Author, poet, short story writer from Santa Barbara, California. I write about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching present in California. These are narratives that may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.

  1. I’ve yet to meet someone who is 🙂

  2. However much we try, I don’t know whether we can reach perfection.

  3. Good story! I like the placement of the minister’s statement at the very end, so even if the story is cut off at a hundred words, the ending opens the door to speculation – – is it just a general feeling of imperfection, or will he go on to confess some particular transgression, etc.

    • The idea of perfection is quite ambiguous, Robert. It means different things to people. And it reminds me of the movie, the two popes, in which the younger man didn’t think he’d be capable of being a pope because of a perceived mistake he made in the past. The idea of perfection seems to run contrary to who we really are.

  4. As a PK, I can attest to the emotional truth of your story.

  5. There is only ONE perfect Man, and He is the one the Minister serves. How good that he was able to show his humility to the character in this story. Thanks again!
