"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

Experiments in incandescent living

Imagine you are a white-hot tangle of ice, dust, rock and gases, and as you hurtle across the night sky the rest of us are celebrating your transit with champagne and gourmet lollipops. The universe is vast, but we are only as small as we believe ourselves to be; and if we lived each moment in that same spirit of humble awe with which we now and again gaze at the stars, the world would be an infinitely happier place.

I blog about books and writing on Mondays, travel and spirituality on Tuesdays, and art, knitting and sewing on Thursdays, but above all I want to use this space to explore the magical connection between veganism and creativity (so the juiciest posts go up on Wednesdays!) On this site you’ll also find Where We Make, a Friday feature on artists’ workspaces.

Pub Day!


Pub day sneaks up on me every time. I’m running around this week getting ready for the launch at Tres Gatos this weekend (special shout-out to Kelly B. for coming all the way from the state of Georgia!), but at some point I’m hoping to settle down to a bit of travel blogging. In the meantime, here are a few LWE-related links:

6 Ways to Manage Your Ego on Quick and Dirty Tips

Here’s to Joy: 7 of the Best Books on Happiness on Signature Reads (thank you, Toby!)

Let me also draw your attention to my just-updated news and events page, with the full details on my New York City event at the end of October, and huge thanks to Scott for making this happen. I can’t wait.

Thanks for your support, everyone—as always!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
