Sometimes, on Friday nights before a long weekend, when you are settling in together to watch new episodes of some of your favorite shows, the occasion calls for freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. And sometimes, with 5-minutes left before the cookies are finished, your oven angrily beeps and flashes F96 at you. It’s those times […]
It’s like writing at school: In English class you’d write in your book and you can’t erase what you’ve written. It’s easy in Microsoft Word to be so pedantic and look at a blank screen. With typewriters, there’s more permanent to what you put on paper. Sometimes that leads to more creative outcomes because you […]

From Anne Helen Peterson’s “The Final Frontier of the Text Inbox“: West Elm will be emailing you once a day about the last day of its Summer Clearance until you die. Even after you die, maybe even after West Elm dies, the emails will still hit your inbox, like boats against the current, borne back […]
Today’s mood setter is “Oh!”, by The Linda Lindas. 🎵
Clouds Blocking light, blocking thought An occasional bird weaves in and out of vision. Earth Scars of disaster and of man An occasional tree grows despite our best efforts. Underground So dark and yet comfortingly warm An occasional Earth emerges. To cover and renew.
Watched episodes 1-3 of Only Murders In the Building and just watching the chemistry between the cast makes me happy to watch this. Funny, and looks like the story is going to be really good. 📺
Finished Reading Incredible Doom Vol. 1. 📚 I took @sod’s recommendation and am very happy I did so. There’s so much to love in each drawn frame and the story is stellar. I’m anxiously waiting for the next volume.
In airports, I have never been a resident alien; I am a traveler, just like everyone else. I really love this comic by Shing Yin Khor.
I have today’s mood setter, Santigold’s “Run the Road”, playing loud. Windows open, volume up! 🎵
Things that grow in containers, sibsiding only off of what is given, provided, and falls their way by happenstance. Scheduled and pruned and measured, water, fertilizer, soil and the fauna that visit. Kept by their owners or ones that their owners pay to keep. They envy the weeds that grow nearby.
