And it was smashed to atoms—his fun

My writing will live here. has been… wait for it… smashed to atoms. The name and my Github name come from a Virginia Woolf quote that an ex-girlfriend of mine turned me onto. I still really like the phrase, and it still feels good to use. I didn’t read Mrs. Dalloway until much later, and after having read it, I enjoy the expression even more.

The old site, with its terrible writing, memes, and videos that haven’t aged well, will likely take up residence in the way-back machine or the hollow to which forgotten websites disappear. There was an awkward coming-of-age story about a beaver I tried to kill in a ditch when I was 15. If we meet in person and you want to hear a downer story that profoundly binds my mom and me, you can ask me about it. The original written story prompted a written response in the comments section from my mom that I cherish. I wrote about my dad a few times as well. I miss him. All of it is gone, though. My current interests will lead the way from here on.

Let’s be honest; it’s going to be about technology since that is who I am. It’s probably going to be a little about getting older because I’m also feeling that. I’ll probably mention my family and friends when it makes sense. Come for the opinions on serverless programming, programming languages, etc.; stay for the aside’s of a middle-aged white guy who is not enjoying parts of getting older.
