I’ve just returned from a three week trip to India which was full of spending time with family, events, some sightseeing. It was a whirlwind, but thankfully everything went smoothly 🥰. Been decompressing at home with jet lag, while catching up on work.

Sunset Taj

Jenni and I in front of the Taj Mahal which is glowing in sunset yellow-orange color.

Scenes around New Delhi

Sidewalk full of plants and a sign that reads “Nizam’s” with some orange sunlight coming through a sort-of tunnel made by foliage.

People at a street side bookstore with books piled eight feet high off the ground.

Golden hour sunlight through a hazy sky with trees silhouetted in the distance and cars in the foreground.

It has been a while since I did one of these!

Todays sunrise. A minute before this it was all shades of pink.

A view of the sunrise with colors going from golden yellow on the horizon to bright orange to dark orange with the silhouette of a tree in the foreground.

Just noticed that my Obsidian notes folder was missing a lot of files. I use iCloud to sync it. According to Time Machine, the data loss happened almost two months ago. Restored from there to separate folder. About to work through identifying changes with git and restoring. Ugh.

All social activities happen in bubbles. Even IRL. As long as a platform allows me to manage that bubble, I’m fine with it.

When President Biden visited Portland recently, his motorcade went down the road that’s two blocks from our place. We were away at that time. So now, Mr. Momo, our indoor cat, who never leaves home, has been in closer proximity to POTUS than either of us will likely ever be 😐

My iPad was cold to the touch this morning. Then I started reading Viticci’s Stage Manager article, enabled it for the first time, and started to play with it. Five minutes later my iPad was nice and warm. I like this feature!

Happy Diwali 🪔
