Brushfire: Coming 2021

November 14th, 2020 Even though I’m exhausted and anxious and just not having the best year, I am also excited and pleased to announce my next project, my first all-ages graphic novel — Brushfire. This story has been a long, long time coming. It started when I was a kid. I loved a lot ofContinue reading “Brushfire: Coming 2021”

Do You (Still) Believe in Magic?

November 2nd, 2020 I chose the wrong time to peek behind the curtain. This year has been one of intense loss for many. I have to keep my face forward, because as soon as I turn my chin to look back at my own losses, it feels impossible to steer it toward the future again.Continue reading “Do You (Still) Believe in Magic?”


September 14th, 2020 Our universe is full of systems that help us in the suffering of being human, and only a fool would discount a single one. I’ve mentioned before a series of lectures I’ve been reading, and it’ll be the basis for a lot of the stuff I’ll be writing about. It’s called TheContinue reading “Lovefool”

The Social Dilemma

September 12th, 2020 Shall we unironically discuss The Social Dilemma on social media? We shall! Let’s get this out of the way: if you’re a human and use any social media platform, this is essential viewing. It’s only 90 minutes long, and it contains information that should be shared with every human for the sakeContinue reading “The Social Dilemma”

It’s Evolving!

September 7th, 2020 If you want to hear something hopeful about humanity, I want you to take a little trip with me. I’m reading a book of lectures from 1902, and in a lecture I read tonight, it was explained to me that it took people a long time to get from “Someone should doContinue reading “It’s Evolving!”

The Weight of the World

May 21st, 2020 Imagine an enormous boulder on your bathroom scale. If you snuck underneath it, you could see its weight. If a single raindrop fell from the sky, and landed on the boulder, it would not change its displayed weight at all. This is how I imagine most people feel they affect the world.Continue reading “The Weight of the World”

The [Hidden] Real World

May 20th, 2020 I’ve spent weeks with this book, exploring the most vast multiverses, and the tiniest quantum worlds. I just finished it. And now I know everything. I’m *kidding*. But I am really proud of myself for reading an entire book about math and physics of every major kind. This is adult-level book-reading goalsContinue reading “The [Hidden] Real World”

It’s Science

May 14th, 2020 I’ve been really into science lately. Deep. I’m reading books about the universe (or universes?). I’ve learned so much about physics. General relativity, and quantum field theory, and string theory, and I’m finding a stunning symmetry to people. When we encounter a force we don’t understand, we have to figure out anContinue reading “It’s Science”
