Driving Cap

There are people, a handful in a lifetime, that are so pure in their intention it actually takes your breath away. People that see where they are needed most, regardless of title or accolade. People with the excitement of youth tempered by the patience of age.  They are the ones we turn to when things…

Rough Water

I wasn’t going to write about this, but my question needs to be asked, so here goes… I’m confused about the George Zimmerman verdict.  To my knowledge, this man was investigated the night of and following the tragic incident.  Police made the determination, after reviewing the facts, that Zimmerman was overzealous, didn’t follow the directions…

I don’t like war. I’m smart enough to know violence appears necessary these days, but I don’t have to like it. It would be a wonderful thing if things could be worked out some other way, but I’m past 40 and…I’m just not that naive anymore. I may have to accept war for now, but…

Basic Black

While I tend to be a little more Sally than Harry, I thought about death today. I was driving home, the sun was rising…oooh, that sounds like a good movie scene.  Anyway, I was driving and there was a great song on my iPod. The sunrise was beautiful and I had one of those moments…

I watch Dexter. I’m just starting Season 3 and I love it.  I don’t watch it on TV because I hate TV, remember? I buy the seasons and then try to cut myself off so I don’t sit and watch the whole damn thing straight through. Dexter must be the reason I haven’t finished writing my…
