Oh my, yes. It’s amazing how long we can overlook such things!

Argh, Martin — sending you all good wishes and hopes for WAY better than this!

I’m just now looking into it, so I have no idea yet. Will let you know if I figure it out.

I’ve gotten to spend the last week-plus in a house on the shore of a lake far from nearly all demands other than revising [_Generous Thinking_]$$http://generousthinking\.hcommons\.org$$. It’s been blissful.

A few immediate issues popped up in my micro experiment: markdown wasn’t enabled on the blog so posts there were, well, in markdown. And I’ve had to add a filter so that email followers don’t these posts. This one is a test to see if I’ve fixed these issues or not.

Okay, it appears that I’ve managed to get http://micro.blog posts connected to the aside post type and the micro category at http://kfitz.info, while ensuring that email subscribers to the blog don’t get these updates filling their inboxes, AMA.

I absolutely did — thank you so much for recommending it!

Thanks SO much for this. I just hit the chunk of my manuscript that’s thinking about the problem of empathy, and this is an enormous help! I’ll look forward to seeing how it develops!

We drove into this place on the northern coast of the Upper Peninsula two weeks ago tomorrow, and there was not a leaf to be found. Over the course of three days this week, everything went green. It’s the edge of summer here now. I so regret not having before and after pictures.

Sending love and solidarity to the women of Ireland. #HomeToVote #RepealThe8th #ItsTime

Big Bay! ❤️

Heading back home after an amazing two weeks spent writing and reading and staring at the lake. Just the fast reboot I needed to make the transition to summer.

Our lake house, not incidentally, came with its own bear.

Har har har.

Hey, fabulous! Congratulations!

I mean, you wouldn’t want to have to get your own.

I have somehow managed to achieve a state of vacation equilibrium that I previously thought mythical: Not a day too short. Not a day too long. Perfectly restful. So glad to be heading home.
