Two Month Hiatus… Wow…

It has been quite a while since I’ve posted on here, mainly because between the crazy economy, Presidential transition, filling translation orders, classes at the University, and work on the Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon Project, I have been swamped.

I’ve never considered myself an archeologist in any sort of literal sense, but now sorting through 20 year old code and piecing together old systems alongside silver casting phrases in Old Aramaic, I’m feeling this weird sense of irony.

Hopefully I’ll have some neat stuff up on here soon relating to the following:

  • Significantly cheaper and more focused online Aramaic Classes.
  • An Aramaic Class on the Lord’s Prayer and a select few of Jesus’ other sayings.
  • New Aramaic jewelry.
  • New tattoo stencils based off of Liz’s artwork and some new art of my own.

And lastly, anything else you can think of. Simply leave a comment on this thread with your ideas.
