Inktober Day 12: This year at EarthSpirit Community’s Twilight Covening, I am in the Crane clan. We spend much of the day singing Lithuanian sutartines, as taught by Will and Lynn Rowan. These songs are sung in parts, with buzzing, sparkling harmonies, like autumn katydids, spring peepers, or I suppose in Lithuania, flocks of cranes. There is space for breathing built into the songs, so you can sing them literally for an hour without fatigue.
Inktober day 8: Frail
I am grateful to the community of artists and illustrators I follow on Twitter, who generously share words and pictures of their work, their process, and their lives. Though I can’t aspire to their level of craft and professionalism, they provide inspiration that feeds my daily drawing practice.
