I read because I must. It's like breathing to me. And I love talking about books. But I'm also an Arsenal fan, a wine drinker, a music lover and weirdly obsessed with pop culture. I mostly blog about books, but sometimes about things I'm thinking or doing. When I'm not on the blog, I'm scoping deals for a professional services company, hanging out with friends, or seeing some live theater.

Someone Explain It To Me, Please

  This post is about Cecil the Lion and my thoughts around this occurrence. The circumstances around Cecil’s death have made me sad and  sick to my stomach.  Stop reading now if you don’t want to know more. I’m recounting the details as I have read them, and they are disgusting to say the least.   […]

Indoctrination Education

I don’t know precisely why all of this is coming up now, or why I feel the need to share it, but I am writing it down nonetheless.  I think it is the result of some new friends I’ve made and some books I’m currently reading. I’ve been thinking about my childhood. I was raised […]
