The Enneagram can be used for personality typing — and movie characters are so fun to investigate! — or as a system for storytelling, especially for screenwriting. I like understanding how to write better, or at least understand why that movie didn’t quite satisfy.

Encaustic, painting with warm wax, is a beautiful, traditional art form. I often use organic material — mostly dried flowers — to create small pieces that may or may not last. It’s all an experiment.

Why subscribe? I post the same content at my website, , where I have ordered categories and a history of work. I guess a subscription here says, “You like me, you really like me.” Although I engage in the introvert dance of look-at-me-don’t-look-at-me, I do appreciate the recognition.
