I was in the middle of a deep discussion, when out of the corner of my eye, something caught my attention.  When I looked in that direction, all I saw was the black rocks at the waterline and the waves swirling around the beach.  I resumed chatting with the gentleman who was sitting beside me, […]

As the French policeman stepped aboard the bus, I knew what he was looking for. He was looking for the man who had assaulted one of the supervisors (knocking him unconscious) at the American Cemetery just above Omaha beach in Normandy. My wife, Margie, and I were on the fourth day of a World War […]

Before a recent workshop I led the sponsor of that workshop took me to a beautiful outdoor garden created by and on the grounds of a major cancer treatment center.  The garden was rich in flowers and their stunningly sweet aromas, shady trees, misting water features, sculptures, walking paths and most of all intense, almost […]

I was seven weeks into a massively complicated medical ordeal a couple of years ago.  I had an experience that I describe as a day- time nightmare.  I was lying in bed, half conscious, half-delirious with pain with a good dose of loss of hope as a chaser.  This experience came to me and I […]

I was on a 3-week trip recently and ended up having to interact with a lady who tended to drive me nuts.  She was loud, discourteous, self-centered, interrupted people, acted entitled, and half a dozen other irritating behaviors.  After a while, her mere presence, irritated me.  I have also been one to judge negatively and […]

I was shocked when a friend of mine in an amazing matter-of fact tone, told me that she had recently been assaulted by three men as she was getting out of her car one evening after work. At one point, one of the men pulled out a gun and pointed it at her. She saw […]

Even for me, I was early. The joke among those who know me is that there are the standard time zones, and then there is the “Ted-Time” zone, which means early…… German heritage early, I guess. I always try, for example, to be at the airport at least two hours before my flight. On this […]

Wow, the Windy City was living up to its reputation. 20-25 mile per hour gusty winds showed up as ordered for “Community Kite Day”, sponsored by the local Department of Parks and Recreation. However, the warmth that was imagined for this didn’t make an appearance. 33 + degrees, snow spitting periodically, the sun playing peek-a-boo […]

I was talking to an acquaintance the other day and she was sharing her list of current challenges, which were substantial.  She’d lost her job (due to the company she worked for suddenly and without warning closing) and had been refused unemployment as a result of a number of complications.  As a result she was […]

The United States Congress – Washington Politics – Politicians -The people who run election campaigns – the government. It might be just about the crowd I hang out with, but it seems like it would be tough these days to find anyone who has much respect for any of the above. Unless, of course, they […]
