This past week has two designs in the making. I’m modeling a ring based on Maquizcoatl, the double-headed serpent from Aztec folklore; and a pendant, designed from the maquahuitl. Time seems to be passing faster and faster as I look at the calendar weeks whizzing by and I could swear the work week feels like it’s three days long by the time the next weekend arrives. I wish I could get these models done in a week but I have about a dozen left to make.

I seriously misjudged the time frame for learning the organic design software. I thought it might take no more than six weeks to learn but I fear it looks more like six months. Not good. It starts and stops due to the many other things that need attention. It chafes me that I’m taken away from the fantasy modeling because of this and have been diverted to designing other things. Most of the designs seen on the webpages are things I like, and a few are suggestions from the crew. I hope at least some of them are interesting to my readers. As always comments are welcomed and appreciated, whether positive or negative.

I have decided to concentrate, as much as is possible, on one area of business at a time,
although anyone that’s developed a startup business will tell you that so many things run
concurrently it’s impossible to put everything aside at any given moment. Please bear with us as we try to beat the clock.

Quote of the week:

“Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week”.
