As noted before, I intended to stop adding to this blog after the last post, but this one is special, for a friend who has suffered a loss.

That's the 3rd series of one-thousand objects I've done;  first, a thousand miniature masks, then a thousand paper cranes, and now a thousand blog posts.  I think this will be it for this blog.  At least for now.  To those who have come and enjoyed my blog, a heartfelt Thank You to you all.

Seen This Morning

Another curiously sicence fiction-looking one, I think.  Like one of those 'mother ship' type spacecraft beloved by UFO conspiracists everywhere.

Two Evenings Last Week

Hmm-- ads are invading the blog, even though I've never asked for sponsors.  Is this just happening to me, or do others see them?  I regard this blog as a kind of artwork, both a record of certain aspects of my life and a creative project, and would never consider cluttering it up with advertising messages.  How annoying...
