Great spiritual leaders keep saying this.  Over and over they say it.  In writings they say it, and in spoken words.  They say it succinctly sometimes and other times it is more verbose. But every time it is the same.

And every time we want to resist it.

How often do you find yourself holding regret....twisting and turning it in your hands so that you can see your mistakes and make your judgments from every angle?  Are you holding something from yesterday, last week, years ago?  Do you know that it is time to let it...

A Sunday story, as told to me by others.

I hear his car pulling into the garage.  Over the drum of the twins arguing in the living room and the crying of Nathan on my hip, I hear his car pulling into the garage.

But I do not turn around. 

Instead, I keep stirring the rice...

A Sunday Story.

”What.  The.  Fuck,” my mother screams from downstairs. “What the ever-loving fuck!”  

I hear her from my bedroom, the room I grew up in and left twelve years ago when I got married, when I was twenty-two.

She screams again.  She is so mad.  She...

It's been a while since I had a Sunday Story.  This one came just in time for Christmas, and though it is not very merry, I hope yours will be.

Another Sunday Story, but on Monday, because for some reason it was just so hard to put this one together.  And even now, it isn't really done. There are all sorts of words missing.  You'll have to read between the lines and use your own stories to complete this one....

Another Sunday Story. 

”You’re a fucking hypocrite Mom. You know that?”

Finally she manages...

Another Sunday Story, in an interview format.


Can you start by telling us something about your childhood that’s sad?


Hmmm.  What’s sad about my childhood?  I guess it's that I was always afraid.


Afraid?  How?


Things were really uncertain.

Another Sunday Story.....on a Saturday.

This was supposed to be posted last week, but i just couldn't.  Long story.  Not this one. THAT one.

My car is on the side of the road.  It is in the grass of a pristine suburban Cape Cod.  The engine is still running, the rad...
