The Art of Chess: Searching for Josh, Boris and Bobby

Jack H. Schick

When I was a kid, my mom (like most moms) thought I was smart. Maybe I was, as far as IQ goes, but over my lifetime I've been pretty consistent at acting like an idiot and doing stupid things. 'Smart' is a relative term and a characteristic that's hard to accurately assess. To encourage my infrequently demonstrated 'smartness,' my mom bought me a chess set. It was a cheap one with standard shaped pieces that...

All Lives Are Sacred Under The Eyes Of The Great Spirit

Jim Fargiano

Jim Fargiano July 8, 2016 When the worst of human behavior is exhibited, it is the perfect time for you to redouble your own efforts to exhibit the innate love and bond you have with God and the angels who want to make life safe. This is something that clearly does not, nor should ever be thought of in terms of who is what skin color, what ethnicity and so forth. All lives are sacred under the eyes of the Great Spirit, as they...



Life Is Like A Millionaire

"MONEY often costs so much." - Ralph Waldo Emerson. In order to provide a better family life for his wife after their second baby was born, James decided to work harder and smarter so that they could live a happier life.

Wake Up Everybody, Again, or Still

Steve Kovacs

Memory lane. 1975. 'Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' featuring Teddy Pendergrass were on top of the soul music charts with several songs, including ‘Wake Up Everybody’.

My Weekend Writing Experiment - Making the World a Better Place

Bruce Horst

Writers write, right? These days I don’t write very much under my real name as being objectionable can get you shot in some parts. Most evenings and weekends you’ll find me on message boards and comment sections arguing my positions using pseudonyms. Ozzy, Tom Paine and Dataguy are my favorites. The pay isn’t good (zilch!) but it is rewarding to be able to convince someone to recognize a new point of view when...


The "Our World Around Us" Rhyme!

Robin Brown

For the fear and pain, now... but a scar. Amongst us now... and right before our eyes and not too far mistaken... as this "one deep breath" has now been taken.

Susan Thom

Being human came with a mind that can beneficially be changed to think in the best, most altruistic way. So much negativity and arguing cannot live up to the life we all want to peace. How can we work on our thoughts and reactions to others? First, we must evaluate what we will drop from our thinking and responding. Does life’s situations overwhelm us at our most vulnerable times? If something is bothering us, we need.
