One of the joys I’ve found in life has been my long-standing friendships with others. That could explain my love of sports. Through sports, I’ve been involved with many teams and teammates. It’s been through sports, mostly football, that I’ve developed friendships spanning two continents, three countries, and fifty years. Brian was my first friend and neighbor in 1963. In 1965, his family was transferred to San Paulo, Brazil with Ford Motor Company. In 1971, my family was transferred to Mexico City with Ford. In 1974, Brian moved to Mexico City, and was once again my neighbor. Through some quirk of fate, Brian returned to the States in 1975 to the same town to which I would eventually return. He began playing football, becoming friends with my future teammates.

Back in 2/2013, I published a sci-fi thriller, The Soul Cage on Amazon after not finding a publisher. Approximately two years later, I was contacted by creative.org. They’d picked it up off a Twitter promotion, and wished to re-publish it. I didn’t see the point, but they promised a promotional effort I wasn’t providing. I signed up. The Soul cage became a top-ten earning Sci-fi by summer, 2016. True to their word, New Chapter (part of Creativa.org) has now produced an Audio version of The Soul Cage on Amazon that went online 12/28/2002. So if you’re not the reading type, you can listen to The Soul Cage, and discover what happens to the soul when a person is teleported from on location to another. Go to bookernovels.com. And click on The Soul cage book cover to take you to amazon, and download the audio file.

There is one almost certain truth. Nothing today is as good as we remember it from the past. That is true of Christmas Trees today versus twenty years ago. I recall going with my father as a child to pick out our family tree. We normally went to a sm...

Nineteen years is not long enough for a young man to mature. Add in a case of beer, a house full of college football players on the last day of two-a-day practices, and there’s bound to be trouble.

The phrase “fake news” first came to the public forefront during the 2016 Presidential election. I recall it first being used by candidate Trump, but it soon became a phrase dominating journalism. I figured I’d thrown in my two cents, since it seems a worthy blog topic.

Jack was soaked and shivering as he stumbled across the Espinosa’s fields toward their house. Lightening lit his path before the rumbling thunder vibrated through his body. The sound of thunder was replaced by angry shouts as he neared their front door. Jack’s fear and anger were reawakened. He realized, Jorge, his stepfather, was home from work. Jorge sounded drunk again. He was probably beating Jack’s mother, Esther.

This blog was inspired by the 1993 song Jesse by Joshua Kadison in which he sings how Jesse’s dreams are never free. Listening to this song got my thinking of how costly my own goals in life have been, and yet how rewarding those goals have been upon completion. By “dreams” I’m referring to distant goals in one’s life, not the mental images produced during R. E. M. sleep.
