Hi, I’m Robin. I said something like this on one of my earlier, now mothballed accounts, but the community here on #mastodon reminds me of being back on the bird site back in ‘08.
It may take a little more work to really get into it, but being on here feels fresh and worthwhile. Nice to meet you all.
I’ve finished the book “Siddharta,” by Hermann Hesse. I was reading this on my Kobo but enjoyed it so much I’ve ordered a physical copy to have as well.
There is beauty and divinity in all things but it’s not for any one person to teach or proclaim them. One must be open to finding this for themselves.

Thank you for your attention. Your effort makes the internet a better place.
Well, I didn’t watch what I set out to watch tonight. I watch the #Borat film instead. It had its moments, and I liked how it replaced Kazakhstan with a new global laughing stock. But the movie dragged at times. Still, it was worth the watch and made me laugh. Now, go vote.
I re-watched the Eastwood classic #EscapeFromAlcatraz last night. This was the Clint Eastwood/Don Siegel film about the real-life escape made by three inmates at Alcatraz in 1962.
This film was very well paced, had some edge-of-your-seat moments in the lead up to the escape, and just generally had a very understated yet powerful style of storytelling. I forgot how much I love this film and recommend it.
And then, I’ll have some fun doing some crude drawings by hand 😂
Update: I have not yet heard back, but I can wait. I'm not going to settle for another place that would do it quicker.
