Learning new skills

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]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 an open-ended process. Expertise often […]

Glow

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]To me, creativity is not a character trait but a separate force that each of us has access to. It is like an internal glow that radiates ever outward.

I often draw a blank until suddenly something flips a switch and I have a post … thought sometimes it might be a day late.

This was my first real attempt […]

Learning to play a game with broken rules

One of the reasons I took on this journey in the first place was a fundamental disrespect for the society we live in. I find many of our societal priorities completely backwards. If anything, much of what the mainstream considers important actually makes me cringe. I have been told many times that I need to learn […]

Anyone for a visual journey?

Now that I seem to have formally switched from Hiker to Traveller, I have access to more of that pesky technology that I have a love/hate relationship with. Which means I can now bombard people with the millions of pictures I have (and will be) taking. OK, maybe I am exaggerating that number a TINY […]
