First, thank you for reading these. Why the switch to short posts? Frankly, all my long-post think goes to stuff for my actual job as a freelance writer. I just don’t have brain or inclination to try to weave my life’s doings into longer post. This is more of a commonplace book. However, given enough time writing about myself I just might get inspired to do longer pieces. Who knows?


Neurotribes

Been reading a history of autism called Neurotribes. It’s been fascinating, but amazingly messed-up. I’m a little over halfway through. One of these days, I’ll need to get tested for it by a professional, but considering how messed-up it is I wonder if it’s even worth the hassle and risk?


Purchases

Spent on myself. New puffy jacket and rain shell from REI for my upcoming hike. Also bought two board games: Forbidden Island and Pandemic Legacy. Forbidden Island is quite the clever little game. I look forward to more plays.


Ironic

It’s ironic that I write web copy for a living and have such a hard time keeping up with any personal writing.

It’s ironic that I spent 30+ years of my life not knowing why my mind operates the way it does and now I’llĀ  be spending the rest of my life correcting and compensating.

It’s ironic that I could spend six months sunk in a programming project only to find out all the work was wasted just because I wanted some recognition.

 


Let Go

Sometimes you have to let go of it all to progress. Old identities and patterns of mind are pernicious. Let. Go. Realize they are impermanent, suffering, and subject to change.
