Christmas Day

December 26, 2008

Hello there!  It’s Christmas day (or was about 26 minutes ago,) and I find it wonderful that God would grace us with so much real love in this world: with friends, and family, and all that is good.

So, in this simple, short, and sweet post I will give you a little Christmas graphic I made up in Inkscape recently.

Merry Christmas to all!

Oh, and by the way: tomorrow I may be filming a new film that I just came up with this evening.  It will involve nature, a creek, hopefully some music, me, and a narration.  Hope you enjoy it!  We’ll see how it goes.

And for now, God bless and best wishes to all!
May you find what you are truly looking for,

With much love,

What I want to say…

December 24, 2008

What I want to say, perhaps I should not.  Deep thoughts, high ideals, but the world does not want to hear it.  Perhaps I will become more bold in the future – perhaps?  But for now I hide much of what I believe and hold dear for fear of others shunning it, shunning me.  Perhaps I will take more seriously to my private journal, telling what I have within my heart there.

We are all marvolous.  All brilliant.  I fear we will never know it, though, unless we free ourselves.  Unless we let Jesus reign in our hearts.

Anyhow, a post everyday, so here’s the post.  More tomorrow?  Perhaps.

God bless!

P.S. Day 2 of this post writing escapade.

Now a BlenderNation.com editor…

November 19, 2008

Dear reader and friend,

Just recently a big goal of mine has been reached: I am now a BlenderNation.com editor!  Praise the Lord!  I will be submitting articles under the name “banor,” so be looking out for them! 😉  I greatly appreciate the warmth with which the other BlenderNation editors have greeted me!  (And a big thanks to Bart for letting me join the team!)

NaNoWriMo does not go so well, sadly.  I still only have some 14k+ words, and I need 50k by November 30, 11:59pm, about ten days from now… yikes.  If I am going to make this year’s goal I need to put my nose to the grindstone and get it done.

Been enjoying Playlist.com – very nice for listening to music! 🙂  Still need to check the legality of it.  Check out my playlist here.

Hoping to do some debating soon, with a friend at least.  There is so much to discuss, to decide.  Maybe we are too compliant, or maybe too argumentative and self-centered?

Ah, I love music.

I could tell so much more, but an online blog only yeilds so much privacy, so I will have to deter from family news, highly personal thoughts, etc.

Well, still looking forward to the future in some way… there is always something before me, I just need to reach out and grab it.

And for now, goodnight friend!  Thanks for listening,
Never give up.

P.S. A little background story on why this release is needed can be found here: http://www.blendernation.com/2008/10/22/yo-frankie-delay/

P.P.S. God is good… He is always good, nomatter what you or I face…

P.P.P.S. Looking forward to doing some “personal filming” sometime… my own music, you name it – the whole she-bang… hopefully…

P.P.P.P.S. A friend of mine told me about Owl City, an unsigned music artist.  Well, I started listening to it today (once I remembered,) and, lo-and-behold, I liked it!  That artist’s work is now the official “focus for listening” for October 23, 2008… in other words, that is the music group I focused on listening to today (on Playlist.com.)  Check out some of their music here. Wow, so inspiring… I could do my own MUSIC!!!! WHOOT!!! … or, JOIN A GROUP, or START A GROUP, or… SOMETHING!!! … 🙂  Maybe I’m crazy, but I love the idea, wow… I want to start… start soon. 😉

Need sleep, contemplating

October 22, 2008

Ever sit down and wonder about life?  Wonder what’s next, what the duties are that you must complete, and how you are to achieve those goals?  I do.

I wonder about the future, my life, who I am and who I will be.  I contemplate how I can better accomplish my goals, I consider what I am required to do, what I have volunteered for and what must be completed first.  And in all this, I wish and dream and wonder.

So here I am, a soul in the wind of time, seeking what I want to find and secretly knowing what I must end up resolving upon.

But, in a way I am encouraged.  Encouraged at who I am right now, and what the future might hold; what I can be now and tomorrow… the potential of a dreams fulfilled in full blossom.

And, then once again, I am here.  I am responsible for my actions, my ways, my thoughts and beliefs.  I must choose what I will do, I must choose what I will become, I must choose what to do with what is ahead.  Not that I must decide whether or not I want to be a soloist singer and songwriter, a 3D animator and CG designer, or a popular novel author, but that I must choose whether I will seek these dreams or God first.  Yes, God.

Just encouraged, hoping, wishing for the future, and hoping that it will all turn out as well as my dreams fortell… that my dreams will not turn into nightmares, and that in everything I do, I will first find God as my true friend.

Anyhow, that’s a taste from the waterspout.

God bless, friends!

P.S. Found out about a screenwriting template (someone told me about it,) for Open Office Writer.  I already use Celtx for my scriptwriting, but then again, what’s the harm of trying another possible software solution?  Here goes nothing… oh, btw, NaNoWriMo is slowly, but surely, approaching.  IT IS COMING! AHHHHHH! … >wanting to complete first novel, or at least get more progress on it before NaNoWriMo 08 starts< … a thought: what if I took all of my life as a NaNoWriMo?  Concentrating my efforts on one project at a time and completing it with the mindset that I will not leave it till my goal is reached… what then?  I might get really stressed out always living like that, but on the other hand, it’s possible I would complete my tasks much quicker… anyhow, but I believe it may call for a whole life-style change-over.  God bless! -b

P.P.S. Not exactly set on what we are going to do with “ITL” (“Is This Love?”) right now.  However, I hope to make some of my own, personal films sometime soon.  Nature clips set to music, thoughtful vid with voice over, crazy ideas and a mix of ketchup thrown in… anyhow, don’t know exactly, but hopefully I will make time for creating some personal films… complete with custom music!  God bless, -b

A prayer for filmmaking

September 21, 2008

Lord, please help me to be able to make films. Thank you for the grace you have allowed me and showing me how to get this far.

May the road ahead be brighter than the night behind, may the sun rise swiftly upon my weary face, may my soul be refreshed at the springs of justice, my hope renewed at the wells of mercy.

May my path be guided upon each turn I make, and may my feet find swiftly the road I am to take.

God bless me, my friends, and all those who want to be filmmakers.  May our journey be sweet and ushered upon the dirt paths to quiet victory, down the dales of February frost and early June flowers, to the river of conquest unto the sea of rest.

May the journey we choose be worth all our lives.

God, please hear our prayer, amen.
