    I am on record as being willing to see Tom Hanks play any role, even stranded on a desert island talking to a volleyball.  But this is certainly one of his most compelling performances.  I am hoping he will be nominated again for an Academy Award.  In many ways, this is a film for our times. Captain Kidd is a man who has fought in the Civil War, and come home to Texas to find the world upside… Read more

MOTHER LOAD From the very beginning The burden was clear Sometimes bearable Sometimes severe Ate from the apple Shared it with him Disobeyed the order Indulged the whim. What was the outcome? The fruit of the act? She ‘knew’ good and evil? She experienced it in fact? Did the earth creature join her? Did he crumble into dust? Did he die in an instant? Or just tumble into lust?

There were no prophecies about it, and yet consistently Jesus is… Read more
