New high quality print Eye of the Storm #6 now available on my JMFpixels store.
I really don’t like that feeling of “having” to do something. “Compellation.” “Pressure.”
It’s the week before Christmas, and all through the world it is for freedom that Christ has set you free! Stand firm, therefore, in trust and hope, for he surely lives and reigns over all things even now.

This piece, “Call Me in the Morning 2” for this week’s Mad Mondays is now available as “Chase the Rainbow EZ12728,” a deck of playing cards at Decked Out, a project I’m very excited about. I’m not as excited about the price of the deck, but it is December of 2023 after all, and it is a nice deck of cards made from smooth card stock that’s standard for dealing & shuffling. Includes 52x playing cards with 2x Joker cards. Printify, who is not shipping from China (like CowCow), is evidently running a cheap imitation hit campaign against market dominant Printful, who happen to also sell far higher quality wear. Seeing is not everything when time is involved!
But, the point is if you’ve got a line on high quality print playing cards that a. do not have to cross an ocean b. can be bought in bulk, drop me a line at MadPXM.com/contact. (I’m also looking for a high quality papergoods supplier, and I’m thinking local.")
So, in the meantime here’s one deck that, if you play a lot of cards, I must admit, I think is probably worth the $15 to stand out at the table and start a conversation or three.
📐🦊Almost Daily Smarts
When you move on is where the real magic happens. When you accept that you know (verb) significantly more than you think (verb), then you can also admit you will never in all your life have time to re-think everything you’ve thought about enough to bother taking the time to write it down. What you are after is not notes and a management system, but timely and accurate recall.
That’s the Activation you can’t plan, and put well into practice as wisdom (rather than knowledge) is worth all the marbles in the world.
📐🧧From the Wyr Eld of Watergeist
Earth finished what was left of his meal in silence, then rose and dressed, changing his dirty gear for the fine leathers. They were tailored. He felt smooth and agile, like the wind. Strange how mere clothing could have such an effect on the mind. Still, he was the same as he ever was on the inside.
The Omen of the Forgotten? How could it not be far fetched? But the King himself believed it, or said that he did. Earth had often wondered, staring up at that lonely mountain looming over Elusa, and he had concluded that the Forgotten, having such a name, surely held some foresight, if only as a tale.
But now the events of the last day brooded around him, a storm he did not conjure, nor that was he sure he could maintain. Laying on the cot, staring at the canopy as dusk faded under growing dark, he could only assume that no matter how he felt about the situation, the crux of the matter was in his hands now.
