This was in a recent New York Times article by John Markoff. I think it was about artificial intelligence. Christ. Do I have any brain cells left?? I read the article, what? Yesterday?? Anyway, Markoff was writing about making predictions, and how everyone thought things were going to happen a lot sooner and he quotes futurist Paul Saffo saying, “never mistake a clear view for a short distance.”
I have to start making a list of ” truest true things ever,” and begin with that. Brilliant. Don’t you wish you were a smart person? I wish I was a smart person. Ugh. Damnit. I forgot that I’m trying to stop noticing my failings and instead focus on the positive. Well, I noticed that I noticed my failings, that’s good. Can’t stop if you don’t even notice when you’re doing it!
And now, a cute cat picture.
