How to Get out of Your Own Head

I often go with my friend and her chihuahua Abby to Abby’s favorite place in the world, which is a large open prairie field at Beaudry Park. It’s the only place she can run around all she wants without encountering her least favorite things: other dogs, and human children. Sometimes there’s a line of cylindrical haybales at the edge of the big field. One time, my friend stuffed a chicken treat into one of the haybales, low to the ground so Abby would find it. After retrieving it, Abby went ...

Cancer and a life cut horribly short

Back in April, I mentioned the very sad news about my wife’s terminal cancer and the limited amount of time she had left. Heartbreakingly, that time has now been and gone. Tough beyond belief, and stoic right until the very end, Akiko died last week — her life cut horribly short at the age of just 43. The world keeps turning of course, but it’s without a doubt a darker place without the light of kindness and fun Akiko brought to it. A shadow that obviously looms very large in my life, as I lost ...

Fired Covid-19 Data Manager is Now Running for Congress (slashdot)

Florida's fired Department of Health data manager Rebekah Jones lost access to her 400,000 followers on Twitter last month — which she'd been using to criticize Florida governor Ron DeSantis for downplaying the severity of the state's Covid-19 crisis. Then Jones announced she'd be running for Congress. "This also means, under Desantis' recently signed social media law, I get to fine Twitter $250K per day until my account is restored starting July 1." Orlando Weekly reports: After a media frenz...

CUBALAYA - Introducing the Fair Chase 6-8 Weight Click Pawl

Longtime readers know that I have a real soft spot for click and pawl fly reels.  I have a collection of a few dozen vintage Martin and J.W. Young fly reels and then a few more modern click and pawl fly reels from everyone from Hardy, Orvis, and The Spey Company.  I like the way they work, sound, and they are a neat match to many fiberglass fly rods.  A relative newcomer to the game, Cubalaya, made waves a year or so ago by creating the Fair Chase click and pawl fly reel which starts on the tame...

Can you see who views your TikTok videos? No, but here's what you can see on the social media app

NurPhoto / Contributor/Getty Images You can't see who views your TikTok videos, as the app lacks such a feature. TikTok offers users the ability to see how many times their video has been watched, but does not show which individual users or accounts view it. Early TikTok users were able to see who viewed their profile, but TikTok is one of many social media apps whose policies and features are continually changing.

How to Stay Focused and Avoid Distractions

Today’s episode kicks off with an audience question from Bobby, a creative asking about how to stay focused and finish projects. Much of this question boils down to aligning goals, values and actions. What I mean by that is that if you say you are going to do something, do it. It might be uncomfortable, difficult or humbling, but once you get started, the angst of feeling stuck goes away, replaced by new sense of exploration and growth. The last thing you want is regret around your biggest passi...

Why I Don’t Use Lightroom’s Saturation Slider To Boost Color

This is another one of those questions I get a lot, and the answer is more straightforward than you might think. First, here’s the difference between the two (which helps answer the question): Saturation: Dragging this slider to the right makes all the colors in your image more colorful. Vibrance: I think of this as “Smart Saturation” because it has some serious math behind it. In short, this one slider does three things: (1) It takes colors that are dull in your image it boo...

Choosing Courage

WITHOUT A DOUBT, courage matters—and we need more of it. Courage to see the right thing done. Courage to present a new idea. Courage to innovate and grow. Courageous acts can be risky—career-wise, socially, and sometimes physically. But if it weren’t risky, it wouldn’t be courageous. Acts of courage are worth considering to not only help others and yourself but to avoid regret. Acting courageously can help to solve problems, avert disasters and open the doors for opportunities. It also means ta...
