The Raven's Cauldron

Sometimes you have a wondrous dream and you begin building it the best that you can. That’s precisely what I was doing several years ago when I created The Raven’s Cauldron. I had several other paths growing at the same time and was able to juggle them all. A lot has happened since 2014, though, and it’s time to recognize when things need to be let go.

After a while, especially after the stress of the last presidential administration and the chaos of 2020, it became too much.

A year ago I was helping a friend to dig up dozens of plants from her yard so that I could bring them back to Ohio with me. I had changed my plans on traveling in order to have a "central" location in Anthony's place, then travel more without everything that I owned packed into… Continue reading A year…

Ghosts and towns…

Picture taken about 35 years ago in Arizona. "But things like this they had to pass, Sunk in the sand on the Arkansas, This rosewood sofa that clutched the sun With every foot a gryphon's claw; The saw it shining far ahead, They turned to see it far behind, And dreamed of men who dared… Continue reading Ghosts and towns…
