Classical Latin went extinct, yet we still know how to pronounce it. Proof!

Contrary to what many a Grammar Nazi the world over would have you believe, language is constantly evolving, occasionally extremely rapidly, and there is nothing wrong with that, despite such individuals lamenting that fact pretty much as long as we have documented reference of people discussing language.

An introduction to the ‘Original Pronunciation’ production of Shakespeare and what they reveal about the history of the English language.

When I was in the 7th grade at a private school, I shared a classroom with Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon. I remember her fondly as one of the few kids who would help me out (we had to share textbooks). She’s written a book about her father called “Be Water, My Friend: The Teachings of Bruce Lee.”

“Algerian Rhapsody”

Apparently, many comparisons have been drawn between Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Albert Camus’ “The Stranger.” Someone finally took the next step and mashed them together in a video.

“Critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song’s lyrics. Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer hunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution. The only thing we borrowed was the instrumental track.The latter explanation points to Albert Camus’s novel The Stranger, in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.” -Wikipedia

“Dreaming I Die” is LIVE!

I am thrilled to announce that the third and final installment in my Dreaming Trilogy, “Dreaming I Die,” is now live on Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle editions. Took me four years to write these three novels. I wrote them in such a way that they can all be read independently of one another, but they make the most sense when read in order. All three books now have slightly different covers that show off the cover paintings much better. #Fiction #HistoricalThrillers #LucidDreaming
