Jake woke up slowly.

He did not know where he was.

He could barely remember what had happened: he had been stalking a fly but then there was an owl… and a cat? He got knocked down, that’s for sure.

The little chameleon looked around him, first with his one eye, then with the other. He was inside a cottage of some sort, warm and cosy and not too bright. A girl walked in with a mealworm pinched between her fingers. She walked up to Jake and said in a soothing tone “Hey, little guy! Are you hungry yet?”

A chameleon and a girl

If you find you must travel (for work purposes, or to visit a distant relative who just had a baby and your wife insists on delivering the hand-knitted socks herself) there are certain, very important things to keep in mind.

The girl stared out the window. Well, she could hardly be called a girl anymore. She recalled, many decades ago, wishing that she were an adult. Her mother had replied “No, you don’t.”

Eventually the girl’s wish was granted. She got married and raised three beautiful children. Now, her long hair was thinning and required chemicals to maintain its dark colour.

By no accounts was she still a girl. She was a woman. And yet, she always had a thought: “One day, when I am all grown up, I will know what I want to do with my life.”

My new graphics tablet arrived last week: a Wacom Bamboo Fun. We decided on it for various reasons, the chief being we could order it immediately. Although I would have loved a Cintiq, it is just too expensive for us right now.

Bundled with the Bamboo was some software. Corel Painter 4 Essentials is one of them. I had lots of fun playing with it. As you can see.

That's me
