Holiday spirit?

I did a little knitting tonight, but the thing I really want to share with you is our xmas tree. This is the busiest, most stressful xmas season I've had in as long as I can remember. Between finishing my degree, starting a new job, and moving, there's just not a lot of mental or... Continue Reading →

Day 130: A Poem

This week's prompt from my writing group was "Oh don't worry about them, they'll never tell."

Toxoplasma when you yearn to break the spell - the doom etched into each cell of your body, you expel... Continue Reading →

Day 65: A poem

More poetry today! And once again I'm not posting it here, sorry. This time it isn't personal or sad, it's just very work-related. As a consolation prize, please enjoy this photo of my handsome boy.
