Epitaph

I don’t plan on rotting in the ground when I die.  No, too little land left for my 6 feet.  My decision was cemented when 100 year old bodies floated down the Missouri during the 1993 floods.  I don’t want parts of me breaking off in a river decades from now to be eaten by river […]

“Falling” in Love

The world has written about love for so many centuries that the subject is dried out, dehydrated into a raison. When I read most romantic tales I see infatuation, not love.  The idea of “Falling into Love” is really a deceptive misrepresentation of infatuation and lust.  For these feelings are a gripping passion, an overwhelming feast of feeling, a physical crash dive […]

The Tide of Belief

B-E-L-I-E-F Six letters that make the world go round.  After all, the framework of your day revolves around what you believe.  Your car is sound, your food is free of disease, your spouse loves you, your boss will pay you.  Disbelief yields indecision and paranoia.  Therefore, belief is necessary in order for a society to progress.
