it's been a while, say 2 years, since i've blogged regularly. in fact, I've convinced myself that I can't even write anymore. It's not so much that I can't write, it's that I'm out of practice of carving out the time to do so. This past year, I've become a mother of a busy, curious, happy child of 16 mon ths. Between housework, my part time job as a research assistant, cooking, caring for Mazzy 24/7, joining a local church community (Imago Dei Eastside), staying active in the underground comics and zine communities, trying to garden daily, and maybe even exercise, I'm pretty pooped by the end of the day. If i'm lucky I can grab a cup of tea, and step outside for a minute to enjoy the cool late night air, and maybe watch a stupid movie and read some. Writing for me is on the back burner right now, but lately I've been missing expressing my thoughts to the "world."
This week is Ash Wednesday, and in the past I've dedicated to giving up something for the season of Lent. This year I would like to add to my life, instead of taking away. I would like to write a paragraph everyday, for 40 days, on my thoughts about faith, race, home, and creativity.
I would also like to start compiling a new zine about the history of API zinesters.
As well as continue my watercolor paintings of my old family photos.
