You know that when these title cards come up on screen, you’re in for a good old fashioned , and most certainly something else to whistle to for the next few days.

Hi, I’m Robin. I said something like this on one of my earlier, now mothballed accounts, but the community here on 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.

This was a great recommendation by @wabisabi and I recommend it to 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.

“Perhaps that you're searching far too much? That in all that searching, you don't find the time for finding?”

Well, I didn’t watch what I set out to watch tonight. I watch the 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.

Happy Friday, everyone. Let’s make this one a great day 💪🏽

It's too late to start a movie now. I have a few on my list to work through, including something completely different for tomorrow evening. Goodnight!

I re-watched the Eastwood classic 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.

Siddharta, by Hermann Hesse 

“Nothing was, nothing will be; everything is, everything has existence and is present.”

And then, I’ll have some fun doing some crude drawings by hand 😂

One more meeting today and then closing up shop for the day. 💯

Heard back from my potential tattoo artist. She asked for a sketch so I’m contemplating either hand drawing something or mocking something up on a graphics editor like Gimp or Inkscape.

I’ll probably go for the crude hand drawing and leave the artistry to the artist 😂

Time to put the headphones on and get to work 🎵

This morning’s coffee is good. Still, I feel like maybe a quick workout will give me the energy boost I’m looking for.

Siddharta, by Hermann Hesse 

I’m about halfway through this book now and it seems that every page contains something that just speaks to me on a different level. It’s an incredibly enjoyable book I have to say.

Siddharta, by Hermann Hesse 

“...but Siddharta looked upon all of this as if it was a game, the rules of which he tried hard to learn precisely, but the contents of which did not touch his heart.”

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.

Just called to book a consult for my first tat. Things are getting real
