subtoot-ish, tech 

In today's episode of Life During Isolation, it's been interesting to see normies start to learn what video/voice/text chats are. Unaware you're supposed to be muted while talking shit, leaving cameras on while you're making lunch, on and on. This is like tech/corporate life 101 stuff.

We really are in a bubble all of our own! Welcome, though.

In today's episode of Life During Isolation, I did a hobo version of a workout by doing exercises in my shed. Mostly by hugging/throwing a cinder block over my head, body weight stuff, and a light run afterward.

I know this is sorta fine, but I really should figure out something better.

Damn folks, it seems like we're heading into a time of deep social isolation and fear. If only we had a robust network of friends across the globe with whom we can distract ourselves and enjoy sparkling conversation and offer support in a trying time. It would be even better if it were functionally resilient by virtue of not relying on any centralized infrastructure, and were free from fearmongering advertisements.
A guy can dream, I guess!

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
