Tour Of Duty

by Charles Wasleski

My Tour of Duty is over. I enlisted at the age of 28. And there were a lot of struggles along the way. Being woken up at odd hours of the day and night.  Not much sleep early on. You take naps when you can.  Sneak in a few minutes here and there. I learned […]

Coming Home

Being a Conscious Parent

by CosmicDad

There is no surprise that becoming a parent requires no special education.  In fact, there isn’t really any skill required to become a parent (although some wives might argue otherwise).  For some, the role came about by accident; for others, it was intentional; and other still, it was with significant effort and expense.  No matter […]

Mr. Chips Goes To Graduation

by Charles Wasleski

Graduation.  A happy time. The students:  Walk in quietly to the music playing.  Parade around in their good clothes. See their parents and other family members in the audience. Cheering them on.

by Bruce Sallan

Where and when did it seem that everyone felt entitled? Entitled to an education, happiness, college, a home, every new tech toy, and a new car now and then, etc. I know the answer, as it was an evolution and change in attitude that began in the sixties, in my opinion. Some might say it […]
