Thursday thoughts

Sometimes the sustainability of this activity comes to the forefront of my mind. Gas, electric - it doesn't really matter.  It's the spirit of the activity - complete, individual control of high-powered machinery that is grossly unnecessary...

...but there is so much value in the practice and discipline required to skillfully operate these machines.  It's mentally and physically challenging.  It satisfies a need to live on the edge, but your comfort envelope forces you to earn that exhileration...

Are there others, non-motor-powered ways to achieve whatever end I'm after?  Probably...

I found an e-mail in my inbox one evening - something to the tune of:

Mycroft has subscribed to your YouTube channel

My what? I have a YouTube account? More alarming, I have my own channel?! I had two natural reactions to this event...

  1. I must reciprocate - chances are this Mycroft has a channel as well.

  2. Holy crap, I need to get a video up there - my surprise channel has nothing to watch!

So that night I decided I was going to record my morning routine starting with my 6:30am alarm.
