The Day My Dad Stole a Christmas Tree

They razed it to widen the factory's driveway. I immediately thought: "They've paved paradise,put up a parking lot"; but, there've been times when big trucks making deliveries there delayed me. They totally blocked the...

Each Ending Starts A New Beginning

Susan Thom

Change is very difficult for many of us to deal with and accept. Our thinking process changes, our routines change, and our relationships are in constant motion. Change is inevitable every second of the day. People change, weather changes, thoughts change, and actions change.

Eve Who Art Thou?

Ella Camp

There have been stories throughout time that have wanted to be told; and yet, the intolerant temper of the times did urge the storyteller to the couching safety of the metaphor, parable and fairy tale; which we are now left to decipher through the glass darkly. In this certain time and place- a place as yet unknown to earthly human senses; in an instant before time was marked on this miniscule uncharted world in the furthest reaches.

Do You Believe in Easy?

Jeanna Gabellini

Over the years, I've had many clients who said, "I always get what I want, but it never seems easy." All struggle is birthed in your mind . You may think you just had bad luck or random acts of technical glitches, but it all comes down to what you believe. There is nothing that can't be traced back to what you were thinking. Struggle can show up in many ways ... Financial loss or roller coaster rides ...

Kurt Krueger, a Fight, Reflections and Hope

Steve Kovacs

When I was about 13 in the middle of my miss-spent youth I hung out at a pool hall. I was in junior high at the time when The Eastgate Coliseum was in its full glory. The huge entertainment complex housed a large bowling alley, a fantastic game room and a huge pool hall. It was a hop, skip and jump away from our school so some of us made it there every day after classes. Some of the kids played games and some hung out in the pool hall..

NAFTA on Steroids and in Stealth Mode

Marlin Woosley

Dear Esteemed POTUS and Congress of the United States of America: The Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement, for what I can find out about it, is of great concern to me. Much of that concern comes from the secrecy surrounding the agreement. It seems that lobbyists for wealthy corporations are in the know but the American people are being kept in the dark. That is simply not the way that a democratic republic should work. The..
