136. Up

Waiting in the cinema for an old friend, and a showing of National Live Theater direct from London, which should make me feel all cultivated, pleasantly aloof and stylish. Instead I feel like a vagabond of sorts.

I biked up here from my rent-an-office-space, the parka not being quite right because the weather is in-between autumn and spring still; and my general physical condition is below average.… Read more

133. Breathing

As you know if you’ve been reading a bit here, I’ve decided to start writing again.

Not on a novel, but on a … short novel. Something in the vicinity of 30K-ish words, which seems to be what I can handle without grinding to a halt.

I am often amazed of how much the world appears like … a mosaic.

It’s not black. It’s not white. It’s not grey.… Read more

129. Seven Things I Appreciate About Time Passing

What a morning – writing while trying to fix a clogged toilet, fix breakfast for my pregnant girlfriend, fix shopping, fix everything. But I got written a bit for my Story. And soon on to the accounting. I’m glad I delayed that last part until I had the Story-bit done.

Felt like doing another list-reflection post, then about time and Ageing.… Read more
