Thank you for visiting my website, where I look forward to sharing ideas and images concerned with many interests.
Subjects likely to appear in this virtual cabinet of curiosities include history of material things (sartorial, domestic, and technological), Gothic literature and drama, children’s literature, eerie things, beautiful things, nature, astronomy, animal advocacy, wonder, and justice. I hope to promote connections between seemingly disparate things that lead
to intriguing ideas.
