11.9.16

Friends,

I am breaking my rules this morning and not sourcing an article for today's image. Today is one of celebration for some and a day of heartache for many. 

I decided to create an image this morning that did not focus on the drama of the election results, but one that focuses on unity.  

I hope this image offers you encouragement. May it serve as a very small reminder that we all live in the same nest. We can all fly higher if we care for, embrace, and respect one another.

peace,

Wordless News 11.8.16

Hi Friends,
I'm taking the morning off from Wordless News to vote. It is a privilege to live in a country where citizens have the freedom to decide who governs. I hope you will all practice your civic duty today and cast your ballot. 

Also, I am so excited that the headlines will no longer be about this election. :) Thank you, as always, for following along to Wordless News.

Wordless News Returns 8.16.16

Hi Friends!
I am writing with good news about Wordless News — it will return to a regular schedule on August 16th.

I'd hoped to get back to my early morning creative practice right after I had a baby but that was a naive plan. As I've learned over the past 11 weeks, babies do not feel obligated to stick to the schedule you prefer so my absence from Wordless News has been unavoidable. 

It's been a heartbreaking and eventful summer in the news. I'm sad to have missed the opportunity to tackle some important stories but I didn't want to start back without being able to really commit to the craft every day. 

Starting August 16th Charlie will be making new friends at a childcare center and I will return to Wordless News. I'm so excited to get back to making and I'm so thankful for all of your kind words of support as I've taken this little break.

Wordless News 5.2.16

Hi Friends!
I'm happy to announce the arrival of Charlie William Powelson! He was born on May 2nd at 7:24pm. While the birth didn't go as expected, he turned out healthy and happy. This first week has been sleepy and busy — sorry for the delayed announcement. Wordless News will return in a few weeks once the little guy has a bit of a routine figured out. Thanks for all of your love, support, and patience while I take this little break!
