I feel an urge to get back to art after not doing anything for two years. I pulled out an unfinished carving, but it may not be a good place to restart. The concept always felt too big for the stone, and it was damaged in one of my many moves. So maybe I should let it go. I spent a couple of minutes this evening contemplating it, and an image of taking my hammer and pounding it to dust kept flashing through my mind. That'll happen eventually, but maybe I shouldn't be the one to do it.

Portland area cats probably don't get enough sunlight. This was my cat's reaction immediately after I opened the blinds this morning and placed him on one of his blankets.


From last night and this morning. The cat was parked in his usual spot waiting for the show of jays and squirrels. He and I are the only ones stirring at the moment.

We stopped by Camp 18 again on our way back from the coast. I found a friendly kitty I hadn't seen before. Or rather, the kitty found me.


It's a pleasant morning where I am. Looking forward to a pleasant day. TZAG good people of the . I hope your day will be/is currently/has been good.

Got to see the friendly kitty of Camp 18 today. Not my cat, but a nice cat to see anyway.

It probably goes without saying, but I'm not very good at memes or excrement posts...


After the upgrade to Mastodon 2.0.0 for social.coop, some people's avatars seem to be missing in the timeline and on their profile pages (I'm using the web interface). For example, this is what I see on mine. It's most obvious when looking at local timeline. Anybody else seeing this? social.coop/media/GCHoNyPn_6oM

Wow. Times flies. I stumbled across this picture today. It's from ten years ago when I was taking a stone carving workshop. I still want to get back to sculpting. Some day... Some day... social.coop/media/v2k2muzetemZ

social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
