Words, Windows and Disturbed

Have you ever experienced Altschmerz? Altschmerz is a German word that describes a weariness with the same old issues you’ve always had – the same boring flaws and anxieties that you’ve been gnawing for years. I am not sure about you but I experience this often. Just when you get an issue resolved….another one you’ve… Read More

Planners, music and the telegraph

Welcome to Friday! Here are a few things/links I’ve been enjoying lately. I have been using Michael Hyatt’s Full Focus planner for the last several years, not well I might add. I am definitely a fan of Hyatt’s approach to the planner but was looking for a different play on it. I found a great… Read More

Friday photos and a few ramblings

Here are a few stories/links for you to check out and enjoy.

Here… Read More

a rare opportunity

Fridays are for Pictures

Happy Friday to you all. I do hope that you find these pictures enjoyable. If you haven’t seen Wellington visiting the Belugas, you have to watch this. And a Peacock Mantis Shrimp may be one of the coolest “animals” that I have seen! They have 16 color-detecting receptors (humans only have 3!) and they can… Read More
