But of course I couldn’t. I could just go to Big Client no. 1 and take up the reins again after my leave due to the birth of Jay. And then go catch up with other minor clients and find new clients.
And what a real bug of a day. While yesterday wasn’t so bad as I feared, today gave me reminders all across the board about why Big Client is a real challenge to work with.… Read more
… when it comes to earning money in a way that’s better than now.
Not news, really, although this time it came to me while walking Jay in his carriage Very Early this morning, dead-tired and wondering if I was ever going to get time enough to get some of the (other) successes I craved in life.… Read more
I’ve been thinking about four universal ways in which we (can) handle Crises in life: Big stuff – like somebody dying or losing our health or livelihood. Those categories.
I suppose you could call them strategies but in reality they are probably more like modes of action, derived from a combination of habits, capabilities and whatever social and spiritual support we can command at any given moment.… Read more
As you know, if you’ve been reading the past week’s entries or so, I’ve been thinking a lot about socalled passive income:
– How I want to create it
– How much I want of it
– and what it is.
And it suddenly occurred to me yesterday or the day before that, some time in the evening when I had turned off the Internet Noise and just lay on my bed:

We end up ‘fixing’ only our sense of being swept away by life’s storms, whirl winds – whatever they are.
But we are still swept away … every day …
So we continue to fix by continuing to escape:
Whatever feels like it is too strong for us to control and brings us out of balance all the time – screaming kids or a screaming boss.… Read more
What if I tried consistently to see my life as a journey? How would that feel?
Do I think it would make it easier for me to accept that sometimes there are false starts and dead ends and all kinds of problems?
Do I think it would make it easier for me to also enjoy the parts of the journey with the spectacular views and interesting people?… Read more
Today we started rearranging our smallish apartment for Jay’s coming. I felt a bit like we were too late, not just with that but with everything.
Jay should have been here 10 years ago.
Our steady jobs should’ve been here 10 years ago.
Some kind of house should be here for all of us to fit in.… 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
Spoke with my oldest friend, M, today on the phone. It was good, but as usual it was also bad.
His mother is very ill and has been for many years. He sounded exhausted.

I understand the feeling very well. Nothing to do but wait for the inevitable.… Read more
