Welcome to Inkblots of An Idealist!

Our main motto around here is: “Idealism without realism is naivete; realism without idealism is despair.” It’s difficult to strike this balance, as I know you well know, my friend! We’ve faced our own despair which still continues, but we know you too friend, have seen your own. We would love to sit down with you now with conversation overflowing over tea. Since we can’t, we would love for you to walk alongside us as we all find a spot of hope when life gets messy. 

What’s New In:
