About The Southern Belle-Jar

Welcome to the Southern Belle-Jar, a digital salon for those politely coming unraveled at the petticoat seams. I, Nico Isaac, am your hostess with the Rorschach test, here to regale you with fascinating facts about calendar days and historical figures, as well as deeply inappropriate slash insightful personal essays, poetry, photography, and videos about all the hairy-toed biped stuff -- love, loss, the beauty of nature and sanctity/absurdity of life, magic, mystery, grief, the scarring traumas of online dating, and so on.

Think of the Southern Belle-Jar as A Prairie Home Companion meets Girl Interrupted with a splash of Pee Wee Herman's Playhouse!

My mission is simple: Go below the surface of what the world sees versus what's really growling underneath, and set the devilish voice inside the demure outside, free. This feat would not be possible without a few gazillion cameos by adorable cats who have cast me in their taxoplasmatic spell.

If you enjoy the content you read, see, watch here -- please spread the word, and the clotted cream to your nearest and dearest. Oh did I mention there will be puns.
