Bill Dickson has gone one full year between blog posts.
When I first met Bill, he told me he wanted to be a writer. A very great man, James D. Howze, who was an Art Professor of mine, (who I studied 2D drawing under my Freshman year) once told me you create ART by making marks on paper. So Bill, I suggest you start banging your keyboard.
You are a far better writer than I could ever be Bill. Start writing again!
