Appreciation of Blue

Reading time: 2 mins

A clear blue afternoon, a quiet apartment, a man gazes up at the sky. A comforting light that ebbs through the blinds, glowing lines in strict patterns on the floor, highlighting the knots and swirls of the floorboards.

Lessening the Absolutes

Reading time: 2 mins

To me, morals are objective, they aren’t governed by distinct rules or laws (there is no black or white) and so I find people who make blanket statements, absolutes that leave only two options, troublesome to the point of aggravating.

2014 has arrived and already we are a week into the new year. Time for a recap, yeah? Am I doing this right? Number of times I’ve written 2013 by accident. One. Number of (short, slow) jogs I’ve managed. Two. Number of nights sleep ruined by insomnia. Three. Number of days I’ve thought about shaving…

Doing more
