AI photo restoration
AI photo restoration I have a black and white photo-booth snapshot of my grandparents taken in 1941 right after they got married. It’s torn, bent, water damaged, discolored, and the paper developed something like scales. I photographed it with my iPhone 13 and started photo editing it. It was going to be a long tedious process. After reading your article, I followed your link and uploaded the image to the site. The software worked incredibly well. It even moved the torn chunk a little to try to realign it. Half the work is done and the detail in their eyes, nose, mouth and hair is probably not something I could have achieved.
Thank you, Kim, for featuring my writing journey on your blog!
Thank you, Kim, for featuring my writing journey on your blog! I never even imagined an article like this from anyone. It’s really cool. My philosophy is to grow where I’m planted. Pebbles don’t complain about where they are dropped in the lake, they just go ahead and make a splash right there. My first email to my list was to eight subscribers. I love how you say it, “not disdaining the small size of his subscriber list.” That’s right. Each of those subscribers wanted to hear from me (presumably), so that’s where I started.
Robert Stermscheg’s Stealth

I have so many hard copy books!
I have so many hard copy books! Most were purchased decades ago. If I had all the books in Apple Books and on my Kindle in hard copy format, it might challenge the integrity of the flooring system in my house. My parents parted ways with many books in a purge about 20 years ago. I hate that because there were some books in their collection that I wish I had today. Not that anyone else misses them, my mom still has a wall full of books.
Writing from a Christian worldview
There is an opportunity here to write in a way that doesn’t wallow in religious sentiments. Superficially, narrative fiction is mere escapist entertainment. Beneath the surface, writers are telling a story to express ideas. Authors use narrative to paint pictures of life, to draw boundaries around opposites, to place markers…
Occultic October An “objectification of evil” is a good way to put it, Nicola. The sewage spill of occultic symbolism blithely broadcast by media and corporations from their clueless marketing goofs gets picked up by individuals in society and happily paraded as “fun” and amplified by social media. As if a celebration of death through noxious, occultic, human sacrifice rituals is somehow something that anyone should call fun.
