Oh, such grand plans I had. Before all hell broke loose and I spent a month paddling against the current.
Progress continues apace. End of January seems like a more reasonable goal now. Knowing me, I'll overwrite EVEN MORE and end up busy until end of February anyway, but I'll try to restrain myself. Getting some more words knocked out as we speak.
Oh also, that thing I said last week about that being the last Station Ident of the year? Apparently I can't read calendars. So I've got that going for me.

Oh wow. Getting this interface to work via iPad is taking a bit of bludgeoning; I think the poor device might be close to having a seizure.
Well, it may look a little ugly, but nonetheless I wanted to get some weekend music and imagery in here before the weekend was quite over. Mission accomplished, hopefully! Enjoy the holiday season, wherever you happen to be. The next STATION ID happens in the new year - see you then.

Assembler, by Kosmur.
December has just sucker-punched me. I admit, I was asking for it. And I'll benefit from at least learning to meet the myriad challenges that have sprung up, even if I'm not successful at all of them. But holy shit, things have been a bit intense. And tragedy has visited a lot of people in a lot of ways - some strangers to me, others near and dear.
My self-concept has ever been the Curious Stranger - the figure who drifts in from the edge of the woods to watch the humans at play, and bemused or delighted by what he sees, puts on the ol' human-suit and tries to mimic them with varying degrees of success. Until of course he gets in over his head, and then the woods begin to look much more appealing than they did before - but the way back is no longer clear.
I basically always feel in over my head.
We mostly think of Halloween as the day of spirits, but really, isn't any holiday - holy day - a day when the divine out-of-context came knocking at the doors of the world so hard that everyone remembers the occasion?
Hang tough out there. Don't forget to act like people.

don't sweat the factors that are out of your control
don't stint on the effort of which you're capable
you have a state of mind to defeat
once this is done, all doors shall open for the initiate

The Cell and the Pyramid, via bldgblog
“Non- Euclidean calculus and quantum physics are enough to stretch any brain; and when one mixes them with folklore, and tries to trace a strange background of multi-dimensional reality behind the ghoulish hints of Gothic tales and the wild whispers of the chimney-corner, one can hardly expect to be wholly free from mental tension.”
