Here you will find my daily haiku, weekly unsolicited advice column “Yall Are Petty”, political essays, herbalist musings and tips, and more. There are also links to my instagram and other social media pages. Most of my content here will be in the form of writing.

I am always happy for opportunities to be published or paid for my writing. I am also interested in opportunities to present at events or conferences on subjects relating to: radical history, anarchism, know your rights, sustainability and old windows, food not bombs, women in construction, herbalism and ptsd, how to write prisoners, grassroots organizing, plant walks, etc. 

My construction business is Karnage Creations LLC and we do restoration of historic windows. Find us online at Richmond Window Repair and get in touch if you need windows repaired or restored.

Another of my enterprises is The Heathen Homestead LLC, our herbal farm in Beaverdam, VA. You can see what products we are selling (all kinds of herbal goodies) and what markets we will be at here: The Heathen Homestead. Contact me for scheduling herbal consultations.

Unspoken secret

Everyone grows beard hair not

Just duderinos 
Prepubescent girls

Are not told about future

Bristly stubble hair
Not by the hair on

My chinny chin chin because

I tweeze those puppies
If we unionized

Our chins, could we all grow some

Luscious lady locks?

Hello anyone who looks at my website! It has been a minute. I got hired to open and manage a cafe at St. Stephen’s church in Richmond, VA. Then they added managing the weekly, year round Farmers Market to my responsibilities. All of this also meant my partner David had to start doing more with our historic window restoration business. I also had to put herbalism school on hold. And you know, we got married and also did all kinds of fun activities with our kids in the meantime.

 We opened the cafe in the week before Thanksgiving, and there was not much sleep. Over a month in, and many of the kinks have been worked out, I have great cafe staff, and we are open 7 days a week to the public. The cafe serves as a Village Green, and we have a smoothie of the same name. I was also able to create a really fun drink menu that works with the Church’s mission of being good environmental stewards and promoting healthy, local food and drink. I even incorporated some herbalist aspects into things like the Golden Milk Latte and our tea selection! 

I am hoping in 2018 to get back to regular haiku. It has just been a 70+ hour a week thing for a bit.

I am #grateful for the #harvest from #motherearth and for the time today to continue processing some of the plant bounty we were able to grow and #wildcraft this year. #herbalism #herbalist #theheathenhomestead #rva #beaverdam #goldenrod #rose #cleavers #chickweed #queenanneslace #wormwood #plantain here is just a little of what we grew and gathered

Keurig coffee thing

Sounds like ailing chicken, sign

Of cultural death

Quilted country sky

Puts paper towels to shame

False advertising.
Yes, I did insult

The quicker picker upper

Clouds absorb WAY more

Try this for morning

Meditation. Water and feed

Plants and animals
Country morning means

Dew damp shoes and slow sunrise

Ease into the day

10/12/17-10/13/17

ethereal specter,

haunted by the past, ghosted

but not forgotten

 

trunk or treat is not

the same, Halloween has grown

too tame.  mischief brews
