Wise words on technology creep from a former coworker:

"But again, be forewarned. We were told this same thing with the advent of word processors, and in the end, we didn’t go home early because we got our work done. Instead we output more letters."

Goodnight friends! Weather at least was v. consistent today, sky smooth unblemished grey as flat & featureless as a fogbank. Trees looked black & uncanny—something about the thick atmosphere made them new & weird, my awe tinged with a vague menace.

A few brief intoxicating bursts of energy—drawing again at last—between long drowsy lethargies. Feeling a raspy tickle in the back of my throat, nervously hoping I haven't caught @Damage 's cold!

May we give each other comfort today!

Goodnight friends! Speaking the pattern seemed to dispell it, for today at least. Clouds were diaphanous softly edgeless washes of mist, leaving the air dry & ever so pale blue. Diffuse gold light made soft, long grey-blue shadows for the long moment of morning & stained the treetops a hot burnished copper.

May we dare to explore our unconventional passions & playful selves without shame today!

Those aren’t two “tribes,”...There’s a ruling class. They like each other. They don’t like you. That’s the history behind every Bush and Michelle Obama picture... Privilege looks into a mirror, and calls the sight beautiful."

“It’s been weeks since we’ve acted silly. Is this growing up? Less silliness? Maybe I’m already grown, even though my body’s small. All I know is, I’m more grown than my parents and teachers think I am. What I feel and what I know and my body don’t match.”

Went to a Christmas party last night with a Yankee gift swap. Ended up with Fleetwood Mac's Rumors on vinyl. What the heck am I going to do with this?
