St. Patrick’s Day

Today  being St. Patrick Day  is a bit ironic, because today will be the final day I visit my late grandparents home. I hardly remember the last time I was at their home when they were both still alive. I have not been over to their home since my grandmother past in mid October.  My grandfather had  a wee bit of Irish blood, so it’s a bit comforting that this holiday would occur on this solemn  day. They’d argue a lot, so perhaps I’ll get lucky and remember one of their tussles while exploring their estate for a final time. … Continue reading St. Patrick’s Day

March TBR Plus Barnes and Noble Book Haul

Who else thinks going to Barnes and Noble is like traveling to Narnia or Neverland? The joy this store brings me is massive. I’m a little late to reveal my March TBR, but here is. I also have some photos from my trip to Hollywood Studios or shall I call it Star Wars Studios? On Tuesday I went to Hollywood Studios. It felt so much smaller with a lot of the park under construction for the upcoming Star Wars additions. I had not been to Hollywood Studios in a while. I really like the set up for this park. They … Continue reading March TBR Plus Barnes and Noble Book Haul

What is Love?

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1st Corinthians 13:4-7    Since it’s Valentine’s Day or better yet the “Week of Love” A group of children at a local elementary school were asked what they thought love is. One boy said that love is difficult to explain. He’s exactly right. … Continue reading What is Love?

Pats Stun the Falcons

During the game I sent out this tweet. Today I look back at it and laugh. I can't see this New England team pulling off this deficit. Crazier things have happen tho. — Matt Wells (@GarnetNGold22) February 6, 2017 Leading up to this match up, I kept going back and forth on who I thought would win. At first I thought New England. Everything seem to go their way this season after the ridicules deflate-gate scandal. On the other hand, the Atlanta Falcons are a team not to be reckoned with. Atlanta is loaded, so I finally decided that Atlanta … Continue reading Pats Stun the Falcons

Criticism is a Tough Pill to Swallow

Recently I found myself an editor. I was truly grateful to finally have an editor, because most tales I write are only seen by my  own two eyes. It felt great, finding someone with experience in the business to review my ideas. I guess it is expected, yet I thought my editor would enjoy my plot and give some praise right away. On the other hand, I got criticized and shown more fault than perfection within my rough draft. Criticism really is a tough pill to shallow. When I was first told about the mistakes I felt a bit of … Continue reading Criticism is a Tough Pill to Swallow
