Editor Disclaimer — monthly compilations, guides and modules are a reflection of an approximate 27-day (one lunar cycle) Intensive: topic selection, research, notations, life experiments + art-making. My writing process takes place during an approximate 3-day period, concluding on the day of the new moon. Content is gathered, sorted and organized, followed by layout and design. My goal is completion, not perfection.
