A low winter sun in a clear blue sky illuminates a sandy beach with the silhouettes of people walking by the sea. An unoccupied lifeguard tower painted with the number five at the edge of a sandy beach under a clear blue sky. A headland next to a beach with shallow water making a reflective surface under a clear blue sky. A lifeguard tower in front of some rocks reflected in the shallow water on a sandy beach.

Jamie smiling as he rolls up his shirt sleeve to show his F-hole tattoo. Jamie in winter time, looking stylish with sunglasses and a scarf.

I’ve been feeling exactly what Colly articulates here:

I’m aware that smart friends still tweet passing thoughts without a care, and I can’t understand why. Some seem happy to repost damning articles about the situation and then carry on tweeting without a care.

It was, I believe, said in anger but not in malice.

I’m just kind of stewing on the way that, of all the comparisons to make, it’s the one that gets increasingly more insulting as events unfold.

A few weeks back, a friend likened something I said to what Elon Musk would say.

They retracted, but with each of Musk’s unhinged proclamations, the insult grows like a virus.

I’m honestly not sure our friendship can get past it.

Fourteen years ago on this day I wrote about how one of my Flickr photos ended up in the first Marvel movie:
