Welcome to the Dark Forest

Winter Scene in Swiftwater Pennsylvania

I have always loved wandering in the woods. It doesn’t matter to me whether I’m in a mossy, damp New England forest, a Pocono forest of rocks and tall trees, an English forest of hedgerows, wildflowers and meadows or a South Florida tropical jungle.

There is something magickal and mystical about being in the woods. Even on a sunny day, a forest is dark and cool. You can believe that faeries lurk behind the rocks and trees. The beauty of the forest inspires us to believe in magick.

Many years ago, The Dark Forest was the name I gave to my own inner world; the place of my own imaginings and contemplation.

I have a wide range of interests. Beyond my love of tarot and my interest in spiritual development, I enjoy modern culture. Trends in music, fashion, entertainment and politics fascinate me. On this blog you will find my observations about the world in which we live - everything from dating advice to resturant reviews.

Here in the Dark Forest, anything can happen. If something captures my interest, I am likely to write about it here.

Thanks for exploring this dark forest with me. Please leave a comment!

Lake Worth is one of my favorite cities of all time, because it boasts such a wide variety of cultural offerings. This week I explored something different when my kids took me to Tacos al Carbon.

Tacos al Carbon consists of a corner lot in Lake Worth. There is a small restaurant with tables, and a window for outside service. There are a variety of picnic tables, one open food truck serving tacos, and a fleet of food trucks that I assume are waiting for rush hours and weekends.

Our society has made not living up to certain physical standards an acceptable reason to discount, trivialize and dehumanize our fellow human beings.

All new relationships feel like they are meant to be, and all new relationships have some red flags.

Kevin Hart’s new movie, “Think Like a Man Too,” was number one at the box office this past weekend. Movie critics are celebrating Hart as the next Hollywood sensation. Personally, I think the praise is deserved. Hart is funny, good-looking and basically inimitable.

I will always think of Kevin Hart as the not-so-talented sorcerer Zezelryck in the cult favorite “Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire.”

Tom Cruise's new "Edge of Tomorrow" did not leave me on the edge of my seat!

No, the heat is not killing you. Yes, you might benefit from a more positive choice of words.
