i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                       i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

is a subtle variant of the BEAKL Zi configuration..

shift punctuation

providing alternate fingering by moving the Question and Exclamation marks from the thumb Symbol Layer to the Base Layer Shift Dot and Comma key positions..

BEAKL Pi Shift punctuation

The Punctuation* chords remain in their identical locations as the punctuation key locations do not change..

keycode single tap double tap
Space Punctuation* Space Shift
Enter Punctuation* Enter Shift Punctuation* Enter Enter Shift

The one keyboard affected is the Splitography which looses the punctuation chord for the Semicolon, Question and Exclamation marks (a low frequency character sacrifice) due to the current firmware handling of Shift-Space as Enter.

relocating the Question and Exclamation marks produces a subtly smoother writing experience (IMO) with the more nimble index finger Shift – and can be rationalized as a more logical positioning as well. As always, YMMV..

changes fast and furious. The look continues to garner attention – influenced, in part, by my Kindle e-reader font themes (Futura) and a desire to impart a less “technical” look to this site.

On the keyboard layout search, I have finally settled on BEAKL Ti, finger memory being a deciding factor in the matter, it ultimately being a wash with BEAKL Vi.

What does this all mean?

Writing. And a return to the site’s original purpose – to map the journey of this particular story. Which has traveled further than ever dreamed.
