Name:a chance of humming
Website:home journal
This blog is an experiment in creativity and expression.

Other people try to write every day; that's not something that fits me well. Instead, expect a wide variety of art, crafts, writing, science, pictures of what I'm cooking, or whatever I feel like. I post several times a month, but sometimes more frequently.

If you see food you'd like a recipe for, feel free to ask. I won't always have one, but if I do, I'll share it.

Words don't come easily to me, so this is a place where other forms of communication are permitted to stand on their own. Responses are welcome, whatever form they take (I'd love to have a discussion in pictures, or music, or whatever), but I reserve the right to take my time replying.

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

--Mary Oliver, "Wild Geese"
