    A Lustful Life Is A Life Lacking Luster

    I want to focus on an aspect of life that is paralyzed by addiction–that is, a subtle aspect of joy. It’s not that an addict can NEVER find joy. There are moments. But, I’ve found something returning to my life that I didn’t even realize had gone. The best way I can...

    Second Childhood

    Having my children has allowed me to do the things I never got to do as a child and has taught me so much about how to play, have fun, and learn about the world over again through the eyes of a child.

    "i Stood Bewitched..."

    When I was young, probably far younger than you'd expect, I was assigned to read an excerpt from the auto-biography of Mark Twain "Life on the Mississippi" as part of my English class. That story gave me a deep-seated sense of worry. You can read it yourself if you like it...
