The Silmarillion – A Book Review

¨And it came to pass that Ilúvatar called together all the Ainur and declared to them a mighty theme, unfolding to them things greater and more wonderful than he had yet revealed; and the glory of its beginning and the splendour of its end amazed the Ainur so that they bowed before Ilúvatar and were silent.   Glorious Emotion I […]

Onward – A Movie Review

Magic, Adventure, and Everything Else I don’t know about you, but 2020 didn’t produce all that many movies that truly inspired me to go to the theater.  In fact. . . now that I stop to think about it, I don’t believe that I actually went to the movie theater this year.  Which means the last movie I watched in […]

December 2020 – Reading Update

It’s That Time of Year Christmas time is almost upon us yet again…and I’m celebrating six months of my blog!  One of my resolutions is to be more faithful with my blog (going completely silent for three months at a time is not the way to go!)  But I’m also resolved to read more books in 2021.  Honestly, reading more […]

Knives Out – A Movie Review

Mystery Extraordinaire I love a good mystery.  But not just any mystery; I like ’em mixed up, jumbled, and completely complicated.  The tough nuts are always the funnest to crack.  Here’s the funny thing: I’m a horrible detective!  Remember Murder on the Orient Express (2017)?  I was riveted and spent the entire movie replaying all possible options for who did it.  All […]
