A tale I heard

Musician Bruce Springsteen on what it takes to be a good man:

"I guess, really… I probably learned the best answers to that from my mother. My mother was basically decent, compassionate, strong, wilful. She insisted on creating a world where she could make her children feel as safe as possible, even though she certainly had her faults in that area. But she was consistent. You could count on her. Day after day after day. And she was very strong. The best part of me picked up a lot of those characteristics and I struggle to live up to them today. So I think dependability, strength, wilfulness… put in the service of something good – those are the things that matter to me."

A tale I saw

The Job of Paradise by Roger Robinson

A tale I wrote

Ryan doodled
a self portrait.
He liked
the smile
he’d given
but didn’t
enjoy lying.
