It's been awhile since I reminded you that I love you.

I love you.

Please take care of yourself and each other; it's rough out there.

We're not alone; we have each other.

It's 10:25 AM Eastern and I'm glad you are alive.

Remember that you are worthy. You are worth the effort.

if you haven't taken this already and identify as trans, please think about finding 90 free minutes or so - it's tough, but important

pro tip, grab the tissues beforehand

Today is a complicated day for many people for many reasons.

I hope it goes as smoothly and as well as it can for you and yours.

Be patient with yourself and each other.

☄️Asteroid impact predicted with stunning accuracy☄️

On Nov 18, the Catalina Sky Survey detected an asteroid on collision course with Earth.

Although the 1m rock was harmless, it triggered the test of an automated system designed to warn humanity of a more dangerous impact.

Within hours astronomers calculated that it would hit southern Ontario on Nov. 19 at 3:27 am EST.

At the predicted time, people across the region saw the bright trail as it blazed across the sky.

Happy #FibonacciDay to those who celebrate! 🐚✨

We love finding the #Fibonacci sequence in nature and in #maker projects — like @jasoncoon's #electronic #art! 🤩

Where else have you seen cool examples of Fibonacci in action? 👩‍🔬🔎🍥

It's 9:34 AM Eastern and I'm glad you are alive.

Thank you for being here with us.

You're worth it.

Anyway, let me say without qualification that Nazis are, in fact, bad.

Save your denotational semantics for something more interesting.

This holiday can be a difficult one for some people; please be kind to yourself and others. Give folks some space; they may be dealing with more than we can see.

It is 3:16 PM Eastern and I'm glad you are alive.

Thank you for being here with me today.

I know it's not always easy and I appreciate you.

Safe and easy drive; only a few bits of gnarly traffic to deal with.

I appreciate all the kind words.

Heading to Atlanta; if something happens on the road and this is my last message I hope you will remember that I care about you and I hope you are doing well.

In all seriousness I've been debating whether or not I feel up to grinding my own mirrors or buying them and building everything else.

This is one of several reasons I was so delighted to be gifted that extremely flat stone; it's a key tool for that sort of work.

Anyone else watch this episode of the show @fcain does and wonder if you could be his "handy friend" who gets to build a telescope with him?

I mean I know it's not me but I'd totally be down for that.

Here's a better view of the damage; the blue you can see is not supposed to show through there

Fixing a small JBL Bluetooth speaker for my brother before I head down to Atlanta for the holiday. It's easier for me to desolder and resolder these speakers than try to mess with the connectors buried inside.

From the other room: "Dad, how do you spell 'filled'?"

A message from my 6yo. It's easy to forget. Take a moment and remember.
