  • Wordless Wednesday – Native American Protest Art

  • Poetry – Peruvian Art

    Eccentric faces made of wood, mysteries of time older than golden cities. Thick thighs of fertility creating order out of nature, and the warning ever present – look but don’t touch!

  • I Visited a Castle Today!

    My husband and I went to Loveland, Ohio today to see a real castle built by hand by one guy (allegedly by a French knight, but that turns out to be more legend it seems). Here are a few of my favorite photos from the tour. First, the castle itself: Me, trying to look regal […]

  • Poetry – Scrambled Savior

    I meant to share this poem around Easter, but forgot. Guess I had too much going on. This poem just sort of wrote itself, with the images of both the commercial and sacred aspects of the holiday mixing together in my mind. It is not meant to be offensive to religion, but instead, to compare […]

  • For the Love of Anubis

    I took the above picture at the Indianapolis Children’s Museum we visited a couple weeks ago. Anubis has always been one of my favorite mythological Gods. Him and Bastet are definitely my favorite Egyptian gods/goddesses, although Thoth is up there on my list as well. In case you are unfamiliar with Anubis, he is the […]

I do not ascribe to any particular […]

  • Is Freemasonry Sexist?

    I’ve always been fascinated by secret societies and any organizations that tend to have “secret teachings”. The Freemasons specifically have always been an object of curiosity for me. I have always been tempted to join the Freemasons and work my way up the 33 degrees of their Scottish Rite path, because I would love to […]

  • Poetry – Holy Warriors

    Holy Warriors By: Maranda Russell Holy warriors learn a lesson today. Their distorted agenda rightly condemns one righteous man setting a fire beyond their own narrow audience – but – to the best of my knowledge – this will be a one-time exception.

  • Who Knew Modern Art Was Communist?

    I’ve been reading a book about abstract expressionism, and one part really made me laugh. I am a nerd, so I’m not sure if others will find this as amusing as I did, but I felt I would share anyhow. The amusing part of the book was about how modern art was shackled to communism […]
