Cross, Massachusetts

     Doctor Harvey Cushing lit his pipe and nodded his thanks to Duncan Blood as the man handed him a cup of coffee. The farmer had added a fair amount of brandy to it, and Harvey, no stranger to strong drink, coughed.      “Damn, Duncan,” Harvey said after he cleared his throat several […]

Ananke and Eos

The Witchcraft of Revelations Murin collapsed in the mud. Tears blinded her and emotions thrashed inside her, slipped up the strands of her muscles. It smothered her voice like sand on fire. She tried to pull herself up, but the mud was like mortar, entombing. She rolled over on her hands and knees. That much […]

SHEROO//WRITING

Below are the four best poems from my creative writing class this fall. I submitted them in a final portfolio after much revision, deliberation, and frustration. They range in form, style, diction, and subject; they are listed in no particular order (although I saved my favorite for last). I hope to continue exploring poetry.   […]

Fish Out of Closet

Have you ever found that there’s a crucial basic missing from your closet and wonder how could you’ve lived for years without owning one. For me it was a basic, black sweater. How?? It’s the most classic of staple pieces and makes layering 10x easier. I feel a bit silly for not having one for […]

The Unconventional Banter

Having grown up in a fiercely independent environment which demanded me to follow exactly what I believed in, joining the journey to care for stray animals proved to be quite an unexpected struggle. It took a while for my rebellious self to realize that the general public will not always appreciate acts of kindness, especially […]

The BELOVED

When the people came to apprehend Christ, they fell to the ground when Jesus said, ‘I am he.’ And if they could not bear the sight of Christ when clothed with the rags of mortality, how will they hear the sight of him when he is on his Father’s throne? Methinks I see the poor wretches dragged out of their graves by the devil; methinks I see them trembling, crying out to the hills and rocks to cover them. But the devil will say, Come, I will take you away; and then they shall stand trembling before the judgment-seat of Christ. They shall appear before him to see him once, and hear him pronounce that irrevocable sentence, ‘Depart from me, ye cursed.’ Methinks I hear the poor creatures saying, Lord, if we must be damned, let some angel pronounce the sentence. No, the God of love, Jesus Christ, will pronounce it. Will ye not believe this? Do not think I am talking at random, but agreeably to the Scriptures of truth.

If you do not, then show yourselves men, and this morning go away with full resolution, in the strength of God, to cleave to Christ. And may you have no rest in your souls till you rest in Jesus Christ! I could still go on, for it is sweet to talk of Christ. Do you not long for the time when you shall have new bodies _ when they shall be immortal, and made like Christ’s glorious body? And then they will talk of Jesus Christ for evermore. But it is time, perhaps, for you to go and prepare for your respective worship, and I would not hinder any of you. My design is, to bring poor sinners to Jesus Christ. O that God may bring some of you to himself! May the Lord Jesus now dismiss you with his blessing, and may the dear Redeemer convince you that are unawakened, and turn the wicked from the evil of their way! And may the love of God, that passeth all understanding, fill your hearts. Grant this, O Father, for Christ’s sake; to whom, with thee and the blessed Spirit, be all honor and glory, now and for evermore.

Amen.

I wrote this in my writing journal after a trip to the beautiful, mountainous region of Oman. If you ever get a chance to visit, I highly recommend it. It’s a beautiful part of the world & during the winter season, the mountain roads are engulfed with mist. It was a perfect setting for a […]

Short Fiction by J. Lender

“selective focus photography of full moon” by Laura Skinner on Unsplash By J. Lender “Why isn’t my baby crying? He’s just grunting,” screamed Darla. The midwife whisked little Timothy to a table in the delivery room for a closer examination. “He was stuck in the birth canal for quite awhile. The doctor will be right in to examine […]

Ariadne's Thread

So I’ve shared outfits inspired by Slytherin House and Gryffindor House, and now we’re moving on to my actual, official Hogwarts House (according to Pottermore, at least): Ravenclaw.  Fun fact: On almost every sorting quiz I’ve taken, whether it’s the Myers-Briggs inspired one on Time Magazine, the official Pottermore one, the old official Pottermore one, […]

Adam Kupka's Exercise in Vulnerability and Self-Growth

Google Drive Document (in case you wanted to save a copy). I’d recommend doing this if you’re planning on adding comments or editing it at all. And, truthfully, it’s easier to read there than on this website in terms of formatting. Prologue: Tariq—20 ATD             The wind whipped around Tariq […]

So it would seem that the chips are beginning to fall, the prosecution is gradually closing in, with the southern district of New York chiming in, and Mueller too, of hush money payments before an election and lawyers taking the fall (Cohen), of hiding and lying about it (Manafort),  rag publishers granted immunity to spew, […]

Fuwa Never Time

It was the last train. He didn’t notice, but everyone was pinching their noses shut. He hadn’t had a bath in months. “What?” he asked. “We stink,” she said, pulling her beret down in embarrassment. “We do?” he asked. “Probably all the time we spend sorting through trash.” He scratched his beard idly. “Please, let’s […]
