I am so far down this Vincent van Gogh rabbit hole now. I have read many books in the week off I just had. All of them on his life and I also rinsed the hell out of Youtube for learning more on Mr V. van Gogh. It has informed my post today. I wantedContinue reading “Learn like Vincent”
To start to relax you first need to wind down. This first weekend of my week off was all about winding down and taking long walks with no where to go, no place to be and no expectations. Very relaxed. I am writing a post on Vincent Van Gogh and how to use his methodContinue reading “Winding down”
Yesterday I wrote about newspapers and old papers. Today I continue that train of thought on old and new things. The older I get the more I am certain I don’t now anything at all. All I do know that life need not add up or make sense. The world is an inconsistent collection ofContinue reading “Torn between new and old”
I was not sure if I really needed to read newspapers or consume daily news any more. It felt like I was not getting the value out of the time spent. So I did an experiment: I read the newspaper a week later, so today I would read last Wednesday’s news and or watch recordedContinue reading “Newspapers – Oldpapers”
I love this book of poems, Model City by Donna Stonecipher. It is inspiring and yet no sooner as I have finished ‘my imploring’ I feel a pang of regret as before this post was written it was my ‘Model City’ and my Donna Stonecipher and now it may also be yours also. Such asContinue reading “Model City by Donna Stone Cipher”
I read a helpful blog post by a young writer last week, it was on decision making (here). It was just lovely to see a young person writing a helpful post that clearly described her thinking on a topic, it showed a deliberate intention to cover in two minutes a topic. As important however, IContinue reading “Decisions and forks”
It is in my inquisitive obsessive nature that from time to time causes me to fall down a rabbit hole. It usually starts with book or an essay I have read. With the Internet at arms length the rabbit holes are unavoidable. So it was that in the last two weeks I have fell downContinue reading “Vincent van Gogh Rabbit Hole”
In the last eight years I have taken to writing letters, yes that’s right real old fashioned letters. I read through some letters my grandad wrote to our family, how wonderful to see, hold and smell a link to him so many years after he had passed away. The letters were a physical link toContinue reading “Writing to say thanks”
I am sad today, someone vandalised my little yellow beach hut two nights ago. My little shed by the sea has been damaged in the night by God knows who. Magaritaville is my Beach Hut’s name and it is where I do most of my writing in spring and summer as well as talking toContinue reading “Feeling Sad today!”
Taking a break from my computer screens, iPad and phone screens to write something by hand is something I find joyful. Writing a thank-you note, congratulatory message or such notes is a wonderfully rewarding and enjoyable process. I write daily in two journals, one long hand with all the daily recollections verbatim. The other smallerContinue reading “Writing, with pen and paper”
