nanowrimo 2010

(no subject)

I dreamed last night of a ship on the sea. I suppose that this is unusual in that I know next to nothing of sailing and have no real interest in it. I enjoy the shore, the feel of sand and the smell of the sea but detest sailing. The ocean doesn't like me.

I am becoming distressed at the frequency and intensity of my dreams. I would blame it on medication save that I have carefully examined all the side-effects listed for all of them and none are associated with dreaming. I must remember to consult Christina. All my medicines are utterly common ones these days, the maintenance drugs for diabetes.

I confess that I enjoy the fact that I am dreaming. I rather like trying to figure out what they mean and reporting them in Baddreams. I guess my distress is that they are so very frequent — they are coming practically every night — and are unlike dreams I remember from the past. Never before have my memories of my dreams been so detailed. In many instances I am able to stand back, so to speak, after the fact and turn the dream within my mind, examining it in considerable detail — detail of which I was aware yet not cognizant, if you take my meaning. This adds an air of "unreality" to an unreal event. It bothers me.

</div> I've had the best day today, filled with learning, experimentation, good conversation and close camaraderie, that I've had in a quite a long time.

I've spent the entire morning conversing with Michael. We built a mirror of my LiveJournal with some features that makes it easier for me to read. Just the process of creating the site and adding the features was pleasant. Doing so in learning mode and while conversing with someone made it the first fully enjoyable day I've had in months.

At you leisure, feel free to visit "http://karljournal.homestead.com" my new site</a>. You'll note that you are instantly redirectd to the actual page with which URL I'll not trouble you. Once there you can see some formatting we played with in the style sheet and an interesting crosshairs cursor that is dynamic HTML. The insertion of the journal itself into my page is nothing more than a snitppet of javascript cadjed from the LiveJournal FAQ.

All praise to

These products enabled a lengthy conversation that would have otherwise cost me in excess of $50, an exchange of files that would have otherwise required postage and a delay of a day or more, and an utterly good time.
