looking ahead

Man, I’m bad at this blogging thing. I don’t even know where exactly to go from there. (Last post from February 2014! Aaah!)
2014 was rough. 2015 seems uncertain. Rather dramatic of me, I suppose, since that can always be said about both the near and far future…but I’m still going to say it.
I’m scared, uncertain, still a fair bit bitter and broken, and emotionally certain that I’m just not enough, but my God is big. He can handle it, and me. So, in teeny, tiny, very, very small baby steps, I’m trying. In little things. Apparently in very vague things. :-)
Whew. Since it appears I only write words on this thing when I’m in an odd mood, it’s probably a good thing I’ve run out of vague and slightly cryptic stuff to say.

SO. I started looking back through old photos and am pulling out some to share.

Here are a couple pretty moments from 2014 (let’s seek out the good, right?):

The Poe Museum

So I have now officially visited the Poe Museum in Richmond, Virginia, many times and in different seasons.

It’s a small museum (though my friend Katie pointed out that it’s rather large to be devoted to one person), and only takes about an hour or so to get through. No pictures in the actual exhibits, so these are of the buildings and the courtyard.

The exhibits are very informative and they have some cool stuff. There’s a model of Richmond circa Poe’s lifetime, his walking stick and other sundries, and even a monument that was once out in the world (can’t remember where–I learned so much). :-) The temporary exhibits have been pretty sweet, too.

My dear friend Lynne would be horribly upset if I didn’t mention the monthly readings they do; she and I went to the October costumed reading (no costumes for us), which was a lot of fun.

So. You should stop by sometime. Here’s their website. (Also, they have fantastic merchandise and online marketing. Which I appreciate.)
