PositionFinder 8000

Pressing buttons like I knew what I was doing, I began to walk at an angle to where we had come from. Luke was grumbling to himself again, loudly, and if I could have had one wish it would have been for my "real" compass in the kitchen drawer at home.

Keys to the Point of No Return

What kind of a future is pop culture entertainment and advertising media hacking out for us right now? Can there even be a future for a humanity that strives to be so shallow? (Sultana Usafali). The result of lies is more lies, and ultimately reality is the bowling ball that knocks deceptions over like pins. Those who were clinging to the pins and making them the center of their world go down too. Lies and liars are swept away. In my opinion, media effects on self-image today are the result of a long-tended, carefully perfected brainwashing ploy that in the end will doom the world.

A Study in Grit

My dreams and Sonny’s dreams are a little unheard of and a little odd to the people around us, dreams you would have to experience to believe are worthwhile. Sometimes I don’t believe in myself and the benefits of my goal, and sometimes it is hard to see where I am going. Like the climber hugging the face of the rocky, deadly mountain, I am not in a position to see the top, my goal. I only have my imagination to feel the success, and to design my path to reach it. When things happen that I do not expect, the challenge of absorbing the problem and shaping my life around it stretches my imagination and the abilities of my mind. Whatever stands in our path helps to shape who we are and prepare us for whatever happens next.

Winter in Verona

“There is still red in your lips and in your cheeks. Death has not yet turned them pale…Ah, dear Juliet, why are you still so beautiful?” He doesn’t stop to wonder at how she died, is only plagued with insanity that she is dead.

Overcomer

Why, hello there! This is your spoiler alert. Watching Overcomer with my church over Zoom. Already saw the Say Movienight Kevin Review, so I’m already pretty biased. Some of the jokes are pretty funny. Generally a basic underdog sports movie with a random prodigal parent thread thrown in. I feel like the two plots could… Continue reading Overcomer
