A couple of days ago, a large number of chicken littles were running about, announcing the end of Thoughts.com. They swore it was dead, deceased, loose of the mortal coil.    They then went shopping for other places to write their doodles, post...

Swimming in the river DeNial

Riding the bus can be educational. The other day, there was a guy who to say is a liberal is to say the pope is catholic. He had some interesting views.... *America, not the WHO, or the UN, or Britain, or France, should be dedicating money, people,...

Hi Ben....

Tim here. There are many around here that find recent problems and flaws reason to leave the site and burn you in efigy. I love this place. While I find the events disconcerting, I am not leaving.   Ben, you gave us writers a chance, a place to...

A "special" handicap.

Handicapped people have it rough. The physical limitations can be horrific, or at least mind affecting. The handicap can bring out the very best, or worst, of a person. I present you "Shirley".   I do not know Shirley, but she is handicapped. I...

Who to believe....

So much rhetoric, so many twists. Washington DC is spin central, and now the election cycle has them spinning even faster. Who do you believe?   The left says that the economy has rebounded, unemployment is down. The right says the economy...

What makes my....

What makes my heart skip a beat And my smile go from ear to ear What makes me want to speak Speak words of infatuation What makes me a giddy school boy And turns my brain adolescent Like Charlie Brown I've got it bad For that...

A friend....

I have a friend who calls me almost every night. We chat about everything. Sometimes, not much is said at all. Last night she called, and I was very distracted, very quiet.   She didn't pry, didn't wonder what was wrong. I thank her for that....

The tip jar....

The portrayal...

The actor rises, greeting the new day A role he plays today and every day The smile on his face The spring in his step A balancing act of grand proportion The stage is the world The cast all upon it Like a jester for laughs Or...

When you can't run....

When you can't run, you crawl. When you can't crawl, well, that's when you have somebody carry you. I'm on my knees, about to crawl. I have run too far, too fast. The problem with running is you overlook things, leave things undone or unsaid. I have...
