Today on the bird site I unfollowed a bunch of accounts. The second step I took was to remove the app ( yet again ) from my phone. Now if I can only figure out how to use the wolly-mammoth site….

Good morning ☕. Today is my first day going bag to work after my vacation. So far it’s not going as planned. I’m just hoping that I don’t start off 2023 by being late!

Today was a travel day for me. I’m now back home in Toronto preparing for the coming week. In many ways the new year really starts for me tomorrow. I’m apprehensive and excited. We’ll see how it goes.

Another thing that I should mention is that I’ve started using @gluon for most of my micro.blog activity. The app is fantastic and the more that I use it, the more that I like it.

After taking a break over Christmas, I’ve decided to give the bird site another chance. But honestly, I’m leaning towards making micro.blog my primary social media space.

One of the good things about microblogging is that it’s concise, making the posts hopefully clear. So keeping this in mind, and with a new year beginning, maybe it’s time to revisit my account’s bio?

To be honest I don’t think that the past 3 years have been very good for many people. Right now I’m just really hoping that we see both in our personal lives, and throughout the greater world, some improvement in the coming year. Wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year for 2023. Be well.

Merry Christmas. I hope that everyone finds a moment to pause with loved ones this holiday season. Let’s take care of one another, and be well everyone.

This photo is from a few days ago, but it sums up what winter is bringing us so far here in Ontario. Major winter storm moving in over the next few days. Be safe everyone.

For those of us in the northern hemisphere today is the shortest day of the year. After the darkness comes the light. Happy Winter Solstice everyone.

Wishing all of my friends in the United States a Happy American Thanksgiving today. Hope that you have a great day with family and loved ones.

Today in the northern hemisphere it is the first day of autumn. Here in Toronto it sure does feel like fall has arrived. I’m thankful for the cooler air, and if I’m completely honest I have say that fall is probably one of my favorite seasons. Here’s wishing everyone a great autumn, and for those in the south I hope that you all have a great spring time too.

Wishing all of my Jewish friends, as well as all those who are celebrating everywhere, a very Happy Passover this year.

Today is budget day here in Canada. Let’s hope that there is something in the budget to really help poor people, and those struggling in these difficult times.

It’s been about two months since I’ve been on this site, and in the two minutes that I’ve been back it’s as if a ray of sunshine has cut through the dark cloud of the internet. I’m really thankful for micro.blog and the community here. Have a great day everyone.

Sad to hear today of the passing of Desmond Tutu. At the same time, I’m grateful to have witnessed in my lifetime someone who lived so true to the values of Jesus. He helped a generation the world over understand the evil of apartheid and showed us a path to a better world. RIP Desmond Tutu
