Went back to our apartment in the City to work because for once I had many webshop clients on the same day, but although it was a relief to get relative peace (minus the renovation of the next floor apartment), I still felt a little bad about leaving Char with Jay.… Read more
My parents came over today and it was good to see especially my mother, and there was a sense of good spirits, but also a strange feeling of … being closer to the edge. My mother survived a second bout of cancer so far and will have to decide on follow up chemo in a few days’ time “just to be sure” – or not.… Read more
Packed the borrowed car and went back to our own apartment in the City to do a few things, including 4 hours of washing clothes in the industrial machines that inhabit our basement – a bit like Björk’s cars in The Modern Things. I’m sure both were here when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth …
But seriously, it was a fine day and sunshine when we drove back on the freeway and Jay was in good spirits.… Read more
I really don’t remember much of what I did today, so it must have been a very ordinary day – fortunately, I suppose. Because such days tend, at least for me, to give some space to think about my life and how I can make the best of it.
Well, in between feeding Jay and during cooking and shopping and so on.… Read more
A lot of driving, to fetch Char and Jay from family birthday down south and then go home and fall asleep very tired – after doing all the usual baby-stuff. But before noon I had some time to myself and even though I had to do dishes and laundry I got thinking about my vision again …
Yeah, about that story on a blog with all sorts of what-not-articles on it as well – mostly reviews of other articles.… Read more
Had a lot of problems finding a place to work today in the city where we stay temporarily (in a borrowed house), and I was almost ready to throw in the towel and not do any work for the rest of the month we stay here and just burn more of my credit.… Read more
Went to a meeting for the self-publishing association here, and admitted that I had given up writing a novel. So why did I go?
Mostly to meet KP, as an excuse. He is the head of the association and a nice guy and I’d like to talk to him more. Didn’t get to do it that much during the meeting, but at least I was reminded why he was a nice guy.… Read more
Tried to take at least half the day off and rejuvenate my heart by writing a novella. But I was too tired inside.
The heart needs to rest first, I guess. Then it can open up again and rejuvenate by sharing what is in it.… Read more
Today my mum came by to see her grand son and we had a great time, except in the evening when Jay was next to impossible for reasons we couldn’t quite gauge.
Maybe the stomach, maybe just because he is growing. Maybe just … because.
That’s the question I ask each morning when I go out in the neighborhood with Jay in his carriage, so Char can get some extra sleep.
It would also be a good question for my life currently. With regard to a number of themes.
Since I am so restricted with time and energy right now, helping raise Jay, trying to earn a minimum income regularly through my firm, and doing dishes 3 days old, this is not an easy question to answer.… Read more
