Old Long Since

In my New Year’s message last year, I mentioned not reading the news but creating stories instead. Little did we know what a horrific year it would turn out to be, making news junkies out of us all. Last year felt like ten years with the blitzkrieg of events unfolding before us.

If you’re reading this, I wish you and yours peace, health, and well-being. I hope it’s not too far out of reach. I pray that 2021 is better for all of us in more ways than one. Keep making things if you feel like it.

New Year, New Message

Here we are at the dawn of a new decade. Troubling times. I try not to read the news too much these days. Instead, what I choose to do is make things. 

They’re just thoughts, ideas and stories, but hopefully they can help you notice things you’d never give a second look. Or help you recall a feeling you had before and forgot. At least that’s my goal. We’ll see how it goes.

Watch this space for consistent things from me. Scribblings. Tales. Rants. All on a regular basis. This is a promise. I’m counting on you to keep me honest. 

May the New Year bring all of us a much needed dose of compassion, well-being and humanity. And I hope you’ll choose to make things too.
