Book Review: Warrior

Book Review: Warrior

Author: Bryan Davis

Another excellent book by Mr.

Davis. A wonderful read for YA and Adult as well. The struggles that each character faces is something young adults can relate too as they travel their journey through life. I was left on the edge of my seat wondering what choice they would make. In fact I almost sent a message to Mr. Davis to yell at him for writing such a suspenseful book, because I spent a few nights having trouble putting the book down so…

As the Actress Said to the Bishop...: The Little Madam and the key to everlasting happiness

Before I launch into anything else, I want to acknowledge the absolutely wonderful weather that London is currently blessed with. You have to see it to believe it: it's warm, it's sunny, it's lasted for more than one day, and there's no rain in the forecast unless you live in…

Getting ready for graduate school

The end of my bachelor's program is nearing.  Graduation is no longer an abstract concept.  It's real.  I'm in the process of getting ready to apply to various MFA programs in creative writing.  I'm working to create that "perfect" piece of writing that will wow the selection committee.

April - Autism Awareness Month

While at a McDonald's playland, a child plays alone, not interacting with others, completely content for the moment to sit and gaze at a toy object in his hand.  His thoughts are a million miles away from those of other children sliding down a bright yellow slide into a sea of brightly colored plastic balls that cushion their descent and lead to squeals of enjoyment.  For no particular reason he becomes agitated and throws a tantrum with hand flapping and rocking behaviors.  His mother, not…

Death of an Expectation

When death occurs someone is left behind to grieve. When our expectations or our current dreams die we have to grieve to find new dreams. Sometimes, if we are lucky the death is slow and gradual. But there are times when death is sudden and immediate. Everyone grieves differently. Some people grieve faster… Continue

ARE LIBRARIES ON THE DEMISE?

My goodness. There are iPads, Kindles, Nooks, Vooks, and more. I play Scrabble on mine. Now you can download short stories. Google is copying every book in the world. If I were a librarian, I might be worried.

 

But leave it to Yale University to come up with the solution. According to the New York Times, the Yale Law Library has dogs to lend. That’s right. Harried law students can now, along with books about Torts and Statutes of Limitations, check out a dog. What could…

When father and mother forsake me

"When my mother and father forsake me, then the Lord will take me up."~~Psalm 17:10



This verse kept running through my mind as I read Julie Klassen’s historical novel, The Girl in the Gatehouse. In the story, Mariah Aubrey stumbles into disgrace and, as a result, is harshly rejected by her autocratic father. He banishes… Continue

Serving Up Cake and Kool-Aid

Just a few weeks ago in WalMart I was listening happily to someone else go on, in detail, about the job, the kids, the husband and the guilty pleasures that we all indulge in from time to time.  She was holding court in the ready-made bakery area where you can get a sugar high by just inhaling!  I LOVE to bake, but there are times when a trip to that corner is a welcome respite from the heated oven (hot flashes, you know)!  I was…

On Mexico City, saying goodbye, and friendship...

Here's today's post from my blog,The Sophia Project. 

 

As I write this, I sit in an empty house in Mexico City. The sun is nearly set, the sky dark and hazy with sunset and smog. A car drives by, speaker blasting reggaeton. A dog barks from across the street. And planes fly low overhead, leaving the airport for someplace…
