1) creation, 4) housekeeping

  • (last week) chapter 11 of ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... nearly done in a 5 day span when the toil of laying down rows spun back to the structural patterning and dense meaning to placement of images, alignments, and material used.  these are the ideal momentum-filled hours each night, staying just ahead of the associations, allowing the pages and rows to suggest adjacent artifacts.  switching out the quote for the chapter as now that book 1 and book 2 of ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... are combined into one book, 400 pages, chapter 11 is crucial to set up the next 10 chapters, the arc of 400 or so pages.  used the long excerpt from The End of Faith by Sam Harris.  
  • backing up all work, including sound files to external hard drive and then work computer.  decision to let Gibson guitar go as paying the $520 to retrieve it from pawn exasperates the frustration of having floated the loan for 4 or 5 months at $40 each time.  simply too much money to reacquire - I can buy all of the boys' christmas presents for less - the weighing out immediately make the decision.

1) creation

  • (last few days) several productive hours on ...fence posts rotting in the acreage... chapter 11.  six months of no progress, a series of images stopping up the momentum until a few nights ago and an elaborate referencing of patterns, placement and sizing condensed five pages to three and immediately through, on to ten pages of two rows, all coming into alignment.  euphoric.

1) creation

  • (last few days) tracking high level damage control meeting within school district - primarily for protection against shit-storms that may take shape regardless of me but might still stain me in the tossing off.  
  • days to fix website as somewhere in process of updating link to bandcamp page and fixing off-set link fields, saving as web page, transferring to flash drive, uploading through ftp - the main page acquired an "official_website" page name instead of the "index" label that had been there in the past.  this effectively substituted the page name and left all links and loading of page at error messages.  finally noticed the change and had to backtrack through previous versions of website stored on computer to find what had been changed.
