Issue #345: supporter edition

Hi reader,

So I made those changes I said I was going to make, and outlined that in this post. Basically:
  • Comments are on
  • Three different types of post each week
  • Everyone gets access at the same time
Let's see how that goes :)

How's things with you? I'm composing this on Thursday evening sitting at our dining room table. Through the kitchen skylights come streams of sunshine from a blue sky, making me feel a whole lot better than I did earlier this week.

Tomorrow morning I'm loading one of the two vans we're taking to Scout camp. I'll be there all weekend with my two children and almost 50 other Cubs and Scouts. That's just from our group — many more from other Scout groups will be there. It's going to be controlled chaos, as ever. I'm taking Monday off to recover!

Thanks to those who wrote me short notes this week. You'd be surprised at how much people who push things out into the world exist in somewhat of a feedback vacuum. Brief messages of support mean the world not only to me, but to others too. Virtual fistbumps are cool too 🤜🤛

Until next week,
