  1. 1984, George Orwell (book review)

    Why am I posting book reviews? Because reading books is time-consuming. No one wants to spend a month or two reading a lousy book. I'll offer here my "two cents" on whatever book I finish.

    1984, George Orwell

    Just finished listening to this on audio while driving. I will run into some difficulty reviewing this as I must guard against revealing spoilers.

    The year is 1984 (the book was written in 1949) in the country called Oceania. The story follows ...

  2. The Old Mission Church


    The Old Mission Church
    The air is hot and humid as we sit in the church pew,
    The building's very old and nothing in it's new.
    The walls are cracking; the alter cloth is stained,
    And I'm sure that we'd get drenched if it should rain.

    The roof is leaking but the preacher keeps on preaching;
    A tired fan is squeaking and the rusty door is creaking.
    The paint

  3. David's Flight

    Do not expect a smooth and easy path!

  5. Child of the Night


    Child of the Night
    Oh, child of sorrows and of the night,
    In empty darkness you've been bound tight -
    With ropes and chains you can't even see
    And you're struggling and falling and trying to flee.
