I feel it is unrealistic to do comic book pages as a whole and maybe I am not even that interested in that – right now at least. Since Hammer and Magic is an illustrated story first and foremost, I think I should just … accept that and then do illustrations, 1-page, for each chapter – or for as many chapters as possible.… Read more
Stayed at home and helped Char pack and did house and baby-stuff. Char is going south to her family, with Jay and a lot of stuff has to be ready for that sojourn. I also tried to cram in a little bit of business, but it kind of fizzled, so I let go of that … mostly.… Read more
Dragged an old drawer Char has inherited from her mum back down from the attic, because we don’t have enough space – even with our new mega-cupboard. Jay’s toys and clothes are already piling up, but I don’t think that’s so much of a problem anymore. In fact, it feels easier and easier to clean up and let go of our stuff, and also to decide which of his things to keep.… Read more
Case in point about cleaning up the attic to get room for old shelves used for my comics:
The most efficient way to clean up is to throw stuff out.… Read more
So last night when I came home after a friendly meeting with PL (which was wonderful), I felt … a lot better.
Not so much because of the meeting but because, I strongly suspect …
- that I had not checked email all day except in the morning and during a few workhours for a client when I had to check some of his instructions
- that I had not checked news or anything else on the Internet all day since morning
- when I had only checked the national and BBC, plus searched for blogs that I’d like to comment on …
And I didn’t do any of that either when I came home.… Read more
A very focused day, which seemed to serve me well with my apparently-no-longer-that-difficult customer. And with other things.
My computer’s died so I use Char’s and have to get a new one soon – teaching and talks coming up.
Apartment’s still messy but at least we got a changing table set up for Jay.… Read more
Another Rearrange Appartment-weekend.
I need to throw out or store books etc. from the old shelves so only about 30 per cent is left to fit on the new shelves we are going to put up.
In place of the old shelves there will be our new big cupboard with clothes for all of us.… Read more
“Take these dogs away from me … before they bite!”
That’s a line from a song, but it could’ve been a good line for this day on the Journey.
For I felt absolutely on the edge of rotten today.
Dunno exactly why, but as I’ve explained before I sometimes wake up and feel extremely ‘low on energy’, more edgy, more irritable, more anxious.… Read more
Another routine day, when I did some webdesign-job in my budding company (at home), then rested and meditated (sort of) and then prepped for some teaching in webdesign at a local evening school.
I’m off to the latter gig – through February snows and public transportation semi-chaos – in a few hours.… Read more
I had difficulty sleeping in the early hours, as so often these days.
My mind was racing, feelings with echoes of anxiety throwing my focus around like a pinball – and very much away from sleep.
I think it’s a combination of old scars from the days when I was hospitalized perhaps further back, and natural nervousness about becoming a father – a major life change.… Read more
