I decided that I live with no regrets and have accepted the outcome of my decisions. I let it go and I set myself free. Free to live again, love again, smell the rain, nourish my soul…. Let people in. For I know that every dark night turns into day. I am free to write my story for it is me who holds the pen. For It is the journey and not the destination that is the story. For that, I am thankful.Read More
Today I feel unconquered. Like every Seminole should every day. But today I learned a lot about tragedy, what it does to people, what it makes you feel. I have never lost a very close loved one, so I didn't know what tragedy felt like. Today I experienced an emotion that is unlike any other. I locked eyes with random strangers while passing by and silently exchanged glances that showed our respect and remorse. This tragedy that occurred today is unfortunate, to say the least. But my eyes and heart have been opened.Read More

Nothing can change what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, nor bring back the loved ones, family and friends who were lost then or during the war that followed. All we can do is continue to honor their memory, to never forget and to keep fighting for something more -- a better world so this never happens again. We will never be able to wipe out all of the "bad guys" in this world, but that doesn't mean we should ever stop trying.Read More

And oh does she hug me so
when I'm lonely.
How she hears my cries no one else hears.
She accepts me...the me no one knows.
She has seen me at my worse and seldom at my best.
Yet, never turned her back.
And has yet to close a door on me.
We are inherently flawed as human beings. I work outwardly to acknowledge and work on my shortcomings. The greatest failure of our lives will be that we could not understand each other more, be more gentle with the fragility of emotion.Read More

"Hey, Tank," I said quietly. The dog's head whipped up, his ears cocked and his eyes bright. "C'mere boy."He was instantly on his feet, his nails clicking on the hardwood floor. He sat in front of me, his head tilted, searching for the name he hadn't heard in months. "Tank," I whispered. ...It's me now, Tank, just you and me. Your old pal gave you to me." Tank reached up and licked my cheek. "So whatdaya say we play some ball?"Read More
Some people come into our lives through strange coincidences. Their presence seems mysterious, but they are here for a reason. We don't always understand where they come from or why they manifest in our life. Usually they are compassionate individuals who we have attracted by something we have said or done.Read More
Impatiently, I sat there waiting while Mike was still groggy from his procedure. As I turned to see the doctor approaching the room, I knew something was wrong. He began to talk but I am not really sure I heard a word he said...Read More
