I forgot how to use mutt

I like mutt(1) but it's been so long since I've used it. Maybe I'll post my .muttrc at some point.

Under New Management

There's been a flurry of activity! I have no idea what is going on! I'm on a listserv but it's throttled by Fastmail or some such.

Been a Minute

I hope you're all doing really well, though. So much has happened since we met. Find me.

Out of Place

This is a still from Menschen am Sonntag, a film released in 1930.

People in historical photographs and movies can feel very distant and foreign, but you would not think twice if you saw this person around town. 84 years and they do not seem out of place or time.

We maintain a Mentoring wiki page at work. If you want to mentor others, add your name to the list. If you need a mentor, ping someone on the list.

I sought a mentor through this setup but it didn't really stick. We chatted and identified some things I should work on, mostly around building self-improvement into my schedule. But like all those self-improvement projects that are never a priority, keeping up with a mentor was just one more thing for the backburner.

I don't really want a mentor right now. I want peers. I want a group of folks who are struggling and sharing and lifting each other up. I'd like it to be coworkers but it doesn't have to be. But forming connections is hard.
