I am an avid writer and eclectic artist. I have spent years harnessing my skills of observation in my writing and embellish the ordinary in my work. I created my blog to share my unusual and interesting experiences with the world, to inspire people, or simply to make them laugh.
“15 Seconds of Art” is our column to showcase our contributors’ works via Instagram. The name is a play on 15 minutes of fame and it takes you about 15 seconds to take/edit/post a selfie on Instagram. You can find the artists’ works on our column, 15 Seconds of Art, our Facebook page, or directly on Instagram: thirtythirdwheel
If you would like to contribute your Instagram artwork, please contact A. Dawn Pica: email@example.com, subject: “15 Seconds of Art” Submission or send an Instagram message to thirtythirdwheel with your attachments.
“Spin Me Round, Ennui” is a quasi self-help column that covers everyday topics with the addition of a “soundtrack.” I believe music is healing: it gets you through tough times, entertains you on long car rides up and down the East Coast, inspires you to create stories, puts your baby (or fur baby) to sleep, makes you dance, fills the awkward silence…and ennui—is the feeling of going in circles, without purpose. Maybe that’s okay? If we’re not going anywhere, we may as enjoy where we are and hit “Shuffle Play.”
