a month of quartz episodes

Episode Eleven of Quartz (in which Rafe has his first--and only--firedancing performance) went out to Inboxes and RSS feed readers all over the world today. This marks the end of the first month of running the serial (-ish, I'm too lazy to look up the exact date I started). So, how's it [read more] about a month of quartz episodes

I discovered this while I was going through some old files. David got into Prezi, and it looked so lovely and non-linear I had to try my hand at one, too. Here's the one I made for Quartz (sadly enough, my books are the only thing I'm qualified to make presentations about) more than a year ago. This [read more] about prezi!

o christmas tree

I love it when we get our Christmas tree. Because we don't want to overdose on Christmas *before* December 25th, we wait until the second weekend of the month to get it. I love its spicy green scent. I love the way the ornaments glint and glitter among the branches. I love sitting in the rocking [read more] about o christmas tree
