Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

When Something Beautiful Breaks (by Heidi Priebe)

Posted 08-23-2017 at 10:01 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Tonight, I'm not feeling especially eloquent (actually, I'm in the midst of the dread, second-guessing, and mild self-loathing that come before writing an important part - or sometimes any part at all - of my WIP). But I do feel the need to reflect on a deep, moving essay from a writer I follow online. The following is entirely her work.

Don't Deny Who You Are

Posted 07-22-2017 at 09:37 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

It's common knowledge that you can lie to yourself. But recently I've realized you can also perpetuate a false version of reality without actually lying. All you have to do is ignore the truth. Pretend it doesn't matter. Claim it's all water under the bridge.

A few years ago, I discovered I was habitually lying to myself. I thought in order to succeed and to be loved by others, I had to be perfect. And every time I made a mistake or did something embarrassing or tripped over my own...

This poem is based on personal experience. Someone I respect once told me every family is dysfunctional. At the time, I thought that was a cynical viewpoint, but more recently, I've begun to wonder if it's true. Is there any way to live in close quarters with the same people for years and not exchange some psychological scars? Are there really people out there who don't dread going home sometimes? I've known people who appear to be fairly content with their family lives. If I ever have my own family,...

Reality, Terrorism, and Motives: Half-Asleep Musings

Posted 06-16-2017 at 11:26 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

Tonight the sky was mostly obscured by dark clouds, but in the middle of a huge block of cloud in the west, a chink remained open, showing a slice of the gold and pink sunset behind it. From that you could draw a cheesy Hallmark sentiment - "the sun's always there behind the clouds." But it's interesting to think about the fact that just because you can't see something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Later tonight, I watched the new Doctor Strange movie for the first time....

Learn to be Lonely

Posted 06-11-2017 at 10:51 PM by Ludlum'sDaughter14

When I was a little kid and my parents would take me to the grocery store, they tell me I would smile at people while in line for the cash register, persistently trying to get their attention until they smiled back.

When I was in seventh grade, I was terrified of talking to most people for fear of saying the one thing that would make them think I was stupid and lead them to reject me forever. My one semi-close friend (whose forceful, roller coaster personality I could tolerate better...
