I just finished watching the 2010 remake of True Grit with Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon. I’m pretty sure I saw the original when I was a child but have no memory of it. Either way, I think it was a great movie. I loved it purely for the language. They spoke in a most spectacular fashion. Also, I admired the main character Mattie; the girl had some definite spunk while very well refined.

I was in a devotional for the children and youth of New York City this evening. These things always get me inspired and bring a lot of reflection. But, unfortunately, this dwindles off quickly, and life starts to distract me again. Now here is the thing. I seldom share anything spiritual or faith-based. I fear I may offend and be ostracized by the community (any community, for that matter). I’m not talking proselytizing, but sharing thoughts, ideas, asking questions, and so on.

I received my record player yesterday. It’s just a cheap Victrola suitcase player. I bought it to listen to a record a friend of mine made for his friends as a Christmas present. Now I can see this turning into an addiction. The record player itself sounds pretty crappy in reality, but just the process of listening to music on one again was amazing. I sat at my desk and did some work with it spinning behind me, and it just felt so authentic if I could use the word in that way.

Finally got some snow here in Staten Island.

Well, it’s the end of the year. Not much happened while living the exciting life of a housebound Mr.Mom homeschooling two children. But a few essential items. I started writing again, after many years. I started Journaling and fell into the abyss, which is fountain pen and pencil fandom. I gave up my Kindle and only do print books. I became a vegan about 8 months ago. I started corresponding with pen and paper.

Finished reading: The Revenge of Analog by David Sax ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 📚

After reading this, I started writing thoughts and a plan of action and got to about 2,000 words. A bit much for a blog post, so I think I will make a short series of posts over the coming weeks instead. Great book

Not even sure if there will ever be a podcast but I just want to test and see how all this works on Micro.Blog.

May be my last purchase of this paper, don’t know how much longer I’ll be able to find it. This is plain, I couldn’t find lines at a reasonable price.
