Hello from 2018. I hope you’re doing well. Regularly scheduled posts will return on Wednesday, but for now I wanted to check in and wish you a great new year. In 2017 I brushed the dust off this blog and started writing mostly about tarot. I started blogging (outside of Livejournal, anyway), back in 2006 or 2007. I started writing about anime, took a detour through literary theory, settled on literature for a while, and now I finally gave myself permission to write about whatever the hell. If you joined me this year, welcome! I hope to keep writing through this year, and helping people to, well, live better through symbolism.
