Winding down the day and getting ready to slide into the weekend.
I was in a strange and vengeful mood. It had been a long hard day, and on nights like these, I am aweful to be around.

Don’t you find it kind of funny how we know what we need to know but like to pretend we don’t know so that we don’t have to act on what we know? (mind blowing i know)
Let me explain:
Feet touched the ground at 05:47.
I know you’re not supposed to but I got sucked into social media first thing this morning. Linkedin specifically. Gary Vaynerchuk had a post up, 5 Best Tips for Salespeople. I read it and watched the accompanying 10 minute video. It was worth the time.
I only had time to read one of Olson’s poems this morning. Besides, mind was too full of frantic thoughts to concentrate on a poem. The words clashed. I went for a walk instead.
Post walk, ended up in a Zoom meeting which led me to Atlassian directly taking on Slack with their latest communication tool – Stride. It’s an app formerly known as Hipchat as far as I can see. But then again I haven’t properly given Stride a go so it’s probably premature for me to say that. Stride led me to a very funny lady, Sarah Cooper and her blog.
I hesitated to post this audio from my walk. It’s a completely unedited stream of consciousness capture so listen at your own risk:
I spent a bucket load more time than I had intended redesigning the look and feel of the blog. Changing a WordPress theme is supposed to be easy and there was a time when it was. But lately, there seems, at least in my experience over the last 18 months, a lot of compatibility issues between WordPress plugins and PHP server side. Getting hit with the ambiguous HTTP Error 500 is a pain. I don’t pretend to be a coder, but I have had to deal with stuff on the server side that I never had to do before. In fact, I vow never to change the theme of this blog again. It’s been that much of a pain. On top of that, I now have to go through back posts to deal with formatting issues. Oh the joy of being a blogger! And I’m only just getting back into game properly.
I never did make it to the gym.
22:26 OK, I I’m going to close this entry out now. I’m going to drink a coffee and read some more of the Charles Olson biography and then finish off The Tick series on Amazon Prime. I started it over dinner. There are only 6 episodes in the first season so I might as well finish it off tonight. I’m halfway there.
They say fear is a doorway. I can’t help but wonder, what’s on the other side of the doorway for me?
