i'm effie. i like marginalia & ephemera & sacred, holy things. i believe in simplicity & kindness & joy. i think we are limitless and brilliant - at the same time, specks of dust. it's a matter of bringing things into the right focus at the right moment. i have a darling little family, a cozy home & lots of love for everyone, including you. <3 i pray and i curse, sometimes at the same time. i believe in radical forgiveness. i like to have fun, i like to laugh. food is important to me, you'll never convince me a loaf of bread made with my own loving hands is bad for me. art & creativity mean a lot to me and my family. making things > consuming things. i would write more, but my baby just woke up from a nap laughing and i want to go play with her. <3

Divine spirit, make me an instrument of peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
Where there is sadness, joy...

-Prayer of St. Francis
