Happy Solstice! Sorry I didn't say it sooner, I had a cold.

I wrote an app in for BlindAlive, a company providing audio workouts for the blind. Sadly, they will go out of business at the end of the year. Writing the app has inspired me to work on a meditation app during 2019.

"OK, let's recap the movie so far. Someone went to Acapulco, and somebody almost bought gas."

I've seen a lot of weird movies on , and Cry Wilderness definitely belongs on the list.
"It was horrible! They played the same public domain animal sound effects record at sunset every day."

Due to health reasons I finally got around to catching up on . After watching Reptilicus I consider it as good as the original.

💙 I got into QiGong because I began using acupuncture to treat chronic pain, but fell in love with the system. For depression I also recommend some of the Taoist meditation techniques such as Inner Smile and the Six Healing Sounds. You might want to try acupuncture if you live in a big city and can afford it. I also find floating in a sensory deprivation tank very helpful. I forget if we already talked about that. Awesome! I plan to start learning for the same reason. Finding an exercise system you like also helps. I love !

I feel so glad I switched to last summer! I'll take Emacs over a web editor any day.

I woke with a headache, but really want to go to this show tonight.

@lilo Yeah Chrome tends to have worse outside of Google's systems. My friend may have tried using Safari. I use Firefox myself. She promised to give it another shot so we'll see.
