Earlier this month, my good friend and TIDE podcast co-host, @daibarnes tragically passed away.

Episode 119, recorded back in June, proved to be the last one we ever did together. #RIPDai

A memorial episode will go out next week, featuring audio contributions from those who knew him.

Please exchange contact details on here when somebody means something to you (doesn't have to be street addresses or other identifying things). Mastodon accounts get deleted, servers vanish, phones get stolen and shit happens.

Please reach out to me if we're mutuals and you want an email address or messenger details.

Learned from losing someone to the internet void recently.

Ponder the words 'productive' and 'productivity' and notice whether you feel any disquiet which manifests as a feeling /sensation in your body.

This feeling might be labelled 'urgency', 'lack', 'anxiety' etc.

Drop the label, and sit with the feeing/sensation for a while.

Note whether it has a size shape, weight, colour or density.

Note the space around the borders of the area. Keep switching your attention back and forth between the space and the area.

Check how you feel now.

Some USB batteries have both a USB-A and USB-C input to charge up. Anyone know if you can charge using both at the same time?

If you're an active artist on mastodon and would be interested in being interviewed by me to talk about why you like mastodon for art, and would consent to the interview being published on the joinmastodon.org blog, please respond to this and let me know!

I'll only pick a few people and mostly at random but preferably artists who use mastodon to share their art or talk to other artists would be preferred.

So lucky to have this beautiful spot in an urban area. A 10 minute walk from our house.

A miracle for my original "student" who comes to do improvisation on piano with me : she returned home to find that a neighbour had an old Yamaha keyboard he no longer wanted which he gave to her. She's now able to practice and play at home!

One of the best pieces of advice I've ever been given, and one of the few I've passed on to my kids is - believe nothing, question *absolutely* everything, and hold all things up to the scrutiny of your own experience.
