i fight a hellish battle everyday. always something or someone demanding attention, time, effort. i am most often glad to help, but looking ahead i see only miles and miles of work, stress, and struggle. every moment is a profound gift that passes before it is realized. i am learning how to put the needs of others ahead of my own. the constant talking may very well drive me insane.

Welcome to Perishable Press

Website makeover in progress (again). Actually, this website will probably exist in a perpetually evolving state until the end of time. It is simply too much fun to tweak, build, and learn. I now consider this website a project devoted to writing articles and practicing WordPress, web design, scripting, accessibility, and SEO. So feel free to look around, read some random nonsense, and get into some Business, but don’t be surprised if the universe folds or the sky turns red during your visit… Read more »

WordPress RDF Source Makeover

Beautiful Source-Code Output, Part 1: Whip your WordPress RDF Code into Submission Update: This article applies specifically to WordPress 2.0.2, but may be generalized to any WP 2.0+ version. I love looking at beautiful source-code output. However WordPress tends to spit code out in random chunks, often leaving spaces, line breaks, and tabs littered throughout the source output. This messes things up. Lists don’t look like lists and logically written code often appears scattered along the page carelessly. Often, this is the result of poorly written PHP, which can be manipulated to write beautifully aligned code that looks as good […] Read more »

Good afternoon, unfortunately some processings have been cracked by hackers, so a new secure code to protect your data has been introduced by visa. You should check your card balance and in case of suspicious transactions immediately contact your card issuing bank. If all transactions are alright, it doesn’t mean the card is not lost and cannot be used. Probably, your card issuers have not updated information yet.

Scenes from Deep Space

The Millennium Falcon speeds through deep space, closely followed by a firing Imperial Star Destroyer. A large asteroid about the same size as the Falcon tumbles rapidly toward the starship. The tiny Falcon banks to avoid the giant asteroid as smaller rocks pelt its surface. Then the small craft roars under the asteroid which explodes harmlessly on the hull of the vast Star Destroyer. Ready, are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the […] Read more »

Creative Balance

I have been drawing and sketching for over thirty years. The process of setting up for art, developing ideas, and letting the pens flow, really gets my juices flowing. Once that flow hits, and the music fades, hours disappear, manifesting imagination. This process is so familiar as to happen automatically, as a natural consequence of internal inspiration, artistic creativity, and the desire to express the subjective experience of my subconscious mind. Another important aspect of exercising a creative lifestyle involves the observation and study of the natural world. Drawing from nature, or the practice of representational translationalism, serves this purpose […] Read more »
