The Rest of the Moose

Adapting an epic novel for the stage can be a tricky proposition. Unless you plan on doing a two-part, eight hour show (like the 1980s epic NICHOLAS NICKLEBY) you will likely have to make cuts to the story and perhaps excise characters or storylines completely (see also: LES MISERABLES). NICKLEBY and LES MIS are contrasts […]

THE BIG IDEA: It turns out the deep state wasn’t so deep. The resistance was coming from inside the White House. President Trump repeatedly made his own top aides, appointees and advisers uncomfortable by making requests that they found unethical, legally questionable or otherwise inappropriate as he sought to gain some control over the federal investigation […]

No Blog for Old Men

I’m a firm believer that happiness is the the true secret of the universe. Especially in the final days of college before venturing out into the “real world” I have been asked often what success means to me, and frankly I think one’s own values of success is rooted in their own happiness. The beauty […]

the surreal notes

I walked in through the large iron-gate which creaked in earthy brown, the hue gifted by time. It was still the cobbled road where my memories ran, whose footprints were laid on my heart. Thick green bushes with flowers of orange like the afternoon sun that glowed upon me. I took every step with the […]

The Dancing Bardess

This has been a very momentous week. Momentous not in great memories, but in events. Take this past Monday, for example. April 15th. At 2:20 a.m., 116 years ago, the great steam-liner Titanic slipped beneath the waves of the icy Atlantic, sending 1,503 people to a watery grave. At 7 p.m., April 15th, 2019, the […]

There can be few more special places to start a leg of a long journey than Santa Fe, NM, and few finer hosts than my dear friends Chris & Lisa Harrell of the Santa Fe Labyrinth Resources Group (of course, there are other perfect hosts too that look after me well!). The Santa Fe Saturday […]

GBAM!

“You may now come and pay your last respects to our brother and son, Albert” intoned the smallish bald headed pastor who looked like he was performing an overly rehearsed drama as though he needed to act as required to elicit the appropriate emotion from the congregation. “Oya, go and see your husband for the […]

Goodwin's Garbled Garrulity

At what stage did the casual, lighter fare that I watch become so tricky to keep up with? Plot lines that seem to last for weeks and weeks, plus a myriad of characters whose faces I barely recognise? No thank you. It’s time for some television series to adapt what they are doing and reassess […]

ErinG's Blog

Prior to addressing the discussion points for this blog, I want to get some closure on my topic by sharing surprising information on how deep and unfair the compensation inequalities exist for minorities and possible reasons for its existence. Since this provided me with a much greater understanding of the issues, I want to share […]

It has only been a few years since the issue of alternate sexualities has managed to enter the mainstream consciousness. Man has always been a creature of habit, and whenever something goes out of the way, the natural reaction of human beings is to stigmatize it and keep it under the wraps. This tendency has […]

Dear Ben Lyrics by Loyle Carner I’ve watched you grow From first kick, to first kiss Shoulder rides to sleepless nights Felt tip crows to scoring goals, and bedtime Katamino Watched you hold your own from boy to man As you stand firm, bare and bold Not afraid to walk alone Reveal your pain. Unique. […]
