  • Never The Bride

    “Concussion” Those words echoed through my head and ripped straight into my soul as I sat back in the Medical Center of Tampa Bay. Johnny O’Dell’s stiff belt buckle shot straight across my temple rocked my brain causing my second concussion within a couple months. I couldn’t take the...
  • Killer Instincts

    Never in my life did I imagine becoming a huge fan of Yoga.  All the breathing, stretching, physical prowess invigorates me.  God damn I feel alive! The running, conditioning, intense physical workouts as professional wrestler now seem trivial.  Standing still like a tree, keeping balance in place; dear Jesus!...
  • Learning the Hard Way

  • Compassion and Mercy

    The cold beach air sweeps through the room.  Rotten eggs linger in your nostrils.  I loathe this place.  Tattered and torn clothing line the sticky floors of Metropolitan Ministries, the local homeless shelter in Tampa.  I loathed serving in homeless shelters.  My step-father drug me there daily to serve. ...
  • Through Fire and Brimstone

  • Second Chances

    Never in my entire life did I appreciate anyone more than I did my new life coach, Mickey O’Meara. Not many 75 year old men have a zest for life like he has. Hell, many of them rot away on their couches when they no longer could move. But...
