Whatever bubbles bubbles up. (I feel.)

When I was trying to write short stories, every single one of them took place during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. This week holds potential. Can you feel it? (You can. You might not recognize that feeling, but it’s there.)

What have I been up to, (I pretend) you just asked?
Let’s see.
Here’s the fun stuff:

I did this for about three minutes because a friend dared me.

Then I did this, and I always hate photos of myself, but I sort of like this photo because I’m digging being bald and EVERYONE looks good in black and white. (Sometimes I wish I could leave the house in black and white. Oh, wishes…)

I’ve been knitting.
This will eventually be a scarf that will triple (or quadruple or more) around my neck. Until it becomes a scarf, it will be half a pair of (crotchless, I guess) sexy wool pants!

This shawl is part of the Cast Off 2020 kit from Three Irish Girls, my favorite yarn dyer. Every day from December 17th until December 30, I’ll be opening a tiny package that contains a tiny skein of yarn that was dyed to honor someone who died during 2020. So far, this shawl shows (from bottom to top, if you’re curious) Jerry Stiller, Alex Trebek, John Lewis, Sean Connery, Kenny Rogers, and Eddie Van Halen.

Also, I knit a hat, and it makes me feel like a little magic might happen.

I hope you’ve been well. A lot of people I know have experienced some truly shitty things over the past month, and sometimes everything bubbles up and explodes and life feels sort of dismal. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.

  1. AWESOME! For whatever reason, maybe the set of your lips (?) that (black & white) photo of you brings to mind a young Ruth Bader Ginsberg. What a way to go into the New Year as a new (looking) you!


  2. The only thing I need from you is for you to keep being you and putting your thoughtful, kind energy out into the world. Actually: if you’d be interested in a delivery of seriously amazing local peanuts, please message me.

  3. 1. You look AMAZING! Love the (lack of) hair.
    2. I like the scarf as leggings. It looks good on you.
    3. The shawl is just perfect. In every way.
    4. That hat is definitely magical.
    5. I love this declaration of intent for 2021. I can’t do the same (although I would like to) because I’m not feeling any of those things right now and it would just make me sad.

    Hope your 2021 is wonderful!
