Granny D Countryside Mines CricketDiane 2018 4 w Music – the small somewhat animated piece I did yesterday for Granny D and The Scared Donkey Mine Money Game to learn more about animating and game development – yes, it is very rough, but so cool being able to do it. My music is in the video too. Video animation of Granny D walking through the countryside to the mines is one way we are looking at solving the visual style of the game – may try something else also. Please visit our GoFundMe page raising money to develop the Scared Donkey Mine Game into a video game from its board game version designed and created by Diane C. Phillips, aka CricketDiane and Cricket House Studios Art and Design.

Lessons from the Real World

Lessons From The Real World
By Cricket Diane C Phillips

In the course of our human lives, we can choose much of what we do, but not everything. I think sometimes whether having been able to choose so much of it, could I have done better? The answer is, “I don’t know.”

I used to be so sure I could’ve done better, made better choices, pursued better avenues and now, I’m not so sure. Everything has brought me to this point. It feels infinitely stupid to be concerned about it anymore.

Because of both the choices I’ve made and those I had no hand in but lived with anyway, I’ve learned a few things:

1. Don’t ever ask God to give me the wisdom of a wise man or to make me wise. And never ask for patience.

(Do you have any idea what it takes to become wise? It isn’t going to be pretty.)

2. Don’t ever let someone else make a decision for me simply because I don’t want to be the one to do it.

(If they appear ignorant of all the facts, they probably are. You know, too, you won’t see them living with the results of the choices they made for you.)

3. Don’t ever follow the suggestions of anyone who wouldn’t, couldn’t or doesn’t do what they’re suggesting.

(Some things sound good on paper or are bound to be knowledgeable sounding that don’t work in real living. If you notice – they’re saying it, but not doing it – how would they know if it works or not?) Living is an applied science.

And,

4. Don’t ever limit myself to what I can do alone by myself.

(You aren’t in a world unto yourself nor by yourself in the world no matter what it seems. The range of what you could do extends far beyond what could be accomplished by you alone.)
