[Tripping On…] Grinding Off Nightmares

Nostalgia, or homecoming-pain, doesn’t do much for me anymore. An object should serve a utility, have an aesthetic you like, or as I wrote about years ago have a nice memory attached to it.

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 49 {220.0} “Supermarket Physicality Achieved?”

Yesterday, I went to the thrift store and the supermarket. I had the physicality to push a shopping cart and walk around slowly as I looked at various items.

I suppose in some sense, it was good to see where my physicality is at right now.
