All of It

Welcome!


I think this image is appropriate for this period of digital reorganizing. It is a walk among the weeds.  The wilderness image was rearranged by some poor fool insisting on being noticed with a pile of rocks to note a path for a wanderer. Do not worry. I’ve been to this place. It doesn’t take long to discover that wanderer’s existence as a bottle cap, the old kind you had to pry off. It had a bit of rusty desperation. It dissolves to this day, slowly disappearing, like the following.

You will find my years with this resource oxidizing (here). Pick a year and a month.

Another assortment (here) is only for the fun of it. It is a timeline set to the last 100 posts.
