Bill Gates posted something with a similar title the other day. Who better to borrow from? So without further ado, let me cherrypick a tres jolie collection of ups, downs and ahas, from my office on the 17th floor to your browser. The second I wrote that, I sighed a...read more

Listen, I have to break it to you, I love my writing. Before the world decides to jump on the wagon and call me the next best thing since David Sedaris, I’ll be in this tight corner, reading my own blog posts, not sure when I really came up with that. Do you ever read...read more

The Alpha and Omega. A cool way to get up to date with Aristoteles without reading 47 volumes.
Because I go gaga over creams, and blush, and lipstick.
