Greetings! I disappeared again-and I am back! this time it was not my fault. Well, it actually was my fault because I didn’t catch a problem with the WordPress theme I was using until it was so convoluted (thanks theme maker for abandoning your theme and NOT telling me) that it was a total FUBAR.
Luckily, I have this kid, who just got a doctorate in Technology Education (who’s working a side hustle helping tech dummies (like me) until “the job” comes along). it is a tough break for her and all the other graduates that their day coincided with pandemic 2020. This too will pass, Dr. Dowdy–so hang in there. Mom is still proud beyond words. But, I digress. she has been my go between with the techs who had to wipe everything out on their end, keeping me from pulling my hair out and assisting me in getting my sight back up and running.

good thing i don’t actually have a desk top any longer!

Art—I have finally made a little more progress on the surreal self portrait piece. I know it is coming along very slowly, but this is a big deal for me. It’s intimidating. Like where you are in a room standing naked in front of a room full of people, kind of intimidating.

Blog: I would not mind hearing regarding your thoughts on this new theme. What you like, don’t like, etc. Or, if there is a topic you’d like for me to cover… Hell, just say hello in the comment section if you like! Let me know you’re out there and still reading this. To my email subscribers I’d like to thank you for staying the course with me, I could not even email you to let you know what was going on! If you are not a subscriber, you can become one by filling out the form over there—-> I promise we do not sell your email, it is expressly for my greedy self to use. 😎

Until next time.
Peace,

There’s nothing wrong with Technology. It is when technology is the story and not the artist, that’s the problem
