There's something about the city lights, staring up at them, watching the snowflakes fall beneath the shimmer, a glistening of falling hope. It makes you feel faith slipping from your fingertips, the intricate prints intertwining with lost identity. There's something about the nightly walks I take...

Excerpt from my manuscript The Bonner Prediction   That's how it goes:   General Bonner is going to allow this deflection. It is not his intent to make the young woman uncomfortable. Although retired and, indeed, on pension, he has kept abreast of the last two days in real time. He has...

I know that many believe and accept otherwise but I don't believe that time heals all wounds.  I don't believe heals wound.  They scab over, develop new tissue, but they leave traces.  Sometimes the wounds plunge so deeply into us that they incapcitate some of our resources and...

Stress (Photo credit: Alan Cleaver) My son went back to school on Tuesday, and I actually allowed my worries about getting back into the school routine to taint my last few days of summer break with unease. I wasn't walking around in a funk, but I certainly did stress some. Part of that could be...

My wife and I gingerly sank ourselves into the stiff bank lobby chairs.

"Happy anniversary, Michael," my boss said Tuesday during a team call. As I glanced at the calendar, he asked, "Thirteen years?  Is that right?" Yup. If we were married, they'd give me lace or furs for 13 years but it's a company so nothing is given. I remain astonished that I'm with the...
