More Floating

So, this is not a blog post, because I still don’t know what I’m doing here. Yet.

I’m still thinking about the idea of “blogging” and if I want to keep doing it… I just don’t know. I need to think more and, frankly, I haven’t had a lot of time to think lately. Herein lies my problem.

What time I have had, I’ve spent floating. So…

There you go. I really like this picture of my life…

(I even took my coworker from Montreal along this time; he needed less gravity in his life, too…)

Working on the thinking and the ideas for what comes next still; just, in the meantime…

Floating.

Floating

This weekend, Marlene and I nicknamed our new favorite swimming hole in the Sierra Nevada the “Zen Garden”.

It really is a glassy, zen paradise; float on it for a few moments, and you can’t help but transcend into a type of nirvana. It’s been positively therapeutic for me, surfing its smooth surface these last few trips to the mountains.

However, the best part about my job is now kicking into high-gear, and starting in August I’ll be off on another crazy adventure that will reach its grand finale at Adobe MAX 2017 in Las Vegas this October.

On Friday, we announced the remaining Semifinalists in this year’s Adobe Design Achievement Awards:

Hexed

Earlier this year, I legitimately believed I was cursed.

I was quite certain someone put a hex on me – somebody was out there, who I’d carelessly wronged in some terrible, terrible way, and they had a little Lisa voodoo doll, and they were just poking… and poking… and poking…

Pouring glasses of water over my doll-head.. Continue reading

Inspiro

This morning, Trent sent me an artificial intelligence inspiration generator called InspiroBot.

And, with it, this golden nugget it generated:

TRUTH.

I’m not kidding, this is the sentiment it just happened to output this morning, as Trent and I were lamenting going back to work after quite possibly the very best vacation we’ve ever taken together.

What the hell, InspiroBot! Pull back on the intelligence! Turn down the future! Continue reading
