Confined within the Mind

Thanksgiving has been quite the double-edged sword this year. It has, unfortunately, kept me away from the computer for over a week, what with all the prep and cleanup. This was the first year we had the holiday at my house, and it turns out a lot is involved… However, this little break has also forced me to think about a lot of things, including the swirling, conflicted emotions and thoughts I have about one of my uncles. He has Alzheimer’s Disease, and the more time I spend with him and help to take care of him, the more I can’t help but question his thoughts, feelings, and actions.

The Group Shot

The Group Shot

Well, this is going to be a biased first Monthly Media Roundup… All of the novels I read during October were horror, and completely covered in my Halloween post, so I will only be discussing the manga and one American graphic novel.
