July 28     Clap   I know how to put my hands together, but I am unable to clap.  It’s not that my palms can’t locate each other; it’s that I cannot find the beat.  I sing; lilting rhythms rolling from my tongue.  I keep time and drum the tattoo of jingle dress dance...

July 20     Taking the Field       Humor is an illustration; a joke, an explanation.  I learn far more from the smiles than the jeers.  Laughter carries me; an action, which tears can’t always accomplish.  It is hard to live with constant descent, but wit is...

On my way to LA. Speaking tonight on the subject “With God, all things are possible” (Matt. 19:26). And, I’m wondering, “What part of “all things” did God leave out?” The television preacher unequivocally declares, “Nothing!

  September 2   PROMISE BROKEN     If promise shatters without anyone touching it, if it pops like a floating soap bubble that lost its cohesion, what do I do?  Name names?  I can’t even take fingerprints.  Sometimes dreams just end.  No fault or blame is...

  August 18   DON’T BE     Don’t be stupid. Don’t be crazy. Don’t be anything out of the ordinary. Don’t be angry. Don’t be hateful. Just don’t be that way. Don’t be sad. Don’t be mopey. Smile for the camera. And pretend for everyone. I wondered often why I felt like dying and...

  April 26   HOW THINGS SEEM     Not everyone who pushes me down is my enemy and not everyone who pulls me up is my friend.  I have been seduced by the closeness of people who used me as their shield.  When I have been held in the place of honor, the point man of life...

The past few days saw a couple of Jay-Joe humorous swipes that met with two distinct reactions: WTF and WTF. The potent acronym is, however, about duelling ideologies. 1. “WTF! How can anyone be so insensitive?” 2. “WTF! Can’t we just chill and grow up? It’s a joke.” I think I know a few mean...
