A few nights ago, I woke at 3:00 am and wandered into the kitchen to kill my diet. A repetitive clicking sound reverberated from the freezer. CLICK-CLICK-CLICK-CLICK. [...]

The love for theater grew into a very small movie studio with the help of i-movie and a video camera. I can't tell you the hours of fun it provided! [...]
By Tamara Glasner In the beginning...God Created! He loves His creation and we are made in His image and after Him we create. We create to bring him glory.

Lawrence Glasner For the Kingdom of God consists of and is based on not talk, but power—moral power and excellence of soul. I Corinthians 4:20 Sometimes you’ve got to stand and do what’s right. No matter the cost. You might lose a deal, clients, friends and family, your reputation or livelihood. You might get vilified, fired [...]
I learned two things about greatness from Chuck Norris. First, despite his real transcendence in the sport, he taught my class of rank novices as if our lives depended on what we learned. He was serious, inclusive, and efficient. Second, he gave us his undivided attention. He was not full of himself. He was full of us. And his bearing was noble, gentle, and authoritative.

The frenetic singing to Cuanto la Gusta started up and Edie began to sway. “You and your sisters were singers in a hip underground jazz club. You must have picked up some of the new moves. Why don’t you teach us how to swing a little? Horatio, come here! Peter, you take Piper. Lorelai, you can demonstrate with Frank.
To look at the snow, and not say a word, Count the colors and feathers of a round soaring bird.

Lawrence Glasner Between January 12, 1990, the day the President of the State Bar of California swore me in as an attorney, and January 4, 2015 the night a triage nurse checked me into the Los Robles Hospital Emergency Room near death, if you asked me about myself I’d tell you straight up, “I am [...]
I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.

As of today, we have been without electricity for 6 days. It began last Tuesday around midnight. There was a loud banging noise, and then the lights flickered ominously once or twice, and then the silence desceneded. No gentle hum of the heater. No buzz of the refrigerator. It was dead quiet, except for the [...]
On February 11th, the anniversary of my father's open heart surgery, I leaned against the kitchen counter and scrolled through my father's photo library on his phone while my mother formed ground turkey into burger patties. There we were at Tahoe for Thanksgiving a few years ago... There were pictures of my parents wandering around [...]
