Morning Thoughts

I read The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal regularly as well as other publications on a consistent basis.

2034

I looked twice when I saw the date.  May 5, 2034.

This was the maturity date for a bond.

How many years is that from today?  16 Continue reading “2034”

Not one of them was capable of lying,

When I can’t find the words I need, I turn to poets and writers for their words on suffering.  Some words are a balm.  Others, an affirmation.
