Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Monday, 2020.10.26
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which
permit this norm to be exceeded - here and there, now and then - are the work of
an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost
always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept
from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people
then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck."

What A Difference A Door Makes


I’ve wanted a new front door for 14 years. It was always on the plan…for next year. It closed. It locked…mostly. And there was always some other priority. Usually something cancer related. So it stayed. Today, that changed. Before…

And after (but still untrimmed and unpainted)…

For the first time ever, my front hall is filled with natural light in the evening. It makes it look and feel more like a home than it has in near 4 years. Maybe there is hope yet for this house of busted dreams.
