As a parent to a 2.5 year old daughter (as of late 2018...) the concept of both being a parent and parenting are ever present and important for me:
Digital Art & Creativity
Creativity generally fascinates me, obviously, but the idea of digital creativity and digital art in particular is a thread I end up pulling on again and again.
Writer, designer, thinker, independent. I love Frank's writing and how deeply he thinks about the digital systems we inhabit. Oh and of course a great aesthetic.

>But the sea
which no one tends
is also a garden
[Asphodel, That Greeny Flower by William Carlos Williams](http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/asphodel-greeny-flower-excerpt)
>First, The fish needs to say, “Something ain’t right about this Camel ride – And I’m Feeling so damn Thirsty.”
>And we all say: OH!
Well I never!
Was there ever
A Cat so clever
As Magical Mr. Mistoffelees!
[Mr Mistophelees by TS Eliot](http://famouspoetsandpoems.com/poets/t__s__eliot/poems/15147)
>So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.
Whisper of running streams, and winter lightning.
[The Four Quartets by TS Eliot](http://www.coldbacon.com/poems/fq.html)
>In the summer
I stretch out on the shore
And think of you
Had I told the sea
What I felt for you,
It would have left its shores,
And followed me.
>But after a time allowed for it to swim,
Instead of proving human when it neared
And someone else additional to him,
As a great buck it powerfully appeared,
Pushing the crumpled water up ahead,
And landed pouring like a waterfall,
And stumbled through the rocks with horny tread,
And forced the underbrush--and that was all.

>We are, I am, you are
by cowardice or courage
the one who find our way
back to this scene
carrying a knife, a camera
a book of myths
our names do not appear.
