Yesterday's poem in its original Spanish, by 17th century writer Sor Juana InΓ©z de la Cruz. The English translation in my previous post is from a novel by Isabel Allende I am currently reading. πŸ“–

Sometimes I try to challenge myself by writing something in a different language for fun. Last year I used a big block of text from a Wikipedia entry about mushrooms in French.

Haven't actually written a letter in a while - Nina/@anintran's post reminded me! So I wrote one today. I have to remind myself to slowwww downnnn because my thoughts always go faster than my hand and I start to combine words. πŸ™ˆ I wrote one page and thankfully no mistake. This is probably my most comfortable x-height, which is 3mm. ✍🏼✍🏼✍🏼

Some knitting wisdom from the awesome Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I may not have time to knit much nowadays, but I still take great pride at winding up the perfect Malabrigo yarn cake on my swift and winder. πŸ˜„

Do you know that if I wrote a different Emily Dickinson poem a day, I'd still have enough material for almost FIVE years?! Isn't that just incredible? πŸ“š

From "I felt a Funeral, in my Brain" -Emily Dickinson, c. 1861. I always forget to capitalize words whenever I write Dickinson poems...

2017 has been a rough year for many of us. But it is also the year of many inspired firsts. I wrote over 50 letters to Congress about saving our public lands, I emailed my government representatives about our national parks, I even called the FCC (an introvert's worst nightmare!) about Net Neutrality. I wanted to say "thank you" to the alt- park rangers, the scientists, the ACLU, the Dreamers, the Women's March, the Science March, every person who believes in The Cause and DID something about it - thank you for inspiring me. Keep fighting the good fight. πŸ‘ŠπŸ“£
