Last night, Wendy put the Lost Boys to sleep at my feet by telling them a bedtime story about Mr. and Mrs. Darling and their three children and a boy named Peter Pan. This was a well chosen story, as apparently Peter’s favorite stories are ones about himself. The Playhouse Troupe at the Cloverdale Playhouse […]

We spent this past weekend up in Birmingham at SlossFest. We’d never been, but when this year’s lineup was released we said: “We have got to go to this!” We hadn’t heard of most of the bands that would be playing, but we figured that Run the Jewels, Widespread Panic, Sturgill Simpson and the Alabama […]

Our City’s New Public Pool!

Our City’s New Public Pool!

“Swimming pools and public space generally have the potential to foster a vibrant community life by counteracting many of the segmenting and alienating aspects of modern life. They offer an informal social space — a meeting ground — where people separated by differences, large yards and high fences, busy lives, and electronic entertainment can interact […]

We all know the adage “God works in mysterious ways”. As a rescue director and animal lover from birth, I see God’s hand in so many situations. Sometimes a pet is the one thing that keeps a person from giving up. Sometimes a pet provides security, and sometimes, a pet is the catalyst for a […]

“Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder: as if creation rose bathed in the light, out of the darkness, utterly new and fresh and astonishing. The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us.” – Eugene Ionesco One of the themes at the Playhouse this season is embracing the simple, honest joy […]

We love to go to Biscuits games early in the season, when there’s still a touch of cool spring in the air, and every single professional baseball team is within striking distance of first place. The world is full of promise. This year, we didn’t make it to our first Biscuits game until June, but […]

Just the other day Eleanor Upchurch and I were on Facebook commenting about how much we miss Capitol Book and News. But (as the adage goes) when one door closes another opens. As I am sure all you cool people now know, a new bookstore is opening at New South Books. While the bookstore is […]

Dragons and Pirates and Bullies, Oh, My!

Dragons and Pirates and Bullies, Oh, My!

By on 26 May, 2017 in Art, Fun, Sarah Thornton with 0 Comments

“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” -Rainer Maria Rilke I’ve been thinking a lot lately about bullies. We all have had experiences […]
