Sculpture, what does it mean?

A good night. 🎵

Good Enough is taking a summer break, but we squeezed out one last newsletter for all of our superfans.

Paradox of choice over here as I try to plan our southern Utah itinerary. Heading out for 9 days toward the end of the month and there are just so many options, and some require gearing up. Off the table is Angels Landing, to which my wife said, “I’m not taking my kids on that.”

Camp Cucamonga, a TV movie from 1990, is not available for streaming anywhere and my wife is not having it. (That’s quite a cast!)

Our roof was replaced last week while we were gone on a marching band trip. The roofers did not do an adequate job cleaning up. Unfortunately one of these ended up in my youngest’s foot. So she got to make a surprise Fourth of July emergency room visit for a tetanus shot.

It was a trip with challenges, but the kids had a blast and they got experiences like this. Success!

Wet theme park conditions on this very trying “vacation” as a chaperone.

This is not a vacation.

Our silliest Good Enough newsletter yet. It doesn’t feel like a day to be silly, but maybe that’s okay.

I think Observations on 6 years of journaling might have helped me to crack the code of this thing I need to do for myself, which is daily journaling. I’ve never believed I could do it at night. Now I believe that’s when I need to do it. 🤞that tool research doesn’t bog me down.

Oliver Burkeman’s latest newsletter includes this bit. I’m happy to read someone agreeing with my estimation of the actual amount of expertise out there in the world. This is my personal way to handle feeling like an imposter:

Imposter syndrome? Worse than you think – because you think the issue is that you don’t yet have the qualifications to hold your own among your colleagues, when in fact the truth is that everyone is winging it, all the time, and that if you’re ever going to make your unique contribution to the world, you’re going to have to do it in a state of unreadiness.

News flash: Aaron Copland is pretty good. 🎵

Finished up The Revenge of Analog by David Sax, featuring @patrickrhone and @rohdesign. Good eats!📚

Related to that prior post, take a look at this video/audio toybox, Xorberax Visualizer. How fun is that? 🔗

Sometimes these folks get to be a little much, but it is true that Poolsuite FM is an inspiration for what we’re doing with Good Enough. I think each week or two I’ll try to share other inspirations. These may be things found in the past or things just discovered that same day.

It’s marching band season.

Some good spam asking for blog links:

I stumbled upon your article here micro.bjhess.com/page/3/. Insightful topic!

🎵 Hard (2022) by Tove Styrke

Pop that brings you back. Gated drums on the intro track make you think Phil Collins is involved. “Start Walking” and “Show Me Love” also slap. h/t @zioibi

Taking a break as the oldest wraps up her college orientation.

Friday. Jack White. 🎵

🍿 Wrath of Man (2021)

It was pretty good…Guy Ritchie without the Guy Ritchie. Not sure why rogerebert.com gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, but it was good!

Victor Wooten is amazing and this is amazing. I should have taken about five pages of notes on this interview.
