I would like to write to you.
You know, like more than now. In this fashion.
It has been on my mind to start doing so via a private list for, well, probably since forever! Honestly, I had a lot of hang-ups about it. What the devil to talk about beyond what I share here, and why offer this alternative method anyway when so many of our inboxes are already so clogged with these sorts of things? I just didn’t want to add to the noise.
Remember the days of You’ve Got Mail..? Oh, the sweet sound of dial-up!

It’s not that I didn’t get the reason why I should have a list. I did. I do.
It was rather my own experiences of signing up to these things that really made me question what I would be adding to the encounter. Sometimes having a deeply strong sense of integrity can really work against you, you know?
I am sure that much like me, you do not want yet another pdf or ebook that will sit in your digital archive, another community that you do not have time for, another resource library that you have to remember to revisit on the off-chance there is an update, or even (what is becoming the trend now) an email series that requires your repeated focus.
These are all time-consuming activities, that while interesting and potentially helpful, more often than not detract from The Work through shear overwhelm of too. much. information.
So what does that mean for my own list?
All this to say, for these reasons I have chosen to start out small and (relatively) low key. No frills, no glitz. Just me sharing my thoughts once a month about what’s going on behind the screen – in my life, my enterprise, my process: the back story to living a creative, renaissance soulful life.
In doing so it is my hope that in telling my story, you see a mirror to your own.
To support and compliment the stories, there will be reflections and insights from my favourite cartomancy tools and a small curated selection of my favourite findings from across the realms of creativity, spirituality and mental health for your contemplation that month.
In time these New Moon Missives may expand to new things and new offers, but for now I simply invite you to join me for some extended commentary on building a creative life.
The first of these will go out this coming new moon, February 26th.
I hope to meet you there.
