It Takes a Village to Raze a Mother: Musings on the Artist/Parent/Academic Network and Pregnancy Updates at 27 Weeks

I’ve been wanting to update again for a while, but time is very cramped. I don’t even have the time now! But I will begin this, and save a draft, and keep it going over time until it’s done enough to share. It’s honestly been a month since I began writing this, but whatever it […]

Aren’t you glad it didn’t say we’re moving again? We are in fact, but that’s not why I’m writing this here post. You see, on top of the good news of Hannah getting the tenure-track¬†gig at SEMO in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, she’s also pregnant. I suppose the coupley¬†way to say it is “we’re pregnant”, but […]

911 Diaries: More About my 16-Year-Old Brain Than You Ever Wanted to Know

I was writing in my sketchbook/journal the very moment I heard about the attacks on 9/11/2001. This isn’t unusual, since I was pretty much always writing in my sketchbook back in those days. As many of you know, my Uncle Cole worked in the Pentagon and was killed that day, but we didn’t know it […]

Egg Muffins with spinach, onions, garlic, and hog sausages the neighbors made. WARNING. AS USUAL, THIS POST CONTAINS WAY TOO MANY PHOTOGRAPHS. JUST KEEP SCROLLING.
