❇️ The key to getting stuff done is to find what works for you, right? Well, for Eric it's this Window's To Do app and for me, it was discovering that these 20 baht post-its that weren't really post-its are great for writing down what I need to do and then tossing them in the trash. What do you use?
❇️ I had to go to Immigration to get my visa renewed. (No problems, thanks!) And on the long drive over, I listened to one of my colleagues talk about how if you get the CV jab you are more likely to see spacemen falling from the sky. (Cool!) He also snickered at the news on TV at Immigration, then later explained how NASA didn't really land on Mars 'cause Mars has no atmosphere so that parachute thingy on Perseverance was a put-on to fool us.
❇️ This is the same guy who believes the Earth is flat, so I hadn't exactly been looking forward to this day. Eric suggested I bring earbuds for the ride, but I confessed that as a writer this stuff is material gold, so I listened, and agreed and disagreed, but I let him breathe, you know what I mean? After all, when my friend Darren announced on social that after his first vaccine shot he was trippin', I put 2 and 2 together, yo.
❇️ So I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower with my student in Singapore and found out after the fact that the book is banned there. Crazy, right? We couldn't figure out why she couldn't read it on her Kindle or computer... thank god they didn't cane her or something. (Kidding!)
❇️ It's mango season so we're eating lots of lush ripe delicious fruit. Be jealous! Let the feeling flow through your body and out your fingertips, let the envy shoot out of your eyes like angry lasers. Now, don't you feel better?

Sometimes you get lost in the internet, and sometimes you find someone new. Say hello to Cindy Olmes, an American mix media painter. One day I'll have a place to call my own and I'll fill it with art, I tell you, fill it with art!
Hope you are well and good, my friend,
No Girl is an Island
