If you were like me when it came time to learn a sense of direction, you probably heard the old adage of, “The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.” Well, at the dawning of each new day I’m met with this jade piece of wisdom, as I make my way into work on my morning commute. I’m already on...
I rented a Redbox film this week called “Sweet Country.” A 2017 Australian film, this movie centers around three individual characters living in the 1920s, out in the middle of Australia’s outback. Sam Kelly is an Aboriginal farmhand working for Fred Smith, a preacher with the heart to bring the...
It feels like the year has flown by in a blur; calendar dates whizzing by as if the finish line to 2020 is material. I can hardly believe that it is the third week in November already, and that winter has already befallen us despite what little snow we have received. It was just Monday that the...
I remember the first multiple-page report I wrote in school. The report was to be a biography of a living person, and needed to be handwritten, with a cover page, pictures, and reference index. Being home-schooled, my mother expected a certain level of research, and I was required to have four...

My first summer having horses has certainly been an adventure, one which has driven me to spend more time outside not only doing chores, but also learning the landscape of my family’s property, which comes with the territory of large animal ownership. That said, we had absolutely no idea that our...
“There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” We all remember what is perhaps one of the largest and most well-known cult-classics of them all, “The Wizard of Oz.” From the ruby slippers, to the Yellow Brick Road, to the gaggling cackles of the Wicked Witch of the West, it stands to...
I found myself in downtown Minneapolis last Saturday afternoon, parking at the Target Center and trying desperately to figure out where, exactly, I was supposed to be hours before the PBR Minneapolis Invitational, “Unleash the Beast.” I joined thousands of others there, attempting to find my seat...
I’ve spoken before about my appreciation for the many talents of Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone.
