They saw a man who looked to be in his seventies: small, slightly... read more »
Okay, that was the most obnoxious blog post title I’ve ever composed, but I’m going to leave it because I’m proud of my cowboy heritage and the sequined chaps in my top drawer.
Was that out loud?

Μία λέξη μόνο είναι αρκετή και η μνήμη ανασαλεύει. Για εκείνα τα καταραμένα χρόνια που ο τούρκος έπεσε σαν αγρίμι να μας φάει. Και μας έφαγε τελικά, μας ήπιε το αίμα, μας πετσόκοψε, μας εξολόθρευσε, μας ξερίζωσε από την αγαπημένη μας γη, την Πατρίδα μας, τον Πόντο.read more »

I’m a theatre lighting designer. We take 3-6 weeks to think about a design. Every instrument is carefully positioned, focused and plotted.

Once upon a time, long ago in a land far away (so keep your feminist panties on) there was a wise and powerful king. As despots go, he wasn’t a bad one. Within the context of his time, he was as benevolent as kings get. He cared for his country and his subjects, took his responsibilities as a rul...read more »

Christ hath purchased peace for his people; and what Christ hath purchased for them, God the Father is engaged to give unto them. Read the purchase in Eph. 2:13-14, “But now in Christ Jesus, ye who were sometimes afar off, are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made...

Somehow, in the last year or so, I’ve become a major fashion whore. Despite working at home – where no one ever sees me – unless you count fish, a pair of parakeets and an ugly, yet somehow super cute dog (pictured above) – I’ve become more and more obsessed with shopping. Don’t get me wrong. I’...read more »

Often when I’m writing or editing a story, a song gets played on repeat for what feels like hours to my family. I end up with earbuds in, listening to a song and soaking up the feeling I get from it. For today that song has been Lovesong (along with a few others), the cover performed by Adele.
