All of It


I think this is an appropriate image for this period of digital reorganizing. It is a walk among the weeds for one reason.  The wilderness image 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, and it dissolves to this day and disappears much my years with this resource posted (here) and another assortment (here) for the fun of it. Some of it is brilliant but amidst other meanderings. In the meantime, thoughts, referrals, and leads on the following spectacular insights have been greatly appreciated.
