Today I found an ice cream shop that was selling black ice cream cones.
I've never seen a black ice cream cone before in my entire life.

My awakening began with two simple experiences. The first came through touching wet granite.
I am a writer by trade. Add to this occupation the average person’s basic online consumption, and the result is, I find myself in front of screens for long periods of my day. While finishing a recent book...Read more of this blog post »
Hollywood movies are a lot different today than they once were. We could almost always count on the fact, no matter how dark the story, there would be some type of redemption, motivating message, or justice at the end. But that’s not true anymore.
