Notes.

I think I need to clip my subscription list of podcasts. I have realised I am spending significant chunk of my day listening to varying perspectives on same set of news.

Podcasts demand attention, so can’t be productive. Denies my mind a chance to spring up thoughts of its own.

Late to bed, early to rise. Not the way for healthy life.

But that’s what I am going through - thanks to the great conversations taking place on micro.blog. I blame @manton @macgenie for this. 🙃

For Micro Monday, I would like to recommend @colinwalker. He writes some great posts, on his really well-designed blog with every element thought through. Been an inspiration for me to keep tinkering with mine.

Social media tricks me into thinking I’ve connected with other humans when really I have only acknowledged their existence. It is not enough.

@cygnoir words this perfectly, that’s primary reason why am no longer involved in such banal interactions

🎵 Such a creative track this - Efflux of Time by Aditi Ramesh.

Every time I listen to the Best of the Week playlist on Apple Music, I realise how different my choice of music is. I rarely like a song in there. Applies to any trending playlist for that matter.

Great trailer for Westworld Season 2. Fitting background music to an impactful utterance of the message🤩

But this world is a lie. This world needs to die.”

You know the best way to spread a bit of positivity around? Greet people in the morning. I have realised it works, so I’ve resolved to greet the support staff every morning.

Puzzles them momentarily, but it’s gratifying to see their lips spread out into a smile next.

It’s promising to see when humanity puts its difference aside to help out an animal in trouble. Yesterday, was one such showcase when a tired & scared cat was rescued by some of us. Some known, a lot unknown.

Keeps my hopes alive we will not burn the world down in our hatred.

@colinwalker Sure. For me, when I referred to long posts, I meant ones a bit refined, independent posts - not from continuous stream of thoughts. For example, I write some fictions/reviews at my blog. Can’t convince myself to keep in same timeline.
