      Thank you. Time to do some necroing then
      And I'll be sure not to blame you if something happens.

      I have material for more than 10 post a day, but sadly I can't do that, because I have Fingers Osteoarthritis and Tennis Elbow syndrome so most of the time I'm suffering from pain and numbness

      And yeah forums are dying for good or worse

I keep trying to think of some fun thread I could make so that lots of people get active again and stop lurking, but I just have nothing to say. I always find these hundreds of threads which are awesome, but like 1-17 years old, and I'd like to reply, but I know that it would probably be bad since it's very necroing and I likely wouldn't get an answer anyway. Definitely not from the original authors, though. If I do get any reply, it'd be like 1-2 replies from the few remaining people on this forum. It's sad.
      From my point of view all communities and more specifically, online communities, around niche or very specific subjects (such as obscure or old games as different examples) seem to go through cycles of being incredibly active to incredibly inactive; most of these forums also tend to be pretty permissive around necroing threads for the purposes of actually reviving them or keeping content consolidated. I think over time people with any kind of common sense end up dreading forums that are filled with repeat threads on identical subjects with little or no variation (thus preferring more the longer/consolidated topics).

      I too wish there was more interaction on some threads but that's just the way things seem to be... Even as I alluded to in my rant previously (and thank you for the feedback MoonageDaydream ), I wish I got more interaction from people who follow my art, but realistically people might not have much to say even if they like what I'm doing/saying. It's difficult to make something compelling for others to really want to participate and especially in constructive ways. Also it's worth considering that some people may not feel the confidence to participate. I myself sometimes do not post, comment, whatever in certain topics (here and in other sites) either because I feel I may come across as short or confrontational or simply because I might not have any useful input for someone else's content/thread.

      It can be good to put your thoughts out there because even if there isn't a reply or interest immediately, there may be later and at least then the subject has already been brought up, or in the case reviving an old thread, a fresher input/perspective is there for some contrast and for others to think about too.

      Edit: I just wanted to add that I always believed that getting people to engage is also made easier by us ourselves participating more, because people are less likely to consider things "dead" and actually want to join in too.

      Rant: Feel like crap. Been sick almost all of the weekend. I have a slight fever right now. Busy and now sick... Bla!

      Rave: So glad to hear that people are having success with lucid dreaming. You guys always have had that power within you all this time.

      Rant: Had this dream project going since about 22 JUL. Seven tasks in the set. Accomplished 5 and 7 within one week. After struggling for 1.5 more weeks; managed to achieve Task 4. My brain now will not cooperate and I am going stir crazy trying to get the remaining dream tasks done (1, 2, 3 and 6). Last night in a dream, I 'wrote down' one of the tasks I had to do... Brain! Writing a task is not actually doing it! Please cooperate with me and give me some results or at least some progress tonight! Rant done.

      Rave: So happy today. Just got my new schedule for upcoming school year (starts in 2 days). I am NOT with the two teachers who are.. um, let's say.. "difficult" anymore, and I DO get to be my best bud's support teacher again, in addition to supporting several other friends. Only awesome people to work with! And I only have to teach 2 small ESE classes, unlike last year, where they slammed me with a regular class on top of everything else. So this year should be amazing, I am so excited and happy!

      Starting virtual, so that's nice. I should be able to keep doing the LD practice (in addition to not dying from covid )

      I hate how school starts again tomorrow. Firstly, I am possibly in the risk group for covid since I have diabetes mellitus, which is an autoimmune disease, but nobody really cares about that. We're in a classroom in which it is impossible to really be able to hold the safety distance, but nobody cares about that, either. I hope I won't die because of idiots with power who put education over health.

      I also hate how I have to meet my super manipulative friend whom I haven't contacted for 6 weeks tomorrow, and I just have to hope I can say control him now, otherwise he's going to drive me insane again until I have the next opportunity to not contact him. He's going to be so mad...

      Also, I have the fan for the fume hood now, but I am missing a fitting plug so I can't enable it.

      Also, I hate how I can't keep up my awareness like I did 4 days ago, after which I had my first lucid dream in years, and the day after that as well. I can't remember to reality check often (which also reminds me to be aware).

