It occurred to me (actually it occurred to my therapist, who I actually listen to) that I know a lot about being ISOLATED and maybe some of my experience therein could be useful for some people…who are maybe doing this sort of thing for the first time, and maybe don’t like it very much, and… Read More The Hermit’s Lamp: Tips on Coping With Social Isolation from a Bonafide Shut-In!
Here’s the comic I made from the writing exercise from my previous post, ‘Write About What You See Out of the Window.’ I really prefer it to the original piece of writing, I think it says a lot more in a much more efficient manner. Communicating with words & pictures at the same time is… Read More ‘Out of the Window’ comic.
Hello beloveds! It’s been a wee while, hasn’t it? I’m sorry. I needed a step back to see how things were working out. I would like to say it was A Very Clever and Sensible Decision when really it was a Desperate and Confused Trudge into A Cave Like The Goblin I Am, but c’est… Read More I’m baaack…
I believe people I believe them without skepticism And I believe I fail at this when it suits me. I believe, a lot of the time, that I’m completely, totally and wholly insane. But at least that’s the end of it. After all, there’s not much to be done about being mad. I’m just… Read More I Believe
Allo beloved, How’s it gwan? How’s the new season treating you so far? I’ve been in a bit of a pit, to be honest, with lots of things touching uncomfortable spots that take me back years and years to places I’d rather forget I was in, ever, actually. But here we are. Everyone else who… Read More ‘You don’t know the depth of your strength.’ Regards, A Burnt Out Match
Ciao ciao beloveds, Happy Autumn Equinox, or Mabon, Harvest Home, whatever you like! I love Autumn Equinox, but it’s different in Houston. Different from how it is in England, I mean. That should be obvious, lots of things are different in Houston, but it’s one of the things that makes me feel very alienated from my community in… Read More Autumn Equinox in Houston is different…
Hallo Beloved! How are you? I’m finally back in H-Town from my holidays visiting my sister in England before a little jaunt to NY. It was such a big trip for facing fears it’s lovely to finally be back to ‘normal’ life! I’ve tried to go back to England a few times recently, it’s been almost a year since my last… Read More I Don’t Want to be a Fearless Girl
Hallo humans! Happy Full Moon in Scorpio! One of the bigger moons of the year, it’ll be bringing up problems we might’ve been ignoring, issues of suffocating or out-dated self-concepts, and bits of our lives where we’re stuck in inflexible stasis. My offering to you today is in tune with this. I’m working on shifting… Read More Self-Transformation and Identity/Mercury and Scorpio
Hallo Beloveds. This is an essay I sent my email subscribers (whose ranks you can join via this link) back at the beginning of March! It took me donkeys to write so I thought I’d share it a bit wider after-the-fact! How’s your spring springing? It’s still snowing on my in-laws in New York, and obscenely also… Read More Meditation, the ‘Other’ and Art
If you’re new to this series of essays on how to effectively set goals as a creative weirdo, Part 1 is a stock-check of what you’ve got to build with right now, and Part 2 deals with recognising & selecting dreams to work towards.
