New job!

Hello, all! I’m quite excited to announce that over the last few weeks, my previous internship transitioned into a full-time position at Dream Local Digital! I was able to meet the whole crew on February 11, 12, and 13th during a great “Dream Team” Summit last week. It was refreshing to be in a room full of people that not…

The Hangman

I’ve been writing a bit today, and in some of my research for a character, I found some interesting works, including this by Maurice Ogden. It’s an excellent piece, and I think all too often we miss these days what Ogden was pointing out we missed in the old days… We never look close enough at what’s going on around…

Writing Today

It feels good to start the new year off writing, that’s for sure. I didn’t think that I would be able to jump back in so quickly, but it’s always that initial hour push that gets me going. I’m glad I started working on A’s story again. He needs to be written; his story is screaming at me from the…

Early Moosemas

Yes, we call it Moosemas. Because of the Great White Moose… Whom I shall tell you more about some day after I’ve drawn a good example of him. In any case, I am completely spoiled. Not only did N decide to procure us the most wonderful portable little turntable, he managed to get one that has all 3 speeds, digital…

My Take on Question 1

As the ever impending election approaches, I have been extremely loathe to say anything in public about it other than, “I’m washing my hands of this crap.” and even then, it’s still important to me and I’m still struggling with the idea of voting on Tuesday. That said, I do want to say what I think of Question 1, and…

Sea Woman

By Corissa Haury She combs her hair on craggy rocks, And climbs the cliffs, now bare of feet, The wind plays in her shining locks, Tides crash on shores, her soul to meet; Her heart sings now the ocean’s song, Its anthem churning, burning deep, Inside her heart where it belongs, The heart the ocean now shall keep; And who…

To The Sea

By Corissa Haury to the sea to the sea to the sea, i turn the waves shall endless churn, and i shall forever burn as my soul engraves itself upon the earth, as my heart splits itself in twain to fit the conflict of maturity twisting inside itself, cracking at its very head in order to contain all the thought…

New Website!

With the dawn of Minerva Web and other opportunities that have recently arisen, I have decided to revamp this website and make it a little sharper and more professional. I’m currently in the process of completing it, but please feel free to look around and peek into the various projects I’ve been working on. Some of my work is older,…

summer months

I guess it’s kind of been a while. Lots of stuff happened. I’m taking a business class and might attempt to start a small website business in the fall. Pretty fun. I’m also a substitute librarian at the main library here in Portland. I’m super excited about this one. It’s torture and wonder to work in a place so full…

Memories & The Universe

It’s Sunday morning. I’ve cleaned my apartment and it is stunning. The dishes are washed, the tea-set is laid out, the cat is content on the couch. The wood floors shine in the morning light. The warm sunlight comes every once in a while, flickering between the clouds in the sky. Birds of all kinds can be heard outside, and…
