It is noon, and the smoke blanketing Edmonton is so thick that it feels like sunset. #yeg
The neighborhood toy store where I grew up is now a vape store.
I guess communities do age with their residents.
Watched Donnie Darko for the first time and it is fantastic and amazing

Today marks two years of #indieweb for me. I've been reflecting on my experience joining the community and my plans for the future.
Today we had our first HWC in Edmonton. We had four people in attendance; everyone was either building their own personal sites on the university server, or helping people navigate the basics of building a site.
The plan is to have a weekly to bi-weekly meeting where we provide people with the tools to build their own sites. I'm starting with University pages, as it's something people should just have in general, but I'm going to write up some tutorials to motivate and guide people through the hurdles of getting involved in the indieweb community.
The local elementary school made and delivered christmas cards for the community and it's adorable. #yeg
I met this adorable tiny dog the other day. Its tongue hangs out. #yeg
Uh, so I saw this truck today. #yeg
The UofA is looking pretty today. #yeg
Going through some of the boxes my parents packed for me during the move I found not one, not two, but three cork screws.
Clearly my parents have great expectations.
Enjoying this Symphony Under the Sky pre-show #yeg
There's a whiff of maple syrup in the air. I'm not sure if it's a weird form of pathetic fallacy or not.
Using the Erhu for the solo in the Magic Flute's aria was unexpectedly fun! #yeg
On of the pianists at the chamber music festival was using a tablet for sheet music. #yeg .
