The Return of A Future Ancient: The Reinitiation

Sometimes you get lost in the chaotic whirlwinds of life and need to find your footing again….

If you were wondering where I have been for the past several months, that I went off the grid, it is because I have been putting much of my energy into working on the Queens Book Festival, as previously the literary coordinator, and now director.

Although I am dedicated to the project and I am happy to announce the launch of our Indiegogo campaign (which you can contribute to here), I realized that in putting so much investment into the festival, I had neglected this space here.

Therefore, this official return is my attempt to try to find some sort of balance between these two projects (amidst the other projects I am working on, which I will tell you about another time). And this return, I call it the reinitiation.

First, I felt my blog needed a makeover, so I changed its look. Looking at it, I am reminded of the cave, where mysteries and initiations were held, and the mysterious paintings on cave walls. I wanted to invoke that with my logo and the stony background image. I hope you like it! Let me know what you think.

I will push myself to post as much as I can (most likely, a few times a month), but it won’t be as frequent as before.

Thank you everyone who has supported my blog and I hope you continue on this new journey with me!

Coming Up Next Week:

Interview with author Nichol Bradford (“The Sisterhood”) and my review of her book the week after!
