That life is a never-ending string of Dominoes with God’s finger at the helm…

It’s an age-old question dating back to the beginning of time: is life a series of completely random moments, or a script comprised of purely destined pre-ordainment?

After missing my chance to see it in theaters, I watched the movie Patriots Day … Continue reading That life is a never-ending string of Dominoes with God’s finger at the helm…

From its likely origin in Neolithic conceptualization, onward … Continue reading That the sun still hath reign supreme…

That while a picture may be worth a thousand words, a phone call is worth a million…

There is no stopping it, and in reality it cannot be considered a negative, but advancements in layman communication have undoubtedly leaped to the forefront of all palpable technological progress.
