Happy Friday!​
The cars wound round and round the parking lot of the converted fairgrounds. I felt anxious, excited, nervous as I inched towards my turn.

I was corralled into this enormous warehouse. As I pulled up to my spot I felt like I could burst with elation.

"Can I see your ID?"
"First dose or second dose?"
"Right arm or left?"

And that was it. In what felt like 2 seconds I'd received my first dose of the Pfizer Covid vaccine!

I immediately felt massive relief and gratitude towards all the workers there. I couldn't help myself from repeatedly calling out "Thank you!" to all the volunteers.

As I sat in the parking lot for the allotted 15 minutes, I felt myself comedown from the rush. Like the crash after a concert.

Then just calm, peace. Finally, there's an end in sight.

How NOT to be screen vampire

My latest piece is a departure from the future, instead it's about dealing with our technological present.

"Coffee. I drag myself to work. More coffee. Meeting with Cheryl from accounting. Even more coffee. Ugh, too much coffee, bathroom. Coffee. Work on a project plan. Coffee?

Come 11 pm though, I’m completely awake, watching hilarious videos on YouTube. I’m not tired at all.

Most people know they have a sleep problem, but they don’t know how to fix it."

As always, look to the future and don't underestimate the change in the next decade:

“We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten. Don't let yourself be lulled into inaction.” - Bill Gates
