The Second Coming- William Butler Yeats

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!

Is Oprah Winfrey Running for Oval Office?

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.

Like many  young women in her day, Mary’s future was pretty much chosen for her. Her parents decided she’d merry … Continue reading Resolution Within the Nativity Story

Transparency

Recently I watched The Circle. Merci Amazon Prime membership. The Circle is basically about a company that fully embraced social networking. They believed all people no matter of height, weight, gender, religion or political motive should be fully transparent. This  film didn’t do very well with a majority of its audience. Personally I enjoyed the film and thought it brought up a very important question. In the digital age transparency seems normal. We share things about ourselves online through a video or even a blog post like you’re reading right now. At least I hope your reading lol. As we … Continue reading Transparency
