Garden, 17:51


After an afternoon of teaching online I step out into the garden to look at something other than a screen.

I have noticed that working in front of the computer all day makes my face worryingly red. Research (of the googling for thirty seconds kind) alerts me to the fact that some people seem more sensitive to ultra violet light than others, and some monitors emit more ultra violet light than others.

Before I closed the computer for the day I “researched” again and iscovered that Windows 10 goes some way towards having a built-in cure. I switched my monitor to night mode, which changed the colour balance and eridicated most of the blu (ie ultra violet) from the screen.

In the garden I look at two helmi lillies growing in a pot halfway up a pole. After that I will walk to buy milk.
