  • 09:26:24: No sun. Need to make bread. Want to write instead. Arvid and Dattur meet woods-folk. Urban Arvid is up to neck in ick, as he sees it.
  • 13:52:41: Stock is in freezer, except the amount in the pot that now has beef, tomatoes, green chilis, black beans, onions and garlic in it.
  • 19:24:43: Eating the soup. Oh...my. I am now ashamed of soups I made years back and considered just fine. Every one is a little different.
  • 22:42:38: When I skip making bread for a week or two, the first loaf out of the next batch disappears in a flash.
  • 22:59:40: New post up at http://www.paksworld.com/blog/ Arvid continues to stride boldly into trouble.

Writer's Block: Arts v. smarts

Given the choice, would you prefer to be a world-class (visual or performing) artist or an intellectual genius? Which, in your opinion, would facilitate a more fulfilling career and social life?

Yes.  And yes.  As in, why not an intellectual genius painter or violinist?   And why not include all creative arts (speaking as a writer.)    There's no inherent contradiction between intellectual and creative gifts--they often exist together.
