Every Day in May

May 8, 2013 in Creative Journey, Featured, Graphic Novel, Pen and Ink, Philosophical Threads by Amy

Trying something different in May, a spin on daily concepts we have talked about many times. I am curious to see how the month will take shape and am hoping this will rekindle something approximating the kind of “daily” that was, for a while, such a big part of me.

Keeping it Straight

March 30, 2013 in Creative Journey, Featured, Quilting by Amy

While I was working in the kitchen the other night, I needed paper towels. Maximizing my efforts, I bundled up a bag of trash and headed down to the garage. When I came back up, ready to resume dinner-making, I realized I had forgotten the paper towels. I gathered up

The Spaces Between.

March 13, 2013 in Creative Journey, Featured, Quilting by Amy

[A few days separate then and now.] The things we do. Last night I did something that we hope we never have to so, but something that many times I have thought necessary and, even so, a step I have never taken. Until last night. I called 911 for an

January Passing

January 28, 2013 in Comics, Creative Journey, Featured, Philosophical Threads by Amy

It is January 28. Just a few more days in the month are ticking away. As the first month of the year passes, there are several things I am hoping to complete, manage, share that will help get me firmly started on this year in terms of the notes I

Morning

January 19, 2013 in Creative Journey, Featured, Philosophical Threads, Quilting by Amy

A pointless photo, but after making my second full cup, I was thinking about a meeting I had this week. I typically manage to keep a low meeting profile, but before our once-a-month in person staff meeting this week, I agreed to a pre-meeting with a young scientist to talk

Sparking and Spotting

January 16, 2013 in Books, Creative Journey, Graphic Novel, Lists, Pen and Ink, Philosophical Threads by Amy

I have been wanting to try this list widget… to see if it will help me move things from here to there… from the void to the blog. There used to be segments in the podcast (way back in the beginning) that were random assortments… maybe not quite this random

A Start

January 15, 2013 in Creative Journey, Featured, Mokeskine, Pen and Ink, Philosophical Threads by Amy

No Fear of the Blank Page Here. This was a bit ago… after we spotted a Townsend’s Warbler (yellow and black with mask!) for the first time in a bush across from the house as we were going to the park to make a “first” YouTube video about folding paper

Decadent. Derailed. Determined.

January 9, 2013 in Creative Journey, Diabetes, Featured, Philosophical Threads, Quilting by Amy

Decadent. I bought two things in the last few months that were decadent (for me). Both are indulgences that I had wanted but put off, money being tight for most of the last few years and such purchases seeming, to me, unnecessary even if desired. The story of my first

Creative Wish Lists

November 21, 2012 in Books, Creative Journey, Mapping, Philosophical Threads by Amy

Thinking as the Precursor to Doing. I seem to be becoming a master of wasting time. The November-December days of “list-building,” coupled with the allure of the vapor-thin chance that something on someone’s list will show up in one of the changes-every-hour-over-the-next-seven-days sales at Amazon, make it all too possible

Steamroller Saturday.

September 23, 2012 in Creative Journey, Featured, Philosophical Threads by Amy

Steamroller Saturday. (Note: I forgot my camera. These are all basic cell phone pics, for the record of it… not the photography.) After a long and fruitless soccer game on a turf field in the middle of the city, fenced in with a tall chainlink fence, bordered by a giant

A Look Back

September 17, 2012 in Creative Journey, Featured, Philosophical Threads, Quilting by Amy

“40″ (A year quilt.) A Look Back. That’s how the interview with Tammy feels… like a look back through a long and winding forest road. I probably should have just drawn a regular pie-chart at the end. I hope some of you have a chance to read the interview —
