I like living. I like friends, music, love, sports, family. I like reading, writing, thinking. I like you. I like me. All of these somehow bring me closer to God.

World of the Ring by Jian Guo

Middle-Earth seems like it’s a pretty happening place: plenty of exotic locales to explore, elves handing out gifts, trees to ride when your footses ache, and treasure available only to those courageous enough to take it. If it ever existed in a Tolkien novel or note, then Jian has probably drawn it: his jaw-droppingly resplendent masterpieces tell just as enthralling a story as the novels they emulate… though in considerably fewer words. The lead image: “A Long Adventure with a Hobbit” is available in print form at Jian’s DeviantArt.

My love. She is the love of my life. She’s so kind to me.

It occurred to me, upon reading this article, that without even knowing it, I have done the impossible: I have married Mr. Darcy.
He, a proud, Texan, Pentecostal pastor’s son. She, a bookish introvert from an inferior social class, only pretty when seen through the eyes of someone who loves her. I am amazed by the caring, empathetic man he’s becoming, but Ryan’s still thoroughly Darcy. Devilishly handsome & clever, he will always make me weak at the knees.




“I see that this must be the most abiding female fantasy of all—to meet a proud, bad boy and to make him love us and only us.”
“Because his creator wanted to believe that a man could love a woman for herself alone and, by believing it and writing it with transcendent talent, she made it true.”




(In true Darcy form, Ryan hates Pride and Prejudice, of course.)
2012 has been a whirlwind of a year with many blessings, bittersweet moments, and surprises. We find ourselves newlywed and living a thousand miles away from our families. And, by God’s good grace, we’re content, at long last.
I’ll be snuggling up on our $13 couch tonight with my Darcy, our puppy, and a cheap bottle of sparkling cider. Lots of love from us to you. Here’s to 2013!

My Thoughts on Star Wars and Disney
My initial reaction was diluted by the amount of information we got in October. Lucasfilm was bought by Disney and George Lucas wrote a treatment for 3 MORE STAR WARS MOVIES. Sorry. I didn’t mean to yell. That little fact, is actually the one that I’ve had the hardest time getting my head around. But I think I’ve got it square now.
So, let’s talk Disney. Disney is a giant corporation. They own a tremendous amount of media, many of which don’t have the Disney branding (things like ABC, Miramax, ESPN, and the History Channel. Oh, and Marvel). And like any major corporation they’re going to do everything they can to make sure Star Wars and its characters are fully saturated into pop culture (as if they weren’t already). They’re also going to make sure that we get regular injections of Star Wars movies. So they can maximize profits.
Lucasfilm was always a kind of scrappy underdog. Saying “scrappy underdog” might sound weird for a company that has only produced blockbuster films, but they were. At their core the Lucasfilm made independent films financed out of pocket by the producer/director. You don’t get any more independent than that. Fox distributed Star Wars, but they didn’t pay a dime to make them. George Lucas made the prequels exactly how he wanted them and was beholden to no one. That’s impressive.
