Update: got the book, digital fast starts tomorrow.

See you in a month or so, assuming I choose to reintroduce Mastodon to my digital life, that is. In the meantime, if you *really* need to get in touch, my email is just matthewlafferty at gmail.

Be good to each other, friends.

"All of us have to eventually learn to let go of something smaller so something bigger can happen. But that’s not a religion—it’s highly visible truth. It is the Way Reality Works. I am saying that the way things work and Christ are one and the same. This is not a religion to be either fervently joined or angrily rejected. It is a train ride already in motion. The tracks are visible everywhere. You can be a willing and happy traveler. Or not." (Richard Rohr)

i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

it answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere

I am currently waiting for a hold on Cal Newport's book "Digital minimalism", but I'm going ahead with a 30-day digital fast starting next week. Got my wife on board, too; she's even the one who agitated for an early start to the fast.

I've already culled my digital life some, and it's been enlightening and good for me, but I spend more time on Twitter and Mastodon than just about anywhere else online, so that's gonna be tough.

Recent self portrait.

I needed to mark the reality of being in between. Exiting one space, not quite entering another.

I don’t know if this will connect with anyone but I thought I’d share it.

Star Wars doesn't top my list of favorite nerdy franchises, but MY GOODNESS this teaser gave me chills. youtube.com/watch?v=adzYW5DZoW

Today my wife and I are celebrating our first Lambdaversary, marking the day I've known her for exactly half my life :)

In honor of the most recent Ask Science Mike podcast

"Christianity has completely lost the plot if it makes itself out to be some kind of sin management program for people who want to ensure they are good enough to avoid punishment and receive rewards." (Nadia Bolz-Weber)

Our pastor is preaching on the Prodigal Son, so I found some related reading to get me through today's sermon :)

Happy Sunday, friends.

Lunch date with our soon-to-be 13yo. Amazing how the years slip away.

You are a beautiful human being. Yeah, you. May you be at peace today. May you know you are whole.
