For many years I’ve been writing very short pieces that are musings on the passing scene, taking on the serious dilemmas of our time in personal and laugh-aloud ways. The trick has been to end with a positive twist on the dilemmas we are all facing. I wish to show how all this pain and negativity is our opportunity to shift focus and change how we live in the world.
