365: Day 15- Little baby girl

There's no place like home If you had the opportunity to live a nomadic life, traveling from place to place, would you do it?  Do you need a home base?  What makes a place "home" for you? Well, this is a alarmingly similar prompt to the other nomadic inquest.  No, I don't want to roam … Continue reading 365: Day 15- Little baby girl

365: Day 3- Nomad time

This is day 3 of a year long trip through a WordPress prompt list. If you could live a nomadic life, would you?  Where would you go?  How would you decide?  What would life be like without a "home base"?

Atheists are for Real. I think.

I am looking at a little baby girl, right now.  She is squinting with a toothy grin and holding her peanut butter jelly sandwich, aloft, in exultation.  She is merely the product of competitive traits edging each other out over millions of years.  Her physiology is sufficient to support accelerated intellectual processes that will render … Continue reading Atheists are for Real.
