ink-splotch:

Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed it, nonnie. 

No, I don’t tend to write short fiction. I do write novels though. I have two completed right now and sequels for each of them in the works. If you’d like to read either, I’ve linked to them below. 

Sneak is book one of the Alliance trilogy, which tells the story of five young adults coming of age on different sides of a brimming civil conflict. 

Beanstalk: the Adventures of a Jack of All Tales is the first book of my Leagues and Legends series. Jack, a bright young backwoodsman, attends a school for adventurers and falls into both friendships and dangers. 

If you liked my Susan Pevensie, you might enjoy my Laney Jones, so I would recommend starting with Beanstalk

^These books. You should read them. Especially Beanstalk.

Ed Stockham is an animator. His stuff in whimsical. I especially like this video he made for an empathy project.

Mary Ellen Croteau made this self portrait from bottle caps. Bottle cannot be recycled. I think it’s quite beautiful. Mind blowing.

These swings are fantastic. Although, in my experience, once swings are that long, it’s difficult to get any height without someone pushing you, I still think that they’re great, and wish that I was in NYC so I could see them. I love swings. I think I’m a sculptor for the sole purpose of creating and experiencing adult-sized playground equipment.

Giuseppe Penone uses many natural elements in his art. In this piece, he hollowed out a large tree to reveal the young tree it had once been.

This lovely bridge was created by RO&AD. Based in the Netherlands, they specialize in creative, sustainable architecture.
I must admit that whenever I see the word “Netherlands,” I instantly think of “Neverland.” Very rarely does this seem appropriate. But, in the case of sunken bridges where one can walk down though water, or hold one’s hand out to touch it, well, this is the magic that Neverland is made of, so, the brain jump seems apt.
