I post here a lot about arts and wildlife, but much of my passion is really for nerd culture. It’s been something I have felt a lot of this summer. (more…)
I spent most of today meeting with students, but when I wasn’t with young people, I was working in art.
A local arts organization is changing its board and its staff, and you can be part of it! (more…)
When I am not teaching rhetoric, I also volunteer with the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council.
Below is a list of recent award winners. If you see someone you know, congratulate them! (more…)
Look who came to Wildwoods last week … a little “song dog” pup (aka coyote)! He was found by himself when he was about 3-4 weeks old, and has been raised by humans since. (more…)

Last night, I saw Sorcerer and the Shorts festival at the Duluth Superior Film Festival… and I will be adding more to my thoughts before I post them.
But I ran into Kathleen Roberts, a local poet and a leader in the Duluth arts scene (one of the engines behind Prove Gallery).

Maybe she or I will see you there? (more…)
Full schedule here.
Friday we got a call from Samantha, Annabelle, and Lorelei. While these girls were out walking, they found a woodchuck who was stuck in a storm drain. They couldn’t turn away from an animal in trouble, so they called Animal Allies. Animal Allies gave them our number.
The Arrowhead Regional Arts Council (ARAC)… (more…)
