Still not dead, just sick... and busy
Picked up a nasty virus while traveling on business a couple of weeks ago. Thought I was getting better as of last week, then yesterday it all fell apart again. Not sure if I picked up a new bug, or if this is a resurgence of the previous one. Either way, I...

Starting a New Sport/Hobby/Thing
I'm learning how to sword-fight, European style! I joined a club in my area recently, the Rocky Mountain Swordplay Guild , which is a group that studies and practices the actual training and fighting techniques described in Fiore dei Liberi's book Fior di B...

Back to work Monday
Well, I've had a two-week vacation from the office, but now it's time to get back to work. Actually, I did do a few hours of work this past week, but I was technically still on vacation and not going in to the office, even though I was watching email. But M...

Oops, I Missed It!
Merry belated Christmas! Spent a nice day with family yesterday, and went to see Star Wars (2nd time) last night. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit and look forward to the next one. 2016 is already shaping up to be a busy and interesting year. Time will tell....

Elefdar Alphabet, Continued
Thought I'd post a few pics of the playing around with letter-forms that I've been doing. This is about the tenth version of the alphabet that I've created over the years, and definitely the one I like best. Next to each glyph is the letter or pair of lette...

Elefdar Alphabet
In addition to creating a language for the Elefdar, I am also working on an alphabet for them. It's gone through many iterations over the past twenty-odd years, but I think I've finally settled on a set of glyphs that I'm happy with. They have the look and ...

Publishing the Elefdar Language
A reader recently pointed me to Penflip , a website for collaborative writing. After reviewing the functionality of the site, I went ahead and created an account, and have now added my first writing project: The Elefdar (Elvish) Language . This is based on ...

The Elefdar Language
I've been playing some more with the Elefdar tongue. Not so much with the language itself, but rather the alphabet I had designed for it something like 20 years ago. Hard to believe it's been that long, but it really was the mid-1990s when I first created t...
