Emily M. DeArdo


I write because that's how I make sense of things. It's my main creative process and has been since I was a kid. Essentially, I write because I have to. 

I don't write about one specific thing, because I'm not interested in one specific thing. So here you'll find posts on religion (especially Catholicism, because that's my religion), books, health, food and cooking, knitting, travel, politics, movies, television, theater, art, books, my writing projects, current events, and...books. (Yes, I write a lot about the written word.) You never really know what you're going to find here, except for knitting and Jane Austen.  (I try to always do a Yarn Along post on Wednesdays!)  

My goal is to share my thoughts and experiences with you in a way that entertains, educates, encourages, and/or inspires. 

I welcome reader feedback, and I hope that you'll take the time to give it to me, either by a comment or on the contact page.
