Thinky/Discussion Post: Ghosts/Spirits, What Is Your Personal Feeling About It?

Nothing particularly inspired this post, beyond my parents and I having a conversation last night about if/when we feel the spirits of our shared dead relatives. As I’ve mentioned before, the lake house I go to in the summer has been in our family for almost 100 years, and it’s also where I spent the most time with my beloved Grandmother and Grandfather as a child (and where my father spent the most time with HIS grandparents when HE was a child), so we are surrounded by ghosts of various kinds of here.

Discussion Post: Alcohol! Do You Like It? Do You Not? Should I Try It?

This is a very self-centered post. I mean, I want to hear all your alcohol stories too of course.

Discussion Post: What Are Our Personal Feelings on Art Versus Artist?

I’m watching the Farrow vs Allen doc now, and what is so different about it is that it actually directly addresses the art versus artist question. That’s genius, because normally these kind of stories avoid that whole element, and that leaves the audience a bit lost. I think we need to talk about art versus artist more, come up with more tools for ourselves to handle that question.
