What Is Taking So Long With MUDPIX MAGAZINE Issue #2 Getting Published?

Greetings MUDPIX fans!

I will keep this post as brief as possible.

Some of you may be wondering why it is taking me so long to finish editing MUDPIX MAGAZINE Issue #2, the 2nd digital photo ebook volume in my outdoor photography series.

I’ll just cut straight to the point and say it. I am lately having some digestive health issues due to kidney stones. It’s a very painful experience, and so while I’m dealing with it, the last thing I want to do is labor over my laptop writing and placing photos into the pdf.

I need to take some time to think about and give some personal care to my health to try and get better.

I will try to motivate myself to do some work on #2 on days that I’m not dieing from pain, but my ultimate plan for the next month is to focus on me. This will include not just trying to get healthier, but taking a relaxed mode in life and do some reading.

That’s it. I will continue posting updates on my website here at mudpix.com as well as Twitter.

As for Instagram I’m not sure what updates I may post over the next few weeks.

Most, if not all, of the parks on West Point Lake are currently shut down due to the coronavirus panic going on. Maybe that’s a sign that I really need to slow down for awhile, but those who know me will know not being able to make my day trips to the lake will really be a bummer for me. Oh well no matter what, gotta think positive thoughts.

See you back on this blog soon.

Offsite At Ransom Note

Ransom Note at www.ransomnote.com is an online music, arts and culture magazine I discovered on Saturday, January 11th, 2020 when I was trying to find a Discogs image on Google to use for my Discogs list. The list below links to some of my favorite articles on the site, or just ones I thought you the viewer may want to check out. This list was started on Saturday, January 11th, 2020 and is maintained for the love of music. Dates at the end of each listing are timestamps for when I added the listings to this list (because I’m a sucker for timestamps). This list will be updated frequently with new article links including dj mixes I discovered are on the site. I haven’t had much time to fully explore Ranson Note so I need more time to dig into it’s content to make this a great list.

Discogs is a music database listing discographies of all labels, all artists, all cross-referenced, and is also a marketplace for music collectors.

The list below links to some of my favorite artists, or some that have been added for discovery. This list was started on Saturday, January 11th, 2020 and is maintained for the love of music. Dates at the end of each listing are timestamps for when I added the listings to this list (because I’m a sucker for timestamps). This list will be updated frequently with artists from many genres of music.
