Well into Fall now, the trees have all turned and the temps have dropped. Soup and chilli is the order of the day.

I had one conference this week on digital collections in Ohio, and tomorrow is Academic Library Association of Ohio’s yearly conference. Lots of networking and learning this week. Next week begins several weeks of intensively scheduled instruction sessions. Busy times at the college.

I’m doing a lot more drawing and writing lately, as well. Stories for the pictures and pictures for the stories. Nothing complete, just bits of inspiration to get me started. Enjoying it thoroughly. Also learned to use air airbrush to prime miniatures this week. Now to find time to paint them.

In books, I’m still working on Embrace Your Weird (Felicia Day) took a break from Grave Peril (Jim Butcher) because Over the Top (Jonathan Van Ness) came in from the library. I’m behind in my comics because life and creating. 🙂

Ursula K. Le Guin died this week. And I realized, I’ve never read any of her books. I cataloged some of hers this week, though. So, many artists live in obscurity, and though she did not, I know I should take the time to appreciate more of them than I do.

OhioDIG meeting on the DPLA and the ODN was good yesterday. I talked to a couple new people about their projects. And I got to see the really nice large-object scanner at the State Library. It’s something like This One, but the table is Way Bigger. Waiting to hear back from an interview I had later in the day, as well.

Working all weekend, so a quiet one. Might finish my paint-by-number. If so, I’ll post it.

This week, I’ve listened to Death Masks, again. Tomorrow, I’ll probably do a bit more Mists. Everything else I want is on the Holds list.
