Today I had lunch with a friend, a writer, teacher, innovator. She has helped me take chances -- to go with ideas that I knew to be good. In return, I read her stories and tell her what I think; honestly; specifically. She writes a short story a month. With my critique of her, with my work at Young Writers Project, and in journalism it has been about reaching audience. I told her I didn't care anymore. Audience was of no matter. I am doing it for the enjoyment. And I feel freed.

Just registered a domain, so that's step one toward having my own instance. Feeling kinda excited..🙃

I knew everyone at the meeting would be wearing suits, so I pulled a wrinkled paisley-print shirt out of the hamper to compensate.

I have never seen a movie that was so utterly lacking in even the bare minimum of a plot. Shame on you, .

Anyway don't forget about . It's important. I know I post every single day about this but the thing is I still forget to care about it. I suddenly remembered when I get an email about it. There's so much dang stuff going on in the world that it's hard to remember it all! We gotta remind each other of what's important. Remind me of something important, right now!

the worst

Today, February 19, I celebrate the birthday of my uncle, Frank Glazer, a world-class pianist still performing just weeks before his death in 2015 at 99. His persistence, consistent hard work & deep appreciation of others inspired me & my family, particularly my oldest, also a performing musician. It's important to mark such occasions & keep our ancestors in our hearts. More here: geoffreygevalt.com The photo: Frank performing with aunt Ruth, a soprano & love of his life in 1960.

The novella is not my best writing. There's also still small errors in it that I never got around to fixing. They'll probably jump out at you. 😂

I haven't had much to say of late. Must be the late-winter blues or something. I have done a bit of work on my website and added a section for longform writing. There's a short story there and a downloadable novella. Feedback welcome, as always.

To be a SysAdmin all you gotta do is this:

- Read the documentation
- Yell "FUCK" at computer
- Copy and paste

I've been doing this for over three years trust me.

I took one look at that Bernie Sanders tweet about Amazon paying zero taxes, and then the resulting dregs of humanity responding to it, and all the calm and slowly-cultivated hope I accrued from being away from Twitter the last year, what little I could attain, disappeared in an instant, and I now know for sure again there is no hope for humanity, and we do need the great meteor to come swift and true. All praise the blessed meteor.
