An End of Eras

For those of you who have been following along, we have had two ongoing sagas. I was inclined to call them basketball-gate and neighbour-gate, but there probably isn’t enough scandal to warrant a “gate”. I also shouldn’t bother trying to give them a trendy name seeing as they both seem to be coming to a…

Optimism

Most people think of me as a pessimist. I don’t think that’s quite fair. I prefer to think of myself more like Batman: a contingency plan for every eventual bad situation.

And Thirdly

You will sometimes hear the common refrain, “all religions basically teach the same thing”.
