Shutting the site down

I’m going to be shutting this site down and letting the aether have the domain name. My writing and I have taken a different direction and this site and domain no longer suit it.

Neither Good nor Bad

The spot where stories were is empty. There’s a book that is unfinished, but I don’t feel the need to finish it. In fact, I’m considering unpublishing my self-published books.

I have been more than absent from this blog, and am considering taking it down. Releasing the URL is also an option. I really don’t feel that it represents me or my creative endeavors.

The first Kissaki 2 gold nib

I have been deeply afraid of working with gold nibs as a base for stacking projects. The spectre of melting holes in nibs that cost so much money haunts me. But, you know, you have to do things that scare you or you’ll never move beyond it. What you’re looking at here is my first… Continue reading The first Kissaki 2 gold nib

Cat Rescue Fail

Since I left my job in April, I’ve been feeding our local feral cat population. That’s also included working on socializing them. This has been a challenge and a joy. One of the cats, Moon (my name for her), was pregnant at the time. I decided that I’d take the kittens to King Street Cats… Continue reading Cat Rescue Fail
