Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art
There are three "categories" that I consider encapsulate fractal art as a whole:
- Fractals as "objects" that can be "photographed."
- Fractals as "brushes" that paint and shape various sections of the fractal.
- Fractals as "paint."
About helping othersIt has recently come to my attention that some people just don't know how to respond to requests from others for help. I have always offered help to those I can when asked. I've never ignored a request for help. I do ask that a question is specific in nature. But overall, I answer every question I can to the best of my abilities.More Like This
So if you're going to act like you know something, and answer questions from people, you had better be prepared to answer a bunch of questions and have a bit of patience. Many times one question leads to another, and another after that. Or once you help with one question, that person may then turn to you and ask different questions. So be prepared for that. If someone is asking you for advice, they obviously think you have more knowledge that might help them. If you can't take the time for follow up questions, or just don't want to be bothered by questions that you 'think' are too obvious or simple for you to respond to, then you have no business helping someo
March is HereSing me a song, little mocker,More Like This
Sing me a song about spring.
Lift up your head, ruffle your feathers,
And flutter your white-striped wings.
I'll sit on a bench, and you'll perch on the branch,
And I'll trade you a story for seed.
Sing about sunshine, sing about flowers,
Tell me the mockingbird's creed.
Tell me of bluebonnets, coating the hills
With a carpet of proud, vibrant blooms -
I'll tell you of traffic on I-35
With rush hours starting at noon.
I'll sing you a song about cold buzzing lights,
Life sleepless and stressful and dull.
Your chirping is silenced by our modern life,
Where spring doesn't play much a role,
Where hills are a nuisance and sun is a threat,
Where bluebonnets get in the way.
You perch on your branch and the people pass by,
Too busy to care what you say.
Mockingbird, please, don't you copy this song.
It's an ugly industrial thing.
Teach me to flutter and ruffle and perch.
Teach me your songs about spring.
