A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


The Good Old Days -1 Feb 2006

Here’s a little something I wrote the other day:

The Good Old Days
By Mary T. Hoffman

Many of us, as time passes,
Look back through rose-colored glasses,
And speak in awe of “good old days,”
Disparaging most present ways.

When we were born doesn’t matter,
Even if life is getting better;
When folks turn old and gray,
Nostalgia still holds sway.

Folks in the future will reminisce,
Telling their kids how they miss
These “good old days” so full of bliss.
