A Spark of Hope

January 25, 2015, by Christian A. Brown

Last night we watched Lucy in lieu of another film, Snowpiercer. I was mildly disappointed as we turned on the movie, since I’ve been dying to see Tilda Swinton’s hokey performance in Snowpiercer. But the vote was for Lucy, democracy decided, and that’…

Time to Talk

January 18, 2015, by Christian A. Brown

Don’t be misled by the title. As much as I want to begin another one of my sermons on conquering the evils of mankind, today is not the day for that. We are creatures of light, and darkness, and today we can focus on the former. First, however, a momen…

Homecoming

January 11, 2015, by Christian A. Brown

As some of you may know, I spent the Christmas holiday with my cousin and her charming family in the UK. We saw as many sights and sounds as can reasonably be experienced in a two week trip. It was the kind of whirlwind vacation where you only rarely t…

A Gift for the New Year

January 4, 2015, by Christian A. Brown

Well, here we are in 2015. It’s been a terrific year for me: the launch, the realization of a lifelong dream (and the birth of new goals and ambitions). I do hope that each of you has enjoyed great success and happiness this past year. If not, well, he…

On Romance

December 28, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Well, here I am in Barcelona (see the attached pic), one of the oldest cities in the world, and naturally, I’m thinking of romance. It’s hard for even the hardest heart, like mine, not to soften, when church bells are ringing on the breeze fluttering i…

My Love Affair With Language

December 21, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

‘Tis the time of year to be thankful; for our friends, our health, our possessions. I’ve written extensively—though not exhaustively—on gratefulness. I think many of you know a good deal about my life, passions and loves. So when thinking about what I…

Dealing With Negativity

December 14, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

Good afternoon, folks. Negativity. I mentioned that I wanted to touch upon this topic two Sundays ago, but I became derailed by all that terrible business down south. I’m sending whatever positive thoughts and energy that I can spare toward dissolving…

The Cancer of Hate

December 7, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

It’s hard to look to our neighbors in the south now, and not see the simmering pot of tension and socioeconomic repression and not feel something. Three tragic incidents happening, in such a small frame of time; all pertaining to a visible minority bei…

Tripping Down the Road to Greatness

November 30, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

The Sunday blog. Like any other bit of writing, on particular days this is a chore. I had a meeting with my editor this week, and we discussed—among many interesting things—the nature of writing, the dedication and time-management needed for the craft.…

Gloriatrix

Our Glorification of Evil

November 23, 2014, by Christian A. Brown

I have a particular inspiration for today’s post, namely, the lovely images commissioned from Mr. Leo Black, which have been added to the gallery. They are another artist’s representation of the grisly trio of schemers from Feast of Fates: Gloriatrix,…
