It’s been an interesting few months and I can’t remember having as much time on my hands in my entire career. I have jumped back in to reading, journaling, and learning new things, especially around AI and social media.
Did an overnight camp out and some exploratory day hiking this weekend on the Deschutes River. Followed the old railroad on the East side of the canyon. It was really lovely with big open spaces, high desert grasslands and lots of blue sky and sun.
This picture was taken with my cell phone from the campsite. Had not seen so many stars in forever.
“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then. It is like a storm in the atmosphere.” – Thomas Jefferson 1787
