I noticed this quote on Tumblr. I’ve noticed on the few occasions I’m able to just sit with difficult emotions in a meditation, they tend not to be as monolithic as they otherwise seemed beforehand. On a related note, it’s been a while since I read anything by Jack Kornfield. I really enjoyed his book… Continue reading Sitting with difficult emotions
The city adorned a path leading up to a local community center with a series of mosaics. I took a walk out there this morning, and took photos of them. One of the concrete panels is blank, which is a little odd. Hopefully that will also be filled at some point.
Today is our 13th wedding anniversary, and we both took the day off (I’ve taken the rest of this week off – I feel like I’m due for a breather from work after a busy ±8 months). We did a repeat of our last anniversary, and went for a hike up Givat HaTitora just outside… Continue reading Marriage v13.0
As you may have heard by now, Google is going to start charging for all photos uploaded to Google Photos from June 2021, not just full resolution images. While this may be alarming for some users, I would rather pay for Google Photos. Why would I say such a thing after having an option to… Continue reading I would rather pay for Google Photos
I just went out for a walk in a nearby park. That shouldn’t be particularly noteworthy except for the times we find ourselves in.

I like this approach, it’s what I’ve been doing for a little while now: If you are frustrated with the state of social networks, I recommend blogging more. I love seeing new blogs and photo blogs just as we’re having a serious debate in the mainstream about social networks. The way out isn’t easy, but… Continue reading Blogging is the antidote to social media woes
We had a free day today, as our team meetup winds down. I went for a casual walk around part of Lisbon that we hadn’t seen yet with two colleagues today. Usually, when I walk, I walk. This time, we literally ambled along in the general direction of the coast. We didn’t actually reach the… Continue reading Ambling around Lisbon
My blood glucose has been really high lately, so I’ve made an effort to get as much exercise as I can. That’s mostly been going for longer walks, and getting my heart rate up. I decided to go for a hike up Givat HaTitoria this afternoon as an alternative to parking off in front of… Continue reading My Saturday afternoon hike up Givat HaTitora in photos
