sleepy, dreamstate

1993 part 1; Fandoms

I'm breaking 1993 into parts, because I really took off in 1993. I mean, I'm still only showing off a teensy percentage of what I did, but I filled up a stack of sketchbooks about 10 inches high in '93 alone. I did the same in 1994, but I like more of those, so '94 may have three or more parts. It tapers off after that, because I did more time-intensive, finished pieces after that. Hold onto your pants, this gets long.

1993, part 2; The Business.

In 1993, I was in a car accident and broke my back. That's far, far less impressive than it sounds. My fifth lumbar was fractured compressively, things got a little squished, but everything that happened was below the main spinal cord bits. Or something - I always liked physics better than biology. Biology is squishy and random. Physics is logical. And only occasionally random. At any rate, I can still usually go hiking and canoeing and stuff if someone strong enough to pick up some of my slack is along. It's not that big of a deal in the scope of things, but you can't deny something like that doesn't change you.

For me, it was a seize the day kind of revelation. (Once I got past a good bout of self-pity and despair, of course. I wrote dark poetry and am thankful all over again that I wasn't on the Internet then.)
