  ["like the spinners that you'll find, in the pinwheels of your mind..."]

November 17, 2021

Back almost a year and a half ago, when isolation and pandemics were new, a couple friends spent several hours going around leaving gifts of spinning pinwheels at my place and the places of various other friends. The pinwheels lasted a winter and two summers, and various lawnmowers, snowblowers, and obnoxious neighbor kids. Like the Mars Rovers, they didn't all fail at the same time. First one was gone, then another, and today I noticed that the wheel was gone from the final one, and all that remains is a stump. I rememeber noticing that it was spinning just a day or two ago when I got home. So alas, all good things must come to an end. But they performed their job admirably and for a surprisingly long time, and there's always the possibility of new good things and good times, and they lasted quite a long time. Huzzah!

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
