Systematic 231: Visible Bridges with Ted Nelson. How the web could have been, literature instead of technology to share ideas among people. Put on your propeller hat, because this is a deep one! Thanks @ttscoff!
Since micro.blog is a paid platform, I wanted to see if it was something for me. I’m not a programmer, nor an idealist for open standards. If these are the only things supposedly keeping me hooked, it’s not working. I’m seriously considering deactivating the account.
If I had to derive any meaning from two of my cats leaving the plane of existence in September (2017, 2018) it is that in the 9th month 9 lives were spent. It is, of course, pure happenstance.
Today I felt numb inside, for obvious reasons, and my art reflected that a bit. Still, it’s better than crying all day over the loss of a dear pet.
My dear Bengal cat Rasheed has died because of completions with peritonitis. He was put to sleep to avoid any more suffering. This sucks!
Rasheed reached the ripe old age of 15 years, 5 months and 23 days.
Today’s drawing is born out of appreciation of another artist, who is very fast, compared to me, and very generous with his support of other artists. I wished my art looked as good as his when I draw at his speed (as I did here). Some day I might even be able to do that.
I’m trying to understand why people are being mean to other people, and fail to see a point, other than the monetary gain by the meanie. Maybe I’m too naive for thinking people are mostly good and well-adjusted. Believing in the good in this world is what keeps me going.
Awesome beard, yet minuscule reference (337 pixels square). I got to use my imagination this time for lack of detail. Also, in digital crayons, for a change.
While my cat is sick, yet stable, awaiting further treatment later in the day, I started today’s crayon drawing in Procreate.
Rasheed has resumed eating, and hungry he is! It isn’t his kidney dietary food, but I don’t care. Neither does he.
