F.E.A.R

Okay. No putting it off any longer. What am I doing in 2019? There is a PHENOMENAL amount of work that needs poking with sharpened graphite sticks, for starters. A year's worth of failed poetry, to be picked apart and then reconstructed... before I start thinking about the new things I'd like to do. 24 … Continue reading F.E.A.R

Sleigh Ride

It's mid November, and although it might be a wee bit early to shove up the decorations, we can start the process of planning for next month.
