It has been quite a while, yet again, since my last update. In the extremely long gap in posts, much has changed. I have moved from the DC/Baltimore area to the San Francisco Bay area. The road trip was quite the adventure with stops in various areas, though there never seems to be enough time to see it all. Upon arriving in the Bay Area, I had reclaimed much of the feelings of creativity that had been stifled in some form or fashion back east, so I quickly got to work making music, editing video, taking and editing pictures, being as creative as I felt at any given time…. but… unfortunately, along my adventure my exquisite laptop, a Lenovo Yoga 13 (I loved that machine), was stolen. I was heartbroken to say the least. All of the creativity I had pent up and finally was releasing and that was stored on that very laptop, was gone. I must say that I *normally* back everything up religiously, BUT at that point and time, I had not been at a stable location to do such a thing so all I had done since moving West is now gone. In spite of that loss, I have not given up. I can’t let the creativity out via digital means so easily anymore, at least, not until I get a new portable machine. I can, however, use a desktop machine once in a while – all be it 5 hours away from where I currently rest my head most of the time, but hey… it’s growth. Learning lessons and meeting people and building up more creative juices that I can hopefully let loose once again. I do find some additional drive to get things done without having my usual tool around, an emphasis on doing what I can.
In my down time I’ve found that I typically don’t publicly post my creations. I find that odd. I have done so much in graphics, photography, music, video editing, etc. and none of it is out there. I’ve decided I should start sharing. After all, why else would I bother making them? I will start uploading some of my digital art to my DeviatArt account located at http://mrslickshoes.deviantart.com/gallery/ and my video works and collaborations are usually on my page at http://www.ProsenseProductions.com . I shall look around the web and try to consolidate what I find as well as scour my old hdds and computers for my other existing works and start adding music to my soundcloud page here https://soundcloud.com/jphiggs . It’s time to let some stuff out, it’s time to share *just give me some time to start getting it out there*
