Changes of Directions
I haven't posted in a while. This is because another series of changes of directions is brewing in my life. I use the plural, because I tend to have so many interests and directions at once.
The latest is that I have published a collection of recipes by my Great Grandmother Emma Patterson on Smashwords. These came from six handwritten notebooks, which I've been transcribing and editing for some time now.
Also, I've been hard at work on arts and crafts and collecting lovely vintage things. My shop on Etsy.
The experience of trying to save the world, or even a very small, fragile, and beautiful part of it, has been so excruciating and frankly disastrous for the past few years that, while I continue to care about various causes, I will now be adjusting the balance of my life more toward enlightened self-interest. I think this is a good thing, and it's one I'm excited about!
