It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

I have just realized that it’s been a week, A WEEK since I last posted. That was not intentional, the last seven days were just everywhere and my routine was thrown off-kilter. Today I'm going to let you know about the things that have been getting conjured up creatively and what’s been going on in other corners… Continue reading It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On

I had planned for this post to be a good ol' ramble about how social media is treating me since I returned the other day, but I'm saving it for another time. A: because I want to go a full week before reporting on the pitfalls and positives of being back. And B: because I… Continue reading Just So You Know, Some Wyrd Stuff Is Going On

The Kid Who Loved The Dark – The Groke

If, like me, you grew up in the 90s, it's more than likely you watched Moomin, the Japanese-Finnish-Dutch animation television series, also known as 'Moominvalley,' 'Tales from Moominvalley,' and 'Adventures from Moominvalley.' And it's likely you had a favourite character. My favourite happened to be the Groke. Up until a few years ago, my knowledge… Continue reading The Kid Who Loved The Dark – The Groke

In These Last Days Of Winter – Snowdrops

Last week, the snowdrops in the garden were hunkered down as if sleeping. Today though, I noticed their heads were lifted and they appeared wide awake. Despite looking as fragile as could be, snowdrops are extremely hardy and one of the very first spring bulbs to pierce snow cover - the leaf at the top… Continue reading In These Last Days Of Winter – Snowdrops

It’s Been A Strange Day – Sunday Musings

It's been a strange day. The whole weekend has been odd, actually. I've been kind of floating around, feeling all out of sorts, and I haven't been able to put my finger on exactly why I'm feeling this way. I don't know if it's because we're approaching the end of winter, or because my poetry… Continue reading It’s Been A Strange Day – Sunday Musings

On Feeling Off

It's been a peculiar sort of day. I'm not exactly sure what's up, I just feel...off. In theory, I should be really happy. I had a good morning writing a poem about Akutuq AKA Eskimo Ice Cream. (Great article about it here.) I had a good run and came home with 500 Post-It-Notes. (I'm a… Continue reading On Feeling Off

For The Sake Of Dark Art – Sophie Lécuyer

Anyone else think this month is going by disturbingly fast? The more I urge February to just slow the fuck down, the quicker it goes. It's the end of my third week with no social media and I'm breathing easier. I think I'll write something lengthy about the experience when the end of the month… Continue reading For The Sake Of Dark Art – Sophie Lécuyer

Art Of Hel

At my Waldorf school, World Mythology played a significant role in the curriculum, though it was Norse Mythology that had a lasting impact on me. Hel and her brother Fenrir were the characters that enthralled me most of all. But I suppose that won't come as a surprise! I haven't spent much time thinking about… Continue reading Art Of Hel

Is It Snowing Where You Are? – Winter Art & Words

I spend much of my days researching into and writing about Winter. I'll be writing about Winter as the seasons shift, and the days become longer and warmer, and then, as we move into the colder months again. I'm already anticipating the diary I'll keep from November, by which time I'll hopefully be in Norway.… Continue reading Is It Snowing Where You Are? – Winter Art & Words
