Grateful 2019

Grateful 2019

Starting 2019 with feeling grateful for the things I have in life. Nothing seems to go right, but I am thankful for family and friends, my dog Georgie, and that I have a place to lay my head at night.

I’m grateful that I get to spend mornings with my grandma having toast and coffee. She’s 95 and is an inspiration for how to live your life and be thankful for everything in it.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without my family. They have stood by me no matter the circumstances. I have a roof over my head and people who love me. I am proud to call them family. We don’t always agree, but we get along and love each other.

I’m thankful for my friend, Pepe. Always working hard towards his goal or pursuing art as his passion. He’s always got a kind word or an encouraging way of looking at things. We’ve been friends for almost 35 years, and I consider him family.  We share a passion for writing, creating, and contributing our art to the universe. We share a love of comics, movies, conventions, and Prince.

In all, I have an abundance to be thankful for. I am hopeful for what 2019 will bring too me.

New workflow

I got the new Apple Pencil and I’m using it to hand write my blog posts. Feels a little awkward at first, but I like that I can scratch out new posts as if on paper, which I really like. I love the feel of handwriting my thoughts, the scratch of ink pen on paper. This is almost the same thing. Hopefully this will speed up the writing process.

A Query

A question, if you’re reading this, I’d love to know what you would like to see on this page?

I don’t have much going on in my life, but I want to resurrect this site and try to keep it up. And I’d like it to have more content than just fun stuff and links.

So if there is something you want me to talk about, let me know.

I’m also resuming my development of sites for others. If you need or want a site for yourself I’d be happy to do it. My rates are reasonable and really just looking to build up my portfolio. My focus is mostly WordPress development.

To fill time I’ve been taking courses to bolster my skills and fill in gaps in my knowledge. Truthfully I’m finding that I already know most of the stuff. I just need to put it to use.

If you’re interested interested in learning HTML5 or CSS3 I highly recommend this book on Amazon. HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites. It’s a fantastic book that covers the topics with great writing and magazine-like layouts. A great refresher on the skills or a primer for learning something new. Full disclosure, if you use the link above I get a small percentage of the purchase.
