Has it really been a year?

Posted May 13th, 2021

It’s been almost a year since I’ve posted anything on my blog. I suspect my reasons for not posting are pandemic blues. At first — in fact for months and months — I thought I was handling isolation well. I told people I’d learned that I don’t like crowds, which I don’t if people are pushing and shoving like at an airport gate or at a concert. But I do miss being with friends and students at school and I miss my friends who used to come here for supper and who we met up with a few times in their garage.  Not being able to hug family was killer. And teaching completely online proved to be not fun for me. I missed seeing my students’ smiles and nods of understanding or uncensored comments that argued against or for one idea or another.

I’m looking forward to coming back out into the world in many ways. Being in a classroom. Traveling. Eating with and hugging my family. What have you missed?

Making a graphic memoir….

Posted March 18th, 2020

I’m teaching a 4 week graphic novel workshop and so I decided I could create my own graphic memoir comic as an example. This is a bit blurry but I can work on it. Anyhow, it’s fun to do something completely different.

Here’s to Summer

Posted May 6th, 2018

Here’s to summer evenings full of music and dance and play. And here’s to summer days full of creative energy. While most of us take on New Year’s resolutions, I’m going to make a summer resolution to immerse myself in the magic of all things creative. So, get ready summer!
