Riding on Amtrak train 🚊 from Boston to Philly, seeing the Northeast from this viewpoint is quite interesting.
I am making a packing list for a trip I am taking this weekend. I am trying to avoid I should bring this just in case phenomenon. I wonder if I am the only one who packs once with everything I might need and then unpacks everything and re-packs with things I actually need.

Just as Space X didn’t explode but instead had a rapid unscheduled disassembly, I did not fall yesterday but had an unexpected gravitational issue.
Eighty-four-year-old Andrew Lester pleaded not guilty to the shooting of sixteen-year-old Ralph Yarl. Not surprisingly he listed fear as the reason for the shooting.

It is both interesting and scary to imagine what would have happened had Steve Jobs backed down to the RIAA demands to disable Audio Hijack Pro. I am not sure podcasts would be what they are today if he had.
As I stood on my balcony this morning I noticed a few buds appearing on one of the trees. There is no green as of yet, but still a sign of the coming spring.
