Welcome to the cozy lighthouse in the cove
I’m your host, @kev_mcg—intrepid web diving companion, jaunty poet-of-qwerty-and-canvas, and convivial home cook.
In the studio, you may find loose manuscripts on pattern languages, practicing creativity, and diving logs. In the kitchen, there are odes to vegetables, and half-painted portraits. Later on we can gather ‘round the table to roll the D20 in the metagame of myth, metaphor, and meaning.
