Georgia O’Keeffe’s City Scapes

Most people know her as the flower lady. And some people know about her bones and Southwest themes. I knew not many people know about her city scapes or her crosses.

Friday Night

Tonight I don’t feel very write-y. It’s been a day, a week. First, there was taking a child for a physical in the morning– I hate doctor appointment days, they throw me off schedule.

Favorite Books of 2019

(I’m still, perhaps madly, hoping to maybe catch up on my reading notes for the last few months of 2019, but in the meantime, I put together this list for a friend and thought I’d share it here.) My favorite books that I read in the past year: 1. I re-read The Brothers Karamazov (Richard […]

After Long Silence…

It’s been a long time since I opened the Add New Post tab on my browser. And even longer since I actually finished and posted a blog entry. There are a few drafts that never made it very far, withering on the branch. Some seasons of life are fertile and some are fallow. This has […]
