Desirous Doubter

For over five decades I’ve prayed religiously— I’ve prayed for the restoration of the atrophied muscles in my right leg, injured in a skill saw injury at the age of eighteen. The nerve was severed, and despite a surgical and rehabilitative process, I currently contend with the consternation of a foot-drop condition. My preference for... Continue Reading →

Dining Delight!

My wife and I have nearly completed the eleven seasons of the Netflix offered “Frasier” sitcom that spanned from 1993 to 2004. I never tire of viewing the series!

Still, inside, my deep desire,       ... Continue Reading →

It is revealing that admiration of features (appearance, gifts, talents or performance) merely indicates an acknowledgment and appreciation of them, not a love for that person. Facets are the authentic expression of one’s person (humor, empathy, loyalty, and temperament).... Continue Reading →
