Looks like I fell into a hole

Thursday evenings, after leaving the Zendo, on the ride home I always can sense a lighter me. I embrace the night. As I pull into the gas station, a young man, not much older than my son, in a wheel chair is making his way in front of me to an old red sedan at the opposite […]
