I’ve started to read The Left Hand Of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. It’s a shame that her passing has finally spurred me into doing so. 📚
I hope the HomePod is a success but silly phrases like “the experience of moving to a Retina screen… for your ears” are not going to convince me to give up what I already have.
Rush: a band who sparked the teenage imagination like few others. Nice, fair, piece in The Guardian about the retirement of Rush.
Sunlit test. “View from the office” today.
I’ve been reading Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul It’s an excellent bit of popular music and social history centred on the tensions within the Motown record label in that year. 📚
First day back at work and plenty of this is needed.
I ordered a keyboard from Amazon UK today and was asked at the order page if I wanted to conceal what was in the package. It’s maybe not the best of keyboards but nothing to be embarrassed about.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t like bezel-free phones. I need thumb space.
I got some cartridges for my slightly battered Lamy Al-Star fountain pen. Planning to use it a lot this year.

I’ve had my new phone for a couple of days now and haven’t logged into Facebook yet. It feels good.
