If anyone is wondering, why there’s no new content on this blog: I’m on vacation in northern Germany at the Baltic Sea! I’m fine and am (mostly) enjoying the time with no internet.

I’ll join my first IndieWeb event today! Quite excited and slightly confused by the British time zone (it’s -1 hour to my time), but I’m sure it will be fun talking to other IndieWeb people. 😌

Finally I have an external wireless mouse and keyboard (Logitech MK235) for my work computer, so I can connect it to my monitor at home. Hopefully this will have a positive effect on my eyes and my posture, always working on a laptop is quite exhausting.

Beautiful poem and so true, Henrique! Even as someone who has so far attached less importance to physical contact, I can now absolutely understand how important it is. Physical contact is much more important than it seems to us. Yes, emotional connections are important. But emotional connections with physical contact reach cosmic proportions.
