\\ After very recently coming out of a major setback in my life that considerable amount of my time was condemned to over the last six months or year (and one I hope to touch on through a fifth “Reflective Log”), I’ve taken this summer to uniting my present-moment creative outpouring with the creative outpourings of my childhood. Though I’m sure I will revise this message here at a later time, I’ve had the joy recently of realizing how fun and fulfilling it would be to pick up where I left off, at least as far as I can distantly remember, on a fantasy story I created as a child. Associated names were “Astro Quest,” “Galaxy Quest,” and the less-used “Immortal Domination.” Details as far as how the story went I’ve recollected recently through some notes I typed down and may post them in some form here at a later time. I outpoured this story during my childhood through numerous mediums.

\\ I’ve been calling this ongoing process of uniting my present-moment creative outpouring with the creative outpourings of my childhood “self-excavation.” What this means, said simply enough, is digging deep into my childhood psyche, placing it in collaboration with my present-day psyche, and seeing what happens. This updated story I am now currently calling “Rainbow Sun;” or maybe “A Rainbow Sun.” I hope to outpour this during my present-moment through numerous mediums. Mixing mediums is important to me right now.

\\ With this in focus, here I will attach a small portion of the old drawings I was able to find, most likely around the age of seven, that I made in connection with this fantasy story or, possibly, multiple overlapping fantasy stories. Here I will, of equal importance to me, attach a written introduction to the updated story I am now currently calling “Rainbow Sun:”
