Amazing cottage weekend! No time on the water but biking and board games with the family, tinkering with a single board computer, food and walks.
I get stuck in cycles of work and silo my life too much.
Good to get out of all the cycles for a while.
Now I feel invigorated!...about trying to tackle (and maybe even deconstruct?) some of the silo's that were waiting for me at home.

I took a hard look at how I support artists & creators.
I canceled support for some creators on Patreon.com to make lump sum donations or use @Liberapay to reduce the cut money-transfer orgs take from them.
I felt bad at first b/c they won’t see me chip in monthly, but got past my ego to see’em paid more.
