Ursula LeGuin has passed away
I was saddened to hear that another one of the iconic authors of my younger days passed away this last week. I’m not sure which of her works I read first, but her breadth of material and depth of content made her work stand out. She tackled difficult subjects in engaging forms provoking growth in her readers while they enjoyed her tales.
She was equally comfortable writing fantasy, science fiction and main stream prose.
I’m currently re-reading some of her shorter science fiction works in memory of her passing. Sad to see another amazing voice passed from this world…
Holidays are over…
The holidays are over and we’re into the cold and dark part of the year.
I got less technical stuff done over the week off than I had hoped but I think I worked through a few issues that needed to be dealt with. Expecting to move out on a number of fronts with the new year.
I’m going to try to post more regularly here in the coming year and improve my web presence going forward.
