“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.  It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”

-Arthur Ashe

At its heart, heroism is when one exhibits an action that fulfills a higher purpose through a structured nobility.  It is at its core, courage that is exemplified when facing a malevolent situation.  Heroism isn’t a characteristic that is sought or even sustained for that matter.  It is presupposed that genuine heroic action is accomplished in the defense of moral integrity. The heart of heroism challenges the darkness of evil with a voluntary mechanism that attacks its wicked vulnerability with full-blown compassion. To sum it up it one sentence, heroism is the elixir of hate.

From here, I choose to leave you guessing which way I take this post. For now, I am cutting it short because it is the one weekend where I can make decisions in an outward manner.  I’m on my way to somewhere I have never been on this beautiful day, maybe I will see you there.

Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads out there.  This one’s for all of you out there living your dream.


Post Script:

I can’t believe that this blog has made it six months. That is the longest I have committed to anything, other than getting drunk on love.

This post will be continued soon.  Thank you all so much for your patronage, patience, and understanding.

See You Soon.


My roots are buried in the Dirty South. I grew up learning the importance of God and Southern Charm. I began writing in my late teens mostly through heartbreak and music. I moved out west 15 years ago and live right around the corner from the Fountain Of Youth. Most people refer to it as Lake Tahoe. I play Chef during the day and search for ways to save the world by night, through reading, writing, and believing. I enjoy the side of life that is less abrasive. I look forward to joining you on my quest through Spiritual Sobriety with the Promised Land as our ultimate destination.
