Malcolm Thain

With much sadness have I heard of your passing.
I remember you as a kind man and a great spirit.
I remember good talks, hanging out on the Platter.
Personal talks. Fun talks. Creative talks.
I remember and wish you well, wherever you are now.

As I’ve been dead here for pretty much a year I thought this the perfect day to start rolling again. Of course I need to re-fresh and re-design the look and feel here… and some fixes would be in place too. But apart of that, I just missed my daily explorations and musings.

Currently I am playing with a cool little app on the iPhone called STORIE – you can get info about it @ and it allows you to bundle photos under one theme / subject. The cool thing about this is that you can embed it via an iframe on any website.

OF COURSE the theme of today would be, guess what, my birthday – with emphazis on DAY.

Thought I’ll track my day – THE day I generally devote just to myself and my current moods. Today is devoted to hanging out, spending some money (including my $200 cash gift from last Xmas), going to the movies and eating to much while the first winter cold and snow front is approaching.

Today I’ve consiously decided to NOT complete this time the SketchBookPROJECT. It’s a really cool project, but rather than doing a half-good job, rushing through to meet the submission date and then be unhappy because I know the result is not what it could and should be, I decided to stop here and to submit next year again (with some better planing I hope!).

Next to this decision I’ve made some good progress this week on several projects of mine. Of course never as much as I would like it to be, but good enough to feel it moving. A good feeling.

One of those larger projects was to transfer my PhotoBlog from Pixelpost to Wordpress, from a sub-directory to a sub-domain. Over the course of 7 years a lot of photos have accumulated and getting all over and not losing dates, comments and the lot plus to transfer the monthly grid – a biggie for me – I dreaded it for a long time. But the past year almost made the site fall into absolute non-existence just because I no longer was able to send photos easily via the iPhone to the site. It just HAD TO be done.

And here it is in it’s new glory: myVIEW – life through the viewfinder.

Tomorrow will be another big step – I’ll be back in the painting room. No words to describe that feeling.
