I will think long and hard before buying used bladed tools. No matter how good they look in the photo, the blades always need a lot of work. Lot of time. Lot of wear on the diamond plate, waterstones, and sandpaper. My whole body is sore. I’m not sure I came out ahead. The results? Hit and miss. More work still needed. But not today. Happy Labor Day weekend :)

This is my homescreen

I think the sheer pace of distractions in modern life (most clearly exemplified by smart phones and email) is the greatest risk to our sanity and wisdom as individuals and a species. A hyperbole for effect? Perhaps.

Below is my latest attempt at controlling my own human weaknesses by making all of the non-urgent apps (that includes email!) on my iPhone as difficult to get to as possible. I had previously tried deleting almost everything on my phone, but that didn’t last—I am only human.

Perhaps this a realistic compromise for me in the right direction. I am already spending less time mindlessly checking apps for updates. If you’re curious, try it and let me know if it does anything for you.
