I have less than zero time to do this post, but in the spirit of fully utilizing this potent month, here is a link to my Hevria post today, part of Elul’s theme of Love & Fear. Hevria is extending this theme to everyone and anyone who feels like participating, and you can share your… Continue reading It’s Elul!
It has been so busy! And continues to be busy! But because my drive to procrastinate Yom Tov prep is so strong, I wanted to take a quick minute to let you all know about a few exciting/interesting things I’ve found/was involved with this month. And then we can move right into Yom Tov and then… Continue reading Of Interest – May 2017
I was thinking about naming this piece “Inside the Mind of This Particular Creative Person,” but with SEO and all that I figured I’d go with the more generic title. That’s one little peek inside my creative process. Over at Hevria this week, I took a long, long look at all the things that go… Continue reading Inside the Mind of A Creative Person
A lot of my writing lately has been focused on things that I find difficult, or that I have struggled with. I think it’s important to explore these topics, but when it’s gotten to the point where writing about how much I appreciate Shabbos feels subversive, I realize that I need to think about balance!… Continue reading Shabbos and Creativity

I saw this graphic on Facebook today: I love this. I wholeheartedly agree with it. And I need to remind myself about it all the time. About a month ago, maybe more, my husband and I were discussing how I never practiced anymore. This is a problem because we both feel that if Hashem gives… Continue reading Should You Make Art?
Some women are eternally stylish, effortlessly fashionable, always chic no matter the setting. I have never really been one of those women. I was the girl in high school who found her prom dresses at the thrift store, and rocked caution tape for a sash at Winter Formal. I have never really understood the mystery that is… Continue reading That Time I Thought I Could Be a Fashionista
Sometimes it feels like everything on the internet flies by so quickly that even really interesting things get buried in the rush to post post post. In the hopes of at least remembering some of the interesting things that are going on around the web, here’s a post with some notable links, things that you… Continue reading Of Interest
In my mental description of my creative self, I identify as a musician, not a writer. Despite all the writing I’ve done over the years that moniker never really feels authentic. And why not? Because I don’t have a degree in writing? Because my work has only been published online? Where’s the line I need to cross… Continue reading Nine Questions About Writing
It has been ages and ages since I last wrote about music (here’s the most recent post). Thanks to Sarah’s comment on the blog’s Facebook page sharing that she liked my posts with musical clips, and hoped I would do more, I’m doing more! This one’s for you, Sarah. I’ve also been greatly enjoying Sarah Zadok’s… Continue reading Music for Fall Days
