I’m on my deck under the neighbour’s oak tree. I have a difficult relationship with this tree. When I moved in in the fall, I raked its leaves. Everyday I sweep its dropping off my deck. Even as I sit here, it every now & then threatens me with an acorn travelling at high speed.

But today, with the temperature headed to 32 degrees, I sit comfortably in its shade, listening to birds that I can’t see but know are in its branches. Today, I love this tree. #smallstories

I drove to the store today and realized that it was the first time in 3? weeks that I'd driven.

It felt strange. A good strange. Like driving is something that I should try to *not* do more.

I decided to look into the Xprize competition (the reason why is a story for another day), but the site says about one of the board members: "He is also the Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Singularity University" which makes me think that the robots really are already in charge having a wonderful time mocking us.

@lightweight Agreed and look forward to reading. But could not hit the “like button” on this one.

In one hour I will be home. And with the time change I will be home now. A thought that feels so good it actually hurts.

To everyone ever suffering of homesickness for whom I was not sympathetic, I am so very sorry!

@benhamill I have no objection to having ice cream with wine, except plane is boarding and there is no ice cream nearby. Promise to get ice cream (and perhaps more wine) as soon as the plane lands.

Suddenly realizing that being done with course work means BEING DONE WITH COURSEWORK!

Sitting at the airport. Two weeks of doctoral intensive behind me. Now thinking about the road ahead to candidacy. Just a warning, my supervisor suggests that it include all of you... (suggestions welcome on next steps ;))

Last night of residency. I so desperately want to be home. Right now.

24 more hours...

A better look at the little sign I painted. ✨

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

@compostablespork @lauraritchie Good luck Laura! Winding up my stay is a wonderful place right now. I also had good luck in Anaheim, though guessing that’s not exactly where you want to be!
