A storm blew over our country this night and wrecked some things, but not much compared to other parts of the world. It made me think again about how grateful we should be for this geographical location, and how I should be more grateful of the assets I have, instead of bemoaning what I have not.… Read more
Got the crime website version 1.0 finished and it felt good, even if it is not completed yet and I have not been paid yet and all sorts of other things are not getting done.
But there is still a lot of satisfaction in making a piece of work that you know you’ve done your best with.… Read more

The most efficient way to clean up is to throw stuff out.… Read more
As I get older I discover continually that patience and determination are some of the most important qualities one can develop, and today was no exception.
Simply put, I was thinking about when and how to market this blog more, so it actually gets some readers.
Then I was thinking – again – about how little energy and time I feel I have for this, right now.… Read more
I read on a webpage from Brooklyn Academy that:

Saw Spider-Man: Homecoming today with an old friend and didn’t know whether to feel amused or annoyed that this was the 3rd actor to play Spider-Man since 2002.
I know there was something about movie rights, but overall the movie is a symptom of the tendency in Hollywood to not create something new but just rehash the old, tested and tried.… Read more
This is something I regularly think about and today was no exception. So why not bring the discussion out again?
I’ve been a vegetarian-ish on and off for 22 years now. I do eat meat (from land animals) on some occasions, like when I travel abroad. I’ve eaten fish since 2004, and eggs and milk, etc.… Read more
But I have the feeling it was a very good, ordinary day, where no one (I knew) died and the world didn’t blow up, and I was with my 4-week old son and his mum at home.
If I can’t remember in details, what happened on a particular day, when writing about it several days hence, then I fall back to the position that this is how it must have been.… Read more
