Pretty cool rings actually, the 2nd one especially. Not crazy to be making things inspired by the things that inspire you. Thats pretty much what art is.

I have an idea of how you are feeling right now, several of my friends have lost their parents recently. The world loses its colour and everything is painted in shades of grey but the colour does come back gradually, in a very slow agonising way.

Out of interest, if you are looking for something to pass the time, have you ever thought of giving Fallen Earth a try? From reading your blog, crafting seems to be your main focus in gaming and thats mostly what Fallen Earth is about, with a bit of violence thrown in.

Thanks Graham. That was a great way to express how I'm feeling. Everyday feels like a rainy day.

As much as I enjoy crafting, my first criteria is the story environment and post apocalyptic doesn't appeal to me. I think it would border on depressing. That's one of the reasons I didn't return to EVE which is where I like to go when I'm feeling like I need to be alone to resolve some thoughts. All that darkness would make me even more depressed right now.

I have time when it's not on my mind and things feel normal. When it's bad, I just tell myself this is how it's supposed to feel when you lose someone and it will get easier over time.

Thanks for sharing.



I love the wire ring.

Not too big on post apocalypse tales myself but its not a particularly dark world, other than palette wise. Theres a lot of humour in the game and I find the whole experience fairly light hearted and relaxing compared to most games.

Still, I play EQ2 extended as well for a bit of variety, although I find the crafting hard to deal with now they have forced everyone into the route of work orders, rather than skilling up from the bonus xp of creating an item for the first time. No clue why they changed that and I dont like it much.

You should try and force yourself to game a bit though, escapism is healthy for the mind, your brain needs a break now and again.
