Promises

Promises, promises. Is that the same as commitment? If so, this is a word that instills terror. It’s a word that hangs over one like Damocles Blade. This is because, hell, they are so hard to keep. I’m not talking about the little ones, like promising to join my neighbor for tonight’s jazz show. Nah, that’s not a promise. That’s just an assent. A promise is something big, weighty, important. It has power, it has heft, it can move and change situations and people.
