Picture courtesy of techwyse.com


Many may wonder, what is sin? Yes. Why there is a need to understand the concept of reward and punishment? As we move along life’s road as living sinners, we might wonder what is it actually is.

I’m on my way back from a quick trip to New Orleans to visit the set of the Magicians show.


This goes partway to explaining why I’m so hungover and underslept. There were other contributing factors. But we can definitely identify that as the root cause.

First: I want to wish everyone who celebrates it a Happy Thanksgiving! (In Canada, we celebrate in October). Second: I’m sorry I’ve been off-line. Technically, I’m still off-line, but I get the sense that people are beginning to worry, so I wanted to quickly say: I’m alive. November 2014 has not... Read more of this blog post »

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.

You live your life as if it’s real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.
