With the summer's warmest days behind us, I've been enjoying long walks, spending as much time outside as possible, and generally preparing myself for the Northwestern Washington winter.

I'm thinking about simplicity, quietness, patience, nature, and depth. And how to effectively balance those things with human-centric activities, especially technical work, in a way that provides lasting and sustainable value.

I'm continuing to learn written Japanese. I'm deepening and simplifying my coding habits. I've been learning to build command line apps in Rust and consuming a lot of O'Reilly's JavaScript content.
