  • What Matters Most: Exploring Responsibility in Art
    on May 28, 2020 at 12:44 am

    Inspired by Responsibility I have been playing, lightly, this month with the idea of responsibility in my creative work. Asking the question: To what and whom am I responsible in my art?

  • Even Introverts Need Community
    on May 27, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    I love my alone time. As far as I can recall, I have ALWAYS loved my alone time. When I am alone, I am at home. There is no impulse to determine what other people around me might need.

  • How I Learned to Stop Faking It and Live Honestly as an HSP

    "Attention seeker." "You're too sensitive." "Cry baby." "Stop being so dramatic!" Those words followed me around as I developed from a child to a young teenager. Why couldn't I stop crying? Why did I get so overwhelmed at social gatherings? Why did I feel everything so intensely? Why […]
