Review: The Alchemist
★★☆☆☆

This fable is about discovering your dream (“Personal Legend”) and pursuing it to make it happen. There is a repeated line, “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” This was way too Law of Attraction-y for me and I think it has some of the same dangerous corollaries, like victim-blaming people who are having difficulties in life. I am disappointed, though not surprised, that this book is so popular.

I'm trying out the Five Basic Exercises (5BX) plan based on @Hungry4Media's recommendation. 11 minutes a day is pretty appealing. http://fit450.com/HTML/5BX_Intro.html



Speaking of loneliness, the latest @TheLiturgists episode is timely. https://theliturgists.com/podcast/2019/7/25/dealing-with-loneliness-live-from-wild-goose

I got a picture with this “life-size” photo of @infiniteelliott at the creators meetup he organized.

He premiered his new YouTube/IGTV show, @elliottandsergio. It should be out in the next week or so. It looks like it will be really good and I’m not just saying that because I may have a small clip in it. He’s a talented creator and it’s cool to see the things he’s doing already, just barely out of high school.

Fun fact: I would be rejected full membership from 99% of Christian-identified churches in America simply for loving who I want and not lying about it. Also fun fact: I don’t give a shit, watch me reclaim my space and make Bible sex puns while I’m at it ??

Came for the affirming church, stayed for the puns.

I am looking forward to seeing y'all too. Thanks for the reminder. I know in my mind these feelings will pass but in the moment it can be oof.


I've been feeling lonely and depressed for a while. Now I'm on a tight deadline for a stressful work project that I 100% feel is pointless (even for the client's stated goals). It all feels demoralizing. Like, what is good lately?

@atmlutter It was great meeting you this weekend! I didn't realize until last night that you were from Toronto. Maybe you and @jackjamieson could start up a Toronto #indieweb meetup? :)

I'm told this is a canola field. Taken as I was flying in to Kalispell.


In reply to a post on jeannie.digital:

Hi, Jeannie! I wanted to echo Manton that you don't need to be a developer but having a co-organizer definitely helps. It's all about getting together to learn and help each other; don't have to be an expert!

You might reach out to @jonathanprozzi on Twitter who used to co-organize Baltimore.
