And it wasn't bad at all. I'd been dreading it.

She did the first one to illustrate, and I didn't even feel it. The others I did feel, but it was entirely tolerable.

zeros and nines and art and the old masters and me

I've never enjoyed doing anything art-ish on a machine.   when I tried to be a studio mac hack, I was a notoriously bad one.  and although I was an adept paint/hand retoucher, I only grudgingly retouched with PS towards the end of my career.  I just couldn't adapt to a machine between me and the work.

In spite of my stubborn streak I adapted...and eventually became pretty good with Photoshop on a PC, necessity being the mother of.

but then it happened.  the devil came in the…

Wild Oats Market: being April's Fool I am not, but super stuper-sleuth with stupefied clues YOU ARE his forever fool

Being April and Mark's fool?  Mark Beertown?  Hey, wasn't that great?

I don't deserve anything and what I am to you......thanks for no career and a dead mouse tacked to a future only he could determine my doorway to nothing and nowhere.  What else would for me he determine?

Why Jill Stein Won't Be President Anytime Soon

If you were to speak to most bloggers on this site and ask them their positions on various issues, the candidate whose views are closest to their own has been, for a long time, Jill Stein. Bernie Sanders has appropriated some of her views and that's why he's enjoying some success. In actuality, Stein represents the views of millions of rank and file Democrats - not the party officials but ordinary people.

I'm in a sad place tonight - so I've been writing -

The world is imploding, distant memories, the Goddess is dying, because we killed her, with our toxic fumes, our industry, and we don't care. "We'll find another planet!"
