Hey guys, Donald here.
In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.
But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?
Development updates from Twitter:
The purest cloud goes drifting by
Amid a sea of tender blue,
But yet the air is frozen still
And oaken limbs are barren too,
Despite the cold the cloud on high
Now floats along with strongest will,
Enduring thoughts thus therein lie
Where verdant summer mem’ries grew,
The warmth and breeze of summer fill
The cloud with peace and calmness new,
And so the dreams of sweet July
Shall bear away the winter chill,
For nothing’s ever truly gone
When memories and dreams live on.
