Thank Grog It’s Firday!
There is a Buddhist art form of creating amazing sand sculptures over time, and then wiping them out of existence after they are finished. These tapestries of color are called “Mandalas” and a source of endless fascination to me.
In practice, the exceedingly complex and beautiful sand paintings are meant to represent the universe. The process helps them organize what we understand about creation, but when each mandala is finished, they are destroyed in a way of representing the transitory nature of existence. In short…nothing stays the same…as evolution and change are the only constants in creation (and physics).
But…a real conundrum happens when they are photographed. And in many ways, our TSTO games face the same conundrum of existence…especially in light of Item Limits and EA dictating where we can create through Free Land Tiles to expand our “creations.”
But…there IS a solution!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Some exciting news to announce…the newest baby Addict has arrived!
Samuel Richard “baby Sam” (as Riley calls him) arrived, very quickly, on Tuesday morning August 28th at 8:20am. Weighing in at 7lbs, 7oz and 19″ long. We’re all over the moon excited about him…especially the Tiny Addict herself Miss Riley!
We’re all home now and adjusting to life as a family of four…and getting readjusted to sleepless nights. Which, if you’ve followed this site back when Riley was born, is a welcomed relief considering how Riley’s life started out. Very different this time around. So I won’t be back in the site until after Moe’s Ark is complete. But, fear not! I’ve got a bunch of posts pre-written for this event (which is actually what you’ve been reading from me for the last week+) and the boys are more than capable of handling what we weren’t able to prewrite.
So please do me a favor and don’t give Patric to hard of a time the next couple of weeks. He’s working overtime to cover the site for me while I recover and adjust to having a newborn in the house once again. I’ll be back before you know it!
And now, what I’m sure you all want to see…photos of Baby Sam!
For those who want to see more photos of Baby Sam (and Riley), you can follow my Instagram. Where, just like I did (and still do) with Riley, I’ll frequently post new photos of Baby Sam to keep those who want to be updated on him, updated. You can find my Instgram Account @AddictsAlissa or by clicking this link.
Thanks guys and see you soon!
