Truth has rushed to meet you (in stealth mode; but still!)

I sat in my car outside the university fitness center I belong to after completing another lonely ride to nowhere on a stationary bike. Mindlessly perusing magazines like People and US reporting on matters of dire importance such as reader polls revealing which celebrity wore which designer outfit best. Even as my iphone continued to […]

See you in September

“Just put on the God-damn glasses,” I said. “I mean, who do you think you are, anyway? Icarus? A two-year old? The President of the United States?” My inner professor tossed back his head and laughed. “We’ve talked about this,” he said. But I was just trying to protect him, for God’s sake, and let’s […]

What you teach is teaching you

“Long time no see with,” my inner professor said, as I slunk into his office and slid into my seat facing his desk. I really shouldn’t have taught him that line. But he was right, as always. It had been a long time; months in fact. It’s not that I hadn’t wanted to visit; just […]

What is sin?

(Happy New Year! Here’s another excerpt from my most recent collection of essays, Forgiveness: The Key to Happiness, about learning to live a forgiving and forgiven life and truly smile.) What is sin? I lifted my head from the cradle of my folded arms resting on his desk, flexed my fingers stinging with pins and […]

Truth or Cake?

 (Here’s an excerpt from my latest essay collection Forgiveness: The Key to Happiness  on learning to live a truly forgiving life and smile: ) I have stored in my bodily memory an image from early childhood of a perfect autumn Sunday afternoon. Burnished maple leaves still wanton on their branches waving in a spicy breeze, […]

This Holy Child remains with you

The ringing that roused me from a rare, deep sleep that early Sunday morning seemed so far away with my earplugs in and the white-noise thrum of the air conditioner. I stumbled out of bed, disoriented, moving blindly in the darkness toward the dresser against the wall where I kept our mobile landline to prevent […]

We go toward love still hating it

In my sleeping dream I am visiting my daughter in Seattle, although the city looks nothing like the real thing. Instead of a 19-century logging port today buzzing with construction fueled by a burgeoning high-tech industry, it is very old, its ancient buildings furry with moss, its cobblestone streets, cold, slick, and largely deserted. I […]
