I make stuff up.

Then I write it down. I publish the good bits.

I never really grew out of playing pretend or sitting cross-legged on the rug for storytime. Depending on my mood, I’m either four years old or eighteen or eighty.

I like cats. My cat told me so.

I geek out. A lot. And I’m really jazzed that geekery has widened to include more than Linux and gaming. (Not that there’s anything wrong with Linux or gaming. But there’s more out there, you know?) So what do I geek out on?

Food. I like really good, really interesting food. Especially food that doesn’t freak out my overactive immune system. Stupid allergies!

Art. But only the art I like. The art that tells me stories. A

It’s gotten a bit dusty and cobwebby around here!


Confession Time

I have a confession to make: I’ve been hanging out with my old nemesis, Burnout, for way too long. I won’t go into the gory details, but I went for too many months not writing or doing anything particularly creative. I was in survival mode.


But that’s not why I’m back. About six months ago, I stumbled upon mixed media art and started goofing off with p...mode.

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
“If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!”
Shel Silverstein

W.B. Yeats
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”
William Butler Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

Come in!
