When I’m Not Writing…

Admittedly I’m not a professional photographer, but that doesn’t stop me from partaking in the act and playing at it. For me it’s definitely more of an armchair hobby, but it plays nicely into my interest in aesthetic relative to colours: hues, tone, saturation, contrast, etc… Anyway, here’s the album. I’ll be adding more to…

Lifesong

A canopy of words and paper leaves They all of them fall at once into her breast Being dyslexic led her to read them backward And interpret their meaning forward Deeply into her pillows did she sink To give thought to a mode of delivery Something that would make sense to that one person The one who would lay shoulder to face And weep the tear that would change her life But when thought was placed in this task She found there were far too many words Far too many letters, far too many Climb the trees to seek the…

My goal with this is to have nerdy conversations either with myself or with anyone else who…

Vagabond Update

Par for the course, I’m running behind schedule on this project. I’ve got legit reasons this time: life and work.

During my testing, and following the documentation on the Vagrant website, I didn’t have to manually add Boxes to Vagrant. The Vagrantfile was responsible for hosting that information and acting accordingly. However, that doesn’t appear to be the case any longer because every time I’ve run the test code for at least the last…
