Let not a person revive the past
Or on the future build her hopes;
For the past has been left behind
And the future has not been reached.
Instead with insight let her see
Each presently arising state;
Let her know that and be sure of it,
Invincibly, unshakably.
Today the effort must be made;
Tomorrow Death may come. who knows?
No bargain with Death
Can keep him and his hordes away,
But one who dwells thus ardently,
Relentlessly, by day, by night —
It is she, the Peaceful Sage has said,
Who has had a single excellent night.

Gibs asked me for a new shirt design, super happy with how it turned out

@thegibson sent me a package, but I'm not sure if it's safe to show off yet.

Once again I'm at the mercy of proprietary COBOL data formats and it's pissing me off.

Mastodon and Birbsite in firefox on my laptop have some weird font glitch where kerning kinda trembles back and forth and it's annoying AF
