What Would You Do For a Klondike Bar?

Watching EVIL on Netflix. Interesting… It’s the metaphor of the perpetual battle of Good vs Evil through the filters of the Catholic Church vs the Demonic Heirarchy. That isn’t the point of it though, that’s just the vehicle for the stories. The point is that we make choices, that we choose the influences that help …

Science vs Faith is not a thing.

My dad, a scientist, once said, “I don’t need faith, I’ve got knowledge!” I think it was a response to my asking him to have a little faith in me. It was, however, his scientist-mindset that defined and justified–to him–his attitude. Scientists seek knowledge, or as close as they can get to something they can …

The Serpent & The Saint It’s a book!

A question that bounced around my head for a while, triggered by Saint Patrick’s Day and his associated myths: How exactly did St Patrick ‘drive all the snakes out of Ireland? History actually has some answers for the sources of this folk tale, but before I knew that, an idea came to me. It took …

Time Does What Only Time Can Do

Patience is a casualty of this age of immediate information and too-ready opinionating. On Wednesday, Jan 6, 2021, as all the mayhem played out, conjecture and personal interpretation flew in all directions.

The Wind

You cannot see the wind.    It moves the trees,    pushes clouds across the sky,     surges waves across the lake and sea; You can hear it–    whispering through the forest,    whistling ’round windows and chimney pots    mourning over hollows in the land; You can witness    as it tears the world by shreds    of gossamer and flying signs,    sends dust spiraling up into a summer …
