Those Strings that Tie

Bing Limousin

"Everyone has their own notions of the strings that connect them to whatever they want, or need to be tied to," Randy told me the other day. She said such in the context of trying to fix my truck and, how strings not only create a web in our daily lives but now come into play with pretty near every turn of her wrench. She did me a real big favor on two accounts that day. First, she found that the funny 'chunk'...




Ella Camp

I've seen you- lurking round the dark distant corners of time, the stealthy staccato of your footsteps drawing ever closer to my ear. Turning away- I am unwilling to behold the familiar features of your face. Your greed astounds me! Never sated, ever yawning jaws grinning in mockery of my fear. I know you- for I have watched you many times draw close- to breathe your foul and searing breath upon my soul. Your lingering..

A Haunting at Jamaica Inn

Jack H. Schick

Jamaica Inn, a world famous stone-block 18th century carriage-stop, is half way between Launceston and Bodmin in Cornwall. It's near the center of Bodmin Moor, about a mile west of Dozmary Pool (where Excaliber was allegedly thrown after King Arthur's death), and a few miles east of Brown Willy (the sacred, highest point in Cornwall). There has been an inn there since 1547, but the current building is from 1750. It was named by.

James Taylor

I have absolute and immense respect for living and fallen veterans. I have no doubt they were and are heroic in their fortitude and efforts. But (and this is a very big "but") we must acknowledge something lying underneath these heroes' endeavors. It is time we peeled back the war onion to fully understand. We speak of freedom and justice. We speak of heroes and courage. We are told stories by Presidents of the...


Last Order Last Ride

Hilda Cang

SATURDAY had always been an exciting day for me during my teenage years although I was uncertain whom would I be dating that evening or would my so-called dream boy happen to dial my number to ask me out for a drink or a movie or even a last-minute reminder of a party of some sort and if he didn't then I would be lonely and my Saturday would be wasted. Back then. Looking out of the window to expect a car slowly appearing in the...


Changing Our Thought Process

Susan Thom

Some of us don't believe we can change certain aspects of our thought process and behavior. However, for some who want to improve on their thinking and reacting, they are changing. For whatever reason, we can learn new ways of handling stress and anger. We can change many things concerning our personality and the way we think. Instead of believing we need to raise our voices, we can make a plan to change that course of living. We...

Bruce Horst

This week in our community group we watched a short video on the philosophies of Immanuel Kant, which can be viewed here: Kant was an early Enlightenment thinker . He was raised in a Christian household and saw positive benefits of Christianity, but he was concerned that as religion became less important in the world and was supplanted by reason, that humanity would lose sight of the...



Touring Eastern Europe on a Viking River Cruise Longship

So much to choose from There are endless selections of river cruise itineraries on the internet, so we sought the guidance of three prominent river cruise companies in Europe – Amway, Uniworld, and Viking. Viking River Cruises comes through Viking River Cruises was..
