    One Image Every Day

    Back in 2009 I did a 365 photography project. In a project like this, you commit to making one image every day for the year. It can be a pretty serious undertaking, especially if you’re a busy person or have a very routine life, and especially if both of these things are true. Both of…

  • Back to the Bloggin’ Life

    Hello internet! Welcome (back) to my blog! I remember back when I first heard of blogging, in 2004. It was a new thing, this writing and posting and interacting on the internet, in your own space that didn’t belong to some big company, where you could talk about whatever you wanted for as long as…

  • 2012 Project: Sky Scarf

    I learned to knit a few years ago and loved it, but between work, writing and life I hardly ever have any time to do it. So I’ve decided to ease back into knitting with a 365 knitting project. Yes, I know how ridiculous that sounds, but this is project that should be fairly easy…

  • Hello 2012, or What I Was Up To In 2011

    Hello, internet, I’ve missed you. Last winter I started off the year with the belief that I was going to blog regularly.  I thought that if I expanded my blog topics to include, well, everything, that I’d never run out of things to blog about.  What I didn’t realize was that it wasn’t a shortage…

  • 2011: New Year, New Attitude

    It’s pretty obvious that in 2010 I was a serious blog slacker. My slackage was due in part to simply being busy, between the move, the new city and the day job. The other part was that I just didn’t know what to post. True to its name, this blog has been a through a…

  • My Halloween Reading List

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love the modern incarnation with kids in costumes, trick-or-treating and jack-o-lanterns, but I also love the history of the holiday, the idea of thinning of the veil between the world of the living and the dead, and the centuries-old honoring of the balance between death and life.…

  • Cheers to You and Yours

    As not just a year but an entire decade comes to an end, there’s a certain feeling that one should look back on the last ten years and reflect on the highs, the lows and the changes. And while I have a lot of great memories with friends and family and I’ve grown immensely as…

  • Merry Christmas!!

    On November 30 the movers came and packed and loaded all our belongings, and that evening we got on a plane and flew to Seattle, Washington. In the last 3 weeks we found a new apartment in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, moved in and started unpacking. We’ve barely had time to breathe let…

  • Not Just a Tourist

    If you’re one of the few people that actually read my site on a regular basis (Hi Mom!) you might have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent lately. We’ll it’s been for a very good reason – I’m moving to Seattle! My husband, Jim, has taken a fantastic new job and we’re moving at…
