Personal Tumblr of Amber Hughson, owner and editor at PINEkindling, LLC in Ann Arbor, MI. Author of unfinished novels, writer of poetry, lover of stories, silence, inquiry, and art in many forms. On my best days I post original poetry and writerly things - on my worst days I post other people's beauty and a lot of Doctor Who gifs. I love questions about life in my ask & I always answer honestly. Secrets dropped in my ask will be answered with original poems.
