I run. I read. I work. When I do these things I’m not smiling or beaming with joy. I’m not happy. In truth, when I do these things I’m often suffering. But I do them because I find them meaningful. I find them compelling. I do these things…Continue

From days before the fishes long ago within the mountains
On the fields of sand lost samurai measuring honor.
The uncontrollable dance of the…Continue

I began my book of shadows almost 20 years ago. It's been through a lot in that span of time, as have I, and it shows the wear and tear of the years. It's nothing special to look at, just…Continue

Stubborn witch. Tonight it broke through, and it's still…Continue
