Beautiful book art:

I admit, seeing this done with storybooks makes me a bit sad, but would be a great use for out of date texbooks and encyclopedia sets. Far better than them mouldering away in some warehouse.

If you read no other article on the internet today, if you follow no other link, I hope you will consider following this link and reading this article:

http://www.cracked.com/article_15231_7-reasons-21st-century-making-you-miserable.html

Posting the contents, sans pictures, here for posterity, because links die. )

I won't say I agree 100% with 100% of the article, but I think a lot of it is right on the money. I'm blessed that many of my real world friendships have carried over into cyberspace, and vice versa, but I also know a few people whose only form of social interaction is on-line, and that is frightening and sad.

There were many advantages and drawbacks to being a military brat. One advantage is that I got very good at making friends in new places very quickly, because we moved so often, but the drawback is that I never got very good at maintaining friendships. I'm a lousy, lazy correspondent and have in the past let friendships die rather than expend the effort to keep them alive. It's one of the things I like least about myself and one of the things I'm continually working on. It is easier now, with a blog, where I can communicate to a mass of friends all at once, but it also means I very rarely get around to answering messages or e-mails, and that sucks. I'm sure I'd have a chance at deeper, more meaningful relationships if I returned correspondence with any sort of regularity. Must continue working on that.

The Basis:
Ferret
A pure white ferret scampers and dances, playing with and biting a hackey-sack, stepping on the head of a sleeping and oblivious black-and-white ferret curled into a donut.
Meaning: Enjoy what excites you!

The Situation:
Paladin
A knight in silver armor with a red ankh on the chest, a shield in one hand, and a steaming teapot in the other stands protectively in front of a hysterically screaming person, guarding her from zombies.
Meaning: You should focus on taking care of the people who depend on you.

The Outcome:
Accumulator, reversed
Benjamin Franklin contemplates a Leyden jar being held to him by a hand emerging from a cloud.
Meaning: It might be time to use some of the things you've been holding on to.

Ask another question.

Hmmm...interesting. I'm already working on the last bit, and I'm trying to do the first two.
