Sting and a tale of evil

I just came home from a Sting concert, part of the Symphonicity tour. It was a display of fantastic musicianship, beautifully arranged orchestral hybrids of Sting’s songs.

Break a Habit Today

Humans are masters of habit. It makes absolutely perfect sense for a cave man to keep coming back to that water hole, to stay with the same shelter, to eat the same kind of fruit (that is unlikely to be toxic) as always before. Sticking with good habits was a survival strategy, and it is […]
