I was reading again this morning the story of Nicodemus. You remember it, don’t you? The fellow who came to Jesus at night, full of affection for Jesus, but full of questions and confusion, too. Why at night? Why did he come at night instead of during the daylight hours? “Because he was a secret...

What is it with my dreams recently?  They're so many, in 3D, with amazing clarity and continuing.  Most are interesting - to me, the dreamer, of course (I don't know what the rest of you think about them) - and entertaining but the last one last night was disturbing. The last one last...

The “recent searches” section of my website indicates that someone is interested in memory loss.  A large number of survivors of child sexual abuse have either no memories or else the ones they have are obscured by fear and confusion. I have heard more than one victim, including me, say that...

I'll admit to a bit of puzzlement here: when Mr. Tarantino and Mr. Foxx do "it," the end-product is artistic and bold; but for Mr. Twain's usage, the end-product requires sanitized re-writes and a perennial campaign to put "Huck Finn" on the banned-book list? Clarification of the New Rules...

This is a work related rant, so I can respect your wishes not to read it. I mean, it's all about my company and the frustrating structure and policies they create.   To begin, I want to invite you to play some football.  You're on a team, on the field.  Your team has the ball.  ...

  May 2   THE MEAL     Home cooking is the key.  I want to order in, have my life delivered to the door.  The takeout menus entice me.  From three courses on china to burgers handed through sliding windows, it all sounds good and I request all for take home....
