Dear Molly: Married Man

January 13, 2012

Dear Molly,
I have a problem and need advice.
I’ve lived in Austin for five years now and left a guy in California who I was having an affair with.
He was married and I was single. We met at work and things got hot and heavy quickly. We traveled together for work which made it “easy” to see each other. I always felt badly for his wife because from everything I saw she was really sweet.

'I column as I see 'em' weekly

January 11, 2012

For those of you who have become regular adherents of this weekly expedition into the cogitations which occupy the cerebral geography located between my ears you have learned I am, much like Superman of comic book fame, an unapologetic crusader for truth, justice and the American way.
While not claiming to be highly intellectual or even able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, I do consider myself to be relatively knowledgeable about a few things and when people who have absolutely no clue are in control it makes me uneasy.

Mostly good days at the Herald

January 11, 2012

Most days here at the Herald, life is good, especially those when I get to enjoy the beauty of a nice snowfall, a hot cup of coffee and some good tunes on my MP3 player. Sure, it’s a bit chilly and my socks are still wet from traipsing through the snow to shoot photos of a vehicle wreck first thing this morning, but that’s just part of the job, the life of a newshound.
Unfortunately, all is not well.

What's the rush?

January 10, 2012

Sometimes the most important ingredient in local government is time.

Time for elected officials to talk to the constituents and get a hold on their feelings for what their government is planning for the future of their community. Time for voters who have to deal with the comings and goings of their own lives to pick up the phone and talk to their councilman or councilwoman and let them know how they feel about the direction of the municipality.

I column as I see 'em

January 4, 2012

If you aren’t totally weary of pondering the matter I would like to address the issue of New Year’s resolutions and what I believe may be the missing element in making them more successful.
Oftentimes, lost in the shuffle of these traditional annual pledges to make positive and life-changing declarations is one particular component I wish to spotlight in my ramblings today which I believe just may be the “make or break” ingredient in the recipe for attainment of the desired goal.

I column as I see 'em

December 28, 2011

There is an endless storehouse of clichés and adages about something we actually think very little about outside of our subconscious, that precious and inestimable treasure known as time. Even a casual perusal of that reserve will lend such familiar platitudes as “time flies when you’re having fun”, “in the nick of time”, and “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Then there’s a “split second” or “just a cotton pickin’ minute,” and my personal favorite, the “New York Minute.” Surely we all know it’s “better to be late than never.”

Christmas spirit is like no other

December 22, 2011

Christmas time is a season full of miracles.
It seems out of all the months and other holiday seasons, Christmas brings out a different part of people. Something about Christmasreaches into people’s souls and unearths emotions, actions and other things which just wouldn’t be considered ordinary any other time of year.
This year has been a different kind of year all together.
Devastation has hit hard, with the high temperatures, severe drought conditions and horrible fires, but at the same time it has turned out to be a year filled with more positives than I could imagine.

I column as I see 'em

December 22, 2011

Well, ready or not Christmas is just a few hours away and chances are you’re not altogether ready for it. Oh, you’ve already fought the crowds and successfully secured those special gifts for even the hardest to please on your list and tucked away in the fridge is all food from the grocery list, but you’re still scratching your head in disbelief that it’s already here. Wasn’t it just a couple of months ago when you took down the lights from the gutters and stashed away the metal deer in its summer residence?

Poem: If

December 10, 2011

If people who are called by my name
will humble themselves and pray, seek My face,
and turn from their wicked ways, then will hear from heaven,
and forgive their sin and heal their land.
I like this definition of heal: to put something right, to repair or rectify
something that causes discord or animosity. Before a harmonious relationship
can be reestablished, the sin which caused the alienation must be dealt with.
Both testaments agree God is willing to forgive because of his love for us.
As Daniel cried in his prayer of confession. We do not make requests of you because

You are my hiding place

December 3, 2011

Psalm: 32:7 you are my hiding place; you shall preserve me from trouble; you shall compass me about with songs of deliverance.
The lord has been giving me songs lately, songs of deliverance.
This one says;
I am so thirsty, I am so hungry, can no one satisfy me, can no one satisfy my thirst, no one but you lord. And that in itself is a good thing, to hunger for God, to thirst for Him, especially in the time we are living in, the uprising of Americans in America. Where freedom has lost its meaning, no longer can you preach against sin.
