To answer or not to answer

I rarely, if ever, answer my home phone. That is not to say it doesn't ring. It rings a lot. However, I no longer have that Pavolvian response to respond immediately to its siren call. A response those of us of a certain age remember. And a response that many far younger than I am feel when their cell phones ring or beep indicating that a text message has arrive.

No place for nuance

Eddie called himself a private detective, although all he really did was repossess cars. He would show up around 4 p.m. at the cafe where I worked after school, have his usual cup of coffee, and tell me a thing or two about what we used to call "real life." One day he told me how he used to load his coat pockets with brass doorknobs, which he used to "put out the lights" of homosexuals. I was 16 and getting an education of sorts.

Gray ribbons for Team Traci

When Traci Mask dropped a weight at the gym because her hand went numb, she thought back to all the scattered symptoms she had been experiencing. Headaches, numbness in her right arm, hand and side of her face, trouble walking, tiredness, memory problems and even passing out while driving one day seemed unrelated and spread out to her before, but now she decided to see a doctor.

Just a thought: Time's Up!

Yup, we say it, feel it and live like it. Those times when life seems bleak, situations seem impossible, prayers seem to go unanswered for a long time and we conclude, "Time's up!" I have waited and waited but apparently God is not going to do this or that. Or, I have given this ample time (in our time frame) so, God must be saying "no."
