On A Short Break

Hey there! I’m in the process of moving this blog from tumblr, where it currently lives, to a hosted platform that will be better for actual blogging and websiting. The blog address won’t change and I’ll still have tumblr for those who follow me, but the weekly new releases and other long bloggy-type posts will go on the blog, and this here tumblr (at cherita.tumblr.com) will just be for tumblry micro-bloggy type stuff.

In between that and writing and enjoying the summer, it’s taking longer than I hoped (I fully admit the enjoying the summer part may be getting in the way), so I’m taking a short blogging break until I finish. I’ll be back July 31! Maybe with a new look… 👀.

Until then, enjoy this dope light graffiti skeleton break-dancing on Venice Beach!

The Devil Winds of Fall

The Devil Winds of Fall

❝Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.❞

– Rumi

This quote feels like Fall to me, and today is the Fall Equinox: day and night are in balance, but that balance will give way to creeping darkness, to leaves that change and crisp and fall, to pumpkin spice and butternut squash and scary stories that pound the heart...
