Frayed

I saw something today that has stuck with me.  I had dropped my daughter off and was grabbing a quick bite on my way to work when I saw a man and a little girl, bundled up and standing beside the entrance to the place I was going with a sign. I didn’t get a… Continue reading Frayed

I Won’t Give In To Fear

Say it with me now, I won’t give in to fear.  Doesn’t that feel good? Gets the blood moving.  Gets the spirits up.  HALLELUJAH! The world is a scary place and it is full of rabble-rousers who want nothing more than to weaponize ignorance and fear for their own gain. They want to stoke fear… Continue reading I Won’t Give In To Fear

Keep Talking

Human communication is an ever evolving animal. It changes as we change and adapts to our needs and our new means of telling our tales. We are always telling our stories, whatever they may be. In words, in songs, in image, or in word. We need to relay how we feel, what we see, and… Continue reading Keep Talking

Not That Hard

It’s hard to take our American culture seriously at times. Especially our moral outrage. I saw this in the 1980’s with music and the fear that the devil was influencing kids as they sat listening to music in their rooms. Then there was the fear of role playing games. The fear of video games. The… Continue reading Not That Hard

Out of Sight

Anyone that has read my blog for any length of time - anyone? Anyone? - will know that I come back to topics from time to time that feel important to get some attention. Somet things, as they say, are worth repeating. Recognition is great.  It’s needed.  It’s necessary.  We need to know what we… Continue reading Out of Sight

We Already Know Where We’re Going

Sometimes you head somewhere, thinking you are just out for a drive when deep down you already have a destination in mind. We head out in our vehicle and we just let the wind rush through the windows, we turn up the tunes, and we zone out and just sorta let the road unfold before… Continue reading We Already Know Where We’re Going

Baby Games

You would think it’d be tiresome by now, wouldn’t you, the hand-wringing and dire pronouncements about how superhero movies are KILLING CINEMA!  AND CULTURE! AND THE WORLD! Like, these are movies, man, is it all that dramatic? Really? I have talked about this in other blogs and as I said there, I get the dislike… Continue reading Baby Games

Woke Up This Way

You can tell we are at the edge of the world when troll culture has gone so far off the board that they are outraged about the casting of a FANTASY TELEVISION SERIES! In what world are we living where this is a thing that matters? In what world are we in that there are… Continue reading Woke Up This Way

False Idols

There is something chilling about a political party that pretends to be very pious and devout to the Christian faith following a false idol. How many times have we heard the lectures that the Antichrist is coming and that they are among us now? How many times have we heard religious leaders more interested in… Continue reading False Idols

Digging Up Graves

I have to be honest that I am a little curious whether everyone understands that all of us has a past. I keep seeing that folks decide from time to time to target this person or that and then dig, dig, dig into their lives - it’s so easy if you’re a celebrity because so… Continue reading Digging Up Graves

The Con Game Carries On – It’s Harder Than It Looks Edition

It’s been a bit of time since I have been to a convention as a ‘fan’. Since I became a vendor I tend to not want to go unless I am vending or, well, behind the scenes. I don’t have the sort of available funds to buy up all the awesome things I want or… Continue reading The Con Game Carries On – It’s Harder Than It Looks Edition

The Chasm of But

There is a giant chasm that lies between what we Know and what we Don’t Know. A lot can get lost there. There is the old adage that the victors of a war tell the future the facts and the story, and it’s left to us and the people past us to decide how ‘true’… Continue reading The Chasm of But

Broken All This Time

Looking at the world around us, it’s hard not to wonder if we, as a species have finally broken or if we’ve been broken all this time.  Take a moment and look around.  It isn’t just the ‘street people’ who talk to themselves now, it’s a lot of us.  Our moods have shifted, our attitudes… Continue reading Broken All This Time
