Heart List: Touch

I have recently discovered this new tv show, and I'm quite impressed! There seems to be a lot of new shows that kind of feel that they've been slapped together with the sole purpose of parading drama. This show is thoughtful, simple in its complexity, and...well, touching. I love seeing Kiefer Sutherland in a different role, and I think he does a wonderful job portraying a struggling father. The character of Jake (the son) never speaks and rarely changes his expression, but he is strangely emotive and relatable. The story follows a widower (Sutherland) and his son, who does not speak or interact with his father. Jake is obsessed with numbers and Martin (the father) finds that it's his way of communicating. Together they try to heal the pain of those around them. It is a beautifully done show, and I would highly recommend it.

An Announcement

The time has come, my faithful few. I have not wasted my time away from you (aside from having a baby). I have finished editing and formatting "The Threshold Child," and now all it needs is some kick-butt cover art before it will be published. Don't worry, I will post the link as soon as it become available. Until then, here is a link to the blog of the artist I have commissioned to do the cover art. Hopefully, it will grab your interest!

Heart List: Ballroom Dancing

There are few things I love to do more than ballroom dancing. Granted, I'm not very good at it, but I love it all the same. Gliding through the steps with music sweeping over's a rare experience. I can't blame people for wanting to be professional dancers, because who wouldn't want to have that feeling for their whole career? I've been thinking about it a lot lately, but it's not something you can just go and do. At least, not around here. Alas! Maybe I'll just have to open my own fancy old-fashioned club where people can come and pretend like they live in a more glamourous era (like the one pictured here).

Heart List: Rita's

Goodness! It has been hot lately! I've really been craving Rita's, but there aren't any where I currently live. Very sad. I was first introduced to Rita's while visiting my sister (and our nation's capital). It's a little place that truly sells happiness (along with Italian Ice and frozen custard)! The custard is rich and creamy, and the ice tastes like it's flavored by a little piece of heaven. I had passion fruit flavored ice with a layer of vanilla custard on top, and it was seriously the best thing I've tasted in a long time! If you're ever out on the east coast, be sure to look up the Rita's closest to you!
