Clowning Around

Clowning Around

By Jimmy Bruce After the All-Star debacle in Milwaukee on July 9th, my boss and I were discussing the decline and possible demise of America’s pastime.  Our conversation ended with him saying, “I do so miss those days when baseball had honor.”  Putting the words “honor” and “baseball” together made me think of my best day. It [...]

The Death Clock

The Death Clock

By Shane Speal There’s a unique little web site lurking in the dark crevices of the Internet that knows when you’re gonna die.  Yep, some crazy used life-span statistics to build a program that gives you the actual day of your demise.  It’s called www.deathclock.com and believe it or not, it’s a constant source of inspiration for [...]

The Seven Year Scratch

The Seven Year Scratch

by Tim Miles What were you doing seven years ago this week? May of 2003. What was going on in your world? I wrote the following email seven years ago about my first evening in Austin, Texas … or more correctly Buda, Texas. Dee and I weren’t married yet and figured if we could survive a 16-hour drive from Columbia, Missouri, to Austin, [...]

Best Dayz

Best Dayz

by Dick Taylor, Fearless Flyers My best day?  That’s hard to say. Perhaps the day I was born one early morn. Then there was my first kiss.  Total bliss with a sweet little miss.  I wanted more, but alas, I was only four. The day I graduated from a trike to a bike.  That was a day I’ll always like. My wedding day certainly was [...]

What Is My Name?

What Is My Name?

by David E. Rothacker I patiently wait for someone to reach out, grab hold, and never let me go.  I have existed in this state since the beginning of time.  Sometimes a person will get just a piece of me.  Sometimes I will be clutched for a split second – and then let go.  Other times I will be embraced by one and then another and I [...]

The Quest is Best

The Quest is Best

By Ed Duarte I like this “Best Day” quest.  After all, magazines often assign priceless cover space to ranking everything from hamburgers to songs. It’s hot.  Letterman’s “Top 10” works because we like rankings as much as we like to laugh at one-liners. But is it best to weigh and rank? Hold on.  Don’t jump me yet.   I [...]

Three and You’re Juggling

Three and You’re Juggling

By Carlos Pellegrini By the end of the semester, my professor had realized three things: a) I didn’t like accounting; b) I was a quick learner; and c) if I didn’t pass the final, I was out of school.  Considering all of this, he offered me a private session… in juggling! He explained that juggling was a process of learning, not just [...]

Service?

Service?

By Ben Laime At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word service. I perceived it as the act of doing things for other people. But then I learned about the Internal Revenue Service, the Postal Service, and service stations, and I became a bit confused. It all came into perspective one day when I overheard one [...]

A Summit Reached

A Summit Reached

By Kelly Kangles One by one they descended from the sapphire sky. Armed in rich cloth, wielding words and power of global status, protected by outrageous apparatus… and armies of order. By thousands, others ascended from the dark unknown.   Bearing weapons of poetry and chant, breaking out in vicious rant… to all who offend their [...]
