Friday’s Top Four Faves

Movie: Inside Out (2016) I'm increasingly astounded by the stories that the big animated studios have been releasing recently. While this was primarily marketed as a children's story, it had a lot more depth than its ancestors such as Madagascar or Cars. The movie helps children (and their parents) learn about their emotions and memories. It … Continue reading Friday’s Top Four Faves

2084 [Worldbuilding Wednesday]

The world ended on 2084. The Earth didn't explode or get hit by a giant meteor. The sun and the moon were still spinning in their celestial tracks. The zombie plague had not gone viral. In fact, those few who had survived the end of the world often scratched their heads after and asked, "How … Continue reading 2084 [Worldbuilding Wednesday]

On the morning of the fourth day, a boy monk came to the master and asked him, "how can you be so silent for such a length of time with such wisdom as yours?" The master answered with silence. The boy asked him, "I … Continue reading A Secret of Silence

Plans [Poem]

Plans get made to be broken; So now I don't often make 'em. Plans shared about my mission; So, "It's only genie lamp wishin'." Plans to change the whole entire world; So towards a risk filled life I hurtled. Plans to check off all of my to dos; So I'm just laid back counting fish … Continue reading Plans [Poem]
