Don't Let Your Inner Life Die

Whatever trials you are going through today I would implore you to avoid a state of depression as if it were the plague! Don't let your inner life die! If there is a meaning to life than there is also meaning to the trials we experience. Never give up the last of human freedoms; to choose one's own way...the ability to respond positively to life's experiences. Do not close your eyes and try to live in the past when...

Ida Lee & Me Tom Froehlich “My name is Ida Lee and I’m ninety years old. Who the hell are you?!” That was how I met Ida Lee. She was a regular and long-standing member of the writing group I attended on Tuesday nights. Ida was writing a book about her adventures as a Los Angeles city cab driver. Ida began driving cab when she was sixty-three while pursuing her acting career and continued to do so...

My family has a cottage, built by my grandfather over eighty years ago that lies on the peninsula of Door County Wisconsin. Door County is known as the “Cape Cod of the Midwest” and is dotted with cherry orchards who’s summer fruit is transformed into jams, jellies and pies and sold to tourists throughout the summer. The land is surrounded by water on three sides allowing the air to hold a kind of ethereal,...

"What about the lavender?" Her skin was the color of those windmill cookies my mom used to buy when I was a kid. Her head wrapped in violet cotton, mirrored the fragrance she had just mentioned. One of the many jobs I had, while trying to find my place in Southern California, was promoting organic, bath and body, products at local farmers markets and festivals. I found that people are often drawn to the color...

My dad had a spot on his pancreas. "Only a shadow," they said. "Nothing serious, but we should do a biopsy just to make sure." His doctor suggested he have it done in October, but he decided to wait until I left in January. “I know if anything goes wrong Tom won’t go and I don’t want anything to get in the way of his dream of moving to California,” he said to my mom. My mom reiterated what the doctors...

It's Who We Are

I saw the lights of Los Angeles twinkling below me like the Christmas I had left behind. While other passengers watched movies, played games on ipods and napped in the darkness of the cabin I replayed the Christmas I had shared with my family. My eyes welled up with tears more than once in the course of the four-hour flight. Part of it is because I am a 6’3’, 235 pound (Hey! That’s what it says on my...

Happily Ever After

By Tom Froehlich on January 29, 2015 / 101 views

Driving home from work the other night, many things weighed heavily on my mind. The bulk of them most likely weighed more heavily than were necessary. Nothing terribly important. Just a whole closet full of nightmares of what may go wrong in my life. A closet full of nightmares and stories I create. Stories that usually end with “…and then I was shot in the head while falling off of a cliff, dying of some...

Happy Birthday!!

The pizza box lying next to me was translucent with pepperoni grease. “It must be heartburn,” I thought. “It has to be heartburn. Well, it’s either that or a heart attack and I refuse to have a heart attack at one o’ clock in the morning!” Besides, it was my birthday as of an hour ago and you just don’t have heart attacks on your birthday. For three hours I laid in bed insisting what it was or was...

Back On Track

As a teenager of the eighties, I always admired the U.S.A. As a matter of fact, I could never understand that anyone in Europe would want to stay in these old fashioned countries with hundreds of languages, nobody understands, and NOT move to the United States. Everything from the U.S. seemed so fresh and easy and fun. When I tried to make my parents celebrate Thanksgiving, I only got a blank look and 4th of July...

On any given day, at any given moment we have the ability to change the course of our lives. Most of the time the fear of the unknown is so frightening we would rather stay in a situation that is familiar even if it's destructive. Take courage! Uncover the strength that lies dormant and move...

My Diamond in the Rough. Ever since I was little, I had always dreamt of owning an Andalusian. I loved everything about them, their movement, their loyalty, their build, their presence, everything. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever be lucky enough to own one. On the 21st of March 2010, along with our good friends, we attended an auction at the Mundijong Saleyard in Perth, Western...

I once heard a fantastic, short story which gave me a perspective on life that I still use to this day. As in one of my previous blogs “The Garbage Truck Principle”, I enjoy sharing things that I feel may help other people. It is again my hope that today’s posting will, in some way; help you or someone you know, look at life from a different point of view. One day, many years ago, one of the richest men in...

Where Do You Get Your Energy From?

There was a lot of construction going on in our neighborhood. I would always wave at the guys working on the homes as I walked by each day on my daily power walk. I felt like I half way knew these construction workers because I saw them every morning. This particular morning I smiled and waved like always, when one of the men yelled, "Wait a minute, we have a question to ask you." I was surprised and wondered what...

Watching The Sun Come Up

By Joseph J. Mazzella on January 27, 2015 / 761 views

If you have never taken the time to watch the sun come up in the morning then you really should do so. It is so good for the soul. You need to go out early when the night sky is still dark and full of stars. Then find yourself a comfortable place to stand or sit and take it all in. The black sky will slowly begin to transform into a dark blue while the dimmer stars and then the brighter ones fade from view....

As I walked down to the mailbox I had no idea what was waiting there. I opened the door and saw this little box. "What on earth could this be?" I thought as I took it out. Hum, it was from Texas Wonder Pet Co. Dallas, Texas. It was addressed to Todd. I hurried back up the hill to the house. I yelled for Todd as I opened the door and went in. "Todd, you have a little box here from Texas Wonder Pet Co. ...

An Amazing Thing Happened At The Bowling Alley

I run a bowling alley, and each week we have a group of kids from the special Olympics come in to bowl. Currently, we are renovating the lanes to make them wheelchair accessible. A customer came in and saw our efforts to make life fun for those who might need some help and paid for their next 10 sessions and food for all 10 weeks. He doesn't want recognition, he just wanted to help out a group of amazing...

I walked up to the big white door and knocked. I heard the door unlock and a large lady with a stern look, opened the door. "Are you here to see someone?" she asked. "Hi, my name's Kay, I'm here to see everyone," I answered in a friendly voice. There was an uneasy pause as she looked me over. Then she introduced herself as Bessie* and invited me inside. To tell you the truth I can't remember how I knew about this...
