Happy June! Here in PA, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the temperatures are reminding me why I'm mad that central AC isn't a given in houses here.

May saw a slow return to writing consistently after some time away for the wedding and honeymoon. It's also continued to be a heavy time to be a human person living in this world with a shred of empathy, so I've taken time to recharge and take action as best I can to try and combat the overwhelming helplessness that creeps up any time I engage with the news for too long.

Sometimes it feels odd to plug away at my corner of the internet with so much going on, but I ultimately hope that art will continue to give us the ability to connect with one another as well as the much-needed chance to focus on something bright and light every now and again. With that in mind, here's a brief recap of the words I put out into the web for the month of May.

Whew! Going back through the month made me realize I was more productive with writing than I felt like I'd been.

Thank you for being here and for following along with my writing month-to-month. I appreciate your support, as always! We'll see you in June for more musings.
