February has been a month of exhaustion and of dreams, my friends. I read a lot less in February.  I had wild sweeps between deep and complete exhaustions and bubbling bursts of energy and a deep desire to do something – anything!  I almost never harness that energy productively, but alas, here we are.  March is already a week deep and I feel myself yearning more and more for spring.  The sun rises a little earlier every day and stays out a little later.  The worst of the darkness is behind us, and I hope the worst of the snow […]

  The Love Curse of Melody McIntyre has all sorts of things that should make it a great read for me.  It’s a quick flowing contemporary, there’s loads of LGBTQIAP+ rep, and it’s a theatre book.  I love a good theatre book!  Unfortunately, sometimes you can have all the correct ingredients and still the book just isn’t a favorite.  And that’s okay!  Unfortunately, Melody missed the mark for me. Here’s some of the good stuff: I loved the division between cast and crew.  I know that’s not an ideal state, but my experiences in high school drama very much drew the line […]

I kid, of course, because we still have all the same things to work on as we did in 2020, all the same concerns and challenges and opportunities for growth.  But the psychology of hope is nice, right?  For myself, 2021 hasn’t been too bad on a personal level, and for that I’m truly grateful.  Still, there’s the continued opportunity to do […]

Hello everyone!  Good morning and HAPPY JANUARY 4TH 2021.  I know that 2021 isn’t going to solve all our problems.  Or any of it, actually, but the illusion of hope and change and new beginnings are always nice tings to hold on to – it gives us a little bit o strength to pick ourselves up and persevere. *deep breath* 2021 y’all. But not without one last wrap up, and then we can say adieu, right?  So lets do this. All the things I’ve been reading I allowed myself to have a fairly light reading month in December.  I read some […]
