Clock Work

I have a fascination with “time”. At times, when things are going slow, tedious, you are impatient, or perhaps things are just dull, time can feel like it’s going soooo slow. 30 minutes can feel like an eternity!

Nancy’s Wardrobe

Over the weekend I impersonated a spy….or someone…stole a sapphire and bugged a pigeon. As in fed the pigeon a tracking device. If you guessed correctly, you’d know I’ve been playing The Phantom of Venice. The game, as well as some projects I’ve been working along with some snooping through art files here in the […]
