Thoughts About Inktober

Today is October 31st and the final day of the Inktober challenge. Although I started a few days late (my first submission was on October 5th) I managed to maintain my streak. I see this as a great accomplishment and a reminder to myself what I am capable of. At the beginning, I intended to […]

Battling Unconscious Biases with Art

I may have mentioned this before but I love listening to podcasts. My list seems to grow every month as more, interesting series come to my attention. I stared listening to Radio Lab a few years ago and it was like my gateway drug. Podcasts allow me to insert information into my brain while I […]
