Jesus and me

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« On this subject there is nothing important that differentiates me from Jesus. Dear kind readers: That’s Jesus the manager of La Placita in my barrio not the Christian savior. Sincerely, Tom Doody. Jesus is from Peru, I think Lima, and he passes through PABT with greater regularity than me, so is it ¿Possible? that Jesus overlooks the super-mega sized TV at PABT playing FIFA twenty-four-seven. At this moment it is probably not possible, because I told Jesus last night just before he started his trip home to Queens. Transit hubs, like the White House, are magnets for attracting negative attention from the trauma in people’s lives. It is common missed buses and clogged Lincoln Tunnel generate belly-aching contemptuous: “Port Authority”. ¿Daily? yes, probably hourly. PABT is an uninspiring space Hana and I call the homeless dormitory, but this TV has transformed the space. FIFA excitement is building, and at least Jesus won’t miss the rare moments of PABT fun. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

Trump’s wall

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« When Melania denounced mass-kid-parent separation on Sunday I expected the White House to fold, but they instead reinforced their policy. Seems Trump will do anything to get his way on the Southern Border Wall. The crying kids recorded through chain-linked fence is terrible, and to hear the Homeland Secretary say she has not heard the recording makes it worse. The recording went viral got headlines, and she’s speaking publicly on the subject, and she can’t even admit to hearing it. If Trump is willing to weather this storm he created he’ll probably get his wall. I’m trying to reconcile. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

Father’s Day

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Father’s day challenge: once being a father of three, David’s death made me a father of two, and those two don’t talk to me. Can I find the ¿Joy? of Father’s Day. Yesterday my answer was, “yes”. In a series of events that can only play out with chance I talked to my brother this week after learning Ryan was a university graduate. In that call my brother expressed a sense of my hardship as a father. Yesterday I left a voicemail message for my brother: “this week I sensed you might think it’s difficult for me to find the joy of Father’s Day . . . it’s true I once was a father of three, and David’s death made me a father of two, and those two don’t talk to me, but I have good reason to believe their lives are tracking someplace good, and today I am feeling the joy of Father’s Day, and I share that with you, happy Father’s Day to you, and in his first Father’s Day as a father your son, Bill. Though I have reconciled with my hardship, and I’m able to unpack happiness today it occurs to me my hardship might have kept distance between my brother and me. His suspected thinking of me not coping with hardship might have sustained distance. Father’s Day felt joyous. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

drunk drivers; angry teens

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« I learned recently my brother focuses on my stroke that split me from my siblings with a high-water mark here. While I agree my stroke was the beginning of the end of my first marriage I found my siblings engaging until the end of my first marriage. These divergent explanations will not be reconciled nor do they need to be reconciled. During this time my first-born, David, died, and my daughter and youngest, Ryan finished University. From social media and my calculations Ryan finished university in three years, and was on the dean’s list all semesters. Erin also finished with high grades. In addition Ryan posted public media that indicates his studies match his interest and skills. Since I split with their mother each of them became silent to me with a couple of noteworthy explosions of anger on telephone calls most notably David expressed anger with increasing intensity and frequency before he died. I enjoyed popularity in my own house and community while I was married to their mother, but after leaving and surrendering popularity my determination to discipline overshadowed my hope of popularity. The following analogy compares a drunk driver to one of my angry teens and compares a sober and alert driver to me. I imagine myself green-lighted accelerating first into an intersection when I realize the car to my right is not going to stop. With quick reflexes I accelerate feeling and hearing the high-speed drunk driver scratch his or her car on my rear bumper. In my private thoughts processing the trauma I can imagine crediting myself for preventing a collision. It’s a stretch to credit myself in a conversation, because no one earns credit for the collision that did not happen. This is how I feel about being an out-of-state dad. In private moments like now I validate myself with credit for getting out of David, Erin, and Ryan’s way, and it feels good and deserved. To take a bow or solicit external validation would feel wrong, so aside from this blog I won’t take a bow. No one should applaud me for not getting hit by a drunk driver, and no one should applaud me for not impeding the progress of David, Erin, or Ryan. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Dear kind readers who know nothing about soccer: ONE: the World Cup does not happen every year, but it does this year . . . NOW . . just started TWO: it’s in Russia THREE: USA has qualified in past years, but USA did not qualify this year FOUR: Brazil is the only team to qualify every year FIVE: the Word Cup starts with group play, and with the condense TV score it will say, “group” with a letter in the early part of the alphabet SIX: for you, people, who don’t know soccer, you don’t have to even try to care about group play SEVEN: one team from each group advances to single-elimination play, which is when you, people who don’t care about soccer, might want to pay a little attention. EIGHT: each team represents a country, so it’s easier to follow than the not-World-Cup soccer NINE: the countries that play soccer or don’t and play baseball, or cricket is a product of colonization TEN: colonization was ¿Bad? por supuesto it was bad, but colonization was a boost for the world of sports, because colonization put the world on track to playing fewer sports than we would be playing if all modern sports evolved from tribes. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
