A San Francisco Symphony Concert Review & Epiphany

You’re walking along. You’re minding your own business. It’s just another day in the day-to-day existence of another human being on planet Earth. Without a sound, as you meander about, a meteorite from some godforsaken corner of some galaxy you’ve never heard of bonks you on the head! I mean, what are the chances, right?!

TV Series Review: W1A

I’m not one to recommend television series. In fact, the last TV series I did recommend was the BBC’s extraordinary dramatic release: The Crown1. I’m eagerly awaiting the second season.
