This is what it looks like when I take on too much
So, I haven't been over here at Patreon for a couple of weeks, and I feel really bad about that. 

The picture above is my studio/office/indoor temple, and -- as within, so without -- my mind and focus are in a similar state. I have realised over the past couple of days that I have taken on WAY too much for the coming year, this autumn in particular, and I need to pare back. 

(The irony of the fact that I am not long back from a Witchcamp at which I was co-teaching about the relationship between creativity and self-care is not lost on me.) 

What does that mean? I'm not sure yet. I still need -- NEED -- to create, plus I find talking to you who read these ramblings to be calming and therapeutic. And there are some things I'm not willing to stop doing, fighting white supremacy in every way I can prime among them. (Which is what most of my attention has been taken up with recently.) 

So you may find me talking here about racism, gender constructs, and the like more often. Or not. It's all part of the mix, so it'll show itself, one way or another. 

But for now, I just want to say thank you for your support, whether that is as a patron, or simply reading and sharing my words, here and on Facebook. 

I love you. I hope you know that.
