The Power of the 14th

(It's that big month again! One year ago I got engaged, in less than half a year I'll be wed- yikes! In a good way.)

Welcome to all new Blender Readers, hope you'll click on through and find something that speaks to you.

At the risk of being accused of shameless self-promotion, if you haven't already, you might enjoy checking out, a daily weblog I've started. I think it has some of the same spirit of the early 'Blender.

Anyway, this month's Ramble is courtesy of Galadrial and you should check out the full version of the top of the page quote
