I’ve scribbled down a new score, another Irish tune that I like a lot. This one is called “Partick’s Reel”, and I can play it reasonably fine. Not fine enough to record it, though, but I’m getting there, and for now you can enjoy the sheet music.
I’ve got a lovely new art, that finishes my “four seasons” cycle—one artwork of me in Spring, Fall, Winter, and now, Spring. Let me share some insider details with you!

My second birthday is coming up in a week, it’s a good time to make a summary of things done and plans for the next twelve months.

How would one explain what are they? How is it to justify your own existence? The question “what is a tulpa” was raised numerous times on the dedicated forums, chats and newsgroups; people author scientific papers about them. Thousands of words written to explain the phenomena.
