Know When to Hold ‘Em

She responded to his warmth, she basked in his company.  They shared a sense of humor and agreed on life goals. But every time she thought he would propose, something sidelined him. A new work assignment, a friend going through a rough time…all seemingly reasonable reasons for him to pay her less attention, but somehow...

Perhaps Love

If you know what your car engine sounds like when running normally, you will instantly pick up early signs of mechanical problems. If you know the sound your baby makes when he’s hungry, you will immediately recognize a cry of pain. Departure from pattern is a warning sign.

Sing(apore) for Your Supper

One and Only

It is no fun to be roped into a game whose rules are a bewildering mystery.  It’s positively painful to start a new job and discover that nobody’s in charge and lines of communication and authority are as temporary as jet contrails in a windy sky.  It’s rough on children to grow up amidst arbitrary...
