|First day back from paternity leave blues

It was good spending time with Izzy. Asha too, though at this stage she doesn't really hold up her end of the conversation like Asha does.
I am drifting. Life is good but I need some direction.
Lesser resolutions for the year:
- Build a snowman with Izzy
- Grow something from a seed with Izzy
- Sidewalk stencils (w/ Dav?)
Izzy was screaming about something the other day.
IZZY: whine whine scream scream
ME: Stop that! You catch more flies with honey than... by yelling at them. (?)
Need to practice my hoary wisdom cliches cos I'm pretty sure that's not how it goes
I got some Sonos wireless speakers. It's pretty exciting even though I can't play music loud that often. Getting frustrated with the limits of cloud catalogs though. A lot of early Aphex Twin stuff isn't on Spotify, or iTunes, or anywhere. (Other than YouTube that is)
YouTube has the most complete catalog. I wish they'd just become a music service. You can't autoplay playlists on mobile (meaning you have to hit play for each song in the playlist). I think they purposely made it this way so you can't use YouTube as a music service.
I got to put together my own Aphex Twin rarities collection. The song above will be on there. I think the technological limitations of the time were a big part of his sound. The kids today can make any kind of sound, but that means you don't get a particular sound like in AFX days.
Not sure how to find the time to start writing again. I dunno. It's true, it ends not with a bang but a whimper
