❤️💣 Mission: Try Something New

Try Something New


The Background

I spent this past weekend experimenting with new AI tools, both for fun and for work (well, mostly for fun, with just a tiny bit of work). It's been a long time since I shut down all the noise and distraction, put on some headphones, and just went into Creator Mode for a few hours. If you're interested in what I built, I wrote up a brief summary here.

OKAY, since you're begging me, I'll give you a hint! It was a steampunk town that was the center for all knowledge, and therefore had books absolutely everywhere, including built into the design of buildings, homes, furniture, etc. I generated dozens of example images in pixel art format. Here's a typical kitchen in someone's home. If you don't want to visit this place, just go ahead and unsubscribe right now, k? ;)

The Mission

This week, take 10 minutes to give back to others in your world in a new way - something you haven't really done before.

Maybe you're not someone who volunteers - sign up for something.

Maybe you've never sat down to compose a handwritten letter to someone - write one.

Maybe you don't say "I love you" often enough - say it and experience how it feels.

Maybe you rarely give of your time - offer a gift of service to someone.

After you complete the challenge, send a quick reply to this email and let me know what you did, if it's something you're comfortable sharing. I'd love to hear from you, say hello, and maybe turn a few of your activities into images like this, just for fun . . .

Love Bomb

a project by Nate St. Pierre

Every Tuesday I come up with an idea to make a difference for someone in a small, personal, creative way, then I send out that idea as a mission assignment to everyone in our group. Over the next week, we all spend 10 minutes to accomplish it in our own way for people in our own lives.

Morning, friends! I was doing the Love Bomb thing during the latter half of 2023, and then I took a break for the Christmas holiday but never came back. I ended up having to deal with a few issues at once (and still am, actually): loss of a job, some personal health stuff, some family things, etc. I'm still in a place where I need to take care of myself and focus on bigger things, so I'm going to do that. Love Bomb will be on indefinite hiatus for the time being. I appreciate you all being a...

Today (Monday night as I write this) is Christmas Day, and next week around this time is New Year's Day, so I'm taking the time off from love bombs. After that it'll be the end of the holiday season, and into the teeth of the long, cold winter. God willing we'll all see it through to the other side together :) It's been another weird year for me, full of stops and starts and big personal/career changes and more than a little stress. The kinds of things most people go through every five years...

From the Beginning The Background I just got back from taking a walk with my brother during a break in my work. It was a nice piece of downtime during this very busy month where I'm transitioning myself into a new (much more fun and creative) career as an AI developer. It made me realize that he's been there through all of my twists and turns, ups and downs, and personal growth over the years, and I'm thankful for him. The Mission This week, spend 10 minutes to acknowledge someone who was...
