Life is about making the most of what you have, and language is my most precious commodity. Writing creative, engaging content to enhance learning and communication is the work that fuels my heart and mind. History provides a fascinating platform for us to examine the unimaginable struggle of human progress towards the light of understanding and acceptance, moving through unbearable amounts of violence, desolation, and fear.
Not only is history way, way stranger than fiction, it is the thematic foundation of life and the great mother of all stories. Through this unique lens, we can see the trajectory of our existence and the magnitude of what lies ahead. I am here to share these stories, for entertainment and for edification, and to offer my bit for those who seek the curious details of the Raven.
I am many things to many people—a daughter, a mother, a wife, a friend, a teacher, a pain in the ass. But to myself, I am a social provocateur and a champion of the dark romantic movement. The natural world is magnificent and filled with somber, decaying, and mysterious truths. I look for these reminders in everything because, to me, they are where the real beauty lies. Behind all that we do, all that we see, and all that we are—there is only love, death, and the inevitable passing of time. Everything else is just fodder for our shallow amusement. And remembering how our species has spent this time is precisely what makes history interesting.
Educational writing pays the bill, but this curio shop of history is my labor of love. So, if you enjoy a hearty dose of darkness as much as I do, you’ve come to the right place.
