How the time has passed!
Thom and I intended to take a break from our Bible Promises, but certainly not for this long. Worry not, we’ve been taking these months to rebuild, personally and artistically, and have many plans for Guam and her pals. Though I cannot say when we’ll back here regularly, you can find us every day on Tumblr (me; Thom) and Twitter (me; Thom).
The Tumblr project began just as collection of outtakes and extras (some of which you can find on this blog as well); it has since become one of my favourite activities, making small, daily art projects inspired by lyrics, quotes, resident spiders, religion, world news, mental health experiences, and much more. I particularly appreciate the challenge to continue creating when I’m feeling low.
One reason we’ve taken a break here is to work on our respective writing projects. For me this means my collection of Stupid Children’s Stories for Adults (working title!), plus a few essays in the interim. Thom’s been busy too and published his own essays on his wordpress, including a short series on faith. Unfortunately or not-so-much, writing takes precedence over Guam (at least for now), but please visit her on Tumblr and ask something—she’s got summer boredom and is driving us nuts!

First day, First photo.
There are still people on this planet who believe Evolution is a lie.
Sometimes you need to ignore the stares.
Sometimes you need to find a safe place.
As usual we didn’t behave like typical vacationers. It’s way more fun our way.
Us at Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick, 2012.
We have had many fuzzy friends on the balcony of our New Space, but this spider is the largest yet! For those who are interested, these and all other photos are shot on a Canon G9.
As promised, part two of our series, a short poem about anorexia. Being skinny is a dream that too many people believe will solve the deep sadness; many members of my family, including myself, and too many friends have struggled with that belief as well. May you find hope beyond self-harm. For free books about bulimia, please see Feed The Whales.
These books are for Shock Stock 2012! Free! Also we’ll be taking a bunch out east this summer and then more down to Florida next winter. So many whales, so many places to feed! Blub blub, my friends.
