I’ve Been Exposed

Facebook. What a great tool. A place to connect with friends, rekindle long lost relationships, engage in meaningful conversation, and a place to be grossly misunderstood. When I first joined Facebook, it was an amazing place. For the first 20-50 friends it was a place where I could really be myself.

Music is a powerful thing, and it doesn’t hurt that this piece by Edvard Grieg has long been a favorite. This video is less than 2.5 minutes.

Theatre Review: Guys & Dolls @ Plaza Theatre in Cleburne

“The companionship of a doll is a pleasant thing even for a period of time running into months.

Theological Pursuits – a New Blog

This blog needs therapy. It doesn’t know if it’s a place for news about my family, a place for theatre reviews, or a place for theological ramblings and book reviews. Sadly, I can’t afford to send my blog to counseling. Instead, I am taking steps to eliminate this split personality. Introducing Theological Pursuits. Head on over to...
