A year of blogging, every single day – how about that? Will I now get rich and famous? Or what are the prospects?
I think first of all it is important to note that it hasn’t been an entire year, only 365 days – or posts. I started 6 December 2016.… Read more
Lots of work today for an old client who returned to buy some more help for his webshop, so that is not important only good. What is important is trying to sum up some good observations from my recent Looking Back-exercise (which also includes a great deal of looking forward).
Here it is then … a very key part of my life right now – the reason I am doing The Blog:
It is blogging that gives me the sense of strength; that I reflect and feel deeply about something with a view to the silver lining.… Read more
We went back to our old apartment today to clean up, after having had Jay checked one final time at the hospital for some muscle problems that made him kind of cramp too much to the right side; probably a result of his hard birth.
It was nice – that Jay is on the right track to functioning normally, with that.… Read more
We’re still in the other city, just taking walks, washing clothes, shopping and looking after Jay.
And thinking about when and how I can get back to earning money, what’s going to happen with my mother and family, and burning the batteries helping with Jay because Char’s hand is still bad.… Read more
I haven’t been too proud of this week’s blogging, since I haven’t had time for it, and therefore yanked in some old texts. I want this blog to be better and better and more and more original.
But sometimes that Is. Not. Possible.
Since Char got ill I have barely had five minutes to myself all day, looking after Jay with her and doing house-work, and only being able to work very, very little.… 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
Today I thought a lot about how Jay’s life would be, and what I would teach him as he grows older to get the best from it.
One thing that I want to teach, which has become abundantly clear to me in life so far, is that life should not consist of goals.… Read more
I’ve been thinking about what I want to prioritize the deepest in the next 40 years – probably the rest – of my life.
It’s not trying to reach some special position in political, economic or cultural life. It’s not about fame. It’s not about travelling to new places. It’s not about more sex.… Read more
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
Okay, Jay may come around any day now – and according to the doctors he is due 6 May. Which still means any day now. So what’s the status on how ready I feel for that?
It’s long overdue to make such a status, and I’ve been wanting to for some time.… Read more
