The air is so clean this morning. As I write this, it refuses to blow through the open windows of my apartment and I am dreading my eight hours inside the retail store where I work. I love my job, but I also miss early September mornings: the smell of things ending and new beginnings…… Continue reading September Mornings – Journal Post
The temperature dropped by four degrees last night. Fall is coming. Fall Is Coming. FALL IS COMING. That can only mean one thing: SPOOKTOBER. On my old blog website; every October, we took the time to write a short story (or draw a comic or draw a picture) every day.

I buy new clothes every now and then,…… Continue reading Self-Care (The Meditations)
I have wanted a Harry Potter-esqe wand since I first read The Sorcerer’s Stone in 2003. Actually, I made one of my own (modeled after Hermione’s as well as an 11-year-old craftsperson with zero art skill can) a few years later. When I was 12, my father made me a Time Turner. These, unfortunately, have been lost…… Continue reading Tina Goldstein Wand: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