      Long mix of both rant and rave:
      Feel like I haven't been able to be very productive at all over the last two days but they'd both been quite busy days otherwise, today especially so since it was mostly a social day. It was good for some of what's been going on but in the end I just wish I had done more of what I wanted to do and less of what I needed to, feeling somewhat frustrated at the lack of new ideas at the very least but mostly annoyed by not having the opportunity to spend time on some projects that I started a week or two ago.

      I want to do work stuff in the mornings lately but just find myself too tired usually because of how busy we've been and how my medication cycles are meshing with each day's flow.

      On the dream front I am feeling happy that I have managed to keep my journaling fairly consistent over the last few months in one form or another and feel especially good about my most recent lucid dream, though as always I find my mind easily wandering back to how a large part of my body's sleep quality issues and factors are ultimately outside my full control and how this feels likely to affect my lucidity rate, even though I know I shouldn't let myself believe such a simplistic view of the matter. In addition to that, DJing still feels a bit time consuming, though this isn't putting me off as much as it used to, possibly in part because of the more recent medication stuff.

      Lately, most of my current dream-related frustrations have been around the fact I've been wanting to do a bit more WBTB in the early morning, especially since I've always known it to be one of the most effective techniques for me but it has proven difficult either because of time schedules, being sensitive about waking/disturbing my partner's sleep or crap going on outside our house, most of which wouldn't really bother me if it weren't for the noise that I can't seem to be able to tune out of lately. On the other hand too, I have been having more pre-lucid moments regardless, and more dream moments about... well, dreaming, which I do take as a sign that my mind is working more with "me" in terms of conscious intraconnections.

      Woke up with flaring sciatica today. Probably because I've been stuck with my feet up healing from the injury I had last week. Ugh. I just want to be able to run again. And join a yoga class. Not the best of days. But I'll pull through

      Feel better!

      Went walking in the woods yesterday to blow off some steam when I saw a pheasant. I didn't have my camera, wish I did. Did an RC instead.
      Yesterday you asked me if I was fine. I'm okay. Misunderstandings happen, it's apart of life. I have bigger things to deal with in my personal life right now.

      Anyways, I had two lucids last night.

      I was having particularly bad issues with my left leg for no special reason, for months; hope the recovery from the injury goes well for you. We always want to do the things we can't and it takes a lot of strength in low moods to really be able to remind ourselves that it's fine to not be able to do those things too.

      I wish I was living somewhere more remote at the moment for that reason (walking something off). Where I live now in some senses isn't too different from where I grew up, but it feels much less appealing to go outside for this purpose; like I can't have room to be somewhere kind of alone. I hadn't actually given this much thought until now, so thank you for the unintentional perspective.

      Hope your lucids were fun or illuminating in some sense.



      Mini-rant: Annoyed by the gloomy weather; frustrated by tiredness and by stuff relating to my art. Overall melancholic about the nature of art and the lack of connectivity with others on the subject.

      Mini-rave: Happy to still be learning things about food (cooking/baking/etc), happy looking back on my recent progress in terms of art, appreciating how it seems I've been able to improve a little bit faster by putting more work in.

      You're welcome. If it makes you feel better, It's only when I can get out and walk around in the woods. There are other times I feel like I have no privacy.
      It's a bit dry here so it puts a damper on our Foraging. At least we have some Red Reishi so we can make some tea.
      It's nice outside here, today. Actually, pretty cool here. I've been a bit busier than usual, lately with the work/ family stuff that I still have to do. I barely have time for anything else. I haven't been able to focus on Task Of The Month tasks, lately either. I wonder if people are still interested in it? At the least, the personal project that I'm working on is going good and strong.
      I'm definitely in a better mood then I was earlier this week. Or at least for a moment. But, I still want this week to be over. Ugh!
      Apparently, we will have a blue moon in October. The first and the last day.

      Oh, and other news... Apparently, there is an 1% chance an asteroid is on a trajectory to hit the United States of America on November 2, 2020. Whether that is true or not, perhaps it's time to put the petty crap behind(IMO)

      Rave: Had a awesome lucid last night.

      I don't remember the details too well but I do recall in the late 90s I read some science editorial/magazine that my dad would get as part of a subscription and the main article of focus on some publication was that by 2040 or 2050 some fairly large meteor could possibly fall somewhere in North America.



