Vampires

I like the newer romantic vampire stories that have appeared on the market in the past 10 years or so.  I’m not interested in vampire horror movies where vampires are just raging monsters, calculating or cannon fodder, but then I’m not into horror movies in general. …

Sacred Space

We all have the ability to create sacred space in our lives.  A place where we lay down the everyday world, remove our shielding and masks and relax and replenish ourselves in the numinous.  There are many places already available to us for this purpose:  temples, mosques, churches, and memorials to name a few.…
