Read “Old Man and the Sea” with Me

Read “Old Man and the Sea” with Me

Let’s read a short book.  Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea is perfect for poolside or beach chair reading.  Hemingway is the master of writing stories where not much happens, yet it keeps you turning page after page.  He says so much with so few words.  He seems Dicken’s polar opposite.  There is a…

Lent is For You!

Lent is For You!

I both dread and eagerly look forward to observing Lent each year.  When I bring up my Lent struggle to give up anger (more on that when Lent is over) I continue to get an interesting response.  “I thought Lent was for Catholics.” While our Catholic brothers and sisters have an advantage since they have…

Reading the Federalist Papers with Me (Part 2)

Let’s dig into a couple of the meatier Federalist Papers! One of the most often quoted in Federalist No. 51. Let’s pull that up on The Avalon Project.
