Bodies in Prison, Bodies in Space

My old pal, Rev. Dean Bucalos, former interim minister of my church and pastor of Luther Luckett Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)–Luther Luckett Correctional Complex being the home of Shakespeare Behind Bars, by the way–has been named to the board of Missions Behind Bars and Beyond. The mission of this organization is to reduce recidivism by one third through education and post-release support. Congratulations, Missions Behind Bars and Beyond–you have a good man at your back!

My husband and I are addicted to The Teaching Company‘s Great Courses lectures. Right now, we’re listening to “Big History: The Big Bang, Life on Earth, and the Rise of Humanity“. We just got to the formation of stars which, naturally, made me think of They Might Be Giants and their song “The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas“.

Speaking of The Teaching Company, I hope you’ll check out Barbara J. King’s courses, and check her Friday Animal Blog today and every Friday for some fascinating reading. Don’t be shy about commenting, either–she’s way nice!

WRITING PROMPT: If your main character bought any of The Teaching Company’s courses, what would it be? Would he/she actually listen/view the lectures, or mean to but never do it, or leave the tapes out so people would be impressed?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Love the writing prompts you have at the end of your posts. Good food for writing thought. About the courses – I’m plowing ahead with The Rosetta Stone (German)
