The two friends glance at Rob, who is busy dismembering a paper napkin. Judging from the pile of shreds, it isn’t his […]

Do Good Anyway

 This week has been crazy, and I’m struggling with what to say as a spiritual reflection. As summer transitions into winter, as my part of the world experiences (yet another) preventable spike in pandemic numbers, as we prepare for yet another highly-contentious election, I find myself facing this growing desire to stomp off in disgust […]

FF: Not For Sale

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Here in the United States, we are celebrating two very different holidays. Well, some of us are. I have to go to work today, so actually I’m celebrating that. I love my job. Here in the U.S., we have Columbus Day, aka the day we celebrate this dude accidentally “discovering” some islands off the mainland […]

IWSG: Working Writer

October 7 question – When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if latter two, what does that look like? This month’s Insecure Writer’s Support […]

Blessed

There are so many things about faith and the things that other people believe that I don’t understand – and I don’t think that I ever will. For example, my fellow Catholics talk about “preferential option for the poor” and for the life of me I don’t know what this means or what it is […]

FF: Can’t Keep a Good Man Down

PHOTO PROMPT © Dale Rogerson Click Frog to Join Ever since we decided to “come out of the coffin,” things have gotten better in some ways and more complicated in others. For example, non-discrimination ordinances don’t allow No Vampire signs, but villagers could get clever. At my favorite Italian place, I note conspicuous cloves of garlic […]

In Mourning

I was going write a post on Spiritual Warfare, but then something truly sad happened this past week. For anyone reading this who doesn’t already know: Supreme Court Justice and all-around incredible woman Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. In honor of her, I remember. Women are people too. And no human person exists purely for […]
