What I’m doing now

This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.

Updated January 9, 2024, from my home in Washington State.

Logic Pro

Beginning to formally learn Logic Pro on my M1 MacBook Pro. I've been interested in music production, music composition and electronic music for some years and never given much effort to learn and practice. I'm now studying, starting with Logic Pro For Dummies. I think this will be a great, simple basis for moving forward with learning this software.

Yoga Teacher Training

I've been deepening my yoga practice as part of my efforts to manage recurrent migraine headaches. I'm doing an online Yoga Teacher Training. It is self-paced and offers daily virtual yoga classes streamed from India. The training will allow me to become certified as a Yoga Alliance 200 YTT teacher. It will also allow certification as a Yoga Protocol Instructor through the Yoga Certification Board, Ministry of Ayurveda, Yoga, and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH), Government of India. UPDATE: I'm 36% of the way through this course. That means I've completed about 72 hours and have 128 left to go.

Deep Dive on Compassion

Diving into the science and various understandings of compassion.

SKY Breath Training

I learned the technique of SKY Breath during a 3-day workshop. I found the pranayama (breathing) techniques helpful and by the time we were done with SKY Breath, I felt very calm and relaxed. Now integrating this into my daily practice.

Sold My First Business

After building a profitable business over four years we decided to sell it. Read more here.

Planning For World Travel

After selling our business we're ready to explore and find our passion and purpose again. Some places we're looking into:

Spanish Lessons using Pimsleur

Starting again on the Pimsleur Latin American Spanish audio lessons. Although I took two-years of Spanish in high school, that's equivalent to one year of college Spanish lessons.

Tech Independence

Using the Tech Independence guide put together by Derek Sivers, I'm working towards owning my own data. So far I've registered a domain (this one), backing up my Documents from my computer to the server, and created a web server and simple website. I've also implemented Radicale for calendar and address books. Once I'm feeling comfortable with these things I'll be adding email with verification.