      Mini-rant: Got a bad head today and feel a bit out of it overall. Feel like I haven't really done stuff I wanted to do today, but I guess it's Sunday anyway at least... There was something else bothering me but because of my head I can't even remember what it was.

      Mini-rave: On the other hand, some jam we made yesterday turned out quite nice, better than I thought it would.

      Jam? What kind?

      --------
      Rave: We are getting rain here, which is good because of the dry conditions. We are under a warning here.
      Rant: We have a broken dyer and we need to a wash and it's storming. Just our luck!!

      Nothing special, typically we just get some fruit that's marked for reductions at the supermarket; we made a raspberry/strawberry mixed jam this time. But I've also been trying to make jam with other fruits, like banana, mango and even some fuchsia berries (from our yard actually) and looking to try other things too but not in a rush to do it. Mixed results on those, though the banana works quite well (I should add my partner finds it sickly sweet, most people might). Mango seems to be a bit too fibrous and so just turns into a sort of candied fruit? Maybe would work better if I made it into smaller pieces...

      Now I'm thinking of food and cooking in general...



      Eventually got over my headache from before, an hour or so ago, but really didn't get anything done that I wanted to do today, even if it was Sunday. Days that don't go like planned/hoped are normal for me but I think today I just ended up getting a bit more focused on it and feeling disappointed since I didn't feel able to do anything recreational either.

      michael79, people drop in and out of things all the time though. And more on the same sentiment, sometimes I am checking on DV and other sites and nothing is happening at all and it feels annoying (especially if I'm trying to participate too), but on the other hand I probably have more time than most people.

      Rant: Feeling slightly frustrated about lots of little things, but all usual stuff...

      Feeling super excited and happy today. The district has mandated that science teachers have to do one virtual lab/demonstration a week, which is kind of a lot to ask!! Word from last night is that they are expanding that to include "experiences" such as nature walks, etc.

      Time for some virtual field trips! This is going to be fun.

      Also, my leg and knees have healed fantastically, they're still red but, I can run again, and I'm back to my old self

      Just found out that one of my cousin who had cancer when he was very younger, is coming back.

      Angry COVID Season Drivers Are the Worst!

      I swear people here in New Hampshire are driving more reckless than ever. They must think that cops won't pull them over out of fear of catching COVID from them.

      Not sure what this is. Mix of feelings maybe.

      I've not really been feeling motivated to work on my usual art projects, instead I've been working on a story/setting I've had in mind and tried writing out several times over the years always feeling like I was muddling on and didn't really know what I wanted to do with it exactly, but this time I'm starting nearly completely from scratch with a much clearer end-goal. My issue had always been I'd never felt a connection with my characters. This time it's a bit different because the main character was one I already have for something else.

      In only two days I've written almost ten thousand words and even so feel like it's barely started, and at the same time I'm not eager to keep pouring in ideas without getting some friends to read parts of the story for feedback... But this is all annoying me slightly since I also want to work on my usual art stuff and just not feeling the motivation to do it.

      I don't really get creative blocks (but never say never ) and when I do, I usually do get over them fairly quick. But I do get these "it's not grabbing me" periods. I don't think it's something that can be helped. Just wanted to vent about it I guess.
      Singled out from some of my favourite quotes from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri: "Risks of [Planet] flowering: considerable. But rewards of godhood: who can measure? - Usurper Judaa'Maar: Courage: to question."

      I'm having fun playing with epoxy resin, making my baby sand dollar collection into durable earrings. Also making my serpentine rocks safe by locking in any asbestos. I get the sand dollars from a very special place, an island called Cayo Costa... only place I've ever found baby sand dollars whole like that (already dead of course).

      Kind of felt bad, I just gave you a sad face and then talked about how awesome I'm feeling right now. I'm really sorry that your cousin is sick. I sure hope things get better for your family.

      I think you're doing the right thing by following your feelings here. You're going with the flow of a new project, rather than resisting and forcing yourself to do something you're not feeling right now. I think creativity works best with freedom and space, rather than force and obligation. And you know, you will go back to your art. Right now, you may not know it, but ideas are brewing in your subconscious, and will present themselves when they are ready Or at least that's my crazy theory
