Art, talent, skill, appreciation

Recently I got the chance to go to a student showcase at the studio I've been attending out here in Seattle, Emerald City Trapeze. The showcase was a performance of advanced students, not professionals, but those students had to audition and perform at a level far beyond my own scope of expertise. Performances included a...

The last leg

At the beginning of October we moved into our final apartment (well, my final apartment) in Seattle! It's a basement apartment in a nice, residential neighborhood where the backyard is full of goats and chickens. I feel almost like I'm back in Virginia.

My brother got married on the 21st, we bought... Continue Reading →

What makes it YA?

I read widely in Young Adult novels when this classification of books first started making an appearance, and really loved some of the stories I found there. But I... Continue Reading →

Checking in with the writer

It is May and spring is here! I usually do a half-year check-in and I am probably still going to do that to speak directly towards my 2021 goals, which I'm pretty sure I probably had. I usually do? Anyway, this post is not that. This post is just a regular old check-in about life.... Continue Reading →
