American Gods Shrine

The winner of my Kickstarter giveaway requested a shrine be placed near House on the Rock, and I was in full agreement. I started scanning the countryside an hour away, and while I'd seen a few possibilities, I was a bit worried. Farms came right up to the road; finding a spot where it wouldn't... Continue Reading →

An Explanation for my Disappearance

I have disappeared on many of you. I promise, it's not because you had a baby. (Even though you're right, I don't really care for babies.) Or because you moved. Or because you have a new girlfriend/boyfriend/wife. I am broke. I just entered the final year of a massive debt repayment plan. Most of y'all are... Continue Reading →

Three months, in a nutshell.

Wow, January was really the last time I posted? I'm not totally surprised. Since then, I - moved, - had my car stolen, - recovered the car, - submitted 14 grant proposals, including a monster of a national gov't one, - drove to Tucson to visit family, - planned and implemented a girls weekend retreat...
