    I have been giving this some thought and what with my progress slowed drastically, I feel this is better both on a strategic and professional level.

    Struggling With Balancing Ideas Lately

    You ever get the feeling that you've got a dozen or so ideas floating around your head but you haven't the time to get any of it down?

    I've been feeling like that for a while.

    Raya And The Last Dragon Has Done Itself Proud!

    I recommend you watch it if cinemas are open and safe where you are.
    If not, look for it on DVD or Disney Plus if you have it.
    I firmly believe that Kelly Marie Tran deserves a break and it's wonderful to see her as this year's Disney Princess.

    My (Partial) Thoughts On The Witches 2020 And Some Shameful Confessions

    So...I've been hearing a bit about The Witches 2020 produced by Netflix. Apparently it's one of many things just about everyone on Youtube is saying is the 'Worst Thing Evah' and 'Ruins The Original' and various other rants that somehow make the creators feel like they've achieved something.

    Now, I am something of an Anne Hathaway fan, mostly for her work in 2002's Nicholas Nickleby.

    Words for Christmas 2020 from a Positive-Minded Person

    Hello everyone. Happy Holidays.
    This year has been a strange one with many unusual trials and tribulations. While in some ways I'm glad it's over and that hope is in sight, believe it or not, I don't think year has been all bad.
    Not just for me at any rate. And certainly not the worst year in history many have been saying it is.

Words for Christmas 2020 from a Positive-Minded Person · 5:11pm Dec 25th, 2020

Hello everyone. Happy Holidays.
This year has been a strange one with many unusual trials and tribulations. While in some ways I'm glad it's over and that hope is in sight, believe it or not, I don't think year has been all bad.
Not just for me at any rate. And certainly not the worst year in history many have been saying it is.

I do feel that too much negativity can damage a society at large and negativity seems all too common.
People are scared and you can't expect too much sense out of them when they're scared (Terry Pratchett said that) but reason, perspective and effort are key to dealing with any crisis, personal or otherwise.

For now, though, what matters today on this year is much like any other year on this particular day; finding a way to stay by those you love, even indirectly, make sure they know how much you mean to them and remind yourselves that you are together whatever happens.

News has gone on about politicians making blunders or celebrities disgracing themselves. But that is a small percentage of humanity at large and humanity has prevailed. Disaster, terror, prejudice, unrest and uncertainty. All of these things and more have buffeted us and people have spoken of apocalypse and the end of society but what do I see today?

I see a pink clouds in a winter's sky. I see lights of many colours shining in and out of people's windows. I see frost on glass and stone and mist in one's breath. I see people passing by as I take my daily walk and I hear 'Merry Christmas'.

If 2020 marked the end, it certainly doesn't look like it.

Perspective is the gift humanity gives itself.

Use it well this year and the next.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
