September 11th Remembered

  As I am writing this entry, the calendar reads 9/11/12. Hard to imagine that 11 years has passed since another ‘day that will live in infamy’ occurred. Like the day JFK and John Lennon were killed, most people can […]

The Red Thread of Fate

  Tonight  I happened to tune into a new show, while pedaling away on the ellliptical at the gym. It is called Touch and stars Kiefer Sutherland as the widowed father of an 11 year boy who  is not verbal […]
