I do this manually each Saturday, collating most of the tweets I made the past week at twitter.com/disquiet, which I think of as my public notebook. Some tweets pop up in expanded form or otherwise on Disquiet.com sooner. It’s personally informative to revisit the previous week of thinking out loud. This isn’t a full accounting. Often there are, for example, conversations on Twitter that don’t really make as much sense out of the context of Twitter itself.

▰ As often happens when an emergency vehicle’s siren approaches, I listen for it to disappear as eventually it passes by and then heads further away. Except this time it didn’t disappear. It stopped quite suddenly. Because there was a car accident right outside.
▰ Walking inside my home with noise-cancelling headphones on after a call ends. Life ends up like one of those scenes in a movie when they replace “actual” silence with digital silence (sometimes due to artistic intent, often due to a lack of thought about sensory reality).
▰ I’m more of a New York Times mini-crossword guy.
▰ And on that note, have a great weekend.

- Look through your record collection to find an album that isn’t on streaming services.
- Listen to your meals.
