The Internet Reacts
‘The internet reacts’ is a phrase that gets used a lot these days. Normally it’s in reference to some non story about a psuedo celeb. Am I the only one who finds this ridiculous?
Emotional support canine who needs support?
This random musing on the dog had me thinking about our connection to animals and the natural world in general.
Satire – Funny or Too Far?
It’s not just edgy comedy, it is a tongue in cheek look at this world of ours and how ridiculous it can be at times.
Looking back on 2022 there seems to be a collective agreement that it was a real bastard of a year. Pardon my language but sometimes there aren’t any polite words to adequately describe it.
For as long as we’ve existed we’ve sought out animal companions whether it was to assist in hunting or to offer a unique friendship and connection.
The Kingdom of Ashes
There once was a kingdom with a fierce but fair ruler.
The Deadly Sins
Is the fear of an almighty a good enough way to keep people following a code of morals?
We all need some inspiration. We all need someone to look up to. What do we seek in our heroes?
