A little video I threw together in iMovie, with footage of a blizzard in January 2016 in rural Pennsylvania. Music by me as well, composed on my Korg Electribes and recorded into Audacity.
I find I’m lacking practice in my life. Yoga practice, guitar practice, programming practice, practicing material I’ve recently learned (for retention), practicing a 2nd language, practicing random acts of kindness; all sorts of practice. I think a lecture on Marxism as “a Philosophy of Praxis” that I watched recently, along with a couple of talks given by Jordan Peterson (here and here), have really thrust the notion of practice to the front of my purview.
Practice can be fun, and even when it’s not, knowing that it’s crucial to improvement should be enough to motivate me to do it.
Thanks to Mike for the tip.

turned onto via my friend Danny, check it (—noname— by lee (asano+ryuhei)) for some genre mashing:
- What are you gonna do?
- Go into the forest //
until I can’t remember my name //
I’m gonna come back and things will be different //
I’m gonna bring back some stories and games.
