Just told the boxes I’m stacking “you don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be stable.” New mantra, i think.
Today was my 500th consecutive day of meditating at least once a day. A lot of things are very hard right now, but this is a nice reminder of doing things that are right and good for me.

There’s so much changing right now that I’m just in full on logistics mode: what’s happening next, when am I staying and where, gimme the next task. I hope I can get it all done.
Sending bitmoji to my niece. Yup, I’m that uncle.
Late night viewing of the Joan of Arc movie that Noisey produced. Worth your time if you ever listened to them.
Self care (and no, I didn’t stick my toe in the faucet 😜)
Just added a Microblog page over at Hard Like Algebra. Some nice validation got stuck and google wasn’t helping, so I just observed how it was building and then went “oh, fix the includes.” My webdev skills are stating to show up as real!
At the top of Mt Tabor. I’ve never biked up it before. A group of folks nearby are singing and playing “Where is my mind?” on acoustic. Thank you PDX.
Always glad to see these murals around town. Here’s the dog I’m house sitting with, asking, “What’s Stopping You?” #botjoy
Nostalgic songs at karaoke; nostalgic feels looking at our apartment in Google maps, back in 2009, when the neighborhood was different but the same.
I’m housesitting with a very good boy this week!
Still trying to decide if “having all the feels” is the kind of phrase that I love, or that’s really irritating and reductive. I can’t decide because, sometimes, it’s perfect.
Bridge of the gods
Successfully rode my first chair lift! Mt. Hood!

Counting Crows report: There was a whole effing debacle where you cant bring bags in. We Walked in during rain king and they were done. Crushed.
Things are looking less bleak today. Sleep is magic. I also get to see and hear music from two of my all-time favorite albums tonight. 🔢🐦
Finishing the day with a podcast bath because apparently, even though I built a self-care project in January, I’ve been kinda bad about it lately. Here’s to a better rest of the week.
