A Stampede of Happiness: Williams Syndrome

A friend turned me on to Jon Kent’s A Stampede of Happiness, which is a 43 minute long documentary about Williams Syndrome. It’s showing on Amazon Prime. It was quite fun to watch, and I realized I was grinning through most of it. I’m familiar with quite a few of the people shown in the documentary, and it’s a good … Read More

New Year. Fresh Start.

Five years ago I shaved my head and apparently caused total strangers to explode.Ā Ā A simple haircut seemed like a Very Big Deal last time, but didn’t faze me at all this go around.

Christmas in the Time of Covid

It hasn’t been easy, has it, my darlings? It’s been…exhausting. But I do want to share the drive-through party that our church had. It wasn’t the annual traditional party with dinner, a program, and a visit by a certain Jolly Old Elf, but it was still sweet and touched my soul. Different organizations set up in the parking lot. I’m … Read More

Dead Headspace Podcast: A Roundtable on Faith and Horror

I had the best time on this podcast, my friends. Patrick R. McDonough and Brennan LaFaro invited Ronald Kelly, John Quick, Todd Keisling, and myself to discuss faith and horror.

It was an intriguing, respectful, thoughtful discussion about the juxtaposition of faith … Read More
