Giving in a bit. I need the Bootstrap CSS to lay out a site. CSS is not my forte.
I gave up this morning and went back to my old friend Bootstrap. The CSS portion makes life so much better. The material feel is an affordance in my opinion. This is not an art project. I want to end up with a site that is simple to use, even the first time.
I need some time alone each day. I have learned over the years that I need to keep that to an hour or less. I need time to reflect, not brood. Over the last decade I found that working with others gives me purpose, and a feeling of belonging. My therapist is fond of citing examples of strong social networks being part of a healthy emotional state. I agree.
Remember that the internet was not built to allow everyone to be an individual, it exists because we need a way to connect individuals together, to survive in a world that has been partitioned by nuclear war. It was built to bring those that survived together. Commerce destroyed that ideal, most of the sites exist to make commerce inexpensive or to market products to you. We can resist by building our own sites, publish your own thoughts and follow the others that inspire you.
