That's me on the right, coaxed into a playhouse by my niece Maggie. Two observations: 1) Little kid playhouses are SMALL…yet surprisingly cozy. 2) Crawling in is way easier than crawling out.   Interpret as you will.

Sometimes other people say what I want to say better:

 

For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.
-Aristotle

If you're any good at all, you know you can be better.
- Lindsay Buckingham

The practice of art isn't to make a living, it's to make your soul grow.
- Kurt Vonnegut

 

This writing project is an attempt to do all three: learn by doing, get better at it, and make my soul grow.  

Thank you kindly for visiting/reading. Email me if you'd like to be in touch: tine.sdc@gmail.com

Now log off the internet for a little bit and go make your soul grow.
