We recently had a visit from a heron. It was strolling around our end of the lake.

I just returned from a trip which included a brief stay at a beach. There were a number of residents there, including tiny clams that would appear and then vanish with each wave in and out. (We tried to take pictures but they were tough). On the other hand, these guys were everywhere:

Когда-нибудь я привыкну к этому виду из окна, но явно не в этом году.

Someday I'll get used to this view, but definitely not this year.

Did I mention I started a new Dragon Age Origins playthrough with the Complete Bi Overhaul, Polygamey, and Improved Atmosphere mods? It's been great.

There was some discussion on twitter about how appalling twitter is, and since Mastodon seems to be the most popular alternative I decided to check it out. And then the helper tool led me to an instance that let me be sqbr@im-in.space and I had to join.

Anyway, if you have an account add me so I have someone to follow! I can't really speak to whether it's a good social network since my network right now is just me and the status account, but it seems ok for posting and stuff. And I know I have seen interesting looking people mention having accounts, so next time that happens I can follow them.

I knew I'd missed a couple of weeks of checking in but I hadn't realised it was nearly a month. Anyway things are starting to take shape! I'm starting to be able to see where other parts of the design will fit in. The places where the leaves will slot in for example. And I finally, finally got to actually put some purple in - when I picked this design all those years ago, I was under the impression there'd be a lot more purple involved than there actually is...


I am actually a little further on with the design than this picture shows, but not by very much. I started in on some pink, but I haven't got very far yet. Hopefully next week's post will have some actually fairy in it!

I photographed this monarch Sunday afternoon in the Native Pollinators' Garden next to the Somerville Community Path. We saw several monarchs in that garden yesterday, when it was sunny; this afternoon was overcast after rain.

I posted this last night, then removed it because I was hoping to shrink the image. I'm having trouble with the photo editing software on my various devices (I'm still getting used to Windows again, and Flickr seems to have removed the option of posting smaller versions of images stored there), so here it is behind a cut.

booklet with art struggle examples

How to protect your art against cossack raid?
- buy a bigger whip
- tell cossacks not to mess with your art
- make God-appeasing art
- my art already includes cossack raid

What is the difference between modernists and postmodernists?
- postmodernists appeared after modernists
- modernists are boring and postmodernists are fun
- modernists believed in Truth while postmodernists canned the shit
- no difference, because Mikhail Lifshitz hated them all

story about creating of perfect detail

4. Galvanizing department

The detail is perfect.
But people wouldn't understand that.
In every object they seek
momentary usefulness and beauty.

So, coat its spine
with gold and belly
with silver and tips
with copper.

Then they'll be able
to appreciate it. Or,
at least, to notice.

5. Assembly department

The detail is beautiful for human eye,
we only need to attach the cord,
stuck it into socket. Let's have something spinning inside the detail.
Let it electrocute gawkers.
And add a couple of blinking lights.
And sound. Sound should be thundering, like a locomotive's.
Let the people feel all of its usefulness.
