January 5, 2014 in Featured by Amy

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.

Three

May 3, 2013 in Featured, Philosophical Threads by Amy

When I posted earlier this week about ‘threes,’ I was only halfway serious. I was poking fun at myself and the seemingly unrelated string of odd events all in rapid succession. Maybe it is my way of standing up and roaring to the ether that I am still here, still

Things That Come in Threes

May 1, 2013 in Featured, Philosophical Threads by Amy

  I fell off a skateboard on Sunday. (Yeah, umm, okay… we could talk about why I was on a skateboard. Not a lot of damage, but still…) Then on Tuesday, I got rear-ended. (Not a lot of damage but still…) As I drove home from this morning’s pair of

[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

Photos Gone Wrong

Oh no! Yesterday was our middle school robotics group’s first competition. All the other schools at the event were high school level, so we went knowing that it was “for the experience” and, possibly, to open their eyes and to inspire them to what is possible in robot design. It
