We are making a big move at the end of the summer, so travel has been on my mind. This move is different than my past travels. I have a real home here, for the first time since I was a kid, and I am going to move with my tiny family and establish a new home elsewhere. I’m not desperately seeking anything, I’m not trying to escape anything, and my accomplishments do not depend upon being on the road.
(Note: The following post was made previous to my conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy.)
The feast day of St. Catherine of Siena is April 29th. I consider her my Patron Saint, the woman who helped bring me to the Church.
My name is Alana Solomon and I am an artist, writer, and Binghamton University undergrad with a concentration in medieval & art history.
I was raised in central California and Seattle, Washington. This blog is my journal, as well as a space for documenting creative processes and art projects and sharing sources of inspiration.
Here is the ever-evolving blogroll, and a bibliography of sources cited in posts.
