In the midst of Trump's Muslim Ban, I wanted to share one of the most beautiful experiences I've had while traveling - a hot air balloon ride in Turkey (which isn't part of the ban, but is 90% Muslim).

“Is your book/screenplay/essay done?”

No. No, it is not. Based on current estimates, there is a slim chance that we will finish before the earth is swallowed by the sun.

(In today's post, I talk about this and other things you probably shouldn't say to a writer.)

I visited the North Carolina Museum of History, which tells a biased, apologist, and not-entirely-accurate story about the Civil War. 

Oh, and upstairs was a special exhibit dedicated to Billy Graham. 

The North Carolina Museum of History tells an apologist, biased version of the history of the Civil War.

I found it appalling.

"I’m unclear on how to activate cashews, so I place them on a laptop computer that’s playing the scene from Weird Science where they bring Kelly LeBrock to life."

"The root of this problem isn’t about whether or not you have kids. It’s about being decent to one another, and respecting someone else’s life and the choices that they’ve made (or the ones they’ve been unable to make), even when they are radically different from your own. There’s no war. There’s just people being shitty to one another because they’re looking for external validation for really big life questions that don’t have a clear answer."

I visit the Sixth Floor Museum. It was from here that Lee Harvey Oswald aimed a rifle onto Elm Street and fired, assassinating JFK.

I dressed up as Fezzik the Giant from the Princess Bride. As one does.

My beloved and I visit Haddon Hall, aka Prince Humperdinck's castle from The Princess Bride. 

And yes, we do have fun storming it.
