People wake up early every weekday morning and under normal circumstances they immediately think about family members or whether they slept well. Soon after achieving consciousness, often only after introducing caffeine into their system, the working person is naturally going to start thinking of the coming workday. Many people spend a tremendous amount of their… Continue reading Why are we even doing any of this, anyway? Thoughts on working and self worth
We don’t miss it. None of it. The noise, the distractions, the Sturm und Drang of modern life. What if it’s not so bad to just be human, without all the pressure to share our thoughts and whatnot, for a little while?
While not getting too specific about who it was who irritated me the other day, while I was doing this roku account on twitter, I’d like talk about criticism and how I’ve chosen to use social media. To be clear, I’m neither a good American nor a well-integrated German visitor. Other expats or immigrants or… Continue reading rolling with the haters, and begging for feedback or questions
My high school French has served me well. It hasn’t hurt that I’ve known some amazing French people, and of course I mean women. Oof. Tell me again why I shouldn’t shine as brightly as I can manage? Stories of Keith Moon or Icarus be damned, I’m flying as close to the sun as I… Continue reading briller de tous ses feux and now
This is sort of a weird situation, because I’d committed myself to start blogging again daily, and missed yesterday. Like running, or even exercise, if I don’t do it regularly, i.e. every single day, then I quickly get out of the habit. On the one hand, I know no one’s waiting with baited breath for… Continue reading Need a better class of friends
It’s been another hell of a week, but I knew it was coming. So I planned accordingly. Quite a few things fall by the wayside when my life gets too busy, but the first thing’s blogging. I’m still writing, of course. Both professionally and privately. I’m working on a project right now that’s a dating… Continue reading What I’ve done since the last time I blogged (last week just before #DigitalFreeSunday) – a long strange trip it’s been
That title is completely computer generated. Just typed ‘Hahahahaha’ in & then used predictive text to create it. Someone told me recently that nobody read content anymore. It was a graphic designer or website builder, so it’s clear they’ve got another agenda than I do. Why even write. A blog? Really? It’s 2020 — who… Continue reading Hahahahaha … you know how to make a nice shot and you can get a better place for it
This social media lark is just that. It’s not serious. No matter what you’ve been told. Nothing going on online is more important than the people sitting in front of you.
A photo of Miriam and me showed up in feckbook’s algorithm today. Exactly two years ago today we were back in Liguria, where the progeny was most likely conceived, and we were madly in love. The memories keep coming — it’s not all smiles & joy, but I suppose that’s the nature of social media.… Continue reading Let’s do it again and again
Well, we didn’t make it to Mahag by Monday morning, as it’d been planned. I suppose Miriam called them, but at this point in such a ridiculous story? I just don’t know. Long story short, you’re begging of me? Other than that we didn’t make it to our appointment? You mean: what happened up until… Continue reading To be continued…
