*Blows off the dust* Hey there, blog. Sorry I haven’t used you much, lately. I know you don’t get a ton of readers, and I guess that made me neglect you. I’m going to try to do better. And hey there to you, people who do read my blog! It’s kind of been in limbo.… Continue reading Finding Purpose and Rhythm
Hey Readers, I know it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Sorry about that. Been dealing with a few setbacks, both minor and less minor. Living in New England, we’re no stranger to severe weather, and this is the time of year we get it. Over the past 2 weeks we’ve had 3 Nor’Easters,… Continue reading Barely Contained Mayhem
So. Howdy. How are you all doing? It’s been quite a while. I’ll be honest, I’ve been having a hard time writing this blog post. I’ve kind of been avoiding it, and I’m not sure why. At first it was because I was intent on doing a bunch of research on the comics I wanted… Continue reading A Little Bit of Honesty
I might have mentioned before that growing up, I was not a voracious reader, and I regret that. I did, however, develop an early love of fantastical worlds and deep narratives. You know how little kids tend to watch movies over and over and over again, which when I was growing up meant you eventually… Continue reading Tuppence for Your Thoughts…
Happy New Year, folks! I’m gonna keep this quick because there’s a huge storm here in New Hampshire, and I’m not sure if our power is going to get knocked out.

I wrote all the time, going through multitudes of college-ruled notebooks. Granted, I rarely finished these stories. I wrote down just… Continue reading Writing is…hard??
Good morning, dear readers! I can’t remember if I’ve written on this before, but I’m going to do it anyway! I think a lot about the balance of critique versus kindness, both in my job as an academic advisor for adult learners and in my interactions with other creative friends, most namely, my husby and… Continue reading On Critiquing and Kindness
Well we’re in the mid-holiday lull now. Thanksgiving has passed, and we can enjoy a few days of peace before things start ramping up again for Christmas. I’m pleased to say that Katie and I have used these past few days to their utmost! Lulach Beryl is back on track, with episode 9 recorded and… Continue reading Meditating at Dawn, TSO at Dusk
Hey Readers! It can be tough getting back into the swing of things when you’ve been out of it for a few weeks. I’ll admit, it took some mental effort to sit down and write this. In my defense, I’ve been up since 4:45, and it’s now 9:20 pm. That said, I want to make… Continue reading On Being Vulnerable
Greetings, dear readers! Today I want to share with you some resources I’ve been using lately to hone my skills as an artist. Unfortunately, the Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree I earned from my university purposefully ignored many important areas of art, such as illustration, sequential art, digital art, and anything pertaining to imagination or… Continue reading Learning Is FUN! (no really, it is!)
