Why it’s so hard for me to be religious.

This is a personal issue I’ve been struggling with. And, by personal, I mean mine. I can’t possibly articulate, value or judge your beliefs. I can only wrestle with my own. There’s an old joke amongst former Catholic School attendees; you can tell who went to Catholic School because they’re all atheists now. Many of […]

Can you make a circle of trust with only three people? Or does that just make a triangle of mental illness?

When we were younger, my brother and I took the bus after school to our babysitter’s house.  Her name was Brenda, she’d been doing this for twenty years, she was the meanest woman I knew, and we’d stay there until 5 o’clock Monday through Friday, unless something wonderful happened, like the chicken pox or an […]
