Now

This is a now page, and if you have your own website, you should make one, too.

Well, so much for turning the symbolic calendar page on 2020. In the first two weeks of 2021, there was an insurrection at the US Capitol, increasing COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths, and closer to home an officer-involved deadly shooting.

We haven’t even made it to the inauguration. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Now writing

I have three short stories in progress:

Now reading

I review books I’ve finished on my Reading page.

Now playing

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is as darling and relaxing as I had hoped it would be.

Now knitting

After diagnosing and fixing my wonky knitting technique in a Zoom private lesson with a professional from Twisted Yarn Shop, I’m back on the yarn! I just finished my first project in years, a basic 1x1 ribbed knit scarf in bright pumpkin orange, a little bit of sunshine for these dark days.

Now listening

For the past three months I’ve been into experimental, downtempo, trip-hop, country including: Dirty Projectors, Tosca, Halou, Taylor Swift, Leslie Bricusse, Mariah Carey, Abigail Barlow, Basinettes and Damien Rice.

Now inking

Here are the inks in my EDC fountain pens.

For more pen and ink recommendations, see my Analog page.

Now recommending

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
