MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Often times as we grow up, we cease to experience the awe that we once had when encountering things of great beauty and truth. Imagine a young child hearing a new fun song. It brings them great joy and sometimes they will play it over and over and dance until they drop. Or imagine a child being told a great story for the first time. They are immediately filled with awe and wonder. This Christmas, allow yourself to be a child of wonder and joy. Don't be blinded by the stubbornness and pride that we as adults often let numb us to things of great simplicity in beauty and truth. When you can do this, you will be among those "For Whom The Bell Tolls." #WelcomeToTheAdventure

What do our favorite stories, heroes, and villains tell us about morality? Anyone who has studied literature knows that a good story has many different conflicts overlapping and intertwining. Is it possible that these levels of conflicts are a representation of a deeper conflict in our own reality?
