Forgive the lack of posting lately. It’s been somewhat busy in the small microcosm of the Freeman household. Boo recently was neutered.

I don’t often post about more incendiary topics, but today is different. Yesterday, I posted what now seems like a very tone-deaf post about brunch, though that was not my intention and I could not have anticipated the violence and unrest that would occur throughout the late afternoon and evening in downtown Chicago.

The inspiration for this post all started from the movie I watched this weekend. A fairly weak “thriller” film, The Phantom in the Theatre, was something I picked on Netflix because many Asian thriller/horror films are awesome.

Truth be told, I’m not one for resolutions or steep goal setting. I don’t like to set myself up for feeling like a POS if I deviate from a plan. So the less rigid the plan or intention, the better! Still, I think now that half of 2018 has passed, it’s a good time to …
