#JeSuisCharlie, Ahmed, & the World

No pictures today. Just words. The last week has been rough, especially since the Paris shootings which took place this past Wednesday (also my son Jack’s tenth birthday).

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

I wasn’t going to write this post. I thought of twenty reasons why I shouldn’t, why I couldn’t, and that I didn’t have to, especially since it deals with a bit of controversy. In the end, my heart, speaking ever so quietly as it ofttimes does, reminded me that for change...

Look! It’s a book…in a tree!

Yes, I am  trying to distract you all. I have nothing to write today. All has been quiet on the western front the past couple of days. The most fun thing I’ve done is go to the library, which for me is quite a lot of fun actually. I get lost...

Wednesday Ramblings

I thought I’d give a little update about the goings-on here at Chez Lunatic since it’s actually been some time since I’ve posted much of anything really. I don’t know why traveling takes something out of you but it does, and last week was spent trying to catch up with things...

Still Here

Hi everyone! I just wanted to post a short note to let you all know that I am actually here. I did make it back home in one piece but have been busy ever since. Why is it that you take a vacation to get a rest but then you need...
