Recently my friends and I played volleyball. It was a fun and competitive series of games.
Later that month I gathered many of the same late-night friends for another series of games. Even though it was after midnight I had the same expectations as the previous evening: I was looking forward to the same fun, competitive games.
We lost the first closely contested game. We dominated the second game as their team laughed and clowned around as they played sometimes sloppily. I prefer to win, but I actually felt sorry for one of their teammates who was evidently annoyed.

Who will we trust in the calamities of life?
As I read Torn by Jud Wilhite I kept having a song running through my head. Perhaps most of the audience this book might attract will not know the 90s band Soundgarden, but “Fell On Black Days” played through my mind on repeat.
“Fell On Black Days“
Whatsoever I’ve feared has
Come to life
Whatsoever I’ve fought off
Became my life
Just when everyday
Seemed to greet
Me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
And now I’m doing time
Cause I fell on
