“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power." -- Unknown

In the quiet of my mother's house, clocks mark each passing second, and strike away the hours. Life keeps upping the ante with each tick, and I carefully study my insides to find out what undiscovered part of me will arise and respond to its next chime. Last year my mother fought cancer. My grandfather died. And was I enough of me, but enough of God, and enough of bone and muscle and heart?

All I know is I'm still here.


Your words are worth a thousand pictures.
