Theresa Marie Magario {Miville-Deschenes}

Most currently:

Moody (all the moods).

  • Dealing with the aftermath of cancer(s), a global pandemic, a couple of interesting bacterial infections, and a hysterectomy. (I hate all of this -math)
  • Kind of navigating obliquely through a vague bardo. Not performing currently (because 3 years of being sick); writing (hey, how do you get published without being publish?); creating collages; crafting with popsicle sticks and cardboard, and bones; pixel trashing my own photographs, and editing little films.
