When I was a boy the one Christmas present me and my brothers never wanted but always got was socks. Every year under the tree there would be a package of thick, white tube socks for each of us.

In time, however, the lights were taken down, the Christmas tree was thrown out, and only...

This incident happened sometime in 2010 when I was on an official assignment in USA. I used to take the bus regularly to my office and back home. On my way back home there was this guy who gets on my bus with his seeing eye dog. The dog was the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Oh, the patience it had with its master!

By Joseph J. Mazzella on December 16, 2014 / 1,047 views

When I was a boy I used to look forward to Christmas morning with all the eager anticipation of a child. I couldn't wait to crawl under the tree, pull out my presents, and rip off the paper. Yet, the best part of the day came after the presents. Once those presents were opened I would spend hours reading the books I got with pure pleasure and playing with the toys I got with joyful abandon. Yet, the best part of the...

By Bernie on December 14, 2014 / 1,325 views

Ten years ago I was sitting on a commuter train from Barcelona to Montpelier, a nice journey hugging the shoreline along the Costa Brava, when we came to a halt in the middle of nowhere. After a short while the conductor's voice on the speakers announced in French and Spanish that there was a problem on the tracks ahead and that we'd be delayed a while. A sigh went through the carriage and there was a sullen silence...

Love Over Fear

By Callie on December 13, 2014 / 1,473 views

By Callie on December 13, 2014 / 1,473 views

When it comes down to it, there really is only love or fear to choose from. The obvious way we think about this is, choose love every time. The trouble we run into though, is that fear wears many disguises. It won’t always come to us as fear. It will come to us as practicality, being realistic, scarcity. We limit our abilities and build walls around our potential because we are afraid of our own greatness. The...

Bruce had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We'd run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile. So this morning he said to me, "We're going to go five." I said, "Bruce, I can't go five. I'm a hell of a lot older than you are, and I can't do five." He said, "When we get to three, we'll shift gears and it's only two more and you'll do it." I...

I woke up in the middle of the night with a start. My aging and aching back had jolted me awake with a sharp pain. I got up and stretched in the dark until it eased, laid back down again, and shut my eyes. I couldn't go back to sleep, though. Finally, I gave up and switched on the television. One of those early morning infomercials was on. Two women were going on and on about a new product that hid the wrinkles...

That Saturday it was really hot. Too hot to clean the paths, but we did it anyway. The noise from the cicadas in the olive trees surrounding us was deafening. I could hardly breathe. Sweat gushed from my face, my T-shirt was soaking wet and my hair looked as if I’d just stepped out of the shower. I stopped pulling the weeds from between the old stones and stretched my painful back. ‘You should take a...
