Reflection

As a node operator, my understanding of Bitcoin has evolved significantly. A theoretical framework has been transformed into lived, practical experience. I monitor the Mempool to check on my Lightning channel status. I engage with other node operators to create liquidity swaps. I scroll through 1ML and Amboss to find other Lightning peers. I collect sats for routing payments. It is a vivid demonstration of my previous notion; that Bitcoin, and by extension its timechain, may just be the the final word on financial freedom.

Optimism

A Very Public Rebute
June 12, 2021
In writing to build, I mentioned about 'seeing the world as it is, and not as it ought to be'. What a crock of shit. That is not building better. Or thinking better. It is certainly not progression. By limiting myself to what I can observe only in the here and now, I deny myself the joy of dreaming. And as an eternal optimist, that just ain't gonna cut it.
