I like Christianity, literature, Ireland, being Anglican, horseback riding, travel, books, studying religions, ranch work, puppies, C.S. Lewis, Guinness, fields of grass, Oxford commas, and very large cups of tea.

Every introvert alive knows the exquisite pleasure of stepping from the clamor of a party into the bathroom and closing the door.

Reblog if your cramps have ever

  • made you vomit
  • lasted between 2-3 days
  • stopped you from being able to walk or run
  • made you cry

It’s not considered a viable excuse on any occasion, and I would like to know why.


  • woken you up at night the pain was so bad


  • made you pass out

don’t forget

  • made you unable to stand up without doubling over and grabbing onto the closest object for support

all the above

A quarter of the U.S. population — and 40 percent of the population of New York, where my novel is set — self-identify as Catholic. One of the most striking features of the city is that there are churches everywhere, from one of the world’s largest cathedrals to hundreds of storefront churches. And a bit of investigation will reveal that those churches fill up every Sunday. Not to mention the fact that there are more Jews in New York than in any other city in the world. But for some reason the publishing industry in this city tends to view the introduction of religion into contemporary realist novels as a willful act that must have some strong rhetorical justification. From where I stand, the exclusion of religion is the willful act. Novelists never get asked why they don’t include religion in their books, or why the religion they do include — often just a species of madness — bears so little resemblance to religion as it is practiced by the majority of Americans. If they were asked, I suspect, most of these writers would not have a very good answer. It simply doesn’t occur to them. Whatever one’s beliefs, this seems like a basic failure of verisimilitude. Reality includes religion; realism should, too.

Worldwide Protests for Assyrians, the Christian indigenous people of Iraq.

We protest because our people are being slaughtered, raped and expelled from their native lands. It is a silent genocide. The world governments remain silent, the media is busy and there is little hope for one of the worlds oldest civilizations. This is a cry for humanity and a major crime against it. Speak up. Protest. We demand action. We need help. Save our people from ISIS and the evil of the world.
