    Music & Crafts

    Music & Crafts

    As I begin fiddle lessons (!), I see so many connections between my desire to learn folk music and my fascination with handcrafts.

    I Had 7 Minutes

    I Had 7 Minutes

    I had seven minutes of relative quiet for recording, and I tried to make the most of it. Featuring: me, playing the violin, very badly. (And some crochet for challenging times.)

    Serenade & Feminist Rage

    Serenade & Feminist Rage

    Wherein I learn to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele for a tuba duet and rekindle my commitment to dismantle the patriarchy.

    Really, there are no show notes other than that. You... are gonna want to hear this one.

    Tiny Creative Joys

    Tiny Creative Joys

    We're gonna be in this for a long while, dear listeners. We'll be experiencing waves of grief over a long time. So it's time to focus on tiny joys, and on how our creativity can help us create some of those joys for ourselves.

    Time Is Warped

    Time Is Warped

    Time is so weird right now. It's movings so slowly, and so distantly, so fluidly. There are no good words for it, really, but I think we can all agree we're living in a Twilight Zone.
    In “normal” life, I talk with folks a lot about finding and making time for creativity and creative projects in our daily lives.
    But when time is all screwed up, and when we may feel inclined to think we have way more of it on our hands than we actually do, does the challenge of fitting in creative projects go away?
    It sure doesn't.
    Have a listen for some more on this, and for some ideas for fitting creativity into your quarantine time. (Hint: I'll be doing the 100 Day Project. Maybe you, too?)

    Dispatch from Quarantine

    Dispatch from Quarantine

    We're nine days into self-quarantine because the last person we saw before going into self-isolation last Monday called a few days later to tell us he'd been exposed. In many ways, this isn't any different an experience than what we'd been expecting, except we can't go shopping for groceries and the like. Which, at this point, actually seems like a massive difference. My kingdom for a change of scenery beyond what we get walking the dog.
    I'm keeping the podcast going outside of my initial plan to release an eight-episode first season. I don't yet have a predictable schedule to work with for recording and editing, and my brain is half mush these days. So at the very least, what I'll send into your ears is what we have today: some musings on quarantine and updates on how I and our community are working to keep creative folks connected and making stuff, and maybe a bit of birdsong I recorded in the woods by my house a few days ago. It's a sound that brings peace to me, and maybe to you, too.
