  1. Hi Craig-

    I just read your piece in “the first time I heard Cocteau Twins” and I really enjoyed it. I am a fellow Cocteau Twins and Joni Mitchell fan also 🙂

    I learned about your website via the CT essay – looking forward to reading more about you and your work.



    1. Hi Melanie:

      Thanks for your wonderful note. Thanks so much–I had a great time writing that essay, and I’m glad that you liked it!



  2. Hi Craig. I read your post about Mount Pleasant Library murals by Aurelius Battaglia. Did you have bigger photos of hte panel with Battaglia’s work? I’d llove to see them better..


    1. Hi!
      I don’t have better pictures of the Battaglia murals….I will be going back, since it is my neighborhood library. I will take more pictures and share them on my Instagram account (ethereallad).
