Just a quick message of a celebratory nature.
I must confess that within reason I try (okay, okay, most of the time I fail), to not be a bean counter as far as page views, subscribers, or likes, etc., go, but every once in a great while a numerical hallmark is achieved that just deserves mentioning.
In light of that, I was driven, nay, compelled, to briefly mention that the elusive and mighty Gauntlet of Balthazar - for all of it's quirk and multi-focused creative divergences and consciously shameless self-promotion, has well surpassed over 15,000th page visits by readers (and watchers and listeners) across the globe.
From the US to Hong Kong, from Russian to the UAE, and from the UK to India, etc., etc., somehow that hearty number of humans have stumbled onto this home of problematic art, button-pushing commentary and hopefully insightful observations, and I expect some of you have might have even returned here more than a few times.
I will admit that I over the last couple of years (especially in 2019) I slacked often and took many, many breaks, often lengthy, from consistently posting here due to the vagaries and logistics of artistic creation and other real world constraints on my time, but I have to say that (at least at the moment) I'm fairly certain that some fresh content will be on its way.
Till next time.
