To Fall in Love, Do This

The 36 Questions That Lead to Love. 
In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd link to the most popular Modern Love essay ever in the NY Times: "To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This."


Happy Valentine's Day!

Did you know that many museums (The Met, MOMA, The National Gallery, The Rijksmuseum) make their images free online for anyone to download and use, for anything they choose? 
In honor of Valentine's Day, here's a photograph by Henry Peach Robinson titled "She Never Told her Love." It's his illustration of the Shakespearean verse from Twelfth Night: "She never told her love,/ But let concealment, like a worm i' the bud,/ Feed on her damask cheek"

All I can say is, if you love someone, *Tell Them*!

Hope you have a Happy Valentine's Day!️️

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

Making this little seconds-long video was harder than you'd think! My son and I had to try several times to get it just right. 😊
Here's my message to all of us for a Happy New Year:
Dear Past, thanks for all the experience.
Dear Future, you're a blank page and I'm determined to write a better story every year.
Cheers to you and yours for a great 2017! ❤️

Great quote for a winter day.

A great quote for a cold day. 
And a good day to be inside, writing!
