Hullo friends! How goes it all? Well, I hope? You’re having a good week and taking care of yourself? I am currently sitting in my dining room with a cup of coffee while Colm Mcguinness’ folk music edition of Don’t Stop Believin’ blares in the background (sentence I never thought I’d write). It’s unreasonably cold […]

Tallyhi my friends! How’s the world with you? Hopefully not too busy? Taking care of yourself? *raises eyebrow* Good. Don’t burn out too hard. You need some energy left to have a fruitful Holy Week.

Remember, O Thou Man Week 3: A Lenten Meditation, as sketched out by the Hand of the Artist In A Soul I Once Knew

Title kinda says it all. If you’ve read the sister post, you sort of know what I’m about to do. If not, I don’t really know how to explain it to you, so I’m just gonna launch in. Actually, I take that back. I think this one needs some more clarity. Although first: hi. How […]

Announcing Remember, O Thou Man 2023 (+ a few other things)

How is it already almost Lent again. Ahem. I assume a lot of you know the drill already, but in case you don’t, allow me to explain. And elaborate. And bring out new graphics. And ramble about some unrelated stuff. Tallyho! Lent is a Formidably Neat Thing So Lent, of course, is the period of […]

Hullo hullo my friends! I hope you’re well! In important news (that you already know), it is now 2023. Like. How. Just what. *shakes self* Anyhow.

Liturgical Season Vs. Seasons in General–feat. a handful of folk songs, some rambling about Ember Days, and a rant about the secular perception of Christmas

Okay, this is gonna be what the kids might call a ‘smol’ post, guys. Because I simply don’t have time for more. But I really wanted to talk about this. So here I am talking about it. Um…that’s the intro. Tallyho. Disclaimer: a lot of this will be kinda meaningless to my non-Northern Hemisphere friends, […]

Some Advent Meditations–as sketched out by the hand of the Artist in those surrounding me

Hey friends! I’m sorry I was absent this week. It was more or less intentional. I’ve been working really hard, and socializing really hard (cuz holidays), and I’ve been kinda sick on top of it, so I decided to let blogging go in order to catch up on writing posts in a leisurely fashion, and […]

A Bit of a Ramble on Folk Burials + other folk/Catholic myth thingummies (because Death = Hallowe’en…? Kinda?)

Hello friends! Yes, I’m aware I inexplicably did not post last week. DON’T JUDGE ME. I was…busy. If you’re noticing a pattern as far as the weeks I tend to accidentally miss always being folk weeks…it’s ’cause it takes absolutely forever to write a folk song post. I have most of the songs I use […]
