WORRY

Worry is to feel or express great care and anxiety, to fret. To worry is to have something constantly on the mind and agonizing over it. It can give a sick feeling. It can also be expressed through speech and action. The mind is agitated and there are complaints, there is impatience and irritability. In other words, there is no peace.

Sometimes worry can consume hours, days even weeks out of your life. You try to throw it off, but it clings like static. It clings like a tick on an unsuspecting animal.

Then “What If” enters. When “What If” enters, peace leaves.... Read More

Whereas most individuals are familiar with the term "barebacking", only a select, special few are familiar with the new word for an old activity, known as "saddlebacking". What pray tell is it? Well, "saddlebacking" is the phenomenon of pimple faced Christian teens engaging in unprotected anal sex in order to protect their virginities. (http://www.sadlebackin...) For example: After attending the Celibacy Ball, at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, Shirley and Stan saddlebacked like rabbits to protect their virginity. "Hmm," you may be thinking. "This is just a fancy way of saying sodomy. In what... Read More

Some things are just never as good as they promise to be. For example: sequels to previously good summer blockbusters. The movie version of best selling novels. Folksy presidents from Texas who struggle with English. FEMA after a flood in the French Quarter. The grass on the other side.When I was a kid my folks got it in their minds that moving us out of the burbs and onto a ranch in the country would be a wholesome way to raise up their brood. They purchased a three acre ranch fully furnished with props. It came with a pony named Trigger, a coop full of hens and one rooster, a pond with ducks... Read More

I just started my second personal project. It’s an idea that I thought about doing years ago, of course, and I am just now getting around to it. While I’ve been working on it for the past 2 weeks and feel very passionate about it, I’ve also come across many mental roadblocks. I start it, I pause, then I pause some more until eventually I realized I am just now procrastinating. In my heady way, I’ve been trying to understand why I keep putting this project off. I started to read blogs about why other writers do this. In doing so I have finally come to a point in seeing how procrastination can... Read More

My Dad liked to boast that Mark Twain had said he never let schooling get in the way of his education. Dad worked at the casinos. When Mom got pregnant they married and I guess I just about killed Mom in my birth, as she could have no more kids after me. Dad used that as an excuse to sleep around, getting a girl pregnant, divorcing Mom, remarrying and leaving us on our own. Nevada didn’t much care then about enforcing child support so Mom went to work in the casinos.

I didn’t finish high school. People around me made schooling out to be sissy stuff. So, I’m 13 working weekends... Read More

I apologize to the man driving along side me informing me of my rudeness with such passion, I apologize to the woman at Chevron informing me of how inconsiderate I am, I apologize to the wonderful woman in line behind me at Ralph’s informing me of my status in this world, I sincerely apologize for my blatant inconsideration of your needs, please let me explain myself, the most beautiful angel I ever knew went home today.

My friend Christina was young, beautiful, a heart filled with love and compassion for those around her. Always putting the needs of others ahead of her own. She never... Read More

Razor blade in my hand. Ready to make the cut. I stare into the mirror at a vacant face. I am looking at a man ready to die…

Oh, how I wish this were true! For then it would make this article so much more dramatic. But alas, it is not. There is no razor blade and I am certainly not ready to die. Ahhh! I can’t believe I did it again. I’m a fraud. A liar! When will this continuous cycle of saying things that aren’t true end?

Here’s the story: I started using the resources of the information superhighway quite some time ago. Probably not too long after Al Gore invented... Read More
