Boo-Hoo

Crying is one of my favorite emotions. I find it to be at once cathartic and cleansing. Laughing until you cry is the best. I’m trying to think of the last time I laughed so hard I cried, but it has been awhile. It seems like when I was a young man I did itContinue reading “Boo-Hoo”

Coming Back Strong

It has been raining for two straight days, but today it cleared up beautifully. It sounds easy enough to come back strong after suffering a loss doesn’t it? Try harder. Don’t give up. Don’t include me in the conversation. I have an unhealthy aversion to losing. I honestly don’t know where I picked up thisContinue reading “Coming Back Strong”

I have fond memories of Ventura,Continue reading “Road Trip”

Why So Angry?

I don’t get it. What possible good does it do? It leads to hypertension and other ill effects to the body and central nervous system. It shortens life spans. It divides families, cities, states, and as recent events have illustrated; it divides nations. I write about anger and other emotions listed under the 26 lettersContinue reading “Why So Angry?”
