Yesterday I was looking at the shadow of my curly hair blowing in the wind. The wind was strong. The shadow tells a lie, though. With the passage of time, and the changes in my life and of my body, my hair has become very thin, especially at the front. But the hair on my shadow’s head remains thick and full and wild, as if I were still young

Urgent security update

support:

Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit. 

You should also strongly consider enabling two-factor authentication. It’ll go a long way to ensure that no one besides you can access your account. Thanks, and take care.

Take heed

Clueless campaigners

Sometimes these political campaigns really seem like the old wolf and sheepdog cartoons where they detonate explosives at each other all day, but then when the 5 o’clock bell rings they smile & wave at each other and say “see you tomorrow”. I’m not sure I could ever be so detached, because I hear one in particular them talking about “those people”, he is talking about ME.

For hundreds of years we have been using a divisive term that we call “race” to distinguish characteristics of others and to define our lineage. Some of us use race as a pejorative and distinctive mechanism to establish our superiority over others and thus to make ourselves feel better. But this selfish approach is one that none of us should ever use.
