“New Phone – Who dis?” or “That’s a Big Mall!”

Ok… I don’t do tech much. I mean, sure, I like computers… I built one as a right of passage. Sure I’ve tinkered with Raspberry pi single boards and I’ve played with Linux from time to time but I would not say I’m a technophile. I don’t really get super excited by gadgets that we…

Long absences in which to explore one’s self

I haven’t written anything in some time. Partially because I have had so much to say that I couldn’t find a starting point and partly because I have had nothing to say that was really worth saying. The general outcry for justice and complaint about government and religious leaders bastardizing and misrepresenting my beliefs for…

Creativity in a time of Covid

The dumpsterfire that is 2020 is hindering creativity in some… I am one of those. How will I break free before Inktober?

There is just so much…

If you are a Democrat or a Republican understand that it doesn’t matter. Not only do those two groups not define you as a person, they are not defined by you.

Bread for your head.

I’ve participated in Inktober for the last three years and this year, when the 31 day challenge was complete, I didn’t feel…

Poe the Small but Mighty

I don’t subscribe to the notion that when a pet dies, you should get another pet immediately. When Prem died and the wife said she wanted to get a kitten, I cringed. I know she’d wanted a kitten for some time and I knew Prem was getting older, but I had decided not to replace…

A Hopeful Downer

Thinking about the death of human civilization and the natural reclamation of the planet is oddly comforting.

October come and gone.

I am a procrastinator. I’m horribly lazy and it takes a whole lot to get me focused on one particular thing. Inktober is something that gets me focused each year. During the month of Spooky-Christmas, aka Halloween, aka October each year is the challenge of Inktober. If you don’t know, Inktober was a challenge set…
