25 March 2020: Isolation is Good!


Since we’ve been asked to stay home I’ve had more time to work on automata…which has been wonderful.

I am fascinated as I watch the world cope with this pandemic.  It seems to me that there are two options:

  1. We could all simply ignore the virus and go about our lives.  Some of us (probably many of us) would get sick.  Some of us would die.  We would overload our medical establishment.  There would be pandemonium and chaos.
  2. We could attempt to minimize illness and death while vaccinations are being developed.  

As a society, we seem to have chosen #2.  In my mind, this is a wise thing.  While there will be damage to the economy worldwide it seems to be the preferable method.

In my case, I’m in my studio many more hours per week and I like this.

At this time I’m working on Surfer #1.  This is a “Two Week Challenge” project.  I challenged myself.  Bottom line…I’m appreciating this ‘quick’ automata build and hope to do more quick builds in the future.  You’ve got to stay on your toes.  You’ve got to think ahead.  There is not a lot of time to redo things.  

Anyway…try to stay healthy…as the world turns.
