When I forget how to write, I go look at the light. (Then a utility van drives by with the company name of my main character and I hope it means I'm doing something right ✨) #wip #yanovel #amwriting
Holiday craziness respite. Home from city traffic jams and honking horns and have decided to live quietly on the edge of this mussel shell. You can come too.
Magic visit to @albertinepress today: Kids got to work an antique press in their brand new Cambridge studio space, we read and signed #windowsbook2017 , and @ebgoodale showed us some original sunset paintings from the book! Thanks for having us Shelley! Xo

Meet "Zeta Lupi", half of a double star from the constellation Lupus (because of course, the star in the middle of my sketch book tonight was the Latin word for "wolf" 🌌) See the rest of my spacey series here: #juliadenosstar

Happy #givingtuesday ! Thanks to requests, I'm now offering this wolf up as a print with profits benefitting a special dog named Titan, recently rescued by non-profit @marleysmutts Titan's story is a harrowing one I've been following since they rescued him, click over to their feed to learn more. Gentle Titan has the HEART OF A WOLF. He is our brother. Our family. I want to funnel light straight at this organization and all around this dog. Help me do it! Their donations are matched today!

Usual spot. Where I go to draw (and ✨vanish!✨) Everything in the marsh has gone to seed. It's crunchy and cold and good here. #marshspirit
I live in Massachusetts about 20 minutes north of Plymouth, or, place of #firstcontact and "Thanksgiving." Plymouth was called Patuxet, by the #Wampanoag people for millennia. 🌿Today is a day I always think of the land I love. I think of the people who loved it first, called it by a different name, whose families still live here and call this a #dayofmourning Today, I also think about the people who landed here, "pilgrims" with a faithful aim in mind, but also with a mind to "subdue the wilderness"... A mindset I will always be working against 🌿I am standing here today, on this same precipice, because of this meeting then: two minds, two cultures, on this stage of land...Today, I always imagine the MOMENT this day represents. I think about decisions that were made by people about one another, about the land itself. The story of this place, and so the story of this country, unfolded outward from here. I think about our country's untold indigenous history and how nearly all of it is STILL absent from curriculum in schools or excluded from the mainstream to serve a more "comfortable" but harmful fictional narrative propping up a socioeconomic majority. Today I am thankful for, yes, friends and family, privileges and pie, but. I am most thankful that the MOMENT has not passed, that we can learn from history.

Years ago, before I wrote "Windows," I wrote this little poem about yellow in November, and thin veils, and day-ghosts haunting lovely corners. For a birthday surprise, my friend @ebgoodale illustrated it in letterpress and watercolor. I found it again yesterday in a treasure drawer. What do you think? I think this is right where #windowsbook2017 started...a book in the womb! A glimmer of the future of something we'd make together. Xo and thanks again for the beauty @ebgoodale
