February Notes

Greetings, friends and neighbors.  Speaking of the animation that I mentioned last time around, I neglected to provide a link.  Here it is:

Recollection.

It’s about six and a half minutes, which is (for my own YouTube habits) on the edge of being too long.  But there it is.  The title, by the way, is almost a pun.

I’ve continued to paint, with varying results, and am actually making progress learning Maya.

In the interest of crass concerns, I’ve added a PayPal link at the top of the page.  So, if you have a couple of bucks…

The universe contains many fine people; while in the past I had my doubts, those doubts are put to rest.  Not many, and certainly not enough, but they are there.  If you’re reading this, you’re one of them!

I hope to update this more often, but, as we all know, the best-laid plans….

Adventures in WiFi

Well, so now it’s 2019, another year gone, another year loaded into the chamber.

To be honest, this year has started out better than last year.  There have been some actual positive occurrences.  So there’s that.

I had completed a new animation, and went to upload it.  That started on Saturday the 19th, around 6:30 PM.  On Monday, the 21st, around 4:30 PM, the upload had progressed to 70 percent.

That’s almost two days, so I decided enough was enough.  Off to Best Buy, to purchase a new cable modem.  (To be fair, it was probably long overdue.  The modem I had was at least twenty years old, and protocols had changed since then.)

It was an expense I didn’t really want, but there it is.  And now that I am re-uploading the file, it looks to be much more reasonable in time-line terms.

Guess that means I should do more animations, so as to justify the cost, and we’ll go with that.

Thank you, as always, for dropping by, and hope to see you soon.

PS:  I started painting again, and so far I’m liking the progress.  Perhaps some images soon.

And thus there is no “There” there

Hello.

Since the death of my friend, Bobette Nourse, I’ve not felt the need to do anything at all…not just creative things, but anything and everything.

I uploaded the final chapter of “Hence” a day before she died….normally, this would be a post topic, but obviously some things are far more important.  I will miss her profoundly for the rest of my life.

Still, to step down to the trivial, here’s the link to the last chapter of “Hence.”  Enjoy.  It’s over six minutes long, so I understand if that’s too long (it would be for me, so no shame).

See you next month, and thank you for stopping by,

Bobette Nourse

The name will mean little to most of you, but she was a good friend.  She had been suffering from several ailments recently, and I heard only a few hours ago that she had passed away on Saturday.

It’s a shame that such like her aren’t around longer, but I guess we should be grateful for the time we are given.

She will be sorely missed.
