Theatre of the mind

Sunday morning runs set the tone for the week. I went to bed last night all stressed out and woke up brimming with anxieties. I spend a lot of time talking to myself when running, especially on distance runs. I don’t have many friends willing to wake up at 3:30 […]

Fiery Darts

This morning, my writing time was interrupted by a friend of mine who wanted to share a verse of encouragement with me. As I read her text message… Isaiah 41:10 — “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I […]

Visions

Vision… they can be delusional at times. The eyes of faith behold what isn’t there, doesn’t show you the path, doesn’t give you a heads-up that it’s going to be a trek across a desert, fighting your demons and the plans of the enemy to deter you or steal your […]

Sparks of Destiny

The old folks would tell me, that if I dream of lightening, it’s a sign of change that’s coming my way. Yesterday, as I arrived at the park for my morning run, there was this epic lightening display just over the park. I wonder what that meant? I observed it […]

My Offensive Imagination

As writers, especially writers of fiction, we create this cloak of invisibility where we hide as we create worlds that are chaotic and wild; dangerous and deadly, or utopian and beyond the sphere of any possible existence. We dabble in a realm that mirrors reality but only truly exists in […]

The Scales of Destiny

I can remember as a child a certain incident happening with a neighbor. I was about nine or ten years old. I will not go into the details, except to say that my mother stepped in, despite what I considered to be a very humiliating experience, and simply ate that […]

Snatching lightening from the sky

Before Franklin invented the lightening rod, the superstition of the day decided the best way to ward off vengeful omnipotence, was by ringing church bells that were sprinkled with water from the Jordan River. Its sounds silly… okay it sounds downright stupid. The outcry from those who sincerely believed that […]

Coming Attractions

Last Thursday I had a day out with my great nieces and nephews. They’re a rowdy bunch; fiercely independent, creative and funny. I enjoy seeing their chaos in all it’s glory. I’m not the parent; I’m the uncle that gets to wind them up and watch the tornado of youthful […]
