I’ve had a lot of distractions the past two weeks that have kept me from writing some of the things that I’ve had in mind. For instance, I have an outline sketched of a longer blog post on Kiwi Farms and Cloudflare and the infrastructure of the internet.
A variety of last minute trips (fun at least!) and a lot of fatigue has kept me from finishing a newsletter in that time. I’m working on being ok with letting things set for a while though. That includes not putting out writing if I’m not really feeling it yet.
I recently discovered SICK magazine, a literary annual by and for sick and disabled people. Reading an AIGA interview with one of the founders made me think more on making life fit you, as opposed to you fitting an idea of what your life is supposed to be.
Take your time. Don’t fall into the trap of assuming that people are expecting more of you than of themselves. We’re all worried that others will be upset with us for things that we aren’t upset with from them. Giving yourself space also gives permission for others to take space for themselves.
If you made it this far, why not share this newsletter with a friend? Or share with me some of the things that you found that you liked this week. Either way, I’m thrilled!
