A Man's Feelings: Finding Closure after Divorce (Book) - 8/19/2010 3:20:41 PM
Michael, it's about time we heard it from a man's point of view. The women are always telling their side.Never thought men felt anything after a divorce, thought they just replaced her with another and moved on.
So you're saying there are mountains to climb, valleys, sorrow and pain? Men who are divorced always seem to bounce back pretty quickly.
This touched me. Thanks for sharing a side of men that is not so macho, but a touch of vulnerability, yet without a loss of image.
I glanced at a title of one of your poems while writing this. Wow! Michael, I'm touched. Think I go read some more of your words.

I hope I never need your book, Michael, but after hearing your audio message and reading additional information on your www.bookondivorce.com, I would recommend it others that have gone through or are now going through the tragedy of Divorce.

The World in debt! (Short Story) - 9/16/2011 10:31:48 PM
I feel your pain and like the poetic style of your message. To paraphrase Doctor Evil from Austin Powers: "Why spend billions when you can spend trillions." Nice work Mr. Eads.
Michelle Bachmann is Nuts! (Short Story) - 9/14/2011 9:30:34 AM
Good one Mike, I agree.
Michelle Bachmann is Nuts! (Short Story) - 8/19/2011 8:24:30 AM
I appreciate your acknowledgement of my first amendment rights. But if you want to play hardball with me my friend you had better bring a bigger bat. It does take guts to run for president. But it doesn’t take any guts to be stupid. Case in point: on the 34th anniversary of the great Elvis Presley’s death, your Michelle Bachmann wished him a happy birthday. Okay that’s an honest mistake. But what about getting the great actor (John Wayne) mixed up with the serial killer John Wayne Gacy. There is nothing worse in this life than being destroyed by your own words. Michelle Bachmann has absolutely no chance of becoming president. All she has to do is keep talking and the American people will realize there’s no cure for stupid.

Divorce Amplifies Holiday Loneliness (Short Story) - 12/7/2009 4:48:24 PM
Very nice article! It's refreshing to hear postive male advise, that does not center around finding a rebound. I think alot of the pain comes from feeling that we are not needed. When a man feels like he is needed and competent to come through for someone, he feels like a hero, and there are so many people out there that need you. Not just helping serve food or donating your money, but really need you - you personally. There is a service, Creating Extended Families, that matches adults platonically to create extended family relationships, and there are surprising number of young adults who are looking for older positive male role models. It's like mentoring, but for adults. You are not financially responsible for anyone, & you don't have to deal with teenage angst, just forge a relationship with someone who needs you.

Who Killed Romance (Short Story) - 5/25/2009 7:25:14 AM
I thoroughly enjoyed your views in "Who Killed Romance". I agree with your warm genuine smile theory. Some of MY most memorable relationships with men have been instigated by a warm genuine smile, extended by a sincere listening ear, and completely enjoyed though they were brief, innocent and public encounters.

A Man's Feelings (excerpt Three) (Article) - 9/22/2009 2:53:08 AM
Expressing your feelings through writing is a wonderful way to deal with trauma and challenges in your life. I've written in journals and kept diaries throughout my life and have found that they are a wonderful outlet. I've encouraged my children to do the same...when they can't come to me or anybody else.

Identity erased! (Poetry) - 8/19/2010 3:29:01 PM
As I said in another post, this poem caught my eye, "Identity Erased."
I was drawn in by the title and stayed to the end.
This reminds me of how important it is to take time out for others, look beyond what you see and hear them say. Too often we brush each other off. We don't really hear.
Thanks for sharing those words that makes one think an appreciate.
Identity erased! (Poetry) - 6/26/2010 5:41:53 PM
