We live in a world where stealing our attention is the most profitable business. Yet, knowledge work demands long periods of focused attention to get anything worthwhile done. We must constantly fight to protect our attention from the myriad of digital and physical distractions. Constant distraction is our default state now unless we take active steps to create focus.

Man, I'm expecting an Amazon order today, and I can't check the tracking to see if it was delivered yet or not. (It's being delivered to a locker).

When you see a building as old as Notre Dame, or older, it can leave a lasting impression on you, at least for me it has. I know it's a church, and I know how some people feel about religion, but I'm not talking about religion, I'm talking about architecture.

Notre Dame is burning? I don't know how to even react to this, except to say that, at least I got to see it once in my life, back when I was in college. I recently even found my school assignment from that trip.

I really miss my uncle and my dad, heck I still really miss my best friend. All three of them are named Michael. That name has been very significant in my life. Kinda odd when I think about it.

I still have some pain in my foot now and then, but it’s nothing compared to the pain after I broke it, or the blood clot even. Time and medication made me forget how much it really hurt, and I am glad. I don’t want to remember. If you can stand and walk, don’t take that for granted.

These events we get to participate in are a lot of fun, but these Ghostbuster suits really suck in the Florida heat.

Tonight my mom will be in her new house, and everything is working over here after a modem reset yesterday. So I got a few things done while waiting for a delivery.

More than anything, though. I was ticked off, and I was trying to sound smart. I succeed at it sometimes.

@ND3JR Oh joy. Of course such a thing exists since they have politicians in their pockets.

I do realize I am one voice among many, and in the grand scheme my words fall on deaf ears. No politician or big corporate CEO is listening, or even cares what I have to say. This is my soap box and I will stand and say it anyway.

Maybe I should have said glasses industry, not market. Still, Luxotica is too big, like the big cable companies are too big, and they control too much. They can afford to treat customers like crap when there’s only like one or two options in town. That’s just not cool.
