about this amelia and this blog

this little blog here is place for little snippets of writing about my scholarly thinking, various books and art and crafts and other-people's-writing and anything else that catches my interest. I've been doing this off and on for more than a decade now, and I very much like tying my thoughts into wordbundles here. if it sounds pretentious and pointless to you, maybe you're right. I hope it's okay anyway.

my main goals in life involve asking more than enough questions and being open to as many possibilities as possible. at the same time, I try to remember to be where I am right now, and live in the moment. imagining things is fun, but working to revel in awareness, to feel connected and interwoven with here and now might be more more useful than seeing the future. harder, though.

here, in case you're curious, is a bit of explanation on the blog's first title: fear, anger, and doubt.

and once you've got that, a few other posts concerning the exigence (or lack thereof) behind this little corner of the internet: the very first postresurrectionwho am I talking to?look againhalf a dozenamelioration, and usable pasts.

every Sunday I used to post one of the sketches I'd drawn in church. I should do weekly art posts again. someday. in the meantime, there is my instagram.

also: I do freelance editing, proofreading, and design work and I love it. let me know if you need a wedding announcement or a business card. if you are writing or have written anything at all, imagine me begging you to let me proof it. $3/page is my going rate for that, but we can negotiate for chocolate or ice cream if we need to.
