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 11-17

A week of clouds, rain, chill, and leaves turning red, yellow and everything in between. Peak autumn. Not so peak happy me because life keeps interfering but that’s its job, isn’t it? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 11-17

A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 4-10

It has been a week of adulting and learning new things, and making plans, and spending a fortune on pharmaceutical produce because it’s the season for propping up the body’s defences against whatever lurks in the air. All in all, I’ve had worse. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 4-10

A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 20-26

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. Adulting is okay for a while but not constantly. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 20-26

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. And then imagine how you are forced to give it up after having it for three days. I got my kitchen. On Wednesday. On Saturday we left for the city. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 6-12

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

It’s officially here. Autumn, that is. So is our new kitchen. Things are happening, which tells me the extra-dose of real-lifing I was forced to take this summer (which is now on its way out in case anyone has not committed this to memory) is now paying off. Or is it? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 30 – September 5

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

It pleases me immensely to report that this year, for the first time in possibly forever but certainly in years, I had the pleasure of seeing the first signs of autumn in August. Yes, I noticed the “pleases” and “pleasure” and I couldn’t care less. It’s coming! Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 23-29

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 16-22

It is said “May you live in interesting times” and it appears the last one who said it really meant it. Even in the middle of summer, in the laziest month of all, boredom has remained out of reach for much of the world, it seems, and for me. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 16-22

A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 2-8

The reason there was no PLBW last week was that I was too busy going to the beach on Sunday and then too busy dying slowly of heat and humidity in Constanta to write anything but the bare necessities such as work. I’m still in the process of recovering but since it’s a long road from central Bulgaria to southern Romania, I made some pictures on the way, completely random. Well, almost. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: August 2-8

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 31 – June 6

Oh, look, it’s that time of the year again when something is blooming and the mucous membranes in my face don’t like it so they go on strike, which makes me sneeze like I’m training for the Olympic sneezing team. It’s the time of the year when I hold my personal medicine appreciation week. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 31 – June 6
