Columns of light -

"Trees on a Slope Kissed by Sunbeams"
manipulated digital drawing by Mick Mather
When it comes to my digital drawings, like this one, I feel lost somewhere along the road between mystification and understanding. The only way to get control of things is to work at it and work at it often. Since I don't do it often enough, this particular journey is likely to be a long one. Tonight's post is a piece that I rather like but I couldn't think of a title for it until today. It was suggested by the background music in a new game, called drifts, that has me hooked. It's simple melody is sweet, lilting, passive, gently falling down and if rays of light have a sound this would be it. I know that the only way to hear this looping little ditty is to start the game but, I warn you, don't play it! If you do, you'll learn that the black hole of time exists for real, right there in that little game. I MEAN IT!!! I'M WARNING YOU!!!

I tried the game, once, and got 0 points. But now I know where to find it! Tbe music is really falling down like your light.

Well, you're safe for now if you only got "0" points. Heed my warning , however, or your days will be lost!
