Welp. LASIK gave me perfect vision for 7 years and now I’m a bit nearsighted again. 🤷🏼‍♀️

It’s a good thing I look cute in glasses. 🤓

Photo of the day: Let there be light! Yes, my resistor is in the wrong spot.

An electronics breadboard with a single yellow LED lit. Red and black wires connect the breadboard to a small circuit board.

I’m watching The Tick, and it’s eighty percent dad jokes.

I just ordered an Arduino electronics kit for my birthday, and I look forward to learning just enough code to make silly devices.

I’m up early attending Stoicon. As much as I miss travel, it’s rather luxurious to watch a conference in my PJs on the couch. 😄

I voted today, and I’ve been thinking about the people I met at the Womens March in DC back in 2017. Today feels like the culmination of a promise we all made. Not to any candidate, but to one another. ❤️

A teenage girl holds up a sign that says womens rights are human rights.A young black man holds up a sign that says Women's lives matter.A crowded field of protesters with "love army" signs and pink hats.A man wears a paper sign with the inscription from the Statue of Liberty "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free..."Cheri, smiling, holds up her ballot.

P & I have our get-out-the vote letters ready to send out tomorrow. Let’s get out the vote! Check in with your friends. We’ve got this.🗳 🇺🇸

80+ envelopes fan out from Cheri’s hand.

My friend D in Chicago made me a scarf! 🙂 I’m all set for November weather.

Micronauts: Are any of you using Ghost, and if so, do you like it?

The Woodland Park Zoo has a nice setup. Timed tickets, limited occupancy, one-way walking routes, and watchful staff directing traffic.

Four giraffes and three gazellea hanging out in a hilly meadow with one impressive leafy tree.

When one pier falls, another one rises. Today, we had afternoon coffee on the brand new Pier 62. So roomy!

The Seattle skyline is blue and gray against a gray sky. A large concrete pier, very clean and flat is dotted with tables. To the far right, the water of Elliott bay is choppy. The Great Wheel is a round feature in the distance.

I survived the dentist. The hygienist wore so much PPE that he looked ready to visit the moon.

Everything was well-organized and quick. I’m grateful and impressed.

From yesterday’s city hike: The Fremont Troll. 🚶‍♀️ 🚶‍♂️

A twenty foot tall troll sculpture crawls out from beneath a bridge in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. His eyeball is painted silver and he has a VW beetle crushed in one long-fingered hand.
