    Last year I went to a nice little summer camp in northern Michigan.  I was there for a few weeks, blissfully unaware of the outside world.  Unfortunately, the outside world was not idle.  When I got back I had a lot of newspaper reading to catch up on - and a terrible lot of it seemed to involv...

    Yesterday I wrote a poem of tears But gifting it to you, reader, would be a Monstrous lie. Without looking into My dry eyes How could you see how empty My tortured words were. And who could tell me What happiness it is to build a web A glittering tear-drop web of wondrous words to catch a...

    Among the popular genre of the English novel of manners, Jane Austen’s novels stand out. Perhaps this is why all of her complete works have been made into movies- most of them more than once. But most agree that the best of the books is Pride and Prejudice, and the best of the movies is P&P ...

    Today I was happily browsing the vast musical world of YouTube when I was suddenly confronted with the blatant and ignorant power of bullying. I was listening to “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” and happened to scroll down to the comments. There a woman was being attacked by two thoughtless cree...

    Most people have felt anxiety. If you haven’t, you must be a very unusual, reckless, and awesome person. Maybe your name is Bond, James Bond. But I digress. This is not an essay about the absence of anxiety- it is an essay on the all-pervading plague of it. I like to think that in most thin...

    In this world where privacy is a joke and personal information is personal in name only, many institutions quietly gather information for studies, surveys, or surveillance. But shouldn’t the personal information of students be an exception? Understandably, if you post the nitty-gritty details ...

    If the shoe fits, Wear it. Used as a metaphor For all sorts Of things. Allow me, If you will, To expand The metaphor. Some relationships Are like the High heeled shoes In the back of my closet. They don’t really fit It's a stretch. They pinch my toes Just as my true self ...

    The snow flake held its breath as it swirled through the clouds. "Like a roller coaster!" It thought. "But what is a roller coaster?" Suddenly it plummeted down, down until it could see tree and houses. Then up, peeking once more into the cloud before again descending. This t...

    New York and people watching are synonymous. Drinking coffee and people watching- also synonymous. A person sitting in a New York corner coffee shop facing the windows is unable to restrain himself. Laying aside day old newspapers and trashy tabloids, I and my fellow caffeine addicts gaze int...

    The point of this paper is to demonstrate the ways God has moved in my life. I’m not sure I agree with writing a paper like this, for the seemingly paradoxical reason that I believe we don’t appreciate God enough. When we write papers about how He led us to find the right house just when our h...

    The ideal library would be about three stories floor to ceiling. If one entered from the main floor of the house, one would find oneself on a wide balcony with an ornate wooden rail all the way around. This rail would serve the dual purpose of protecting people who walk and read from dying, and al...

    The grey robes are too big. Way too big. I can already sense that this is a bad idea. I shake the sleeves back from my hands and reach for the pointy, shimmery shoes in the trunk. They are gray, and solid, but they seem to be woven of gossamer, and when the light hits them I see unexpected color...

    What if the world were black and white? Like splattered paint, the snow drops from the sky, And mixes with the black, black ground, And makes a slushy, mushy gray. What if the world were black and white? With clothes, all black and white and gray, And people gray and black and white And, t...
