A Time to Cleanse the Soul

How Altitude Affects My Attitude!

shutterstock_406010773When I was a small boy, my military minded father insisted on scrubbing me with Lava soap. Lava was a perfect name, because the soap had rocks embedded in it.

Lava could remove grease and grime and even skin and bones if you kept scrubbing. It was like sandpaper for humans.

HOWEVER! When the scrubbing was over and I rinsed off I felt like a new person. Refreshed. “Spic and span.” Uber-clean. Occasionally my soul needs a cleaning like that.

Is There Hope in an Ever Changing World?

All those classmates I had lived to impress, all those friends who promised to keep in touch, disappeared.

Life as I knew it changed overnight.
