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.
Greetings, hope everyone has had a terrific holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Hope you’re all having a great holiday.
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,
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.
Well, it’s now September, but I was too slow on the draw.
August wasn’t as bad as July. Probably because my philosophy is to anticipate everything going wrong, so it’s less of a surprise.
Anyway, did a bunch of work on the animation project and hope to upload the final chapter sometime in the near future.
See you soon.
So, July is nearly done. And I’ll be honest–July 2018 is the worst month of my life that I can remember. Everything went wrong, nothing went right, and the only direction was southward. Downward. Into the abyss, though not far enough to matter in the real world.
However, August 2018 is waiting in the wings. And given the things I’ve seen, I’m thinking that July 2018 is going to seem like a picnic when the new month enshrouds me.
Sorry to be so depressing, but sometimes the world hurling toward us orbits a dark star.
See you next month, unless my fortunes reverse and I make that dark star my new home.
