Design and Projects

Sometimes I build and design things. I will share them here someday, I'm sure. For now, please visit one of these fine websites.

A Quote to Ponder

"It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for."

— Amy Poehler, "Yes Please"

What I'm Reading

Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

Select Quotes:

"And I supposed I was, in my mindless way, looking for something, a version of myself, a heroine I could slip inside as one might a pair of favorite old shoes. Or a silk blouse. For it was my best self I wanted, not the girl hunched in the evenings in her junk-shop chair over a cracked-spine paperback, but a fast young woman pulling open the passenger door of a sports car, leaning over to receive her lover's kiss, speeding toward a rural hideout."
"Just then, already tipsy, I thought I'd never seen a man more beautiful. I forgave him his tailored pirate's shirt. Love doesn't grow at a steady rate, but advances in surges, bolts, wild leaps, and this was one of those."
