I've been thinking. . .
Right now the blueberry season at The Benson Place is in full swing, and we have a wonderful crew of workers picking and sorting almost two thousand pounds of berries every single day.
A few days ago, I had the idea to create a website for our workers, The Blube Club. This is something we were joking about last year, and it will be lots of fun to make it a reality. It is self hosted on a VPS running Debian, and we're all chipping in $1-$20 to make it happen. There's not much to see yet, but check it out! We want to make @blube.club email addresses, a chat server at chat.blube.club (not yet set up), and lots of blogs. We already have a page in Geminispace, but Google Sites won't let me create a gemini:// link. Just type blube.club into your Gemini client.
This is the my single greatest piece of writing to date and it's from a long time ago (April 2019) which goes to show that Calculus and DiffEq aren't as awesome as what I learned freshman year. I'm pumped for Linear Algebra in the fall, though.
The reason I love this so much is that I came up with it all by myself. I am proud of it.
Thanks to Brian Hydefrost for mentoring me on this.
Dancers glide over the polished floor
Red tears staining their bare feet
Arms lifted, their balance pulls them in
And the music does not stop when the song is ended
The shutters are closed to the rain of sadness
Amber light sparkles and memory is fading
Then cold starlight illuminates the bars of my sorrow’s cage
And I melt into gladness, and slip free
The Marble Tower
This short story is something I wrote in 2018.
