Everyone struggles with having enough time to do everything they want or need to do. For a person who has an outside job, one where they drive or walk to, clock in and clock out, they know when they will have down time and know when they have to be working.

For the creative person or any other pe... Read more of this blog post »

I came across an article titled "5 Haunted and Cursed Paintings You Should Never Hang in Your Home" on The Occult Museum website, and I thought it was pretty interesting, so of course I had to share it here. No matter how much you love art, you definitely don't want to own the following paintings... Read more of this blog post »

No Eclipse Crowds at All…

In fact, this weekend has less traffic and people than a normal August weekend. The hype and all the warnings clearly scared people away. Hotels have empty rooms, the roads are like a winter week-day.


Every business, hotel, restaurant, and store was staffed up with people...

I always get a little nervous when people bring the Bible into conversations about hate speech. Not because I’m afraid of what people will find in the Bible, but because of the increased tendency to weaponize anything that doesn’t fit with the prevailing worldview.

The Man Fell to Earth was the Silver Surfer, but that’s being a bit facetious. I found this slow going at first with its focus on a future African/Nigerian culture, but I cannot fault the world-building here. Another thing that slows this down is that habit Gene Wolfe has of getting characters to... Read more of this blog post »

Super excited about the eclipse tomorrow, but worried about your eyeballs? You’re not alone. My physicist husband wouldn’t trust anything short of a welder’s glasses with a suitably high rating, and even then he’d merely feel reassured that he could quantify the damage, nothing else.

Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing.
