The Prince

Recently, Ely over at She Gives No Fox shared the story of how she came to love writing at a young age. Her story jogged my memory and reminded me that my own story of learning to love writing was somewhat similar. For Ely, it was second grade. For me, it was a few years … Continue reading The Prince

Old Commercials and Anxiety

YouTube can be a wonderful waste of time. If you're anything like me, you'll find yourself watching something useful, maybe even informative, and then you find yourself falling down a rabbit hole of videos and suddenly an hour or more has gone by.

It Really Has Been 20 Years…

From ages 2 to 102. That's an exaggeration. Not everyone sang in the adult choir. But I have … Continue reading Cornerstone

Colonial Times

Once upon a time, I was living in a small city known as Bluefield. Now, it's easy to get confused as to where that may be. See, there are two Bluefields. And they exist side by side. On the Virginia side of the border, we have the town of Bluefield, home to Bluefield College, my … Continue reading Colonial Times
