Life is a pilgrimage. It is not a tour. Be its pilgrim, its seeker of truth, its lover of precious learning. See below the surface of what is seen. Get into being. To live this sacred pilgrimage as a tourist is to miss what you are seeking. It is not a place. It is not another […]

But… “Be not deceived, God is not mocked.” It is said the truth invites, it never commands. If that is correct, and I trust that it is, then God has apparently created truth as a “take it or leave it” option. An invitation, after all, is something we can either accept or decline. But what […]
Why is there a disconnect between them? Shouldn’t the truth be sacred? Especially in a democracy? What could be more democratic than truth for everyone equally? Well, it is for everyone equally. Except in practice. Jesus had that one figured out more than two thousand years ago. “Give not that which is holy unto dogs, […]
When you and I were just learning to walk, we wobbled and fell repeatedly before we got the hang of it. Yet, we stayed with it, because something in our makeup said that walking was going to be useful and that crawling for the rest of our lives wouldn’t get us nearly as far. That […]
As a writer, I see it as a calling to bear witness to the pivotal events of our time. Few, if any, will ever match the one we are going through now. Across all facets of our lives, the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in our experience. The following is the first […]
I have been a writer for half a century. During that time, which seems to have flown faster than fifty years could, I have seen a lot, done a lot, and been a lot as well. My winnings and losses have been many, each of them a lesson, especially the losses. In 1996, I began […]

Each of us lives in a haunted house. Ghosts are there, and demons too. They have been with us from the time we moved in. We know them. They followed us from where we were before, and although they are not a constant disturbance, they tend to lurk in search of the opportune moment to […]
What are you doing? I’m waiting. Waiting for what? Waiting to be ready. Ready for what? For whatever I’m here to do. What do you think that is? When I’m ready, I’m sure that I’ll know. You could be waiting forever. These things take time. Are you waiting too? Not anymore. I got ready by […]
Have you ever had a nemesis? Someone you couldn’t get rid of, who could make you crazy with wanting to do him in? Someone like Moriarty to Sherlock Holmes? I’m happy to say that I’ve never had anyone as nasty as that in my life. Many are they who I’ve walk the other way to […]
