Sometimes I’ve thought I “knew” what God was doing, leading me to places, meeting certain people, etc. But the longer I live, the more I realize how little I really understand what He is doing in and through my life. Yet, as the old hymn “Be Still My Soul” says, “in every change, He faithful […]
A Trick of the Glaze Music filled the empty bar, the low sound bouncing off the dark paneled walls. Deep red booths sat vacant, waiting for the buzz of the night to come. This place was dead. It always was this early. My phone buzzed in my back pocket. The one nice thing about being […]

Two days ago I wrote a post about Taran Tactical training Halle Berry, and it was not well received here or over at SayUncle. I might as well go for broke on this. According to Taran Butler’s website, he’s got a wealth of wins on the pro shooting circuit in IDPA, 3-Gun, USPSA and others. […]
“One of the challenges, that the brain does not work at all like a computer, also provides us with an opportunity: the possibility of new modes of interaction that allow us to take advantage of the complementary talents of humans and machines.” – The Invisible Computer By Don Norman Photo from CUNY NYC DATA Introduction: […]
Almost exactly a month ago, I shared a blog post featuring the outfit-of-the-day photos I recently started taking in my stereotypical over-the-door college mirror. As you probably suspected, I wear a lot more outfits than just the two I post weekly on Graceful Rags, so this gives me an opportunity to showcase more of my […]

Here’s all you need to know. (But read on anyway): Few Onion articles address New Jersey stuff. New Jersey: A state which vacillated “are we In or Out?” during the American Revolution, despite the absence in the mid to late 1700’s of any sizable Italian demographic.

‘John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum’ is a vibrant, vivacious visual veneer, painting over the crippling imperfections that have defined action films for decades, like a balm.
I am sure one could find faults in the 3rd installment of Keanu Reeves’s ‘John Wick’ film franchise, but you would have had to find them days after your mind stops reeling in thoroughly entertained awe.
I love the films wickedness as one is meant to adore those dark things in the black: in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
Adidas launches new spring colors in the trefoil tee. *Roselyn runs to buy all of them 🙂 BUT in my defense I really do love how comfy and versatile they are and will be wearing them so many different ways so I will definitely get a lot of use out of them. Today I am […]
