Five things for the week


  1. I'm working on slowing down. Not in the sense that I want less to do, rather, in the sense that I move towards doing things in a more purposeful, quality > quantity methodology. I'm working on incorporating this in all aspects of my life, from handling large scale projects and tasks at work to cooking more meals at home.
  2. I started reading Ursula Le Guin's translation of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching. I first heard about her translation through Maria Popova's Brain Pickings post. Intentionally I'm only reading a few pages at a time, taking time to process and truly understand what is being written. It helps slow things down and put things into perspective.
  3. Photography! I am slowly, intentionally, working my way back into it. I have identified it as something that has been missing in my life and routines.
  4. Work out loud. Live out loud. I'm exploring this as possible themes to help me post to this blog and social media sites.
  5. There's something about my home office setup that has been bothering me. I cannot pin point it, yet. Not sure if it has to do with the technology/layout of technology, or the layout of the overall workspace altogether. Or, if it's just something that I will always be tinkering with because that's simply what I like to do.
