scribbles: Vol. 7 โ€“ January 15th, 2021

Well, my wife and I have officially been living in Austin ๐Ÿค  for two weeks now. We have had a great transition from Washington to Texas and even though we miss the evergreens and mountains we are enjoying the different type of greenery that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. Weirdly enough, it snowed last Sunday!

Due to the consequences of the pandemic, I am still mostly working from home. I joked with Tara the other day that it still feels like we are a short drive away from family and friends because we are still doing what we have been doing since March of last year. Social distancing, working from home, and only leaving when we really need to.

Watch ๐Ÿ‘€

I know we are super late to the hype train that existed for this show but, Schitt’s Creek is genuinely one of the funniest shows I have watched. We are trying to balance binging the entire series while also taking it easy because we know we donโ€™t want it to end. Each character is so well played and thought out, and I can already tell that it will be a favorite for years to come.

I have linked Kraigโ€™s videos before, and I am sure I will for some time but his most recent one of him hiking near a volcano in Guatemala has some stunning visuals. The format for this video is different from his meditative ones, but I still think it is relaxing and a great escape (especially from the chaos of the last two weeks). Brighter times are ahead.

Read ๐Ÿ“š

This year I started off by reading a fantasy novel called, Sabriel. It was written in the mid-90s, and I am really enjoying it. I expect I will finish it by the end of next week because I look forward to any moments I can squeeze in an opportunity to see how the story will play out. The world in which it takes place has a unique type of magic.

That does it for this week. In the coming weeks and months I am going to start sharing the process I have for the different systems I used to help me reflect, write, and think. I am especially excited to talk about a new app I started using.

Stay safe, wear a mask, read books, and love one another.
