The Soft Launch of Storybuilding & Under/Over/On
Posted July 30th, 2014 @ 3:55 pm EST

As many of you know, I've been at work on an online presence for my privately taught creative writing classes. I've named the overarching company Storybuilding, and I've created its parent website. It's in beta! I'd love for you to take a look at it: www....   »

Could there be a Pre-Raphaelite Pop Culture Renaissance Afoot?
Posted February 20th, 2012 @ 6:26 pm EST

Dinah Roe, author of The Rossetti's in Wonderland, suggests the "proliferation of articles on the Pre-Raphaelites is an indication of the growing excitement around the 2012 Tate Britain Exhibition, but whatever the reason, its hard not to notice the sudde...   »

Rossetti as Obsessive Collector
Posted July 10th, 2011 @ 9:10 pm EST

In The Observer's review of Jacqueline Yallop's Magpies, Squirrels and Thieves: How the Victorians Collected the World, I was delighted that the writer highlighted Rossetti's compulsive hoarding tendencies for bric-a-brac as well as for exotic menagerie a...   »

New Wallpaper for this Blog
Posted June 1st, 2011 @ 2:51 pm EST

If 6/1 is the new 1/1, I'm revamping my landing page. During my rainy mid-year eval, I heretofore resolve to bump up my poorly-updated blog to a regularly-refreshed one. Low expectations are key to blogging - the quick turnover rate does not come naturall...   »

Obsessed: Bruce Chatwin
Posted January 7th, 2010 @ 6:54 pm EST

An essay I recently wrote on Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia:  Bruce Chatwin's idee fixe on literature (Shakespeare, Coleridge, and Poe) may form the backbone of In Patagonia, but the author's all-encompassing obsession li...   »

A Work In Progress: A Burlesque Teaser
Posted November 26th, 2009 @ 6:36 pm EST

I'm sorry I've been slow on the blogging front. After months of interviews, and months of watching pasties fly in all directions, I'm now behind my desk making it come alive again on the page. I've been working on a longform profile of a burlesque dancer....   »

Viva Burlesque
Posted October 3rd, 2009 @ 9:45 pm EST

I'm in the process of profiling one of these women for the next two months. Work has levity again. The interviewing process is lively, intellectual, and like burlesque, "funnysexy-sexyfunny."...   »

Obsessed: Blue Glass
Posted July 15th, 2009 @ 4:47 pm EST

Not much to say here. I keep buying these arguable ugly objects. In assuming the role of "picker" (or garage sale scavenger) weekend after weekend, I'll bee-line across a lawn for a blue vase and then stare at it through the sun, feeling like an autistic...   »

Fare Il Limoncello
Posted June 10th, 2009 @ 2:25 pm EST

In honor of a friend's 26th, we mixed a double batch of limoncello over the weekend. When the bartender at Stella's overheard us discussing what kind of lemons to use, she unraveled the towel swinging from her hip to show us her parents' favorite Sicilian...   »

How I Imagine Myself
Posted June 1st, 2009 @ 12:20 pm EST

Minus the blonde hair. Slash the heels. Replace the dress with cutoffs. Add a slouch to her posture. I love this image. Isn't it funny how we identify ourselves in pictures that really have nothing to do with ourselves? I don't own a typewriter (I want on...   »

Obsessed: Beets
Posted May 16th, 2009 @ 6:33 pm EST

At the Norwich Farmers Market, I bought a jar of pickled beets for $5. Astounding, yes. Overpriced, I think so. The best I've tasted, absolutely. In that giddy fit that overcomes me when I see food! from farmers! outdoors! with the sun is shining! my budg...   »
