I want to mourn for the world

The one we have lost

I want to wail to the heavens


A cry of agony

To render even star song silent.

I want to mourn for the world


Good Morning

Brighter Days

The sun is shining, professing its continued routine of rising in the East and setting in the West. There is no wind outside, suggesting a run would be enjoyable. Meanwhile, there are sleeping cats cuddled next to Tina out in the living room where she sleeps on the couch. Outside on Highway 23/Grand Avenue, the traffic drones by, more than ought to be happening but less than usually happens. Regardless of the state of the world, life is happening now for most of us. I don’t know about you, but I guess I’ll strive for the best. What else can I do?

Slip Free


Our reality has slipped. Our perspectives have been left behind. The age of possibility and expansion has been replaced with the age of consequence and reduction. The promise of a better life has been replaced with a plight of uncertainty and stagnation.

Educational Update #356*

Okay, okay. I know. It’s been a while since I’ve punched the keys and produced a post for my blog. So, here it is.

I finished the weekly work on one of my courses. Unfortunately, due to being under the weather physically and mentally, I fell behind on a major project due on Monday. It requires creating a question and finding an answer in historical sources. I also have a 10-page case study analysis paper due in my other class on Monday. It requires no research, so I’ll get it done tomorrow.

Thankfully I have an understanding instructor who is going to give me more time to get the project finished. So, I’ll also be working on a question (my biggest struggle) for some historical sources about past plagues or other such microbial-caused illnesses. But, I know I’ll get it done.

I hope you all are doing well and dealing with the current state of affairs that has befallen our world. I know I have good days and bad days. Hell, sometimes I have good hours and bad hours all in the same evening. We are in one unique period in this modern era. I hold you all in the Light.

*I have no idea how many education updates I’ve created.
