ANATHEMA COVER-01

Donovan Lord

I am so proud of having completed my book Heartaches and having had it published this year. It was a deeply personal project and now I’m moving on to my next book, my actual full length memoir about the first 25 years of my life – I’ll have to write a second one about the […]

This Year So Far

The energy of my own life started to shift towards the end of last year but was somewhat there the entire year as well. I felt that I had this need to express myself that was being stifled but I realized that the one stifling it all of these years has been myself.

DEMS WIN HOUSE

Mid-Term Reckoning

MID-TERM RECKONING I, Donovan Lord, always vote.  It doesn’t matter what the purpose of the election is, if I’m eligible to vote, I will.

Kacey Musgraves

I first discovered Kacey Musgraves in 2013 with the release of her album Same Trailer Different Park which is an incredibly introspective and beautiful album.  My faves are Dandelion, Merry Go Round and of course, Follow Your Arrow.  She really came out as a powerhouse in “new country” but she’s not even like the rest, she’s […]

Macarons

I was watching a new show a friend recommended called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. In it, Jane Lynch plays a guest role in which she mentions macarons.  I suddenly remembered how much I loved these delicate yet intense (much like myself) treats! So I broke out my French Pastry cookbook and got to work. It […]

Writing Milestone

I thought I would post this to show a tangible, physical illustration of my many years of hard work on my memoir. It’s easy to talk about it and it doesn’t seem real to others or even to oneself until it’s in physical form, but here is my work (and my agony). I finally completed […]
