J is for… JOYOUS

Day 10 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge…

J is for….
Julia set – named after French mathematician Gaston Julia, is one of two complementary sets defined from a function in the context of complex dynamics, a topic of mathematics. A relatively small difference in values can create chaotic changes in the nearby functions  in the sequence of iterated function systems. Whereas with the complementary Fatou set (named for Pierre Fatou, another French mathematician) changes in function values create similar and less variable results to the nearby function values, thus creating regular, orderly results from iterated function systems. (I really have no idea what that means, literally, but I interpret it to be the mathematical behaviour of the “regular” Fatou set and the “chaotic” Julia set.) In other words, the Julia set is a specific type of fractals, with certain mathematical properties. I dasten’t go any further, because I would get into complex numbers, real and imaginary and pretty much out of my understanding. Here is a link that may describe it better for you, if you have the math background.

the fractal for J is:JOYOUS



Joyous is in my book, Fractal Dreams, which is available exclusively at RedmundPro.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a mathematician, so please forgive the uneducated tone of my definitions. I am an artist, so I try to explain the math of fractals to the best of my (limited)  ability.

Hi everyone… I just wanted to take a moment of our time to let you know Jeff Goins is running a promo (good 6/24/2012 only) on his e-book, You Are a Writer (So Start ACTING Like One) exclusively at
I’m doing this all on my own and not getting anything for it. I already own the book (paid for it too) and think it’s terrific.

So if you’re interested I hope you get a chance to get your FREE e-copy today.

I’ve been subscribed to Jeff Goins’ daily blog for over a year now, and he has some really good, down to earth thoughts for all writers of any level. I’m impressed. It all seems so simple, yet that’s the beauty of it! It makes total sense!!!

Love to hear what you think, if you order it (or of you already own it). Even a one word thought/review is terrific. You can email me at I’d love to hear from you.

and for your listening pleasure today…
LOVE the bass… LOVE IT!!!
