Practicing at a Church I Usually Don’t Go To – A Short Short Poem

Is is weird to be happy that today is day #1 of my new ‘Pain and Suffering’ series?
Friends in Pain
Recently I posted the following on my Facebook profile.
“Recently I have talked to 4 friends in pain over relationships and where they are in life. I don’t like seeing my friends in pain but I love knowing them well enough to know that they can get through it. Pain isn’t forever, even if it…
A Short Short Story
5 seconds in her mind while we were in a church and she was in front of us and I watched her for a while before I made this up

I think this is true but incomplete. I think it must be added that it’s not always the alley that is blind, it’s the person in the alley who is.Blind Alley, Blind Person
A researcher can contribute their own blindness or shortsightedness to the process of going down an investigative alley. At least I know this…
