I keep having these recurring dreams, of a girl I knew in high school. We only met once afterwards, at a reunion party in 2003.
Then … she vanished. Only to pop up last year on Facebook.
We had a rocky relationship back then, in high school. To say the least.… Read more
I first received a copy of the story in 1998.
I had arrived with my then very-new girlfriend, in Lima, Peru.
It was back when you still wrote letters, and I got this package from the local post office and boy – I was in the 7th heaven.
A real letter from home – with a story, and … well, it was just such a great thing to receive so far away.… Read more
Today I felt I got clearer on the ideal customer profile for my new company. I suspect the 4-5 customers or prospects I have picked up in the limited entrepreneur programme this past month has had something to do with that …
Good enough, so who is it then?
He or she has a business and is earning some money selling services or stuff, often not quite enough to live from it but not so little so that it’s a dead end.… Read more
It just occurred to me today …
If this blog is supposed to go on until 27 July 2055 (barring a global extinction event) then …
… what will happen of major events in my own life until that day?
Of course, I’ve thought about that from time to time, especially now that Jay is on the way.… Read more
The rivers of the day have flowed a bit further towards their known destinations:
Merchant account in bank – check
Talk about how to get a ‘good’ birth, and what to do if not – check
Worked on company website (asset building) and marketed it – check
Trained, as I increasingly do, how to approach the day mindfully, especially its dull chores – check
And more.… Read more
So today I spent a lot of time marketing my new company, and nothing really happened except that I spend a lot of time. And began to doubt that I would ever make it.
I guess the only sane response to such feelings is to grit your teeth.… Read more
What causes ‘the storms’ (problems) in our lives that make us unhappy and restless and upset?
The main culprit is the view that happiness is conditional on something outside yourself.
E.g. on getting that job or earning that money or finding that particular partner, and all at the expense of so many other things.… Read more
I kind of off-day.
I argued about my fee with a client to my live-talks on historical persons.
I felt I was writing into Limbo sending out pitches for people to buy from my new company.
I have now gotten the approval from both the insurance company and the official company register.… Read more
Today, we’ve cleaned up in the apartment and done some plans for how to rearrange everything to fit, once Jay is there.
Cleaning up and fitting things in your living for a new, expanded function.
Seems like as good an occasion as any to talk more about purpose.
Purpose is about your feeling – however it has come to you – that you are here for a reason.… Read more

If I remember correctly, there’s a saying that ‘every thought counts’ or something to that effect.
That’s a figure of speech, I suppose.
But if I also remember correctly in this, according to at least some beliefs there’s some kind of collective consciousness in which all thoughts go or get, well, collected.… Read more
I’ve been thinking about time. And how we think about time.
If I think that I have only ‘so many years left’ I am constantly preoccupied with what I have left – although I can never truly know. So … maybe I should not.
I mean, it may be a lot more than I think.… Read more
I’ve been thinking lately of how big a place rejuvenation has come to take in my life.
You see, we all have our ‘drug’ that rejuvenates. And we all need it.
Mine is reading books about battleships and then some comics every evening – that and a good whiskey. Right after I’ve done everything else.… Read more
