through the lackluster hospital corridors that we ...

The View Through a Different Lens
 It was a cool Sunday morning in mid-March. The sun
deceptively shone, its rays seen but not felt by its onlookers. Any warmth

Mosaic
  A week or so later I got word of a church that held a group

Three Steps Backward
  These past few weeks have felt like one long exhaling breath
as we have searched to find ourselves and our lives again. Wondering a bit,
