this past Friday night I found myself in a black hole of depression and I didn’t know how I was going to make it though the night. Not knowing where to turn and feeling like I couldn’t stop. I remembered seeing HopeLine (1-800-442-HOPE) in the front of your book.

I talked with someone there for 2 and a half hours and I truly feel that they saved my life thank you for the book, thank Hope line  for being there when they were, and thank the people that send in their postcards so that others know they are not alone with their secrets





A visit and Magnus Bane

Had a very nice visit with the family from Two's adoptive group this afternoon. No-hassle trip up and back (about 1:15 drive, almost all highway), decent weather (just cold - and there were some flurries up there, but at least it didn't affect travel), and a good time. Our kids said they did spend a little time at first kind of awkwardly staring at each other up in L's playroom (big old and absolutely lovely Victorian, lots of space), but eventually they did find activities to all do together and they had a good time. Meanwhile, the parents hung out at the dining room table, nibbled on snacks, and caught up on a variety of things. These were some of our favorite parents when we were in China the second time, and they continue to be great to talk to. Also, very understanding and supportive of Two, which was very nice, too. Hopefully we can make a more regular habit of visiting in the future - if we can manage a 1:45 drive on a semi-regular basis, surely we can manage the trip to each other's towns more often than "twice a decade". :P

Of course, their house was nearly spotless, which made me incredibly jealous. My house doesn't need to be spotless, but I do wish we had a WHOLE lot less clutter, sigh. Sheila (the mom) said that a) it helped they'd recently moved (last year) and b) she had tried to implement an annual cleanout and massive yard sale as if they were moving - which isn't a bad idea, honestly. Of course, I'll have three people fighting me tooth and nail, but ... well, something to consider, anyway.

Finished Magnus Bane Chronicles on the drive up )

Just started reading Between, which I suspect I bought at one point because it was the Kindle deal of the day. Too early yet to tell how I feel about it. All I know is, I am exhausted (MiniPlu had to altar serve at 8am today) and must crash now.

On the cheery side

Not going out today. Which is a bummer but I think I'll crash right out if I do. I've got the CFS/viral sore throat and general achiness, anyone's guess as to which way it'll go. It rather sucks because I consider the Palm Sunday rally to be a very important one and I'd really like to show my support.

But needs must. It is a perfectly lovely autumn day out there, so I am hoping that means lots of other people will go.

as usual....

I had like 3 nice days and now am weirdly ill again. Bah!!!!!

Reflux or something. allergies. i slept most of today. I keep just falling asleep. Can't walk around without coughing painfully. eating hurts. why! I hate this. It was nice out... at least I fell asleep in the sun a lot. its like i suddenly have painful bronchitis from ... stomach acid? not for the first time. Am taking Dexilant (which i've been on daily for like, a year) and drinking carafate to help with the pain. it barely helps.

I came across a book while the lizard and I were decluttering that she didn't want anymore, but I sure did: Usborne Pocket Art's How to Draw Buildings. I don't know a huge amount of Usborne (I believe they're a UK children's publisher?) but I used to be a fan of their puzzle books, and I've liked their other stuff that I've encountered. How to Draw Buildings is an extremely compact, friendly guide to drawing architecture. It literally fits in my jacket pocket (measuring 5.5" square), and the fact that its audience is children means that I have some hope of following along. :) In fact, I have wanted to draw spaceships for the longest time without having the faintest clue how to do so other than tracing comic book examples, so I have ordered a used copy of Usborne Pocket Art's How to Draw Spacecraft for under $4 through Advanced Book Exchange.

Here's an example of a two-page spread on how to draw castles:

The how-to is compact but easy to follow, while the fully-rendered example gives the learning artist something to aspire to. I'm guessing that's colored pencil and I'm pretty sure I couldn't get effects that nice without working real hard at it. Notice also the inset on the "Cartoon castle" for fun's sake and the concise tutorial on using perspective. I would find it difficult to apply perspective straightaway to something as complicated as a castle like the examples shown, but it's good to know about it. In a book this brief (24 pages) I don't expect anything in depth, just encouragement and some simple tutorials for stereotypical examples of things like haunted houses and castles and skyscrapers. I cannot wait to try the skyscraper tutorial. I adore cityscapes.

I decided to try to put this in practice and went outside to sketch the house across the way. This had the additional advantage of not being too difficult in the sense that it's a head-on view, no weird angles. I won't pretend it's great art (I'm not sure it's evident the scrawl on the left is a parked van in their driveway--all the houses around hereabouts are up on mini-hills because the roads flood during the heavy rains we get sometimes) but it's the thought that counts? I'll have to get in the habit of bringing a small sketchbook with me and doing doodles as I go.

Mostly, the moral of this for me is that books aimed at children can be aces, as I think people like [personal profile] dsgood and others have said.

a Queen Seondeok manhwa

yhlee: Korean tomb art from Silla Dynasty: the Heavenly Horse (Cheonmachong). (Korea cheonmachong)

One of the items in my possession, courtesy of my mom, is a Queen Seondeok manhwa with this cover. Looks reasonable enough, right?

(Please don't ask me for translations; my Korean is not that good. I think hanguksa is "Korean history" and "manhwa" is, of course, "comic," but other than that, who knows?)

The manhwa art style is frequently the more exaggerated comical style that I used to see in Korean manhwa on TV ("manhwa" can be used for animation as well), as in this interesting sequence that seems to suggest that a celestial horse has just laid a golden egg:

And then I still haven't figured out why the king is accosted by the appearance of a dude in Western costume:

(Hint: Queen Seondeok reigned in the 7th century.)

By the way, those gold antler crowns were a legit Silla thing. I always thought they looked kind of silly (also, heavy).

Mostly, I had to share the egg-laying horse with y'all. :)

- If you have ever wondered to yourself "What's my blog aesthetic?" well, wonder no more: you can find out here.

My last B2MeM effort is live! You can read it here or here, if you happen to like the combination of cats and poetry.

I also completed an absolute masterpiece for Bad Bang. It is my first fanwork for a certain canon. Anyone who guesses what will get a Coke... all down their front.
