I know we are still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.

Love and Something Like It!

The day began with the usual humdrum.

‘Where is my dress,’ shouted Viren, without even looking inside the cupboard? A quick glance, and he called for his mother, who was still busy helping out her husband find his shoes and tie.

‘Can you see the hangars in the lower part,’ she shouted from the kitchen, hoping to remotely manage the issue.

‘Where,’ Viren shouted anxiously this time, his eyes staring at the bottom of the cupboard, multiple hangars adorned the single rod while bearing the weight of innumerable clothes.

‘Towards your left,’ she replied before immediately adding, ‘no, no, towards your right, probably in the middle.’

A temporary relief reflected on her face as she finally got everything her husband needed, allowing her to rush towards her son, Viren, now.

‘Did you find it,’ she asked as she walked towards him.

Birth of an immortal

Emeralogy, Study of the Divine in the Chronicles of Eric the Emerald King, Servant to Jesus and Mary.

Redhead on a red horse. Mysterious is the plan of God.

The Chronicles of Azurite, Book 1: Post XXII:
As you realize, the God who speaks through a Prophet a prophecy but is unable to fulfill it, that God is not God but Satan. I, Eric, have spoken. Amen. Holy Spirit, I ask You to speak unto me. Concerning the God Who said I was to be made an immortal tonight, was that God truly God, or was he Satan? And let the Holy Spirit alone speak. Let no devil speak in his place. Lord, speak, for Your servant is listening.

I, God the Holy Spirit, shall now speak. Eric, you are immortal, as We speak. No longer is it possible for you to sin or commit any demerit. For only meritorious acts can you now do, just as Jesus, throughout His entire life, was unable to demerit, but was…

Ignore It, Will Robinson!! Fake Fake Fake!

Marilyn's Room

Happy Friday, folks!

Well the quite curious news is that the (fake) police officer at the (fake) U S C a p i t ol in surr e c tion, who was  involved in the (fake) shooting of the (fake) As hli Babbit has basically been declared not guilty of shooting her (in her absolutely entirely fake and staged death) and the case is now officially closed.

Well, hmmmmm. Wasn’t that just awful — the weeping and wailing of her family and friends, decrying how unjust that decision was and that something has got to be done to somehow justify her innocent death….

Wait — you didn’t see that footage??

That’s because there wasn’t any. As we shared with you here back in, like, late January — the entire thing was staged and FAKE.

Hmmm. Much like that weird C* VID scam dem ic. And the (seriously dangerous) fake vaxes.

A Hard Day’s Night 🎶

words and music and stories

On 16 April 1964,  The Beatles recordedA Hard Day’s Night, one of their first hit singles, at EMI Studios in London.  

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I’ll find the things that you do
Will make me feel alright

You know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it’s worth it just to hear you say you’re going to give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, ’cause when I get you alone
You know I feel ok

When I’m home everything seems to be right
When I’m home feeling you holding me tight, tight, yeah

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a…

A Review of Jana Larson’s Reel Bay: A Cinematic Essay

BREVITY's Nonfiction Blog

By Rachael Hanel

A picture in a newspaper in 1999 sent me on a journey to find out more about a woman who is impossible to know. Jana Larson, too, also saw a newspaper article that began a nearly 20-year journey to find out more about a woman who is impossible to know.

Sometimes I can’t believe I’ve put more than twenty years into the research and writing of my subject—practically half my life. So as I read Larson’s Reel Bay: A Cinematic Essay, I didn’t feel so alone—here was another writer pursuing questions that have no answers.

The subject of Larson’s book is Takako Konishi, a Japanese woman who in 2001 traveled to North Dakota and then Minnesota, where she died in a grove of trees on a chilly November night. The surface story is that Konishi had been searching for the money Steve Buscemi’s character in Fargo

Bible Contradiction? How old was Jehoiachin when he began to reign?

The Domain for Truth

bible_contradiction_resolved_how_old_was_jehoiachin_when_he_began_to_reign

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: How old was Jehoiachin when he began to reign?

Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

He was 18 years old and he reigned for 3 months.

Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Nehushta the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.” ( 2 Kings 24:8)

He was 8 years old and he reigned for 3 months and 10 days.

Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, and he reigned for three months and ten days in Jerusalem. He did evil in the sight of the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 36:9)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
