Relearning Vim: practice, practice, practice…

It is something of a mystery to me why I have this sudden, strong urge to relearn and begin using the Vim text editor again. It has been many years since text editors were tools I used on a regular basis. And I’m not involved in nor am I imagining myself becoming involved in a project where Vim would be required or even desired.

Yet,… here I am, retraining my fingers and reshaping those thought patterns common to folks who hang out in the Vim universe.

Maybe it has something to do with the season of Lent, a time for letting go of non-essentials and refocusing on what’s most important. Or maybe it’s a consequence of my disgust at so much Fake News being promoted by formerly trusted institutions, and a desire to embrace something real, and true, and basic. I don’t know.

Whatever. I’ve got tutorials to work through, and practice, practice, practice to do. And it feels good. 🙂
