Me: where can I buy a “.book” domain?

Internet: you can’t.

Me: ok, but why?

Internet: because Amazon owns them all.

Me: oh. 😔

Newspaper: read. New wall art: hung. Beowulf: finished.

A good Sunday so far.

There is an avocado in the street

Ripe, rich, ready

For a day not now to come

Never guacamole will it be

Nor on tacos

Instead lonely

Once filled with dreams 

Of salads, chips, and cheese

Unmet

Now it lies there in the street

Alone

Today is a Tycho and Bach day.

Just beat today’s (now yesterday’s) Wordle with literally 15 seconds to midnight. Kept the streak!

Two nights in a row of live music. 

I have missed this dearly.

Yesterday I wrote a blog post about reaching 100,000 words on my blog the same year that I hit 10 years of blogging.

It's still wild to me that I've been blogging for 10 years!

🎶 Listening to John Steven Morgan's SOLO PIANO WORKS II. It is excellent.

I discovered John's music when I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago. He was playing in Golden Gate Park and I bought on of his albums on the spot.

Interesting take from SDUT today.

“Why do we print letters about Trump? Because that’s what you all keep sending in.”

Perhaps the blame lies with us too.

I’m not sure why, but I am currently practicing my handwriting. I’ve wanted it to be better for a long time and I guess I finally hit a point where I’m willing to practice.

A day at the bookstore followed by a long walk and leftover, homemade Eggplant Parmesan.

A good Sunday.

Today I did some Good Takes™.

This article has a pretty negative spin, but I don’t think we should understate the effect of 700,000 people being enrolled in a 50% renewable energy power plan with a 100% renewables option.

It’s probably the biggest climate improvement in SD to date.

Great conversation with CA Assembly-member Chris Ward (San Diego) on his new housing bill.

Interesting bill and a good idea. Good to see primary owner amendment made it in too.

sonicrocketman

This is a particular interest of mine: San Diego pushed people into homelessness in part by removing the lowest rung (cheapest) housing.
