What Dreams May Come…

What Dreams May Come…

It seems my words may be coming back. I woke up crying from a dream I don’t remember and the first four lines of this in my head. After  ten continuing minutes, and ultimate uselessness in trying to go back to sleep, the grinding gears inside my head refused to shut up, so up I …

(Spoiler Alert) Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Review

I’m going to try and get through this without too many spoilers but there are some that will crop up. You have been warned. Stop reading any further if you don’t want to know more. Skip down to the end though because I’ve added a new poem. Last Friday I went to see the new …

Shakespeare Had It Right

Shakespeare Had It Right

You’ll be seeing two separate posts today. One for yesterday that I completely missed, and today’s current one (which may come later today). Yesterday was Tornado’s birthday and I was busy beyond belief. Plus, we have begun storm season in the DFW metroplex and lately we’ve been getting a lot of rain. I haven’t actually …

The Tea Thief: Who Really Did it

I know he’s not British (he’s Canadien), but wouldn’t that be a fantastic commercial to see, a North American …

Happy 450th William!

Happy 450th William!

I had meant to write this post yesterday, but, after spending two days getting to know a stomach virus pretty intimately, I had a lot of work to catch up on. So, as Friday’s are supposed to be for Features I am going to make this Friday all about Shakespeare. Why? Firstly, because, ahem, look …

Birthdays

Birthdays

This past Sunday we celebrated the Tornado’s third birthday. We didn’t spend a lot of money on it, didn’t buy a lot of presents, and it was just us. And yet, he was happy. At this age it really isn’t about the quantity of gifts or how many people are there. Ryan doesn’t care how …

New Ways of Thinking

New Ways of Thinking

“Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different.” William James I read an article today that I found rather interesting. I’m coming in late to the …
