Just a hint of a breeze

It does sound as though we might get Issue #13 of the Maybe Quarterly pumped up one more time!

A glimpse at Bobby's student notes, from Douglas Rushkoff's Technologies of Persuasion course which Bobby may well (knowing him) work up into a finished piece for MQ, might give you a glimpse of the kind of thing to expect from studying around here, with all us school-haters (oh, perhaps I shouldn't generalize from my own experience of indoctrination by The State).

Me, personally, I just finished writing a 50,000 word novel called Foolproof, on the NaNoWriMo challenge, so I apologise for slightly neglecting this blog. I have no idea how pleased I may feel with it, as I didn't re-read, just kept going, like running a marathon.
Bobby's Fool
I hope to offer a shorter piece (I know you're all busy people) for MQ, and even talk the magnificent Bobby into giving you a few pictures to look at, while you read.

More soon. Gotta go celebrate my marathon...

Ilustration is Bobby's Fool, from the so far incomplete RAW Tarot project...

If you want to see what cards we have so far you could:
  • go to the Imperfect Index of our stuff (yeah, it has black holes where information should 'be') and scroll down to RAW Tarot.
  • Search the whole blog for "Tarot" with the Search at top left of screen
  • Use the Tarot Label at the bottom of the post, to look for related posts

Ah, the wind went out of our sails, and here we find ourselves drifting.

For any regular readers (if such exist) this blog hasn't become totally abandoned, like the Mary Celeste (or the Marie Celeste, if you prefer Conan Doyle's fictional version), but our speed has definitely reduced quite considerably.

I have taken on the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a 50,000 word book in the month of November, which steals a lot of my writing time, and Bobby has been producing an updated version of his Okey-Dokey sequence, which will finally appear in five volumes.

We haven't had any offers from new contributors to liven this whole thing up, and with a few courses running even the general forum is quite sluggish right now, with people's attention on their course work.

But don't give up on us.

We still plan a new Maybe Quarterly #13, due out on the Winter Solstice.

Be Seeing You!
