Sometimes you want to take a picture, capture how the morning light looks filtering through the trees; your cooled skin; the sound of birds.
But you can never smell the air in that photo. You can't look around to see the rest of the world from that spot you stood, capturing a split second of light.
The only way to remember it is to sit for a while; feel it as deeply as you can; accept that it'll never be as good as it is right now.

I can do you one better than Minus, though: Delete your big social network accounts, and don't sign up to new ones of any size. 😐
I'm thinking of moving our documentation to a more purpose-built platform / site generator, instead of the custom one we have now on https://writefreely.org/docs.
Ideally, we'd switch to a tool that supports Markdown (current docs: https://github.com/writefreely/documentation), and allows people to search.
