All Roads Lead Home

By Joseph J. Mazzella on May 12, 2017 / 3,364 views

By Joseph J. Mazzella on May 12, 2017 / 3,364 views

When I was a boy there were no smart phones, computers were something you saw on STAR TREK, and our television only got one channel clearly. Still, I was never bored. The fields, hills, and woodlands around my home were the perfect playground whose adventures were only limited by my imagination. I can remember once hiking to a nearby lake and slowly walking around it. At the backside of it I was amazed to find...

I live in an apartment complex and was driving through the parking lot this morning when I saw a boy around 5 years old. He was carrying a trash bag over his shoulder while walking along the sidewalk on the way to the dumpster. He looked back at me about to pass him then looked forward and started running. I pulled up alongside him and he looked over to see if he was winning our spontaneous race. I put my car...

Someone asked "What's your "secret" to a happy life? What makes your days blissful?" on a forum. We thought this response was wonderful: I'm not annoyinglyI think I've got a higher level of life satisfaction than a lot of my friends. There are four things that I can put my finger on that I think I do a little differently than them (and a lot of people). Hope they...

Ijey (as we fondly call her) got married after graduation, when she became pregnant, we were all...

I don't deal with change well. Actually, I would rather stay in the same place, with the same people for the rest of my life. Kind of in my own bubble. But life just doesn't work that way. I don't like to be pushed out of my comfort zone. It scares me to even fathom trying new things. But when I finally do, I find this new sense of identity and direction every time. It's a feeling I can't...

Spring had come to the mountains of my home. Fresh green grass was coming up in my yard. Yellow dandelions and buttercups were blooming in the meadows. Tulips and purple Phlox were growing in the flower boxes. Bumblebees and butterflies were dancing among them. In the woods white, purple, and pink blossoms were rapidly turning to green leaves on the trees. It was the most alive I had seen the world in a long...

I pushed my face into the sofa...

I’ve learned from life that sometimes, the darkest times can bring us to the brightest places. That our most painful struggles can grant us the most necessary growth; and that the most heartbreaking losses of friendship and love can make room for the most wonderful people. I’ve learned that what seems like a curse at the moment can actually be a blessing, and that what seems like the end of the...

Our old couch had seen better days. The fabric of its cushions was ripped and torn in places. I had covered the spots in duct tape but foam was still leaking out of them. The springs inside of it were broken. The sheet we covered it with was torn, sewn, and torn again. The right front leg had worked loose and fell off whenever we sat down on it. All in all our couch had become beaten, battered, and very...

I may be a bit old school but I think that people who store all of their pictures on their smart phones are missing out on something. There is nothing like seeing a loved one’s smiling face looking down on you from a picture frame on your wall. It is both comforting and reassuring, almost like they are watching over you while you work at your desk. As I work at my own desk I can see my Mom’s...

I just saw the cab number and entered inside the car. I was so busy that I didn't pay any attention towards the driver. I was searching for an important paper from my leather bag, so instantly said, 'Please, go quick! I'm in a...
