Sunny today. Currently, it's 43˚F.

Yesterday, I wrote 930 words on "Pillbug" and came to THE END, for a total of 3,551 words. Today, I'll put the digest together, Issue #122, and subscribers should have it by tomorrow evening. Meanwhile, I have two boxes I need to sort for Brown, and I have to decide on the ToC for Dear Sweet Filthy World, and, most importantly, it's time for me to make the big mental shift towards The Starkeeper.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions.

And I need a shower in the worst way.

The news blackout is going well. For all I know, the bluebird of happiness has put the snatch on Bernie Sanders. He could be halfway to Oz by now. Yo, witches! Keep watching the skies!

News blackoout
Keep it up permanently. News organisations deliberately foster anxiety to keep people hanging on, waiting compulsively for the next update or outrage. Informing people, analysing, and contextualising are not the aims of mass media anymore. Ensuring a steady flow of revenue is their aim, and creating and maintaining anxiety is a means of doing that. I deliberately avoid waiting for regular news bulletins and only download summaries if and when I want them from reputable sources in a restrained format. My anxiety's gone way down as a result and I'm no less informed because I really only miss the chaff and the repetition.
