I’ve written many times about the various showsContinue reading “Day 10 of the Love Write Now Pledge”

Queen Jennifer and Me: A Personal Reaction to SIX THE MUSICAL

Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anna of Cleves, Katherine Howard, and Catherine Parr – all Queens whose lives have been retold and reshaped to suit history’s story.

Sunday SoulJourn: Spiritual Visit

20 September 2015 Just in case you haven’t heard, the Pope is coming to Philly! This would be a bigger deal for me if Catholicism, or Christianity in general, still offered solutions to my spiritual needs. Quite a few years have passed since I last found solace in the religion which I once treasured. ForContinue reading “Sunday SoulJourn: Spiritual Visit”
