The logbook of CMDR Sakeel continues.

There’s an abundance of choice out here. At times it can seem overwhelming, and the consequences can be rewarding, debilitating, or deadly. Billions of stars circling a massive center, and each other, the majority of them offering up something to do. Smeared out across a tiny section of those billions of stars, people carry around and evangelize their many varied designs, compounding the possible choices. In a single populated center, there’s enough to do for a full-time job. The simple surface of a choice belies the complexity and the absurdity beneath. And there you are, stuck with the choice you’ve made.
The first post for my Elite: Dangerous logbook is up. Follow the adventures of CMDR Sakeel…

The Void. Cold, black, vacuous emptiness.
Probably the most common terms used to describe what’s out here. Strange terms to use, when you think about it. Seems like reaching for some romantic description of space, which is a weird word anyway, a word whose mere definition is just plain intimidating. Something that isn’t a thing, so immense that it can’t even be measured accurately, stretching out in every direction (or contracting, who knows). In our attempts to understand it we had to call it something. So we came up with space. Makes sense, I guess, since there’s a lot of it in it, and it can kinda mess with your head.
Another year, another approach at a new website. Granted, this one was inspired partly by the accidental deletion of my previous site (a misunderstanding of how the WordPress install script on my server functioned), but also due to something of a realization of myself and how I’m evolving as a creative individual.
Always repeating, slowly evolving.
I’ve set up the my primary domain, 102010.org, to serve as something of a landing page now. It sat unused for too many years. Each of my projects will be listed there, and direct visitors to each project’s individual sub-domain. The Sakeel sub-domain will remain my personal weblog for announcements and whatnot.
Much like evolution, this is all a work in progress. At this point I hope that I’ve repeated enough, changed, and repeated again, to have evolved into something with better habits so as to regularly produce and share my creative efforts.
Onward from the primordial sludge!
