First Night In Jail (MLS598-5.4)

In college, I was still in the army reserves- so one weekend a month was totally destroyed for me hanging out with a bunch of older guys playing cards in camo. Occasionally we’d need to wash Humvees or crank up the radios to be sure they were working, but I was a radio guy in a medical …

First Time Buzz (MLS 598 5.4)

I was at a party after a conference where I was helping promote a new program for schools like mine. There were lots of us, living our lives out of our individual high schools, but we had come together with this single mission in mind- to spark creativity for high school kids. We had worked at this school …

Centered Set VS Bounded set (MLS 598-5.1)

This topic fascinates me- and has for some time. My favorite flavor in life is redemption, and that’s a flavor that can only be tasted after the bitterness of “sin.” I use the word as originally intended by those that penned the bible- an archer’s term that simply meant to “miss the mark.” We have brought …

Socrates, Jesus, and Bonhoffer (MLS598-5.2)

My fave criminal? Super difficult for me because I find it hard to ever champion someone who unfair to get themselves ahead at the expense of others…  but NOT when someone stands up to unfair laws or systems to help others. Those people are my heroes. When an unjust system is running the show- the only option is …

Real Threads and False Threats (MLS 598.4.1)

I’m pretty late getting to the films this week as I was traveling- and it seems many of us have had the same feelings about the films. I’m pretty hooked on The Keepers and plan on finishing the series- and as one who has been trying to develop a  meditation practice (and also wrestling with my relationship with the church/religion of …

F*ck You- a Prayer (MLS 598.4.4)

It was about three or four weeks after catching her in the act. I had been through the typical gaslighting phase for a couple months, but there was no way she could talk herself out of this one, no matter how much my mind wanted to explain it away. I couldn’t sleep in the bed we once shared anymore- even seeing the …

Measuring it wrong

We’ve been measuring failure wrong. It has very little to do with how much you have or don’t have. It has very little to do with how much you’ve done or still hope to do. It certainly has nothing to do with the car you drive or the name sewn on the ass of your jeans . It can’t be weighed …

Struck (MLS 598.4.2)

I had never seen the leaves. I’d heard of how amazing and beautiful they were so I hopped in a car with 2 friends from work and on a whim, decided to drive to North Carolina and see the leaves change. As we were getting into the mountains, I remember seeing some of the trees …

Overwrought (MLS 598.1.3)

He was brushing his teeth when he caught my eye in the mirror. “What’s up? Looks like you’re overthinking shit again.” “Yeah. I had to watch this movie for class about some girl who lied about being a survivor from 9/11. It seemed she made up this terrible life narrative just to get some attention and …

Liar Liar (MLS 598.1.2)

Sadness. That’s all I felt for this woman (from “The Woman Who Wasn’t There“) that was so unhappy with her own life that she manufactured a horribly tragic one so she could be pitied as a victim. Her “dream life” was a really sad one. She did this while nudging real victims out of the way so …
