Born upside down

I have recently finished reading Orthodoxy by G. K. Chesterton. I’ve heard it quoted all my life, but never took the plunge in reading it. I will tell you, it’s not for the fainthearted. Long paragraphs, no white space, and complex ideas make it a challenge to read, but so worth the effort, for it is … More Born upside down

No hashtag needed

I’ve fallen prey. I cannot lie. I’ve used hashtags in my posts on Instagram and Facebook. It’s amazing how our culture influences us and changes us. I don’t think I could have told you what a #hashtag was in 2009, when I came back home after twenty years abroad; yet now they seem to move … More No hashtag needed

Brain Food
