What is Me?

Who am I? What is me? Am I more than I can see? Whom is this who returns my stare From my mirrors misty glare? Why I'm here? What's my name? Just let me know from where I came Are these thoughts inside my head? Or is there Something Else instead? Is my life just… Continue reading What is Me?

The Speck of Dust

It was on the back porch that Tony and I discovered the secrets of the universe. We were never bothered by the hot rays of the afternoon sun, or the hardness of the concrete steps that flaked of worn, gray paint. A robin chirped happily in the tree above us. Tony played drums and I… Continue reading The Speck of Dust

What is Important Now?

A friend of mine consoles terminally ill patients.  Many times she is there, holding their hand as they walk into the light of an unknown door.  Her experience has taught her a great truth, which is to always ask oneself, “What is important now?”  In her case, the most important thing to do in those… Continue reading What is Important Now?

The Stolen Car

I should have known something was wrong when I approached my old Maxima in the dark holiday-lighted parking lot.  But I didn't. I'm sure it cost more in gasoline to make a trip to the mall drugstore for a tiny bottle of a cholesterol-reducing drug.  The doctor told me I could eliminate my pizza diet,… Continue reading The Stolen Car

Childhood Memories

Embrace Your Life

Grandpa's footsteps shuffled into the spare bedroom I was sleeping.  His house was stout and was constructed of thick wood beams, complete with an old-fashioned porch swing.  Grandpa probably built the house with his own hands as a wedding present for grandma. I didn't raise my head from the early morning covers, which shielded me… Continue reading Embrace Your Life

We Love Dirty Dishes!

Written by Diamond Mike Watson “One hundred forty-one degrees and rising!” I yelled. “Not high enough!” Mark replies over the roar of the giant droid-like dishwasher.  “The water needs to be at least one hundred and forty-five degrees to sanitize.” “More dirty bowls and cups coming at ya!” Molly calls out from behind my shoulder.… Continue reading We Love Dirty Dishes!

What Is Our Purpose?

I noticed the beautiful plumes of purple on our jacaranda as I sat underneath it's shade. Purple is my favorite color anyways, and the stark contrast of the tree's flowers against lush green leaves gave me great joy.  Later, a hummingbird buzzed past me to play in the branches. I was filled with a sense… Continue reading What Is Our Purpose?

I am Adopted

Written by Diamond Mike Watson The life of an adoptee is sometimes like that of an ancient voyager who searches for the unknown.  The explorers, however, used navigational tools and the stars to guide their destiny.  They had their sights on the wonders that lay ahead of them.  An adoptee, on the other hand, travels in… Continue reading I am Adopted
