I'm looking for specific questions to answer in the coming weeks months that need visual clarification.

ANY question you have about animation I am willing to answer, research and / or explore.

I have a few subjects in my head to go over...

Planning - Checked off*
Breaking down an animated scene
Gesture drawing / silhouette
Facial animation

While I'm not an expert in any one of these things, I feel like creating something that can be used for reference or a starting point will help anyone who may want to.  I've been less than social over the last year or two, and I hope to fix that ^__^

Ask questions, focus my brain and I will contribute.

I have been doing great! Had some really bad last 3 weeks with jaw surgery and lost my grandfather this weekend so I have to fly out to florida to deal with that, but i've been good. Working with Ogrilla on doing a new site/forum for animation potentially.

Sad and sorry to hear about the bad, but the good and the new animation, plus knowing Ogrilla is still kicking and animating is awesome!

Very nice work, amigo!  You have an awesome sense of timing to your animation!  Great snappyness to it!  Thank you kindly for watching!  It is very much appreciated!  I am definitely watching you as well!

That means an awful lot to hear from a fellow animator ^__^  Especially one as absurdly clean and clearly experienced as yourself : )
