Morning jam: "What are we going to do about the rich?" A question left provocatively unanswered. By Pet Shop Boys.

On one hand, asking a RPG designer about their next project is the best question. "I really like your stuff. Tell me more." On the other hand, it's the most crushing question. "Don't tell me you're tapped out? I guess you weren't the inspired creator I thought you were."

With the shuttering of Google+ I may gradually start using it more. It lets me share to groups, and has a higher character limit for posts.

Solo parenting and packing a house from August through November and then moving across country, was fully consuming and really cut into my creative projects, so there's pretty much nothing further toward "Finished", but there's two new projects I'm excited about in the lower left, and some shuffling of priorities in that column.

Kiddo: "Daddy, where does water come from?"
Daddy: "It comes from dirt."
Kiddo: "It does not."
