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

Gone Swimmin’

We’re off to Uganda and Rwanda tomorrow! (“We” being me, Kate, Elliot, Jill and Spencer–the whole Peru crew.)


You have to strategize when planning your trip reading and knitting; the reading must be enjoyable but not so much of a page-turner that you blow through it and have nothing to occupy you afterward, and the knitting must be very portable and relatively mindless. Socks are ideal, but I haven’t felt like knitting socks for a good while now, so I’m going to start on this cardigan in happy yellow Hempathy yarn (made of hemp, cotton, and modal). I need more yellow in my life. As for reading material, The Uses of Enchantment is easier than it looks. Fairy tales + psychology!

Catch you on the flip side—two more entries after this one in September, and then I get a brand-new website!

    The title of this poem is ironic considering the bilharzia kept us from swimming.

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.
