Just for a few minutes. After some meetings at the shared work space for upcoming entrepreneurs, which I used to frequent while I was still getting paid my insurance for unemployment.
Before I just went out and became an entrepreneur…
Anyway, I had met up with a guy who does communications in the life sciences and a lot of other stuff.… Read more
What a difference it makes.
We suspected he had stomach problems, because of something Char ate – perhaps egg plants – that then ‘came through’ to him in the milk.
It’s not as hocus pocus as it sounds, that some foods eaten by mothers, really irritate their breast-feeding children. What is hocus pocus is people trying to convince you that strawberries, for example, are bad for all babies.… Read more
I’ve been thinking more and more about using July for prepping my next historical live-talk about the real Robinson Crusoe – Scottish sailor, Alexander Selkirk. That’s going to be the deal, more or less, but the truth is … if I had all the time in the world, I would like to do several of those talks, about historical persons who fascinate me.… Read more
I found this old piece that I wrote last year after hearing about another old music idol of mine dying. I felt like taking it up again, for no particular reason. Maybe except one: The feeling I get from re-reading it reminds me that I have to do better.
I want that feeling more.… Read more
Time to be philosophical – not in the least because the day has been anything but, with breadwinner-work and baby-work.
Okay, here goes:
Happiness and peace taken together equals a sense of … beauty.

I stopped and just closed the door.… Read more
with baby, visits, house-stuff and too little time for making money or just making some time for oneself.
And yet, when the house was quiet, I decided to take out the drawing pad. I had almost given up on my ‘I’m Not Scared-project’.
But now I was drawing for the first time in months.… Read more
Okay, time to sum up where I’ve been for the last 100 days and where I want to go for the next.
Deep realizations first
In short: I’ve realized – now more than ever – that I want to be free of any drive to be famous, rich – to have ‘position’.… Read more
Today I took a break between clients and went to the comic shop I’ve frequented since I was 12.
Don’t go there much for comics anymore, just good chats with one of the old employees. A friendly version of Comic Book Guy from Simpsons, oh yes.
We talked about my latest live-talk, upcoming and planned, about another historical character that fascinates me:
Alexander Selkirk – the real Robinson Crusoe.… Read more
So another few days went buy working for Annoying Big Client.
