The Tale of Two Sons I will freely admit that in the sum total of my life, I have fallen as many times as I have gotten back up. That is neither a confession nor bragging. I think that all of our lives can be interpreted as one thing or another at any given point […]

The countdown to the 2020 election continues. I received a lot of feedback (mostly positive) about yesterday’s post. I imagine there will be more today. It’s okay.
