By Barbara MacDonald , published on Nov 10, 2013

Last Words

By Coach Phatty, published on Jul 7, 2013

One day a girl, Sara, who was fifteen years old, came home from school in a very bad mood. She'd had a fight with her best friend that day and it hadn't turned out well at all.

"Sara!" her mom yelled. "What are you doing? You know to do your chores right when you get home! And you're late!"

"Coming, Mom!" Sara yelled, getting up and stomping towards the kitchen. "What?" she snapped as her mother gave her a stern look, annoyed.

"You'd better straighten up your attitude, young lady," her mom warned, "or you'll be grounded."

"Whatever." Sara began... (more)

The Hermit Chronicles: Cup of Conversation

By D. Sager, published on May 27, 2013

...point the way out. Addiction, seems many took that one, I see their detritus strewn about and the bones of those who scarcely made the turn on that road before they died choking on the false hope of that distant city. Violence, that sign is the one with holes shot through with blame and anger against foes seen and unseen, real and surreal. I hear echos of private wars, fought more often in that travelers head, then on the road itself. Fame, this sign is hard to see, covered with thick strands of luck and persistence. Looking far down it I see no one, I only hear crowds... (more)

Anger Management

By Ely North, published on May 1, 2013

Dear Ely,

I need anger management help. Stupid little things set me off, and I blow my top like a mailbox packed with M-80s. When people make innocent mistakes or do ordinary things that I personally find annoying, I erupt in a chaotic firestorm of abusive language, nonsensical threats, and physical intimidation. For example, yesterday a colleague of mine was humming that horrible song “MMMBop” in my vicinity. Terrible as it is, it’s a catchy tune, and it got stuck in my head. I was PISSED! I aggressively whirled on the poor little woman and screamed in her face, “Shut... (more)

Revision – Author’s friend or foe?

By Shane Joseph, published on Aug 31, 2012

...children? “Your son is a nice lad, except that he has too much sex in him and he’s too violent and he can’t romance a girl to save his soul, and he comes across as an unsympathetic person…” The list goes on. What did I do wrong in raising these kids?

After the initial Shock, Anger, Denial and Sadness routine—and these are all important for you can’t short circuit the cycle of change, and every stage needs to be respected and endured, however painful—well, as I was saying, after the SADS routine, you get down to re-writing, right? What else can you do? And this... (more)

Wisdom's Seven Pillars – Pillar #1 Humility, Pillar #2 Peace

By D. Sager, published on Mar 7, 2012

...precede peace with others. It is imperative that I find a place of calmness, centered in myself and quiet in my thoughts. From that haven I influence my relationships. Look for ways to get along with your enemy, your friend, your spouse, and your nation. Haste has no room in this pursuit. Anger will rise tempting me to act impulsively. I must resist every urge to act quickly. Calmness, confidence, and quietness will be the lighthouse that guides me through the dire straights of relationships. Taking a deep breath, calming my emotions and raging thoughts, I find the peace that is born... (more)

Walking Away From Unhealthy Love

By Randy Mitchell, published on Mar 7, 2012

Most have experienced it: staying with the same person no matter how bad and unhealthy a relationship becomes, hoping against the odds that things will eventually get better allowing love to prevail. Some look to God, wish upon a star, or seek out and counsel with every psychologist around to heal the broken seams, replace bad with good, take another drink of love potion which brought bodies together in the first place, and inflame the sparks both felt while first meeting. But realistically, sometimes the right thing to do is walk away early on before you wake up one morning, aged, staring... (more)

The Specter Of Love

By D. Sager, published on Feb 28, 2012

...

She is with my friend, he is beating her

Everything stops when I kill"

- Everything Stops, D.M.W. Sager

I take a deep breath. Jealousy. A cruel and unrelenting task master; holding me hostage, threatening my lover with violence. How quickly love turns to anger and hate. How quick that one you love can turn and violate you. Love excels at changing both itself and others. I watch as I leave all I know about me and life; all my beliefs fall to the wayside as I follow hard after what I “love”. I watch my identity crumble in my pursuit, it consumes... (more)
