"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.

Blessed Are the Clean of Heart


One more shot from the citadel at Akko. (Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday! And it’s Jill’s today!)


After a couple nights in Haifa, we made our way south toward the Dead Sea (next post!), stopping at Zippori National Park to admire all the mosaics.













In the afternoon we visited the Mount of Beatitudes for a little New-Testament refresher course.








There is a basilica and gift shop, of course. Jill and I enjoyed chatting with a nun who was hard at work on an art project for Christmas.



Way too many pilgrims! (Kidding, Ma!!!!)


Does it say in the Bible just how beautiful the Sea of Galilee is?







A visiting choir group was performing in the church, and the doors were wide open. It was so lovely and atmospheric.

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.
