Hello, and welcome to my corner of this portal of light we call the Internet. My name is Effy ‘Bird’ Wild, (she/her, INFJ, Libra with Libra rising and a Cap moon, soul number 9, in case you were curious) and I am an artist, writer, and teacher. I believe I was put on this earth to hold space for the part of you that yearns to be creative, and through creativity, come into alignment with your best, most healed, most authentic self.

By some awesome stroke of luck, I have managed to gather the most loving, compassionate, authentic, and inspiring community around what I do, and if you’re here, I’d be willing to bet you’re one of them. Why don’t you join us? 

 

 

The Last Leg

The Last Leg

I wrote this for my patrons today and thought I'd share it here as well since it sums things up.  Things are kinda weird right now. I've had my first shot and then the gov walked back the vaccine they gave me so I have no idea what's happening for my second shot. I've...

Purse Dump

Purse Dump

I. I had a very quiet weekend that included a run through Azeroth with two of my boys + my youngest boy's girlfriend. It was super fun. They kept making fun of me because I'm a loremaster and I read everything and watch every cut scene and I don't just blast my way...

GenXZeneca

GenXZeneca

I. I had my vaccine yesterday morning and I'm happy to report that it hasn't been any worse than any other jab I've ever gotten. My arm is super sore, and I am pretty tired, but that is better than OH I DUNNO DEAD so I'll take it. My second jab is scheduled for August...

WE DID IT

WE DID IT

Thirty posts in thirty days!! YES!! It's been a real pleasure. Month-end is also done and I can now collapsey heap for a day or two before starting the cycle all over again. Look what I made throughout the month of April! [gallery columns="5" link="file"...

All Caught Up

All Caught Up

This is my wee little "I was a day behind but now I'm not" post. I had a good & quiet day. There was rain on my skylight. I ate some sharkcoot, and it was delicious. I listened to more news than I should have, but I'm okay. When I weigh not knowing what's going on...

I Love Where I’m Living

I Love Where I’m Living

I. I got *most* of what I wanted to get done taken care of yesterday, but the sun came out and beckoned me and I spent TWELVE HOURS upon it. From 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. The entire neighbourhood came out to frolic upon my lawn - six feet apart - with a little paraffin...

I’m Going To Live

I’m Going To Live

I. I woke up this morning and got up to make coffee - naked. This has not happened since I moved out of my three-story walk-up in December 2019. When I moved in with GG, I started wearing clothing at all times, even to bed, because living with one's adult child will...

Silver Linings

Silver Linings

I. I want to talk to you about Journal Jam because it has been one of the only "silver linings" of the COVID experience. II. Journal Jam started in March of 2020 when we were all on lockdown and pretty much terrified. I wanted a way to connect with my coterie of...

Month-End

Month-End

I. So I'm in month-end which means I'm scrambling, but I have been extremely kind to myself this month so I'm way ahead. It'll be fine. It still takes some scrambling, but not the same kind of scrambling I usually have to do so I'm grateful. II. I am in love with this...

Garbage

Garbage

I. In coffee convo with my muppet this morning. A thing we agreed on because we both have these kinds of people and this kind of grief in our lives: "Garbage human being, yes, but *MY* garbage human being!" We grieve garbage people because we love them. We do not love...

Life. The Best We Can Do.

Life. The Best We Can Do.

I took this yesterday when I was feeling particularly tired - post-therapy, post a long conversation with a friend, pandemic weary... Space buns. Side boob. Those new lines around my eyes. I love them. They tell you the story of who I am.  It's been a good couple of...

Pleasure & The Pandemic

Pleasure & The Pandemic

I. I spent a few hours running around in Azeroth with GG last night, and it was awesome. We also had a listening party - took in the newest album from Amigo The Devil.  Dude made me cry. I love him so much. II. I slayed a bunch of the list yesterday before I went...

Grace

Grace

I. I have been working very, very hard but in that way that makes me feel very, very good. Do y'all experience this? I verge with anti-capitalism so it isn't about money, though my efforts do pay off in that realm. It's about the sense of accomplishment I derive from...

Witch Adjacent

Witch Adjacent

My Witch Adjacent is having surgery today, (Sigourney is finally being cast into the outer darkness!!!) so I am pretty much just holding her body and soul together with my thoughts because that's how I roll. Carly is keeping me posted. Meanwhile, I'm painting. That's...

Storytime

Storytime

I. I watched the documentary series entitled "Q: Into The Storm" over the course of last week and WHOA. Fascinating. Everyone should watch it if they want to understand how the fuck QAnon happened, who is behind it, and how *creepy* it really is. II. Mentioning it on...

Go Frolic Yourself!

Go Frolic Yourself!

Today will be just a few things since I spent the weekend getting loose ends tied up for A Year Of Mary + did some art for me, and I have literally nothing to say except YAY ART OMG SQUEE! This is my offering for A Year of Mary for the month of April. I am IN LOVE...

Pass It On

Pass It On

I. The news is all "dire dire emergency catastrophic apocalyptic do not leave your fucking house on pain of death" + the funeral of Prince Philip. II. I watched the funeral and pretty much felt nothing but annoyance with the focus on the relationship between Harry and...

Giving It My Some

Giving It My Some

I feel like this is all I've got today, but *this totally counts*. I found it on the book of faces and yoinked it because I felt an immediate sense of relief when I read it. And since I've got nothing more (if I pushed for more, it would be whiny - weather, artist's...

#Goals

#Goals

I. Yesterday, I tossed two wet teabags into the paper bag I had sitting on my kitchen table - the one that was holding all the little bits and bobs of garbage I was tossing into it as I went about the business of clawing my kitchen back from the chaos that happens...

The Long Work

The Long Work

Today doesn't have ten things in it because the sameness of things is getting me down a little bit. I am not here to pretend to be up when I'm not. I'm here to tell the truth, so hey, hi. I'm over *waves at all of this* and if you're looking for a pick me up, I am not...
