A Slower, Quieter Life

There are 2 levels of work that allow for someone to live this way. I’m already in the first level.  Before I took the introverted job of making Minecraft maps, I was in an extroverted job of being a teacher. I loved aspects of this, usually the teaching parts were best, but ultimately, working with…

Update on My to Do List for MC Maps

In my State of DeepwellBridge post I promised to update Chronicles of Clo and then finish 2 other maps, the Wonderland map and a third map I had started at the beginning of 2021…  Well, I completely ignored what I said I’d do and finished a fourth Ultra Secret Map. I just sent that map…

I Just Submitted My New Minecraft Map!

Well, it was a long road to finishing my second map but it’s now being reviewed by Microsoft! This usually takes about a month or 2. They have a lot of maps to review. Still sick but much less so. I was going to go to the pastor’s house for a Thanksgiving feast, but I…

Update on my Mysterious MC Project

The world is finished!  Well, it was finished a week ago. I was working on the marketing when I got sick. And man did this sickness hit me hard! Just a constant fever, no throat issues, but I’m very sleepy all the time. As you might have imagined, this sort of slowed down as I’m…

A Little Autumn Cleaning

Now that I’m entering back into the professional side of things, I need to do a little autumn cleaning on this blog. DeepwellBridge began as a place to explain my fiction. I later added the Minecraft project which took me down several rabbit trails until I landed my current job of working with Lifeboat. Well,…

State of DeepwellBridge

Sony recently had their State of Play presentation. I guess it’s my turn. I currently work with a Minecraft partner as a producer of Minecraft content and DLC. But that’s not where I began. 3 years ago, around this time, I was an independent partner (called oddly enough DeepwellBridge) who released the Minecraft adventure map,…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: The Emotion of Chords

The expression of feeling and story is an important part of music in movies and life.  Watch a breathtaking scene in a movie and odds are there’s a glorious soundtrack playing in the background.  In a ritzy restaurant, the owners play smooth jazz, creating an atmosphere of delight and charm.  How do composers achieve these…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: Counting Music

Music is sound waves played over a period of time.  A pianist must learn to count and feel it while he plays.  The closest archetype that demonstrates this is the tick of a clock.  Sixty ticks a minute tells us whether we will be late or early to an appointment, how long until the next…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: C Major scale for the Left Hand

As a teacher of twenty five students, I highly recommend private lessons.  For those on the go, wishing to learn what they can, this is the place for you. It takes years of study to play the piano correctly.  I will only be touching on the finer points here.  Feel free to post any questions…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: C Major Scale for the Right Hand

As a teacher of twenty five students, I highly recommend private lessons.  For those on the go, wishing to learn what they can, this is the place for you. It takes years of study to play the piano correctly.  I will only be touching on the finer points here.  Feel free to post any questions…
