Disintegration
Afternoons will be measured out measured out, measured with  coffee spoons and T.S. Eliot - Afternoons and Coffeespoons" by Crash Test Dummies These were the words that poured into my ears on that  rainy Saturday morning. I was running my fifty-three year o...

That's Really Super, Supergirl

Eleven
I know. You're all just being polite. You don't know when to jump up and shout, "Hey. You forgot to mention your eleventh anniversary." Well, fret no further, since that time has already passed and to be quite honest I didn't even notice myself. This is mos...

Trash And Treasure
The mess stretched for more than a block. It looked as if the entire contents of a high school sophomore's locker had exploded across the street and down the sidewalk. I came across this littrocity in the second mile of my run. I wasn't in my neighborhood p...

Two Tickets To Paradise
It's prom season. If you're in high school, that means it is time to scrape together all that cash you've been saving from the extra shifts you've been working at the Kwik-E-Mart to pay for your tux. Or your dress. Or your Parisian Night Suit . And you're l...

From The Hip
We are currently living in a world that expresses wonder and, for some, appreciation, for those who "say what's on their minds." No matter how offensive or off-putting, we seem to be finding a new fascination with that whole Free Speech thing. Pointing fing...

Broken
And still it makes me wonder: why aren't we getting the attention we deserve? Inside these doors are rooms full of knowledge and intrigue, full of ideas and energy and potential. Why aren't we better protected? I'm talking about the school where I work. Las...

Taking The Call
The phone rang just after ten thirty that night. We were awake, watching television. Caller ID told us that it was our son. Since we had been making and receiving calls from our son most of the day, primarily to share in his first long-distance birthday, we...

Bathroom Law
The thing that I remember most were the shrieks coming from the stall: "Get out! Get out, David! Get out!" That is how I learned about bathroom time is a private time. To be clear: Jenny was absolutely correct to be shocked and upset at me. She was five and...

All Those Years Ago
Nineteen years ago, I was still getting used to the "summer weather pattern" of the Bay Area. Morning fog giving way to bright sunshine in the afternoon was still kind of a mystery to me back then. The rhythms of my life were about to take an even greater s...
