Whoops I recorded this rainy Ramble three weeks ago and then NEVER POSTED IT. Here it is for posterity, even though I am now in Ojai and everything is sunny and thankfully the flu is a distant memory.


  • Illness! Malaise! Overcoming ten days of inactivity and bodily misery!
  • My word for this year! YIELD. Considering how to slow down and also produce things
  • Trying to move towards getting dopamine from completing aimless drawing studies
  • How to motivate yourself when your tiny rat brain doesn’t have to frantically scrabble for money???
  • The healing value of reading imperfect books when you are constantly berating yourself for not being able to produce a perfect book

Dear new Patrons: WELCOME! Hello. I record these little audio journals every couple weeks as a more humane way of telling you what's been going on in my creative brain. This one is somewhat out of date, but usually they go up around the same day they're recorded. You can find the rest under the #Ramble tag here on Patreon. I am SO GLAD you are here <3
