Parenting personal

clutter of the mind

Like sharpson stepping on jagged stones. Remove every as you find. Fuck the world, relax and exhale. Let the blood drain from your legs and get back to your brain.

Breath. Breeeeeeeeeeath.

Put signs on every room in your house, to make it a bit more exciting.

Take the moment to relax and write, create instead of consume. Perform.

Imagine a few minutes time. It will come soon.

Improve your Zoom

Just a quick note, try playing some music in the background next time if you are in a zoom meeting (or teams or whatever). You can usually adjust the volume down low compared to the zoom audio. People on the call can’t here it on your headset, and it can really make the meeting nicer.

I like a bit of chill electro to add a bit of background noise. Try a cinematic score to liven up a boring meeting a bit 🙂

Quick story

Driving along a winding road, up the side of a hill.
It is deepening dusk, and the road curves upwards to the right.
The mountain side has some trees (pines) and short grass. It’s cold, maybe close to freezing.
The car is cold, the windscreen is still a small bit fogged.

The surface of the road changes to closely packed upturned feet, with little faces on the sole (just below the toes). They are all staring at you without speaking, as your tires loose grip on the shiny upturned flesh. Your car skids, careens across the road, and out over the edge of the abyss.

As the car starts tipping end over end, rapidly approaching the ground, all you can think of is the road made of upturned feet.

Working in prod

Look, I’m not, a professional let us say. Sometimes I work in prod shell.

In order to keep myself aware of same, make this little change to the .tmux file so you always have a visual queue that you are in prod:

# Status Bar
set -g status-bg red
