Eternal Sunshine of the Present Mind

Dear Reader, Do you ever have a day that just doesn’t start until 2pm? I’m a morning person, so for me staying home any later than 8am is cause for alarm. However, today, I did not make it out the door until the middle of the afternoon and it’s not for lack of trying. Do […]

Keep on Giving

Dear Reader, When was the last time that you gave someone a handmade gift? Handmade gifts were a staple of my childhood. I even remember in grade school that sometimes around the holidays, the art project would be holiday themed and intended to be a gift for a parent. As an adult, handmade gifts always […]

A Peek into the Dollhouse

Dear Reader, Do you know those big, antique dollhouses that you can open in half and peer into all rooms? These dollhouses allow you to see every tiny detail within the interior and see how the spaces connect and relate to each other. There is a style of movie that I enjoy that reminds me […]

Beautiful, Complex, and Fragile

Dear Reader, How much can you ever really help someone change? In my early adult years, I was close to a few people who suffer from anxiety and depression.

You walk from your living room into your bed room. However, once you step into your bedroom and look around, […]

What’s in a Word?

Dear Reader, Needless to say, you are reading this right now. This probably also implies that you understand words to be more significant than typed letters on a page. I was thinking about writing recently and thought about how powerful it can be. A few words one day on J.K. Rowling’s laptop years later turned […]

I’m Only Here for the Experience

Dear Reader, Have you ever been part of a big production, like for theater, a workshop, or an exhibition? These sorts of projects are similar in that they usually involve a team, a lot of prep work, and months of planning for a relatively short event. When you work on such a project it usually […]

Sing a Song for Sanity

Dear Reader, Do you ever just feel… crazy? By this I mean, that you feel totally unlike yourself. One example of this could be if you were sleep deprived and you started seeing things or hearing things, or just forgetting really basic things. Another example, could be feeling really stressed and taking unnecessary risks. Things […]
