Tuesday Interlude


I love this ethereal video made by Sarah Wickliffe (http://www.wickpix.com/)…with a poetic appearance by Neruda. Followed it up with a Cure chaser. Because, you know, the Cure.


Until we meet in other worlds, traveller.




The Voyage Begins…

Willow Croft

“Quantum Singularity is a voyage through time and space. This poetic journey crosses oceans, traverses other realms, gets lost in the past, and disappears into the future. Choose the right path; the path that leads to the corner of Cosmos and Infinity, and the way will never be lost.”

You are welcome to join me on my voyage through time and space.

I’ll be planning some visits to the Goodreads realm, as soon as my author page is up.

Hope you enjoy the magic!

The Real-Life Westeros Wolves…


“A man might befriend a wolf, even break a wolf, but no man could truly tame a wolf.”― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

(A Chaos Fairy translation: Wolves aren’t pets.)

So, visiting this place is definitely on my bucket list, now that I live in New Mexico.

Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary

I think it would be worth a road trip (or a plane/boat/Tardis trip!), don’t you?

The Westeros Pack

If you can’t visit, you can always support them from afar.




Alchemy of Chess…

“A Few Hours After This” –The Cure

A little while ago, I wrote an article for Renaissance Magazine on Human Chess Matches. (It’s a great magazine, btw! 🙂  )

Chess has been on my mind lately, metaphorically, in relation to certain things going on in my little chaotic world.

As a result, I decided to include some links for human chess match events around the world for my Travel Tuesday blog!

(What’s a human chess match?)

In Marostica, Italy–September 2016: http://www.wheremilan.com/events/human-chess-game-marostica-september-2016/

It might be part of the Hue Festival in Hue City, Vietnam (I tried to find the event for the next festival, but no luck. Still looks awesome, anyway!): https://www.flickr.com/photos/laresidencehue/26329563512

The Metrocon Anime Convention does a chess match every year–it’s awesome!: http://www.metroconventions.com/control.cfm?ID=4041

Six Elements Theatre’s Human Chess Match: http://www.sixelementscompany.org/news/

That’s it for now…the outside world is beckoning…


3, 2, 1…Blastoff!

We’re off to Jupiter! Or Juno has arrived there, anyway.

Yep, I’m using my Travel Tuesday blog to geek out about space! I especially love Jupiter!

Jupiter Crash by the Cure

Here’s some links about Juno’s arrival at Jupiter (to Jupiter?), in case you missed it in the news:









If Trump becomes President of the US…

If you’re living or staying in the US, and you have no money (like me), well, we’re pretty much screwed. *wry laugh*

But, if you have scads of cash (i.e. the 1%), check out some of these places that are (jokingly?) welcoming refugees from the United States.

Some other random articles–Bon Voyage!:






Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return

So, I was lucky enough to have someone treat me to a trip to Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return. It’s an incredible exploratory and interactive experience.

Words can barely describe the feeling that you get when you are there.

You never want to leave…it’s a dream that you had when you were a kid but forgot about until now.

It’s every fantasy book you’ve ever read, come to life.

Alice in Wonderland.

Charles de Lint’s The Onion Girl.

The Victorian/Baroque feel of a Victoria Holt novel.

The Gormenghast Trilogy.

I could go on, but I’d rather you get lost in the House of Eternal Return, instead.

Just go. Get on a plane. Take a train. Take a portal. Cross galaxies. Whatever you have to do to experience it.
