(People)

By | 2 Comments

People are infinitely strange. For every nice person I meet I seem to end up accidentally running into or talking to quite a few that are not worthy of attention.

Laughter, Needed

Everyone who knows me knows I’m a huge Dr. Who fan. We’ve been waiting on the results of the biopsy, so I’m a bit stressed and not really amused at very much, not even the antics of the cats.

TheĀ weaving of an extraordinary tale in an extraordinary world must takeĀ its cue from the everyday lives and trials of the souls that inhabitĀ this one. Even though characters in fantasy are blessed with certainĀ unusual powers they need their weaknesses in order to make themĀ someone we can identify with. However, I…
