  • Post-Refresh Updates

    Now that the site is up and running again, what’s new? (Other than, y’know, the entire look?) What’s still on my to-do list?

  • … is this thing on?

    So… the hiatus lasted a little longer than I planned.

  • On Hiatus

    Starting on Saturday, December 18, 2021, the site is going to be offline for a little while. I’m not sure how long, exactly. Most of the difficult work is already done, and now I’ve got to put the pieces in place. Which seems straightforward enough, but I’m prepared for chaos. So who knows. But the site will be back shortly, in a new and much-improved version.

  • A little bit of housekeeping.

    Just a quick note to let you know that there won’t be a ‘Cultural Consumption’ column this month. I think I only finished one book (worth mentioning…) and one movie (… ditto…) in the entire second quarter of 2021, so I’m going to roll that into the Q3 column.

  • A bit of housekeeping.

    I’ve decided that it’s time to retire the ‘Sketchbook’ column as a formal, regularly-scheduled thing.

  • Christmas Eve, 2020

    Christmas Eve, 2020

    The season looks different this year, and I know it’s going to be difficult for some of you. Whatever this time of year means to you, however it’s changed, I hope you’re able to find some joy—and a little bit of peace—in it.

  • Out of Office – September 2020

    Another year, another storm.

    This year, it’s Hurricane Teddy. The wind is starting to pick up, and the rain has started, but the storm itself isn’t going to hit until later today or overnight. (It’ll probably be a post-tropical storm at that point, but still strong.) I’m ready—everything’s tied down and all batteries are charged, I’ve got snacks and books—but as usual, I expect to lose power at some point.

    The last two weeks have been pretty good, all things considered. I’ve been: finishing | learning | making | working | feeling | organizing | hating | loving | revamping | looking

    It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. I’ve been: realizing | ordering | having | wishing | regrouping | turning | trying | solving | getting | starting

  • Electricity.

    I’m back!

    I hope. The power came back on for about an hour this morning, and just as I was starting to let my guard down—putting my phone on the charger, turning on the computer to write this post—it went out again. I still don’t entirely trust that it’s really back this time.
