Autodidacts out there, hear the swoosh of my virtual bow. I taught myself to read many, many years ago, but on days like these it looks like there’s not much else I’ll do for myself. Figuring out other people’s main message is piece of cake compared to writing your...read more
I’ve been sitting on this for way too long but somehow, this will see the light of day. Today. Does that recall anything? Feet up on the desk, I stare into the screen and occasionally peep out the window at the seagull floating by. I can’t help a “lucky bastard” or...read more
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

(Maybe because I also look a bit like Krista. I wish I was her twin.) Her podcast is my weekly soul spa.

Philosopher geeks with a taste for the classics: movies, books and superheros. I like. And give on Patreon.
Crisp videos on filmmaking and culture. Am a Patron. Je like again.
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.
