaning shortly. Webster defines news as: a report of recent events. http://newsletter.lifetips.com/ says the word news was coined from the...

So, it’s 1956.

Here are a few memory joggers from back then. Elvis Presley introduced his hit single, ‘Hound Dog’. Dwight Eisenhower is president and Richard Nixon is vice president of the United States. Fidel Castro and other revolutionaries land in Cuba. The Virginia...

Memorial Grill Day

I’m in my car, tail end to the church, front end to a field, trees and sky, cloudy gray with fades of blue. It’s 12:09 pm, May 28th, 2012, Memorial Grill Monday. There will be uniformed parades, marching bands and mournful taps played at National Cemeteries. The...

It’s a Beautiful Day.

  It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it? It certainly is. Would you like to go for a cup of coffee or tea afterwards? Sorry, I’m all tied up. I have to blah, blah, and blah. Why is it so difficult to say no? Being all tied up doesn’t sound like a seed...

SEER

“Who are you?” I asked. SEER “Who are you SEER?” I am lawlessness outside the confines of your cranial domain. I am naught but multi-dimensional madness frowned upon by your scholars who appear to be sane. I am the mustiness nesting in the...

Your ass is mine.

 I – Your Ass is Mine Officer Crowley drove his unmarked State Patrol vehicle south on the North Slope Highway. His thoughts were on the note Sue had neatly folded on the dining room table, before she left for her job at Harris General Hospital. His wife was an...

Story Pieces

Peace. It floats between chaos and dispassion. It’s hovers between flowing water and rock solid. We don’t want to be so solid all we know is to resist. Nor do we want to be so fluid we’ll follow anyone anywhere. Peace is inclusive of mind, and beyond it....

Ain’t cha’ mama on the . . .

. . . pancake box? Thats one of the things we’d say as kids, when we were putting someone down. At the time Aunt Jemima was a fat, smily, handkerchief head black woman. It meant your mother was a poor, fat, black servant in some capacity. Yesterday I happened to...

We Human Beings . . .

We human beings are one of a kind. There is no other specie that relates to its own kind as we do. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about. What’s all this ballyhoo about ‘a right to life’? Whose right to life? The unborn . . .?  What...

In the Beginning . . .

Two older men chat and sip tea in the Supreme Cafeteria. Those gals forget how they got here. They call themselves Christian, yet don’t know hoot about the Bible. If they did, there’d be no issue over who has legal and religious ownership of whatever goes...

Ladies, get real!

Ladies, with all this talk about liberation and freedom, haven’t you forgotten something? Aren’t you forgetting what we spared so you could live a life in service?  Jesus, get real and show some thanks. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had...
