I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

Silicon Valley’s vaunted UX is a ultimately a diabolical dark pattern. Burn it to the ground and support the @MarkWarner #DETOUR act bill that regulates dark patterns in UI/UX which increasingly governs the livelihoods of Americans living in app-based precarity and 1099 income.
If you’ve ever tried to opt-out of any of Facebook’s deep settings, you know exactly what a dark pattern feels like. #DETOURact
Speaking of opting out of Facebook’s dark pattern deep settings, if anyone ever manages to hide all of the advertisers who have uploaded your data to target you, the Pope should have you Sainted.
