Hello all. I’ve had a productive month of ups and downs, just getting over shingles actually. I’m feeling better.
I hope to post actual WRITING here soon, instead of updates. But I wanted to mention the podcast interview that aired today. Link follows this post.
I’ve been doing a lot of software work, digital art, and goal setting as well as consulting with a few students at Lesley College.
And reading. I read to help me wind down and sleep better. Never on a device. Only on paper as I’m afraid a book reading device would keep me awake. The book I’m reading now is so darn heavy! I don’t mind a long book at all, when it’s a good one.
I decided to finally read the GIGANTIC book by Stephen King and his son (novelist) Owen King, called Sleeping Beauties.
I found it depressing at first, as it goes inside men’s heads for all the nitty and gritty I don’t care to visit, but the writing, when not overly long in places, shines here and there.
Like this description of a grayish brownish moth:
It was a living color of mute.
I like that. Actually I love that description. Another thing I was amused by is its subtle almost hidden references to today’s times.
A man kneels in the woods before a huge magical tree; for example. But it’s written like this:
He takes a knee.
And ‘dreamers’ are mentioned in an offhand context about sleeping sickness. Also there is a reference to Me Too. However, not in an obvious way.
I decided to paint plastic eggs. The paint did not adhere! It flaked off. But I had fun doing it. The idea was to hot glue them into a wreath for the front door. Fail!
I’m googling Easter desserts as of late. I still don’t know what to make.
If you visit that link after you read this post, it shows lots of ideas. I’ll post pictures if I decide on what to make.
My fluffy kitten was spayed Saturday. She’s doing well. See this fb post:
My podcast with Becca and Catherine aired today (March 26, 2018). I believe I said the word “amazing” too much! Anyway Katherine Cody and Becca Lory chat a few minutes, and then I come in. It’s episode 37.
that’s all for now!
