A Profound Look at the Future

That the past twenty or so months have been hard on everyone except billionaires, who got richer, is hardly news. I guess many of us didn’t know exactly how hard these months will be and perhaps only the best among us, pessimism experts, foresaw how long the hard part will last. What was news to me, was just how deep you could descend into the pit of pessimism. Continue reading A Profound Look at the Future

A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 18-24

Did you know where the phrase ‘fair warning’ comes from? I didn’t but I learned it this week along with other fascinating things such as that we urgently need actual zombies because we can’t even do an apocalypse right. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 18-24

The closer we get to October the happier I normally am. This year there have been interruptions to my growing happiness but I try to be wise about them. After all, many people real-life all the time and not only sporadically like me. It’s all fine, I’m sure and I will have the chance to settle into my usual routine sooner or later.

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 13-19

I am an adult. This may be stating the obvious for some but for me it is a declaration I vowed to myself I will make if I survive this week with nothing more than mild damages to my mental health. And I did. I also bought a car. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 13-19

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 6-12

Imagine wanting something so very, very much you are willing to make sacrifices for it. Now imagine you get that thing.
