Round Here

Maybe. Just maybe, I can make this block system work for me. I am enjoying other kinds of design formats. This reminds of my last days in the newspaper world when I started hanging pictures in different places on a designers grid.

For now, everything is experimental. If I like what I’m doing and you like it too, then I’ll keep going. I’ve hear from a lot of writers. Most of them hate it. I expect that they will not like it. They don’t think spatially. They use other intelligences to do what they do.

I only started thinking about embracing this after I re-read Garner’s theory of 11 intelligences, which reminded me that I see and think differently. So, why not use what I’ve been given? I can talk more about this if you’d like.

I think, like anything, you have to work through the “five stages of grief.” Not that WordPress is causing me emotional grief. I’m at the acceptance phase right now so this has become easier for me.

So too, with the pandemic. I’ve accepted the fact that it will be around for a while. Dr. Fauci said not to expect any sense of normalcy until mid-2021.

I wear masks without thinking about it. I keep my distance without thinking about it. And, at the grocery store yesterday I realized how nice we were being to each other.

That’s all good stuff.

Stay safe. Stay mighty. Wear your mask. Keep your distance. Look after others. Enjoy every drop of rain.

The picture. I made this picture by looking on the ground. The subject is a Live Oak seed pod. The background is really just concrete. There are a couple of pocket parks along one dog walking route. Sometimes we stop and sit.

I didn’t even think about what I was doing. I just made the picture. That’s how ingrained the action is to me.

Obviously, it wasn’t much. I forgot about it until I didn’t. I started tinkering with it. One thing lead to another and pretty soon I arrived at this image.

Once again, WordPress stepped all over the color and contrast even though I tried to account for it in post production. They are getting as bad as facebook.

    Yeah WordPress really took away putting some design into the page. It’s crazy making. But I really like this image and the color.
