Thanks for having me!

I went down to the lake today to shoot some photos of the ice built up there. Don't do much on a tripod so this was a bit of a change of pace for me.

Sorry I've been afk for a while! Looking to get back into the swing of things here.

Wonderful drone for concentration, heavy with nature recordings.

@ian I am full of ignorance waiting to be rectified by beauty

Part of my interest with Japanese is in it being the language with the longest literary tradition. It's so well constructed for it, too, with the vast shades of meaning that can be conveyed through the difference in kanji selection, grammar structure, etc. Just a language with a lot of nuance, especially written.

Updated my photography website's design and URL, just cleaned some things up a bit.

One of the first websites I've written the code for in a long time.

More Ableton fuckery. I still have no idea what I'm doing, but I know a little more than before.

@tbd I really the look, but I got hung up on how to represent multiple depths.

First little beat I made in Ableton. Just messing around, but I'm starting to get a better grasp of the concepts Ableton wants me to institute.

Hugely excited to be at the start of this journey, back into music. I feel like endless possibilities await me. I've got a ton of melodies and sounds kicking around my head I'm excited to get onto paper.
