Trump is not a good man

There. I’ve said it. Our current president is not a good man. I’m not saying I am. None of us are good on our own. Our righteousness is as filthy rags. I know mine is. But that is not what I’m talking about folks. I’m talking about plain human decency. About making an effort To […]

I really don’t want to love … may I please not?

I admit, there are times (many times), when I want to lash out. When I want to despise someone, or even a group. I try not to though. I hope I’m not failing more often than I think I am. Because… As much as I would like to find out that it is okay to […]

How large were my problems?

As I mentioned in my last post, I had a testing of faith a bit over five years ago, when my world as I knew it simply ceased to exist. I turned to friends, church members and the normal outlets. Each well wishing person had advice, biblical or secular, and many I believe truly empathized […]

A change of direction

For many years I’ve run this blog as a literary review journal. While this use may continue from time to time, this is not likely to remain VfV’s sole purpose. I have, like many others, been aghast at what I see happening in our country. Unlike many others that feel this way, I come from […]

A call for support!

I’m taking a moment from my normal want today to bring to mind something that all of us that listen to podcast novels know, but might have forgotten. As you might have guessed from the title, that is supporting your favorite podcast authors. Now, before you turn away, knowing you’ve heard it all before, let […]

with honour

Everyone has heroes. Some choose to honour those they’ve never met. Others choose to honour and show respect for those that first show them honour and/or respect. While I would never choose to tell anyone how to do anything, I choose my heroes carefully. I grew up in a small town in Wyoming. Approximately 5000 […]

Thank you Sar

Many of you are authors. Many of you give as much content away for free as you can. My life would be so much the less if you had not gone this route. I have just finished Owner’s Share, as many of you have. Reminiscing  over the course of Ishmael’s journey, contemplating where he might […]

Podcast Challenge – Part 2

Why? I am currently celebrating the one year anniversary of View from Valhalla. My, how quickly a year goes, and how much things change. When I first started this blog, I had no idea what I would be doing with it. I knew I had opinions (hence the tagline) and I knew I loved social […]

Just the facts…

An interesting article was brought to my attention earlier by a link shared on Twitter. Being interested, I clicked the link and read this article in which the author describes the overall service provides with general accuracy. She then seems to disparage the authors that would be content to give away content for free. […]

thirteen cents

If you are reading this, there is a fair chance you follow me on Twitter, or have been reading my series of Podcast Reviews. If either of those are true, thank you. However, if either of those are true, you’ve also more than likely heard of the tragedy that has struck one of the founders […]
