    You have such a beautiful site, taking so much of the loveliest bits of your others. I love your playfulness and your sharing and invitation, your creativity.

      I didn’t think I was nervous about the new site (maybe too tired to muster up anxiety), but I’m pretty sure that was relief that swept through me when I read this comment. Thank you, Clare! xo

    Snazzy new site! (and how many do you have now?) I like that some of the posts are in two columns, which is different from most blogs. Which further reminds me, my own blog really needs a redesign. Maybe I should grab a big pack of Sharpies & start doodling…

      Just this one now. Zebra Sounds is still out there because I sort of grew up there. I couldn’t bring myself to pull it down, but this is the only active site.

      And you should definitely start doodling. I’ll bring the Sharpies, you pick the music. ;)

    i don’t quite remember how I found you to begin with, back in 2009, on Zebra Sounds, but then I drifted away and discovered you yet again today. I will be spending copious amounts of time catching up! I already know I’ve missed out on a ton of inspiration! LOVE the NEW digs! <3

    Dear, beautiful, J. The more I discover about you, the more I adore you. LOL! This page is precious, and creative, and clever, and honest…it makes me want to be more of everything good.
    I love your doodles, and that you didn’t begin painting until you were well into your 40’s. I’m a 57 year old writer, and although I still love my writing, with the encouragement of magical, Julia Fehrenbacher, I began experimenting with painting last year. So you see, your wonderful story parallels mine in certain little surprising ways.
    I plan on taking more time to explore this delightful page of yours. You truly are amazing!
    Love! Love! Love!

      Aw, Leah, thank you so much. I feel the same way about you. And, incidentally, I picked up paint for the first time in November of last year, having just exited my 40s. Let’s hear it for the late bloomers! xo

      • leah77 August 8, 2014 at 6:53 am #

        That’s amazing, girl! And…the fact that you exited your 40’s is doubly amazing. You look fabulous! <3

          Have I told you I adore you lately? *mwah*

    I love your updated about page! The illustrations really set it off :) Clever and witty as always xo

    • j August 8, 2014 at 7:16 am #

      Thank you, Karin! I had the most fun doing this page, for sure!

    I love all the things ‘about’ you which are already on your site. Now I can love your About page, capitalized, with a tab and a link. :) And it’s illustrated so memorably. If you’re not careful, j, you may also become a professional cartoonist, when you’re not looking. It may sneak up on you, like that ninja! (Watch out, Cathy Guisewite!)

      Ha! Thank you, Lucy! I like illustrating posts (and About pages) because of the process, which is me at my most doodly. I never over-think the art, never worry about being visually true-to-life, and I love what words and illustrations can do together that neither can do as well on its own.

      And it’s a very playful medium, which is always excellent. : )

    Just stumbled onto you after a friend shared one of your images (“Fact: there can never be too many BADASS open-heareted hippie warriors of Love”). I was smitten right away and after looking you up, it’s confirmed. Great!

      Thank you, Olaitan! I’m so happy you found me!
