2023 Reading List

Whew, this year has been a whirlwind of absurdity, and still, I've somehow managed to stay connected with actual time.  

Huh?  What is she on about this time??

So, I do this thing (it started in the last ten years or so) where my head-time, or the time of year it feels like to me doesn't match with chronological time, or the page on the calendar.  Like ... We'll all be in October, doing October-y things, but my head will still be back in April, or somewhere.  This year however, for the first time in a very long time, my head and calendar seem to be on the same page.  I'll admit, May is getting a bit away from me, I mean here we are with June just around the corner, and I'm feeling a little April-y about it all, but I think I can sync up in the next few days, and put things right again.

Viva la Revolución

With the close of 2022 came the Pantone "forecast" announcement of the new Color of the Year for 2023.  Now ... If you're new around here, you may not be familiar with my Pantone gripe.  The good news is, you can read more about it over here.  The, uhm, other news is that you will very quickly discover how wordy I am.  I'd apologize, but honestly?  I clearly needed to get all of that off my chest, like, it can't be healthy to hold that much animosity for the color equivalent of groundhog's day -- A harmless holiday(?) that means nothing, but also kind of something..?

Pssst ... Don't Forget

“Life was meant to be experienced—fall in love. Leave your hometown. Read all the books. Buy the vinyl. Go back to school. Sleep with who you want. Book the flight. Pick up a new hobby. Write more letters. Send that text. Take all the selfies.

Live this life, lovingly.”

Let the Good Times Roll...

Have we done it?  

Have we managed to make it through another year with all of our marbles?

Firelight, Firelight, Firelight Gleaming

"I like misty Autumn mornings, 

and cold, snowy Winter nights.  

Rainstorms bring me inner-peace, 

thunder sets my soul alight. 


I care not for Summer, 

days too long, the heavy heat.  

Give me candlelight evenings, 

early darkness, a silent street."

-Natalia Crow
