Still here, beside you…

Hey.. Love is Love. If you disagree, check your hearts to make sure they’re still in there. Two is cool 👀 but forced binaries are low and artificial. ☀️ Full stop.

Rainbow – Lahaina, HI

Changed? Darn right we changed. We all do everyday or we ain’t moving forward. Look at plants, they grow, become root bound, and eventually need a bigger pot to thrive but we don’t judge them for that.

Time and time again, we drop our figurative anchors into the oceans of data, down to what we consider the literary bedrock. That’s ok, we all need our rest.

D1v1ng down though, you might be surprised to find out that our anchors have been swallowed by sad whales dragging us along for a ride. (no offense to actual 🐋’s intended ☺️)

sum(my unsolicited .02) = Awaken, go inside, find YOU, do your work, ask for help, rest and heal when you need too, wear sunscreen and find shade when you need it, eat mindfully, drink plenty of water, sing, dance, pull up your anchors, and sail into the New World each day with your framilies! Stay Weird! Stay Kind! Seek diverse perspectives! Look out for one another! Find your Joy Growing and Adventuring Together! Remember to Care! I love you all! Glad you’re still with us! 🖖🏼

Update: I am happy to report that I have found the secret entrance. 🤣

Best Super Bowl Commercial! VW Vader

With the exception of this one, I was not very impressed at the commercials this year. Some of them were just plain bad. This one made me laugh so hard. Who can honestly say that they haven’t tried this as a kid. Ok ok maybe you can ….. I can’t 😉

Quad-Copter – Test Flight

So I managed to procure another set of ESC’s, soldered them up, and finished the power harness. I still want to build some landing gear and move the battery to the bottom, but for now it will do.

I tested it briefly after work on Friday, but today I was able to tweak the programming and had a very successful test flight until one of my props broke. I ordered some more props for backup and will be back in the air soon. 😉

Thanks Robbie for shooting the video!

More detailed pics and information on the build process to come.

Dreaming – Our own personal simulator!

I’ve noticed over the past couple years and especially more recently, that sometimes I will continue to work on some challenge (coding/design project, school work, etc…) even while sleeping.

Quite frequently I awake only to remember bits and pieces.

Rarely can I remember the solution long enough to write it down and implement it the next day. When I have been able to, I was surprised to find out that it actually made sense. After watching this video, it seems to make more sense.

Perhaps their is a way to harness the power of our minds in a creative/productive way while we are in a seemingly useless/unproductive state.
