A Song with Sue Vincent – the birth of the Silent Eye — The Silent Eye

In the near darkness, the woman’s gentle right hand came down on my shoulder from behind. It was the signal that she was ready, that we could begin either the bravest or the stupidest thing we’d ever attempted. (With the giant enneagram lovingly ‘taped’ onto the carpet of the Nightingale Centre, the cast of ‘The […]Continue reading “A Song with Sue Vincent – the birth of the Silent Eye — The Silent Eye”

Reading J.R.R. Tolkien by Audiobook and Adaptation: Thoughts on a Portland Discovery (#tolkienreadingday) — A Pilgrim in Narnia

It was pouring rain in Portland as Nicolas and I wove our way through the artisan-filled streets of this renewed East Coast City. I love Portland, though we were not visiting on the best of circumstances. Just a couple of hours earlier, with too little sleep, Nicolas and I had left a sunny Boston behind. […]Continue reading “Reading J.R.R.

The Choice: Shakespeare Or Soma [A Brave New World] — did you blank it?

In part 1 of this three-part series, I addressed how 1984, the defacto king of predicting our dystopian present, may fall short of the mark when assessing the reasons for our current state of ignorance and political control.  You can read that post here, but the TL/DR is that 1984 argues a top-down governmental overhaul, of what we […]Continue reading “The Choice: Shakespeare Or Soma [A Brave New World] — did you blank it?”

Believe it or not, there was a time when liberals were the civil libertarians of American politics and conservatives were the folks most likely to advocate repression of individual rights. I do not mean simply that this was the substance of our nation’s politics at that time. No. I mean, that this was […]Continue reading “Timothy McVeigh Would have Been Proud! — northierthanthou”
