Take A Beat + Event!

Sorry for going AWOL for a bit. My new job has been occupying a good deal of my energy along with a new guy that shows promise and revising Seer.

Another Faire-ly Successful Faire!

June 4th and 5th I road tripped it up to Charlotte, Michigan and the Eaton County Fairground for the Magical Realm Fantasy Faire.

Mother Nature Really Went ‘Hold My Beer’

Errant thoughts hold more power than we realize. A careless idea here or there can have very real world consequences. To what, you ask, am I referring? It’s a matter of snow.

Food For the Soul

Last Thursday I went to my first Post-Covid concert. Lindsey Stirling, a ballerina/violinist is one of my favorite musicians and as soon as I saw that she was coming to Michigan I knew I had to be there to see her live!

This past weekend I sold my book as a vendor at The Royal Stagg Renaissance Faire in Marshall, Michigan. At 6AM Gipsy Danger and I got in the car and drove roughly an hour and a half to mid-Michigan and began to unpack the car.
