Friendship lights it up

Friendship lights it up

We can see it, the acts of terrorism that pop up everywhere…in the debate on whether to take in refugees and open our hearts and lands to help or the fear that causes us to say shut the boarders, no one else!! We’ll be safe, turn them...

For Christopher

She felt limp, like a wrung out sponge smelling of mildew. Slightly nauseated. But surprisingly together. She sat, knees curled to one side in the corner of the charcoal velvet couch, fingers tracing the ring where someone had set a hot cup of tea. She leaned her head on the crook of her elbow and closed her eyes. It was halloween and thank goodness a...

Falling into darkness

Stem smooth and pliable, the fabric of leaf body stretched between veins of red. It catches on the ridges of my fingers and with my eyes closed I think I could dive into this. Dive deep into the meeting of my flesh with the flesh of the tree. Deep into the pulse which is faded but I still feel. Bump bump a rhythm faint a ghost of an impression, pressing...

The Five Personality Patterns

The Five Personality Patterns

Hello all! Last year I began work on an illustration project. It’s been years since I’ve actively dran. When my friend Steven Kessler invited me to take a stab at illustrating the personality patterns I had some trepidation. Ultimately I went for it because it felt like an invitation back into my long neglected craft.  It took us months, both...

Create a character in 250 words or less. Bells ring as I push open the door. It’s dusty and seems empty, but the sign outside did say open. I step in; let the door close behind me. It’s a small store covered floor to ceiling with books and Doctor Who key chains, Ugly Dolls, Game of Thrones bobble heads. As I walk in drawn to the stacks of science...

It’s been so long since I’ve felt like writing. I thought I’d write about my experience in Mirival with my dear friend, but when it came down to it, I didn’t want to.  I think this time after treatment is so transitional, it’s hard to know where to put my feet and when to start walking forward again. But every day goes by...
