So, I've noticed recently that I've been dodging the "How are you?" question.  Usually that is easily done, as it is asked in passing. You know, like catching someone just as they are entering or exiting the bathroom: "How are you?"  "... READ MORE

I had the privilege yesterday to sit with a friend at the hospital in the “Surgery Waiting Room.”  Okay, that is holy ground if ever there is any.  The emotions in the place are thick.  The memories for me in the place are rampant.  Raw...

It’s 9:30pm and the horizon is glowing.  From my deck I can see spots of red where homes are burning.  I pray.
