The Foggy Path

Science, it turns out, is sometimes just an illusion. I was listening to a well-respected scientist speak to that issue today, telling his listeners that in previous years, what seemed to be truth rooted in science, the irrefutable, undeniable truth of science, was in fact a fatal error based on the technology used to obtain the facts. People suffered, some died, because of that … Read More The Foggy Path

Leap, or sit still

I sit these days, frozen, waiting for events to transpire before my next move. I’m plotting that move, knowing I have only partial control over how it will unfold. I could get out there again and face the odds I faced before, with likely the same results. Nothing has changed that would make me think otherwise, which is why I’m waiting. In the meantime … Read More Leap, or sit still

Forgiveness

I had a secret, and I didn’t tell, because I was afraid you would reject me. That wasn’t fair. I should have given you a chance. Today I know it wouldn’t matter, because I know your heart is bigger than my faults. I wish I had trusted that before.

Another friend stepped in and tried to straighten things out, and in doing so, made the already shaky relationship we had that much worse.

I admit, it’s easier for me to point out this oh-so-human flaw in others, and I know a few people who routinely will stubbornly insist they are right, regardless of the possibility there is another way of looking at the situation. Moments … Read More What You See…

Better Choices, or, Better to Have Choices

Today, I’m grateful for CHOICES. One of my blogging buddies, Deb, has a daily grateful post. It’s encouraging to read all she is grateful for, and while I don’t plan to copy her idea on a daily basis, today I’m saying, loud and clear, I’m grateful for all the choices I have in my life. I can choose when I wake up in the … Read More Better Choices, or, Better to Have Choices

Help or Hindrance

While living in my last apartment, I got to know an amazing variety of people, most poor, and several with stories that oftentimes seemed unbelievable. One of these woman was Cecilia, a bright lady with a distorted view of her role in the world. She had twin daughters, Chantal and Sabra, who had just turned 18, but were both emotionally much younger. Chantal was … Read More Help or Hindrance
