4th of July.
It’s my third morning waking up alone in a hotel room. The sunrises are beautiful and I’ve made timelapses of a couple.
But being alone so much can crack you. I’ve been ready to go home for a while now.
Looking back, I came down … I mean I came down here for good reasons – the photos were there. But I need to be home now.
Today we are covering the parade in Hurricane, and then we’ll hit Short Creek for some of I don’t know what. That part doesn’t seem planned out. That’s why I came earlier.
There was a huge gathering in Short Creek on Saturday, and a small fledgling parade through town. I got some great photos.
As always I check in with myself – never mind.

The big issue I’m dealing with
I’m taking in too much content. I’m too isolated. And when I’m around people my mind is busy computing all the data I’m taking in.
Inputs are -> web, podcasts, longform articles, ebooks, music, video.
I need to cut web drastically. I read so many articles and pages. But the same information comes to me in a better, nuanced way through podcasts and longform. Even books.
Podcasts? N asked me how many I listened to regularly. It was 38, and has grown since. I need to start weeding out the ones I don’t really care about. At least the episodes. No harm in subscribing…
So I can listen to more music. Because when I’m listening to music my mind is processing all the data it has taken in, and coming up with ideas.
As far as video, I’ve experimented with YouTube over the past week – it’s mostly garbage, at least the stuff in my feed. Nothing would be missed if app was deleted.
Mostly I need to be writing here.
