We’ve not had much gardening time this year but some things have flourished regardless. I love that our kids get to see where food really comes from.

…for whatever reason, I had a tough few days this last week. The positive feedback has been really timely and important. So if you said nice things: thank you!

My posts and tweets – old, new, current and ongoing – have been getting some love lately. It’s good to know that some of the stuff that makes it out of my brain is sometimes funny, useful, or whatever it is to you. And…

Reminded that I have some video “courses” I’ve put together to help other WordPressers and less-experienced developers learn some tools and techniques.


Some of these are unfinished. Let me know what would be useful to add and I’ll see if I can make more.

Me: Well, that’s great, but you still sent me an email in error. Are you going to fix anything?

Tech support is about closing tickets. Not fixing things that are broken.

This is what the wrong KPI’s do.

I don’t understand tech support:

Me: I got an email from you about something unrelated to my account. Why was it sent? And is it spam?
Support: It’s not spam. But you can ignore it.
Me: OK, so your system sent me an incorrect email?
Support: You can ignore it

But “grace” is also something that brings joy & beauty to the world. A “graceful” dancer, for example, has a positive emotion & aesthetic.

Graceful behaviour is what the world needs now. People moving through life gracefully, giving gifts, sharing unconditionally, bringing joy.

Recently the main cataphatic “word” I have been holding and pondering has been “hope”.

But seasons change, and I think I’m moving on to think about “grace”.

The greek word “χάρις”/”charis” is loaded with meaning: a gift; a blessing; kindness; being freely given.

I was reading about apophatic (mystical/beyond words) spirituality and cataphatic (towards words) spirituality the other day. I’m feel very much at both ends of this spectrum. Words are important but we mustn’t make them so important that they are the only way we experience life.

Really wanting to 😡 but deciding to 🤐.

It’s not worth it.

Move along. What’s next‽ What’s been good today?

But until then please just consider:

– Will it work in square format, or is there a variation that will?
– Does it have small details that will be lost when the logo is small?
– If the logo has text in it, is it readable at anything less than a large-size logo?

I’m NOT a designer. But at some point I need to write a blog post on the basic rules of logo design to try to get people to ask “How will this look when I use it for…?”
