This idea was mooted in Neutral Grounds and
I thought to bring it to life here. Quotes or contributions
do not have to come exclusively from me but I will be
updating weekly, barring unforeseen circumstances.

- Franz Kafka

[HR][/HR]​


Franz Kafka, the story goes, encountered a little girl in the park where he went walking daily. She was crying. She had lost her doll and was desolate.

Kafka offered to help her look for the doll and arranged to meet her the next day at the same spot. Unable to find the doll he composed a letter from the doll and read it to her when they met.

"Please do not mourn me, I have gone on a trip to see the world. I will write you of my adventures." This was the beginning of many letters. When he and the little girl met he read her from these carefully composed letters the imagined adventures of the beloved doll. The little girl was comforted.

When the meetings came to an end Kafka presented her with a doll. She obviously looked different from the original doll. An attached letter explained: "my travels have changed me... "

Many years later, the now grown girl found a letter stuffed into an unnoticed crevice in the cherished replacement doll. In summary it said: "Every thing that you love, you will eventually lose, but in the end, love will return in a different form."

You have never been and never will been in the same physical place twice
since the Earth, the Solar System, and the galaxy are all moving through space.

Where will you go today?
What will you be?

    I was eating dinner, watching a streaming show and suddenly he rips open my door insisting his life is in danger and insisting he get into my place. I refused and refused but did call 911 as requested. Then he damaged my screen door trying to get in and I feared him destroying more so I opened it. The guy was heavily high on something. I heard one officer ask him if he was on meth. But while I was waiting for the police to show up, I convinced him to get out of my home and go into the laundry room across from where I live. Mister insane really thought people were outside ready to murder him. San Leon is not a crime infested place. Four cop cars showed up and for some reason the fire department. The police instantly put him in handcuffs and lead him to the first car to start questioning him.

    The next morning, I'm still shaken. After the cops hauled him off and after talking with my landlady about what happened & my insurance. That's when I popped in here last night to only have a long chat session with the other online friend. Progressive said they'll be calling me by the end of today to talk about the claim. I know they're talking with the PD to hear any details I some how missed telling them about, first. The person I was Skyping with last night. I don't think I've really brought them up here mini-blogging when posting Loaded Stone pages. We're in a collab project together with him in the lead. He's making a videogame and I'm providing additional graphics to it.

    I hope your insurance treats you fairly and more can be done to prevent this from happening again. And you working with someone on a video game is great news. I love the developmental side of game design(when it isn’t corrupted by incompetent management) and would love to hear details on the game when they are available.

    For the longest time I thought this was under the radar intentionally but I noticed when he and I were talking on Skype, he now is on YouTube showing the game we've both been working on. It's name is Pig Tail and if you like I'll post up a link to that video but I know for a fact it's Select Zone screen is different now because a new one has been made by me, he likes. Everything you see in the video is still what he's put in. The guy is really multi-talented. I'm about to start testing soon a game he wants to release named Chronos. Back to the development notes. I proposed a villain that impressed him so much it's going to be used as one of Pig Tail's bosses. Picture 3D dulled down to a homage to 16-bit, a tornado of bones with a wolf-like skull at it's highest point.

    Is everybody ready for Saint Patrick's day? I remember in school being pinched real hard if you forgot your green. Then one year I got the bright idea of telling people my eyes were green. People claimed that didn't count and that was cheating. I don't think it was.

  • systemcat systemcat:
    Tried to do that same stunt myself. People don't count hazel eyes either having green in them.
