    Art is a funny thing with me. I have to be in that kind of mood to do a painting or art piece. Most of the time I just can't put paint to canvas, and at the moment same for my writing, the ideas are all there and I know what want just the words are not appearing and the desire seems to have waned a bit. I still do my photography I posted a shoot in another thread with some photos I did recently here.

    EDIT: Direct link is here @think

    Really nice photos :) I like these shots --- :)

    0000 this next little paragraph about me is a bio blip I use at twitch.tv --- as https://twitch.tv/xik6

    Artist & Musician with videos, sounds, and oil paint. I channel inter-dimensional beings from alternate realities and use other multiverses' content. I realize tridoxical synchronized systems of manifolds as my units of reference to measure what I know from the cosmic consciousness' thought streams.

    @Gingerbread Demon I noticed I have a few more points at imgur then you --- but I just use imgur for gifs I would post here --- I have been on there for a moment... IDK I like your photos and stuff- :) some of the big point getters for me are just cross posts from other sites on the net that I needed to have a gif link for ... yeah anyway it does not matter - thinking I should of just added this blurb to the post just above? IDK

    I published 2 new albums or sets of songs derived from two performances -- I video recorded and am uploading to youtube the performances as well,.. the albums are here ---
    https://alonetone.com/newbold/playlists/cave-trippy
    https://alonetone.com/newbold/playlists/ladle's-handle
    because this site alonetone has a dot com after it, you can delete the links --- I don't sell my work there ,.. and I don't know why it is a dot com but the songs are downloadable from this site for free mmmmmm in fact all my songs there are downloadable, all 3479 songs I have uploaded there- :) wait even easier and a dot org

    https://archive.org/details/ladles-handle-1-01
    this link is for my upload of the two albums to archive --- one click download the whole of both albums 29 songs.. :)

    part of Monday's performance on video and audio 5-9-22 a video filter I designed in quartz composer with the macbook pro.


    part of the performance on Wednesday 5-11-2022 these sets of video recordings are uploaded now the monday videos are just now uploading-

    ^ this video is the shortest of the 5 videos made on 5-11-22

    https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9Zb80ovNLWFwzwdWqV4utJAouG0dVkNB
    ^ the youtube playlist with all the videos from the two days-- the videos from monday will be added as they upload- today, tomorrow, and so on - the so-on label. the soon label :)

    working on a new piece with the musescore 3 software --- this music writing software is free but has limitations and is not that expensive to buy - into -- I am not sure If I will do that again? I am almost ready to do that --- I had bought in once but ended up not using the software at least once a month so I dropped my membership --- that was a few years ago,.. it is similar to trekbbs that it is a yearly payment - Of course I am always paying for trekbbs just to put the uploads of images here -- :)


    ^ musescore 3 made the above video I had it put it on my youtube the limit is that I can only create one video to youtube a day--- which I am fine with really-

    Ode to the HUG.
    It says so much without saying a word.
    It comforts and heals.
    It wipes away tears.
    And brings on a smile.
    It gives warmth and comfort.
    Such a small little thing.
    It can mean the world
    to get a hug from someone
    you waited your whole life to get one from.
    Thank you Grandpa for the hug.
    I know you never have had the words.
    It was so brave of you to open up to me
    and not say a word.
    You just gave me a hug.
    And said everything to me.

    I was never comfortable with hugging. Until I met my wife. You said it pretty perfectly, I think.

    I'm not a big fan of hugs from people, but I do like hugs from animals, especially dogs and horses.

    Nothing more humbling than a hug from an animal. It's like they are saying "yeah, you're alright". One of my dogs called Ferne used to lean in and put her full weight behind the hug. She was the only dog I had that did that. The others always seemed reluctant and were only doing it for the prospect of biscuits or other food related treats.

    The animals hugs that really got to me were ones I got from two different horses. Neither of them are mine, one belongs to a horse back rider who I talk to on my bike ride, and the other is at stables I go past on those same rides, and I stop by the fence and they come over to say hi.

    You're making me miss living in the countryside. I used to live in Slad where Laurie Lee is from and had rolling hills on my doorstep but now live in an urban street surrounded by cars and bins.

    We're in a regular neighborhood, but we're far enough out from the bigger parts of the cities that there's still a fair amount rural areas around. We're also in the southwest, so it's cowboy country. One way to know you're in the Southwest is when you see a guy riding a horse along the street, and then a few minutes later you see the same horse tied up outside of a bar. I also heard about some people who rode their horses to Sonic.
