Hello again! I exist! :D
Acclimatizing to being on the internet again after taking June off of work to be very much offline and explore nature with my sister.
We saw so many beautiful things, and my heart is full! My world got very small during the pandemic and this trip really helped restore my sense of balance and perspective.. I now feel capable and strong, but also extremely humbled and small (in a good way). So grateful to be here with all of you. <3
I'm <10 minutes away from being offline for the month of June on sabbatical. Looking forward to unplugging, reconnecting with nature, and spending some much needed quality time with my sister.
As much as I enjoy the steady stream of updates and pet photos, I am looking forward to experiencing a month without an internet connection or cellphone service and just *walking*
<3 see you soon, much love.
I'm usually never this busy, but it has been good for me. 😴❤️
are folks using a service to x-post between mastodon and the birdsite? would love a recommendation, apologies for #lazyweb ...I am tired
I am back from the northwest vipassana meditation center!
I am not even sure how to articulate what a deeply profound and **humbling** experience this was for me...
I have learnt an incredible skill to process emotions and experiences. I feel fundamentally changed as a person. (going to try and make a comic to better explain before I leave to hike later this month)
Would highly recommend for everyone. If you are curious, you can find course schedules on www.dhamma.org
As of tomorrow, I will be offline for 10 days to participate at a silent meditation center. ttyl! 🤐
I think I’ll be forever chasing the high of the moment when ✨it finally works✨
Programming is such an emotional roller coaster...
Some days, I can’t imagine doing anything else. Merrily solving problems, feeling productive with a sense of purpose.
Other days, like today, I wonder how there was ever a time I felt competent. Running into pitfall after pitfall, slowly crawling forward. =_=;
