Growing & Changing

Thursday - 3 June 2004

I just made a whole long post with pictures and all… and lost it 🙁

This will be the quick and dirty style: – still learning the new system,printer,scanner tons of software, learning new work flows, ps7, and so much more:

On another note, Frank Doran Sensei, Russel’s Aikido teacher from the bay area was here for an Aikido retreat.

The potluck was held at a truly beautiful home, this is a shot of the stairway leading to the house:

And in case you were wondering, the Agave , is starting to open up:

I need to take some pictures again soon, more is happening. I noticed today when we drove by after coming down from Eureka. We saw “The Day Before Tomorrow”. Great special effects, ok story, not as sappy as it could of been and not as good as it should of been. The premise being greenhouse gases/ the Green house effect/ global warming / melting of polar ice caps/ super storms/ …all caused by ….. yep burning of fossil fuels, which they didn’t mention. Too bad. I read a book a few years ago about these storms, it doesn’t seem that unlikely to me. The way the weather has changed in just my 50 years is astonishing.

I also spent over a week at the land house without coming into town at all.
Testing the waters, seeing what I would need to make it really livable, if there was no town tiny house rental.

Yep, this is a long entry.
On a more personal note here, over the last month or so, I have seen bloggers disappears.. for some reason it tweaks me.

Then Movable Type did it’s new pay-for model and the forums over there really changed. A lot of long-time power users bailed. Some seem to have just gone away.

As I mentioned in this post,Tech Tv is gone. Call For Help is gone. Screensavers has become a gamers only show it seems. I learned a lot from these shows and miss them, especially Leo Laporte.

Now my favorite forum is blowing up it seems. This really bums me out. Some of my most favorite people are leaving. Even though I know these are just online ‘acquaintances’ – I have become attached.
So I guess the lesson here is letting go, growing with change, moving on.

But who will be there to help me on this road of web?
I would never be where I am today without this forum.

Yea! to the one that came back, she knows who she is!!

    How odd. I could have sworn I posted here? Anyway – I can’t recall all that I said, except that I used to watch Tech TV too – oh, and I sent you email, did you get it? 🙂

    Thanks for the email Gaile, and thanks for stopping by. ‘Used to watch’ is the key phrase there… I just wonder how long it will take G4 to go bust.
