I was thankful that the sharp lump in my throat, the grotesque lump that signified endless sobbing, was gone. For now. As I lingered in the waiting room for doctors, no one consoled me.

    Life is a road of obstacles in which you step on nails, broken glass, hot coals, and blades of steel. Your feet bleed and your wounds throb, but how do we persevere? How do we keep pushing on from the nails digging at our strength, the glass biting on our pride, the coals burning our hope, and the blades shredding our dreams?

    Grave Lumps & Wishbones Like all things late in a man’s life, it began with his prostate. Ironically, first he couldn’t pee; now he can’t stop. With the Swiss precision of a finely honed Omega stopwatch, at the twenty minute mark he starts squirming, like pricked bait on a hook. At forty minutes, in raindrop dappled shoes, he’s Fred Astaire. And Old Faithful on the hour, every hour, with nothing slowing the copious geyser of his fire hydrant red pee-mail: an inadvertent Big Dog challenge to
