If, like me, you have the desire to help but are unsure of how, because things feel seismic and primal and massive, I propose one thing we can always do to avoid #paralysis is begin with personal practice. #BlackLivesMatter
We become what we practice.
#Practice a skill and you become better at it. Cease its practice and you become better at its opposite. There's no status quo. We are always practicing something. #BlackLivesMatter
If I cease practicing the acquisition, validation and refinement of knowledge, I don't just become worse at learning, I become better at misinformation and ignorance. #BlackLivesMatter

I am incredibly grateful to count on all the support from Dumfries for this campaign. Tonight, I get to add the endorsement of Mayor Derrick Wood, @DRWood77, to our campaign. Our campaign has more momentum everyday and it's because of the support from people like you. Thank you! Image

On rounds this week

Her: “You by yourself?”
Me: “Yes. Well. . . yes and no.”
Her: “I’m used to y’all coming in here in a big ol’ pack.”


Me: “Yeah. Usually we do. The rest of the team is outside of the door right now.”

She looked to the door. Then back at me.
Me: “Since your intern doctor saw you earlier and we’re doing the infection precautions for you, we’re trying to spare using more protective gowns and equipment than is necessary, you know?”

Her: *eyebrows raised* Say what now?”

I cleared my throat and shifted on my feet.
Her: *chuckling* “Damn. Y’all worried ‘bout to running out or something?”
Me: *not chuckling*


The television was muted. Someone on the local news was talking about #COVID19 being reported in Georgia. We both looked up at the screen without talking.

*Happiness thread"

Happiness is a range of feelings from positive emotions to great joy.

Happiness changes the way we see ourselves and situations. Our happiness affects how we react in situations and interact with others.

#Happiness is a choice.

#Happiness is infectious

Researchers have found that happiness supports: a stronger immune system, stronger resilience in the face of stress, a stronger heart and less risk of cardiovascular disease, alongside quicker recovery times when overcoming illness or surgery
Happiness maximises our ability to look after ourselves. Happiness supports more exercise, better socializing, healthy eating, good sleep hygiene.

#happiness is a beautiful thing 😀👍🖐️

I suppose we can safely say that now #TheFrighteners have been so successfully and publicly put on a certain sector their combined angst will spew a diarrhoea of spin & warp whilst trying to use THAT VERY THING to generate $£Es Some with automated AdTech software already bought.
2/ Some bought by gormless companies, by mistake, some in full knowledge or partial knowledge of what it could do. It will be interesting as time goes on to see who apparently DIDN'T CARE about the likely instigation of its more negative 'dark' capabilities looking to 'side-step'
3/ or even 'wrong-foot' Irish & EU regulation standards, & possibly law. This too is a kind of #climatechange & #ClimateAction in itself, a would be mammoth untouchable iceberg of 'dominion' & 'control' being melted out into an ocean of citizens' scrutiny & advancement for change
