Inspiration, Diversion, & Consolation

arduinoLEDsi came to the makerspace earlier than usual today. i figured that being around creative people would inspire me. an hour later i got a call from my mechanic & found out my jeep repairs are going to cost 3x more than the original estimate. i didn’t need to stew about the high cost of daily transportation, i needed some kind of diversion… so i decided to program an arduino board, and focus my energies on making these colored lights blink. maybe expanding my mind in this way will provide a little consolation. right now i’m just waiting for the software to download.
***3 hours after the paragraph above was typed, i accomplished this!
