Ever since I can remember, I've been obsessed with the written word. Perhaps this is the result of my insatiable sense of curiosity, as it has allowed me to find answers on my own beyond "Because"- my dad's response when I finally exhausted his knowledge or his attention for the moment. From the age of 6 I've had some sort of journal going. The medium has changed over the years as technology has progressed, from paper to the screen. Starting with a Xanga in 2003, I've had a blog of one sort or another around- a playground of my thoughts and theories as I've learned more about life on planet earth. As I've aged I have taken a more topical approach to organizing my ramblings. My more recent sites include-
Death Becomes Us
This blog has my most current writing, with a topic of facing death and all that comes with it. In my experience so far I have already lost many folks that have meant a great deal to me and were some of my greatest supporters in life. As my relationship with death has increased (as it is wont to do), over time I have come to different ways of looking at it. Through grieving for them and my own mortality, figuring out how to keep moving myself, despite the weight of these losses and live my life to the fullest. In this writing, I desire to honor those that gave so much of themselves to me so that I could do just that.
Always Follow The White Rabbit
Full Disclaimer- I began this particular blog when I was entering what I would later come to see was an existential crisis. In other words, I was about to become a bit of a hot mess. It doesn't make it any less important to me- instead I find that those times when we are prone to more mistakes often yield the greatest long term growth. At the time I was over ten years in at my first "career" job, questioning everything that had led to where I found myself. This blog is about me recognizing that I AM an artist, always have been and always will be. I learned this is who I am and that this part of me needs outlets and attention for life to go smoothly overall. You will also find some samples of my older artwork in the "Gallery" section.
