The Gamble
The following story is real and true, although for the reasons of privacy I changed all the names, locations, and all the facts.  Other than that, this is precisely what took place – Frank wanted to cry, but instead he glanced at the dealer and softly chuckled.  It had to […]

When Words Fail
A symbol of sadness or an expression of happiness?  A display of vulnerability or a sign of relief?  They say that tears are simply words that the heart can’t express… No one will say for certain if the following story is true, but here it goes: it was a premiere […]

The Medal of Honor
After a tumultuous 2020 and a violent start to 2021, I now can’t see, can’t smell, can barely hear, and in all likelihood will soon also lose my senses of touch and taste.  Luckily, all of this is a source of great entertainment for my wife & family members.  And […]

Till The Last Breath
I looked across the table and could barely contain my excitement.  I had to play it cool and appear indifferent – such was the proper etiquette.  What I really wanted to do was jump up and scream at the top of my lungs; I wanted to high-five everyone in the room, […]

The Blind Ambition
You know that moment when you wake up and step outside, and you can literally feel the crisp air and the brisk, blue sky; when everything is so clear and perfect, you feel like you can see all the way to the end of the earth?  Well, I don’t.  Truth […]

The Real Secret
Like most people, I have spent my entire life searching for that coveted secret to happiness.  To some, the secret lies in focusing on the positive and doing what they love.  To many others, it means listening to great music, traveling and being able to afford just about anything and […]

The Greatest Show On Earth
I am a relatively humble guy, but even I have to admit – I look simply fantastic these days!  My face is as handsome and manly as ever, and all thanks to the latest fashion statement – the mask.  I know that they will likely cancel and forget about Covid-19 […]

The Second Line
The old man sat up in his chair and leaned forward, extending his hand toward me.  I took the matches that were on the stained coffee table in front of him to light his cigarette.  His eyes were still bright, despite his age – he had to be at least […]

The Ultimate Pursuit
It was close to 6 o’clock when I stepped out of my office building; the sun was on its final decline toward the horizon; the colors were flying in the sky, the evening was slowly setting in.  I walked toward the parking lot, remembering that I parked all the way […]

The Alpha
While you were busy with your life, getting married, starting and giving up on a new diet, waiting for your computer to restart, buying new shoes, listening to your wife and surviving a biological attack, you totally missed the fact that the Generational Clock has recently restarted!  What clock, you […]

The Rules of the Game
These days I am definitely a runner.  Running completely and utterly alone, following the rules like a good boy.  We simply need to do something to get our minds further away from the overwhelming reality.  There are too many questions that our inner reason cannot process, but also can’t dismiss.  […]

The Pendulum of Time
The world has become a crazy place, especially if you turn on the news or simply scroll through your social media feed.  I don’t believe we’ve had a shred of positive news in the last several months, and anytime something even remotely positive pops up on the screen, it gets […]

Once Upon A Time
Let me tell you a story, a fairytale, if you will. Once upon a time, there was a kingdom that truly ruled the world.  It was considered by far the wealthiest & happiest of all the nations, with people flocking to live there at any cost.  Its economic affluence was […]

Smoke & Mirrors
Say what you will, but there are moments when time just stands still.  Moments when life pauses and you come to a realization.  It happens to everyone, whether you are the President or a lowly prisoner, because in the end we are all just people, with our feelings and our […]

Only Time Will Tell
About 10 years ago, there was a party to which I wasn’t invited.  Neither were you, but don’t be upset.  Believe it or not, not a single person was invited to this get-together, which was thrown by the crazy physicist Stephen Hawking.  You see – the party was exclusively for […]
