I’m tired

I’m tired, folks.

I’m tired of having to reinvent every little thing just to get to the very first stage of making anything.

I’m tired of it taking ten times longer to edit a podcast to elide the awkwardness of a half second time delay – and of how unnatural that delay makes every Zoom meeting.

I’m tired of my house!

I’m tired of putting a brave face on it.

Something will emerge. Something, probably, better. Leaner, kinder, smarter. (I will emerge none of these things.)

But mark this time. And acknowledge – own – that it sucks.

We’re making despite, not because.
