From the Desk Remix! The One Thing.

I've been thinking a lot recently about the 'one thing'. There is so much advice out there telling us to focus on one thing and become a master of it - this is the path of the successful. There is no shortage of examples to prove this 'rule'. But what if your creativity takes you… Continue reading From the Desk Remix! The One Thing.

From the Desk Remix! – Lots of Fish but only One Shark.

I think being creative is often the easiest part. Generally, I have no shortage of ideas and inspiration, whether it is writing or art. The problem comes in that they are often like a shoal of fish and I am in the middle of them. Even sharks find grabbing hold of just one of those… Continue reading From the Desk Remix! – Lots of Fish but only One Shark.

From the Desk Remix! – Information Overload and Lettuce!

Information overload. We are living in an environment of information ubiquity, which is at times amazing. At other times, it can be a problem.

Yesterday was the last day of September. It has passed quickly. There is more darkness and the rains have returned. The end of a month is like walking through a doorway.

From the Desk Remix! – 4 Billion Bits!

The weather summary for today - It rained. It stopped raining. It rained. It stopped raining. It rained . . . Our brains like to sift things into easy categories. It makes sense.

From the Desk – Remix! – Me Journal, You Journal?

As this month is ending I have been getting my journal set up for October. I have a hybrid BuJo and record/reflections journal which I enter the art, writing, Bible study, podcasts, videos, books, music, which have accompanied me on any given day. I am not perfect at the forward planning, or the recording of… Continue reading From the Desk – Remix! – Me Journal, You Journal?
