11pm Saturday, a hotel somewhere in the outskirts of London. The wires on the light switches seem confused, and it's apparently impossible to turn the bathroom light on without turning the main room light on. This would wake #son2. So instead, I'm crouching near the floor in the limpid light of the under-sink illumination. In case you need to find a towel in the middle of the night.
My contact lens cleaning liquid is dripping through my fingers and out of my hand, landing in ambiently-lit drops on the tiles. It's sub-optimal. But it's the best I've got. The key realisation is small: just wipe up the drops after I've finished. This is what happens.
The moral of the story is - don't worry, anything can be cleared up afterwards given the right materials and mindset. Or maybe it's to get your wiring right in the first place. Yeah, probably that actually.
With Flickr and Instagram making their commercial moves lately, I've been thinking how to spread my photos online. I want to use this newsletter more. Except Google are killing their Inbox app too, which is the only Android email client I've found that actually embeds photos? And TinyLetter seems to have been forgotten about. Shitty capitalist tech.
But the approach seems sound. Expect more stuff here. Expect some shifts. Expect greatness.
