Archive for the ‘Game of Thrones’ Category

I remember some buzz being generated a few years ago about the amount of action in Game of Thrones that could be traced back to Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aiden Gillen).  Were I pressed to venture a guess, I would probably put that amount at about 95%.

Two or three of Littlefinger’s actions in Season One produced major domino effects, but even more (more…)

So Game of Thrones is over.

As a cultural phenomenon it will, I’m sure, endure indefinitely.  But the world no longer watches as the story unfolds.

I must confess my chagrin, as a devout Catholic, over an apparent dearth in Catholic voices conversant with G.O.T.  Most of what little (more…)

Into the Dance

Holy Family

Some of you may remember my post on the Advent Season, which I described as a season of hope and expectation, a couple weeks ago.

Well, now the wait is over.

Today, we celebrate the Daybreak.  The “Dawn from on High,” the eternal Beloved, the Light of lights, has come into the darkness of the world, born into poverty and cradled among animals within the earth.

The One Who rested on the seventh day has come to hallow creation with His holy Presence.  He has taken the fullness of our human nature and made it His own.

Indeed, the Incarnation was the greatest event in human history.  In fact, it completely and unalterably changed the course of history.  God is with us (“Emmanuel”).  He became a human being so that we could see him, speak with him, hear him, touch him…and, ultimately, taste him in the Eucharist.

As we approach…

Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion!
See, I am coming to dwell among you, says the LORD.

Silence, all mankind, in the presence of the LORD!
For he stirs forth from his holy dwelling.

A “reblog” from a few years ago, just to let people know I haven’t fallen off the map. Part 3 of Wind River is coming!

Into the Dance

This is a short film I made about nine months ago.  Just thought I’d share with my readers.

I will likely be away from the blog for the rest of the week due to a commitment.  Until then, I hope you enjoy “Hepzibah,” and I always welcome constructive criticism.

Below is part one; when you’re done, I encourage you to read part two (https://intothedance.wordpress.com/2014/02/08/olympics-and-the-spirituality-of-athletics-part-22/) as well 🙂

Into the Dance

Olympics_DiscusI must admit that I’ve never been able to get into sports.  I expect this is due mostly to the fact that I never made much of an effort to get involved in them as a child (mea culpa — mea maxima culpa).

But I have long had a kind of detached respect for sporting events, not least of all because of the family and inter-generational bonding they bring about.

Most of the people reading this will probably be watching the 2014 Winter Olympics in a couple days, if not tomorrow night…I’m counting on a number of people skipping the Opening Ceremonies (shame on them).  So perhaps I am a bit late, rather than early, in posting my thoughts the night before.

Nevertheless, here it goes…

Whenever we look at a good athlete in action, we notice that s/he has a certain poise or grace.  For him/her, the game…

Game_of_Thrones_Season_6I wasn’t sure whether I was going to watch Game of Thrones this year.  After some hemming and hawing, I decided to give it a shot (I’ve stuck with it this long, haven’t I?).

As it turned out, season six (more…)
