  • On occasion, I find myself wishing I could turn back the clock.
    Actually, turning back the clock is not what I want to do.
    I want to roll back the calendar until we reach the mid-1950s.
    Ah, those were the days. I was a kid and was not held responsible for adult matters.

    Violence seems to be on the rise—though I sometimes wonder if the reporting of violence is what is on the rise.
    A reported event at a Louisville mall changes our shopping habits.
    The manner in which someone is dressed raises concerns we didn’t feel a few years ago.
    Shooters shoot and bombs explode, leaving us wondering what and who comes next.
    How are we to respond?

  • One of the blessings I’ve been privileged to have is that of owning, or being owned by, pets. Donna and I have had three—one at a time. All have passed from us but remain in our hearts. Here is the story of one of them.
