I’m doing social media again after an about five-year absence. But I’m doing it on my terms. House of Boyd is staying. Facebook is still dead to me. Twitter is back: @jfboyd.

Wanting to travel again very soon, but it’s tricky to manage schedules. Might be doing some bike riding this weekend, but I’m doing social things on Saturday. Something to look forward to, but I’ll have to do it from introvertland.

This is one of those nights where things seem absolutely perfect, so much so you almost can’t believe you are the person experiencing the events you’re seeing. The weather is close to perfect, and I took my girlfriend down to Gray’s Lake in the Sebring convertible. It wasn’t too busy, and the lights from the bridge were snappy and on point. Then we drove around and listened to ’80s pop while commenting on everything we saw. Sometimes, you really need to recognize being here right now, and you need to take advantage of being right here, right now.

Somewhere out there, billions of light years away, some alien is taking a picture of us from far, far in the future. They’ll see how perfect things are now, but the lines will be blurred and fuzzy.

I’m trying out a new design. I hope you like it. It’s a WordPress template, I’ve officially realized I’ll never be a real web designer any more. I’ll try to keep this from getting too “Jim’s Journal”, though.

First of all, alive. Doing well. Glad to have gotten through the First Covid Era unscathed. Vaccinated. Knocking on wood.

My job keeps me VERY busy, but it’s gotten back to a ‘normal’ kind of busy rather than MY HAIR IS ON FIRE kind of busy. I was fortunate to get to celebrate the beginning of my vaccinated redemption by going to St. Louis and bicycling around on Kinetica like a crazy man.

I ate in restaurants. I bought cookies. I interacted with locals. I was staying in a swank-ass hotel within a block of the Gateway Arch. Life is good. This weekend, going to Iowa City. Going to do more biking. Hit me up if you’re reading this.
