Braided Leather iPad Grip
Braided Leather iPad Grip

Getting a grip

My new iPad is one slippery beast to handle and none of the available covers and cases pleased me so as usual I set off on my own course to try and solve this little problem.

It took a while to isolate the issues and home in on my solution. I started with a simple leather rectangle glued on the back of the iPad. That helped some but it still felt insecure in my hand. Cutting a hole in the center for my fingers to wrap into helped more. Then a friend suggested lacing the edges. Bingo! The grip is firm, friendly, and secure.

Simple. I like it. Now to make another one to reward my friend's suggestion.

Growing up... it never stops

I am enjoying finally growing up, but guess what, boys and girls? It NEVER STOPS!!! For the record, there is no point where everything is "solved" and fine and enlightened and fixed in perpetual harmony and light. Oh, for a while, certainly. For years at a time, even. But soon you reach the next divide, hoho, and then it's grow or die a living death. The lucky ones keep struggling and discovering, challenging themselves, no matter how old they are. Don't believe anything else. NONE OF THIS IS LIKE IT SEEMS.
