can you me read?
Trying to translate my Dutch handwriting to English with Google Lens. Ending up as the translator myself, as I change my handwriting and sentence so Google Lens can actually understand me.
Reading and editing Calm by Tim Parks, while feeling far from calm. Trying to express this feeling in the book.
