01 First Thoughts:

Up way too early… again…

… this time, not the dogs’ fault, though the dogs made sure i got up once i woke up…

… Heather Cox Richardson wrote on the role of social media in spreading misinformation about vaccines and COVID… apparently just 12 accounts are responsible for priding 65% of the misinformation and, while free speech cannot be regulated, algorithms can… ahhh… well, let’s get busy then… that should solve part of the problem… we still have to address Fox and other outlets intent on spreading bad, misleading and seditious information…

… we will go to K and B’s on Sunday… at last i can deliver their photograph and get that off my mind…

… there appears to have been little rain since yesterday afternoon… this summer, rain gets promised by the weather app, then fails to materialize constantly… yesterday there was a level five flash flood warning… hardly a drop of rain… it’s weird, the app used to be more accurate than that… have conditions changed away from the algorithms?…

… computer problems… crash and reboot… why is it that i struggle with computer issue when i am up early and might be extra productive… is there only a certain amount of productive available on any given day?…

… i looked through Riddle by Fiona Veronique… i struggle to comprehend the narrative except it is about the latter day west and a road trip she took with her sister through it… the photographs are a trail of breadcrumbs and i suppose the title refers to the idea that we might need to carefully follow it to get the gist… my primary reaction is that there are photographs missing… there needed to be a few more crumbs… and i wonder about her focus on her sister who repeatedly appears in the book… there seems no specific purpose to that other than she needed some portrait shots… will continue to review and see if my impressions change at all…
