On Mandrakes, Harry Potter, and Transplanting
I have recently had an epiphany of sorts. A most unexpected one. But it's funny how God speaks sometimes. I've realized just how close I am to being a Mandrake (or Mandragora). If you're not a Harry Potter fan, the Mandrake is a plant with a root that looks...

Who do you think you are? You don't fit in here. You don't know what's in style. You don't even know what to talk about with these people. You're basically an alien. No. You're wrong. They aren't really there. It couldn't last that long, that distance. You'...

The Wonder of America // A TCK
When we were in America two years ago our friend took O for a walk around her neighborhood. When they returned, he walked in the door and said, "Mama, Nina says I'm inquisitive." After I picked my jaw up from the floor, I replied, "She did? What does that m...
