John Michael

A week ago today I had to make the difficult decision to have my brother removed from life support. He had gone into cardiac arrest a few days before. They worked on him for 30 minutes and brought him back. He had heart damage, a huge hematoma on his brain and was experiencing liver and … More John Michael

Mothers Day 2019

You were a shadow, a vapor, a dream in a child’s heart. An invisible force, not in my life, but responsible for my existence. Years of dancing without and within a relationship that never transpired, left me exhausted. A lifetime of observing, from a distance.

Say Cheese

Family

To say our family is different from theirs would be an understatement. Many people have dysfunction in their family. It is not an unusual thing.   For years I carried this picture in my Bible. It is a picture of my brother. He was given up for adoption many years ago. I had registered him … More Family
