Using deft and org-mode in Emacs to take notes about the important things I learned from the fediverse today...

A friend just texted this to me. Now I share the joy (and pain). Sorry not sorry.

Every time I see some of these images of Jupiter from Juno, I marvel like I did to Voyagers' photos of Jupiter as a kid in elementary school.

"NASA’s Juno spacecraft captured this impressive image revealing a band of swirling clouds in Jupiter's northern latitudes during Juno’s close flyby on Nov. 3, 2019. Small pop-up storms can also be seen rising above the lighter areas of the clouds, most noticeably on the right side of the image."

Hey! Look what I spotted on the magazine rack while I was out getting a replacement light switch.

There will always be a special place in my heart for those people who reimport "international edition" textbooks to the US. Over the years they have made so much knowledge accessible to me and, I assume, many others.

Snow in March? It's supposed to clear out in a few hours, but still surprising.

This is the first time I've had to bust out the automotive tools to make my PB&J sandwich. But no stuck jar is going to keep me from my sandwich.

Test print of stickers from the previously mentioned image came back. They look pretty good, but I probably want a different material like vinyl.

I'm back? I enjoyed the holidays more than I expected to. I took some time to "finish" this image I cooked up in support of my team working on a project at work (sasquatch and narwhal were code names). It's been a long time since I had done anything creative. I'd like to make it a habit again, but I don't know... Welp, time to get back to the grind.

I feel an urge to get back to art after not doing anything for two years. I pulled out an unfinished carving, but it may not be a good place to restart. The concept always felt too big for the stone, and it was damaged in one of my many moves. So maybe I should let it go. I spent a couple of minutes this evening contemplating it, and an image of taking my hammer and pounding it to dust kept flashing through my mind. That'll happen eventually, but maybe I shouldn't be the one to do it.
