    Duet

    To prepare myself for going away, I’m writing this on my iPad. The WP app has always been notoriously flaky, and as it took three goes to load this after logging in, it is reassuring to see not much has changed in the five or so years since I did this last. I wrote two […]

  • Endless Art

    Endless Art

    The artwork is doing an important job. It is allowing me to release unexpected mental pressure. That means despite deciding I would stop drawing, tonight it’s continued to leech out of me. Tomorrow I need to tidy and organize to get back to some kind of normality, and to fit that drawing into the process. […]

    Things to Make and Do

    The Podcast is done, and I’ll probably sort out the rest of my outstanding work today, which then grants me a glorious Free Friday to go muck about with the last of the Estuary video. All I need now is some actual funding. Can’t be that hard, can it?

    A new Day at Midnight

    Broken Wings

    Big Time

    The plan has always been to diversify. That means going to sub sites that I might not normally consider. Tomorrow, the first of those is going live. I take this as a distinct sign of progress. I’m also going to do a reasonably unprecedented thing and skip Paragraph 2 and 3 tonight, instead you get […]

    A Change is Gonna Come

    May was always going to be important for me. There is a LOT changing in my life, new skills and ideas coming to the fore, and this will be the month when that INFJ-T in my Twitter profile also comes into its own. Everyone has something they need to do away from their normal plans […]
