I was starting to think I would never see another Half-Life game. But here it is and it's such an unreal experience. Valve outdid themselves again with this one.

"Twirling round with this familiar parable
Spinning, weaving round each new experience
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing." What an experience. Tool, they have been just that in my life. Through their music I am able to  reconnect and rediscover myself. It centers me, grounds me, gives me perspective and clarity that allows me to open my mind to new ideas. I don't know how else to describe it. To you, they may just be another rock band that you probably don't care about. And that's okay. We all have our own tools that we use throughout life. Be it reading, praying, creating, or leaning on the people closest to you. We all have different ones. Some we put down and forget about. Others we discover as life goes on. Whatever they my be, love them, use them, don't lose them. What's your Tool?

Yep, that tiny black dot in the upper right is Mercury. Watching this transit blew my mind and made me feel really small. The universe is amazing.

A nice fall drive on the Parkway. AVL -> Craggy Gardens. Blink and you'll miss it, but catch the bear cub about halfway through the time lapse.
We didn't win Halloween Harry Potter Trivia night, but we sure had fun trying. Live long and prosper 🖖
Yes, I caved and listened to the leaks but no, I don't feel bad because I've already pre-ordered a physical copy. 
Bless you, u/CircleOfN9ne.
