There is no “I” in “CANCER”

March 2017— One thing cancer has shown me is that no matter how much you prepare and educate yourself you can never fully understand the enormity of what it means to have cancer. Oh, I wasn’t diagnosed with cancer. My wife was. When one person is diagnosed with cancer, the ones closest to them are afflicted too. There’s no way around it. You can’t complain.

It’s not whether you win or lose…

February 2017— So, I entered a short story contest the other day. I receive various email updates from a myriad of writing sites and groups, one of which was notifying me that their short(er) story contest deadline was being extended.

All Things Being Equal

May 2014 — So I bought a new pair of sneakers. I wore them for an entire day, but noticed that the right shoe squeaked more on bare floor surfaces. Just needs breaking in, I thought. At the end of the day I observed that both sneakers were identical except for the tread pattern on the bottom. As snap decisions go, I much preferred the tread on the left sneaker, with its dips and contours,…
