Learning new skills

Learning new skills

As I have mentioned a few times already, I have been devoting my time lately to learning 3D modelling and animation skills. I am learning these skills for both the pleasure of learning and the satisfaction inherent in creating. I have never sought expertise in anything. To me learning is ... Read More

What stealing pens while eating a salad taught me …

I have recently been dealing with what I consider the flip side of writer’s block. Basically instead of a lack of ideas to write about, I have a surplus. There are so many that they are bleeding together, and I am actually having a difficult time separating the thoughts enough to put them into words. ... Read More

Both … neither … everything in-between

I am writing a book. This is not news to some, an interesting fact to others, a meaningless mess of images to some others … and many other things to still many other people. Actually, I am writing several books, but THIS book … this book is special. It is ... Read More

Re-reflecting on reflections

My journey of late has become more metaphysical than physical. Who knew that would be the more painful adventure? I love mirrors. Well, to be more accurate, I love reflective surfaces. To me they are like gateways to other worlds; doorways to What If. They are spark plugs for the ... Read More

What do I believe?

Some parts of my core belief systems are hard for others to understand. Whether it is a failure on my part when trying to explain, or they simply don’t see it, it can be frustrating. But a FB friend of mine recently pointed this video my way, and beyond it being an amazing demonstration of human skill, ... Read More

#atozchallenge: Justification (a political poem)

How do we justify? We always DO. Because I am to the LEFT, through and through? Or maybe others, they may cite, To the RIGHT is what is right. But between me and you, and maybe he and she … Is it possible that there might a middle road be? Could maybe a bit of RIGHT be wrong? ... Read More

The Song of the Pond

The other day, I did something I have not done in a very long time, yet something that should be a staple of my soul’s diet. I communed with nature for a bit. As many of my recent posts have indicated, I am struggling with a lot of things at the moment … all which ... Read More

Real virtuality

I just wrote a tongue in cheek post about how silly Social Networking can be. And while I do laugh at it, I also find it very disturbing. It seems to me, that in our constant search to “improve” the human condition, we are actually straying further and further away from being human. The new ... Read More

The value of do nothing “useful”

For most of my life (I pretty much discount the first few years when I was more interested in shiny objects than life paths) I have been trying to figure out what exactly I want to do when I grow up. Over the years I have managed to cross off the list a whole bunch of things ... Read More

Redefining “Gratitude” mark 2

I did not intend to write a post here today. But the universe works in mysterious ways, and here I am. I wrote a tongue-in-cheek bit on my other blog (which is kind of devoted to tongue-in-cheek) called Redefining “Gratitude”. Unfortunately it is far from deep and thought provoking as the title might imply. Little ... Read More
