Last night I dreamt of a dilapidated stone ruin where, if we jumped from cairn to cairn in the correct pattern, a secret door in the ground opened up and permitted us to enter an underground crystal cavern full of friendly cats.

That interview was just what I needed to settle my sad, jittery brain on a dark, damp Pacific Northwest morning. Things we need more of in this world: personal accounts from women whose creative life was complicated, beset by interruptions from the day-to-day, full of belated discoveries, a lifetime journey.

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) Indeed! There's some great images floating around of costume ideas from the 1920s/1930s where the costume theme is "Hallowe'en"; lots lof lovely, orange-and-black, harlequin-and-pom-pom ideas:

Also: Is it too early to talk Hallowe'en? I am SO excited for the arrival of October. Did a laundry today and rearranged my closet so that only black, orange and yellow clothing appears at first look! Also, I got a job offer to bartend a Hallowe'en wedding reception! It's an early evening gig, with a 1920s costume theme, and I'm super stoked to make some dollars, have an excuse for a great costume and still get to go out afterward. Anyone else dancing with glee to get just a wee bit creep-tastic for the next four weeks??

@adorable-eggplant I will join you in singing the sweet, sweet praises of the slowcooker. I always doff mine under the sink for the summer months, and temporarily imagine myself the kind of person who will just eat crudités and gazpachos and pita chip for all time; but, come September, will slink back and *beg* its forgiveness with lashings of oxtail and bay leaf.
