    The Space Between


    So, I woke up the other day in a beautiful spot.

    I was in between.

    It’s the only way I can describe it.

    There’s a big part of me that wages a battle between letting go completely and working neurotically and worrying about everything because that’s how I will reach …

    What is beautiful? 

    Is it that something is appealing to the eye? Bright colours that correspond with each other on the colour wheel?

    Is it something natural? Does it have to be a landscape or a flower? 

    What about art? Why is art beautiful? Does art have to …

    In this blog post I’ll be writing about storytelling. It’s one of the assignments for the DS106 .

    What is storytelling?

    This is one of the big questions because I think storytelling is something that is really human. I may have to revisit this idea if we ever meet aliens …

    Here Giffy Giffy Gif Gif!


    So I made this particular gif from scratch using Gimp. I’m doing it for the Double Gif Bonanza. It’s not exactly the assignment but I liked this picture more.

    I stumbled into it and I think I can replicate the process. It’s not quite right but I’m not sure …

    A Digital Facelift or A Bag of Gold


    So I’ve used what is probably the most common title used for this assignment. It’s the assignment in Unit 2 where we watch some videos of Gardner Campbell and he talks about the “Digital Facelift” versus a real “cyber infrastructure.”

    I’m not ashamed. There’s no sense re-inventing the wheel or …

    The Daily Create: To Be a Kid Again


    When I was a kid there was something I loved more than anything else.


    I wanted to be in tag team with my best friend to be like the Legion of Doom.

    I wanted to look like the Ultimate Warrior

    And to wrestle like Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect.…

    DS106 Weekly Summary


    So, I started this course on Monday and I have been really enjoying it. It’s hard because I’m not the most technologically inclined person. I mean, I can get by, but I’m learning so much about the nuts and bolts of how to do stuff. I really love that.

    I’m …

    What is Art?


    I want to devote an entire entry to the question of “what is art” instead of putting it all together with the other things required in the weekly summary. It was also suggested that we create art in to explain what we believe art is. Writing is my art of …

    The Daily Create


    Just a quick one, commit a random act of kindness. This is a very small act but I let someone cross the road in front of me when I didn’t have to. They waved and smiled and I smiled back. It was nice.

    The Daily Create – A Sweet Note to My Love


    Dearest Paula,

    I love the love I have for you.

    The butterflies in my stomach flew away a long time ago. My nerves have calmed down and I’ve lost my rose coloured glasses somewhere along the way. Without these things I’m left with my real, true, honest and raw love.…

    Hello World!


    I think “Hello World!” is an entirely appropriate title for this first entry.

    I’m going to be starting my DS106 project. I have no idea what it will entail but I’m quite excited. I hope that it expands my horizons.

    I’ve called my blog Moving Constellations after the old Norse …
