Greatness

Spitting Image

“She looks just like you!” That’s the usual, almost automatic response we give to any new parent holding their baby. Sometimes its only an unfounded nicety since most babies really look like, well…babies. But for our newest granddaughter its not just a nice thing to say when you first meet her. She looks like her […]

The Dignity of Humilty

Arrogance seldom has as good a platform to strut its obnoxious nature as during political seasons. The current one might well take the cake. A mind-numbing glut of information has simply made it worse. Social media allows politicians to parade pride like an anorexic super-model posturing on a catwalk. It does seem hunger for power […]

He drew a Starbucks barista. This first grader seemed to have it all wrong. How did a person who brewed high-priced java become […]

Wait, wait!…

“Wait, wait…” It is his intrepid way to interrupt the ongoing line of chatter because something has sparked an urgent question in his quick young mind. I could be talking about anything at all, but if along the way I mention something he does not fully understand or wants to know more about, he simply blurts […]
