flurries swirl I sit patient
my self becomes clear
My dear snow globe mind

TL;DR The sound through either of these headphones is fine, solid noise-cancelling, fairly comfortable, the software has notable issues and my user experience with both has been frustrating; UX a bit worse with the Sony, call quality is bad with the Sony especially for the person on the other end of the call.
Update, seven months later: I’m definitely not happy with either of them, though I enjoy several parts of life much better with good noise-cancelling headphones on. If I had to do it over again, I would choose the Bose for slightly better UX and significantly better phone calls (particularly for the experience of the person on the other end, blocking out unwanted background noise on my end).
I don’t need answers the same way I used to. I still have all the questions. I’m okay with that. I still love to have answers and I still would rather know than not know. I still feel I’m an invasive species, however it’s very selective now; I’m disinclined to pry.
I still believe in truth and love the idea of it, though I know that truth and reality are not the same, and truths are subject to all the lenses — perspective and time and the beholder and the writer and the accompanying foundational truths and compounded truths.
Orson Scott Card has a newish book: Lost and Found, and I’ve been missing the Pathfinder series, so this was a happy. Then partway into it, I was having such a good time, I decided to put it off and finally start the Mither Mages series …I’m enjoying The Lost Gate AND and! it plays in Washington DC in familiar towns and streets AND and! it goes on to play in Yellow Springs, Ohio ! Xenia! of all places! Is it going to Kyoto next? I’m a happy.
Happy twenty years, Ferrydust! Sometime this year — twenty years back — you were conceived and created; you’ve evolved, died, and revived a few times, and you’re still a good friend/space to me and I appreciate that a lot. Once upon a time someone called you the girliest thing I own; I wonder if that’s still true. Either way, thank you <3
Similar experiences, different habits and responses. We are meaning machines. Love is the bridge, choice/personal-responsibility is the power. Happiness is a favorite habit and breathing is a new one of which I will be world+ class. If we’ve really learned it, we can teach it. Best is living it, loving it, together.
