The open cave welcomes joy and everything else.

On a Friday full of freedom I sang behind the wheel The black days now behind me I look forward to the miles ahead And as the chorus left my lips and I waved at the sorrowful faces of my neighbors I rolled down the window to bathe in the careless dance of the windContinue reading “The open cave welcomes joy and everything else.”

Back from hiatus: New Addendum Episode!

Dear WordPressers, Wow, it’s been months since I’ve been here. I missed it. I started a new job, so it turned the routine upside down for a short while. This whole staying creative while having a full time job and a small business is kinda difficult, but alas, the content is back! I’m so thrilled […]

Everything changes. And that’s ok.

Momentum swells and recedes at a moment’s notice. So much has changed in the last month that I’ve had to recalibrate my commitment to the blog and the Idlewind collective endeavors. Today I started a full time position working as an office assistant– It’s a really wonderful thing for my family and I, and youContinue reading “Everything changes. And that’s ok.”

The Addendum Podcast is real now, I guess…

I sort of blinked and realized The Addendum Podcast is ten episodes in. The first five episodes are absolute garbage, but the more recent ones clearly sound like me getting my act together! I really do love this. It’s like my own method of immediate introspection. It allows me to form some thoughts about myContinue reading “The Addendum Podcast is real now, I guess…”

No outline today. Progress!

There’s been very little activity this week, but what I did put together is documented on the ramblings at Addendum. I’m trying to be less precious about every little recording I make.

Jaime, on the Record.

Baby steps: In my preparation for the upcoming Talking Text Podcast, I’m practicing my talking chops in a series of tangents and noise over at Anchor. A fantastic app. It is the 21st century. More stuff to come! -Jaime Alejandro https://anchor.fm/addendum/episodes/14a4024

Step 2: Podcast needs a theme song right?

I’m mulling over the tracks to use for the theme of the show. I’ve been recording music since I was a kid, so I have a few recordings lying around that I could use. This one is quite old, but I like the noise it brings. There’s a few more, we’ll see what happens. TwoContinue reading “Step 2: Podcast needs a theme song right?”

Talking Text: Podcast Update

It was my goal this year to start a podcast for writers. It would be easy to say it hasn’t happened because of work, family, procrastination, etc. There’s no excuse. I am sorry to say it has not happened because of my inability to time manage. I acknowledge this and now that it’s out thereContinue reading “Talking Text: Podcast Update”
