Sleep and the Creative Mind

Like many creative people, I don’t find sleep easily.  This is a common theme among those for whom their mind is their instrument and as I lay in bed last night starting into the darkness, trying not to think of the latest crazy thing to do next to add to my list of projects, a thought slipped… Read More »

Origin Story, now with added back story!  I’ve just imported the posts from my original blog on which included some of my earlier projects.  They may be a bit of a mess and the categories are all out of whack but good to have it all under one roof. One project I’m going to have… Read More »

Site Update

Long time, no posts.  To paraphrase Ian Malcolm; “Life finds a way… to interrupt the best laid plans”. Since the last update I’ve been working on a few little projects, planning some bigger projects and started on massive project that comes under the heading of “life goal”.  The little projects involve putting up shelves and… Read More »
