The Daily Cloud: September 3

When COVID shut down the world eighteen months ago, I began a little project. “Began” makes it sound like it was planned, but it was really just something I stumbled into.

I took pictures of clouds.

It wasn’t a daily thing, but it was certainly a semi-regular thing. A couple of times a week.

Then it fell off in the last six months. Work has a lot to do with that.

With the office reopening next week, I’ll post occasional cloud pictures… beginning with one from the office, since I had to go into today to work on the UK order form.

I was looking a bit feral — my last haircut was in January 2020, after I knew of COVID, before the world shut down — so I got it taken care of this afternoon.

In my office at Diamond

Earlier in the summer, I bought a t-shirt featuring a Greg Capullo image of Cable. I’d have bought and worn this t-shirt in 1994, so that I bought and am wearing it twenty-seven years later says something about how little my tastes have changed.
