Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert A shape with lion body and the head of … Continue reading The Second Coming- William Butler Yeats

The Telsa Falcon X space launch went down this week in Cap Canaveral, Florida. NASA isn’t very far from my location, so I get to actually see the rockets launched into space right outside the window. Pretty cool! One moment please. I must listen to the Stranger Things season 2 soundtrack while writing this lol. BRB! Alright, on to the post! Are aliens real? It’s an age old argument. Do I believe there is alien life on other planets within the universe and beyond? I can’t really say for sure. Being a Christian, I find it a little … Continue reading Is There Life On Other Planets?
Once upon a time there was a television series called Gilmore Girls. A series which featured a mother/daughter relationship more perfect then those in a Hallmark film. The town of Stars Hollow featured a genre of characters the mother/daughter tag team duo encountered almost every day. One character who is normally the butt of the joke is Kirk, yet Kirk’s character has more meaning then implied. To be Frank, Kirk is less then ordinary. He still lives at home and doesn’t do much, yet ponders life wherever he goes. Kirk is the type of guy you run away from … Continue reading Why Stories Need Secondary Characters Like Kirk

Modern day Americans love celebrities. In a bizarre way electing celebrities for important political roles seems like our new normal. Donald Trump may take credit for opening the flood gates, yet it didn’t actually start with him. John F Kennedy was behind the genesis of this event. The Kennedy’s were basically American royalty. Even the British monarchy desired their swag. Some could also argue the phenomena began with Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt or even George Washington. Barack Obama wasn’t exactly a movie star, yet his success brought him into the spotlight of a Frank Sinatra. Bill Clinton played his saxophone … Continue reading Is Oprah Winfrey Running for Oval Office?
