Another long winter gone, and I am wind-battered and a bit more achy. However, the good Lord, Allah, the Fates, or whatever continues to enable me to create -- slowly. One recent mermaid troubles line art took eight evenings to do. I also was able to save 4 out of seven kittens from freezing to death in the past season, as the "brood" got sick late last year. I should come first, but NOT to North Dakota, as they have taken away my MedicAID coverage "under" the ACA in late January. That was my 400th month of recording the auroras in this cold thankless place, and I made my 9,400th observation & sketch day of the Sun in March. Also close to 20,000 more aluminum cans scavenged just to give most of the $$ to the county / state GOVT. for property taxes that most fools here like to pay.
What of my next goal here? I am now over 170 deviations beyond "fulfilling" #1,000. I am in the 9th (out of 11) long fiction thriller stories that I wrote in the 1980s, with "Time Bombs" and "Danger and Despair" FINALLY uploaded after extensive editing. A TOUGH endeavor! The last portion of this story is called "Vindication" already done, but again, the editing and uploading, time permitting (along with the working of this old machine). I don't know YET how many parts it is, but I suspect more than ten. Those will be "ladder rungs" for me to help reach deviation #1200 in here, followed by 8-10 photographs (the usual?). Until I outline the "Vindication" thus, and know exactly how long it will be, I will just colorize more completed line arts. Two down, and at least two more to go. We'll see. It's high time I do some sort of fan art too, a WhiteOwl or Crimson "Superheroine" problem, IF any of them approve. Thanks to my followers and favers for your patience. This "stuff" isn't easy to do in my late 50's. Sure wish I had a flag counter yet. Till later . . .
