Victoria Zigler is a blind vegan poet and children's author.

If I can't manage to find it in me to work on anything though, I'll take some time out to do something else without thinking about writing for a few days (read, watch movies, etc). By the time I've done that, I'm usually ready to work on at least one of the pieces I have on the go again.(less)

The photos at the top of this post were taken a couple of days after we moved here.  They're from December 9th 2020.  I'd hoped to make that new computer room window view part of a post about the new house by now, but I haven't had a chance to sort photos of indoors.  Admittedly that's partially - in fact, if I'm honest, mostly - because I'm reluctant to show you the chaos things are stil

Donna Barr

“I am very frustrated by fear of imagination, I don’t think that’s healthy.”
J.K. Rowling

“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning do to do afterward.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“Gin a body meet a body
Coming thro' the rye,
Gin a body kiss a body—
Need a body cry?”
Robert Burns
