Fear

by Gary Dyksterhouse "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

by Kim Pillow When Mary Dudley was in kindergarten, I can vividly remember Jan Locke with her glowing smile telling me one day in the Pillow carpool line , "Kim, enjoy it, it flies by so fast!" Jan's daughter was a senior in high school at the time. I pulled off and thought, "Psh, I've got sooo many years left." Now I know what many of you know, as the years go by, they d...
