I’m testing out the chaise-lounge-lapability of this Smart Keyboard Folio for the 12.9″ iPad Pro 2021. Gotta throw all the words in there. At some point I’ll make a video about why I went with this instead of the Magic Keyboard. (And am still tapping the screen like it’s 2017 instead of using a sweet sweet trackpad.)
Actually I can start with that for the ramblings.
… got distracted by Twitter just now and drew this thing which is supposed to be about how “visualization” can mean something in your head and something on paper and (WITH THE POWER OF DRAWING) you can turn one into the other.
Even better than that, it feeds back—you’ll always get more ideas while sketching.
Another nice thing: the chaise-lounge-lapability is pretty good so far, even with sketching! Didn’t have to adjust the iPad while drawing, though I did just need to lightly hold it in place with my left hand.
(Which I can’t show without taking a photo with my mouth.)
In any case. I’ll be heading off to some campsite for the weekend.

On second thought, I’ll leave it at home.
It’s exciting to be packing the backpack regularly again. Wait, I mean. It’s exciting to pack the GORUCK GR1 again.
There’s that Louie CK bit about how we use words like amazing and genius for the most regular things. On one hand, there’s some of that with how I just used exciting. On the other hand, a year ago we were still using both hands to wipe down our grocery deliveries with sanitizer.
So it is (actually) exciting.
