And yes, I just noticed the typo. 😆
@welshpixie Yeah, it was a dick this morning. 4/6 but it took cooking an entire sausage and egg butty to work it out.
36 hour fast done, my first long #fast since Xmas. That was hard, way harder than the previous 40+ hours I've done. Broke it with asparagus, bacon, eggs and seeded sourdough. I have a cracking headache, even though I stayed fully hydrated and supplemented missing minerals.
I think I'll aim for max. 36 hours Thursday night to Saturday morning from now on, as well as my daily 16-18 hours. Having a breakfast is a treat and I've been mindfully eating (with birbcam on the TV!)
@Gina Part of my painting station. It's a bit trickier at my age than back as a teenager in the '80s, but luckily for me, Santa brought me some magnifying glasses this year which I can wear to zoom in on details. 😂
@welshpixie Not the vibe I'm looking for but still very cool, I like them a lot. Getting a kind of Dune-esque ornithopter vibe from them.
I might get back to you on the mandala side of things at some point. My game's early space colonist faction have a Buddhist/Hindu theme to them so it's not inconceivable. Whilst the game is a work of love and I don't intend to profit from it I, y'know, want to pay any artists that contribute to it. And better fediverse artists than Getty, right?
@welshpixie Cheers! I don't suppose you have "hard sci-fi concept art" on your CV of artistic expertise do you?
I've been #writing. A lot. I've finished the rules for my hard sci-fi #RPG (think Neill Blomkamp meets The Expanse) and I'm on to the fluff now. I just finished three days of work on the timeline, it needs a few gaps filling in and some editing now, before adding to the layout. It's. Hard. Work. But I'm making fantastic progress. Soon I'll be moving on to playtesting and sourcing some paid art (maybe with the help of the fediverse). 2022, here I come.
@fasciation Thank you and no problem, even if it is just me and you most of the time. 😂 Best wishes for the New Year.
@sexybiggetje I'm not sure we ever find a purpose in life, but we can certainly steer ourselves in the right direction. I'm 49 in a week's time and I still don't "get it", but I've learned a lot about myself and my place in the universe in the last decade.
For me, it's about living life simply and well. Establishing personal boundaries, removing the noise and complexity from my environment and, a little at a time, my path became clearer. And the most difficult thing? Learning self-love.
