Where Am I, Where are We?

“How are you taking care of you?” The question was posed as if I should actually know what the hell he was talking about . . . “what do you mean?”  “I mean, how are you going to get your needs met without her?  You are responsible for getting your needs met . . .” It was one of my early counseling sessions.  I had begun attending as a result of a marriage that was disintegrating.  My divorce came like the proverbial thief in the night; a silent, unexpected, incomprehensible villain wielding […]

There is a time . . . when the world is overcome by blackness, an emptiness that shakes the foundation of all life and shatters the quickening core.  A darkness unparalleled in the physical world.  It enters upon a death-knell of selfish arrogance and kills all beauty and wonder.  It’s depth, a famine of the soul that grips you . . . emptying your essence into a swirling void of fear and pain.  A vile filth-pit, stealing […]
