Please tip the writer. Whatever amount you like. We are always short of cash. If you need essential oils, please get in touch-my wife is a rep for DoTerra. Let me know if you or someone you know needs web design/development-my rates aren’t bad, and I’m more than pretty good at it. Java/database/UI too. ThankYouVeryMuch!
I’ve been thinking about higher order stuff this blog interval. Not sure if anything will come of it. Had one of those “alien visitation” dreams too. Just wondering which paradigm is the right one (Steiner vs Bardo), and how we just can’t know for sure. Plus also “what’s the point” sort of thoughts. Think it’s part of the whole current shitshow we’re in. It’s hard to keep that sunny disposition when everything is dissolving. No worries-just gotta keep hanging on and saving money. Hopefully I can continue my contract or quickly find another one. Working remotely might be a plus…gotta get up to speed on React.
Does it matter how far you are, or where you have to go? No. You take this place as it is, and work your work the way you work it. As long as your awareness is clear, and you’re working on making progress, what happens is and is what happens. The Goal is the goal, and the Work is the work. Every pinnacle is the beginning of the next pinnacle. Seven inside one inside seven, forever. It’s school and not school, you learn and you bliss.
Okaaaay, that’s enough depth. Time to make music. While I’m still here. Recap: ran, worked out. M did t’ai chi. Slept OK, up 9ish. Morning, tidied, vacuumed. E & S & E-S to rally. E downtown. M and I drank, plus. Up and up and up, forever.
Monday morning, start of sprint. Recorded a bunch of music Saturday night. M had a bit too much to drink, but did the proper prep to not get hungover-his meds magnified things a bit. Ran early yesterday, shopping in the afternoon. Pretty mellow otherwise.
Tuesday midday. Was up late last night, so I bagged getting up early to run. It’s going to be 80° after work, so I’m debating whether to run after work or tomorrow morning.
Thursday morning. Listening to a Nat Geo thing on the ‘Rona. Ran after work on Tues. Not much else-Kamala Harris is the veep choice. Work, tidy, dishes and laundry, cooking, food shop Sat or Sun, workouts on the days-that’s really it. E goes out and shops, everyone else sits and plays on their devices. M works twice a week. I want to make more music, but… E put up a sheer curtain on the back porch-now it looks like fog or smoke.
Friday morning, in the stand-up. Glad it’s Friday-didn’t sleep well last night. I don’t think E did either. Got up early to run-going to be warm today. It was almost cold, but sunny and nice. Almost ran into 2 girls running on Fuller. Don’t feel great-maybe breakfast will help. We’ll see. Going to be super hot this weekend. Def. running early Sunday. Here’s a chart of my speed progression. Nice to have it upwards through almost 3 months.
A week, Sunday, late afternoon. On the bed, computing. Been playing a golf game on my phone a lot. chill Friday, finished some UI design stuff, one other issue is a conundrum. Mellow Sat., E went to protests, I picked up S, not much else. Forgot t’ai chi. Church, shopping, got a pull up bar and a cheap brew keg-want to make ginger beer-need yeast. Maybe I’ll get a concentrate and make regular beer too. Had lunch at a dim sum place by Wal-mart. Need to run when it gets cooler.
Monday, sprint planning day. Bailed on the run last night-dinner instead. E came to bed late-riots in Wisconsin-one guess why… Need to go over the budget and pay bills-slacked all last week.
Now Friday afternoon. E is at the freedom march. Pretty quiet week-not working out because of the heat-don’t want to get up early. Went to the ER on Tues. because of E’s kidney pain-the issue from last week disappeared and they don’t know what’s up with her pain. Paid bills, finished up my paper cranes, played my shakuhachi a little.
Monday afternoon. Busy getting stuff done. No shopping yesterday, no workouts either. It’s getting cooler, we switched to the heavier comforter. E went downtown for the fun Saturday, got a tattoo yesterday. I cleaned. S’s 13th birthday today, she’s getting a nose piercing. Mess with the right-wingers visiting our town. They caused a bunch of trouble, and no one is saying anything about it.
Wednesday, lunchtime. Trying to get stuff done before the end of sprint. Not much else-going to be hot, didn’t plan meals this week. Time to call this entry.
Not so bright: don’t even want to go there (especially now).
