Spiky Blue

This one is a bit too 'busy' for my liking. Having said that, I 'kept' it because there are some vaguely interesting patterns on the high resolution / wallpaper version (see link below).

Today's Gratitude Item: That one of my students had an 'easy to fix' problem. It was easy to fix because I had the exact problem about a month ago and spent several hours trying to figure it out. So my earlier frustration was not wasted after all.

Special Silk

Originally this one was more two dimensional but a slight adjustment to the gradient lead to something that looks more like tree roots than fabric.

Today's Gratitude Item: That today was much, much better than yesterday. We managed to make at least some progress in most of my classes.

Today's Gratitude Item: Encouragement from some of my colleagues at other schools. It helped brighten up one of 'those' days which involved unstable internet at school, new students who needed the internet to be working to make progress and an extraordinarily tame pigeon which would not leave my classroom (weirdly at one point said pigeon was happy to hop onto my hand but when I started to take it outside, it flew off again and insisted on remaining in my classroom).

Sooner / Later Spiral

As in, when using Tierazon, sooner or later, a spiral appears. This one was of the 'sooner' variety.

Today's Gratitude Item: An unexpected '10c off' per liter when filling up my car.
