What I’m Doing Now
Last Updated – 2021年09月16日
In my 78th week of isolation. Fully vaccinated, mask-wearing, maintaining an absolute minimum of non-essential face to face contact.
I’ve quit all freelance work and devote all my time to being a Creator and ThinkerMaker.
I also support the yearly theme with a seasonal themes For Summer 2021 it is Panache. The previous seasonal themes in 2021 were Make A Map 2020 for Winter 2021, and Make Time For Optimism for Spring 2021.
Writing every morning for around two hours, before any reading, before checking email or social media, and if possible, before talking to anybody.
Finding deep solace during this pandemic by returning to my first creative love, playing guitar. Armed with a new Tascam Model 12 and a small stack of pedals I’m playing and recording music regularly.
The Digital Age is not turning out the way many of us had hoped and I’ve radically scaled back the time and effort I put into social media by embracing Digital Minimalism. I still use Twitter and occasionally Instagram.
I only do email twice a week. That said, email is still the best way to reach me because I don’t answer phone calls and typically ignore most DMs on social media.
Like any sane person I have notifications turned off on all my devices for anything other communications from my immediate family.
Functional mobility is an important focus as I start to feel the effects fo age. This includes weekly pilates (online classes from Erika Bloom Pilates in New York), a minimum of 10,000 steps a day, standing where possible, and daily stretching and rolling.
Food isn’t fuel, it’s fun, family and freedom. I home cook at least two of my meals everyday. I bake sourdough bread, make pickles, smoke salmon and bacon.
Father, Son & Lover
Family is a cornerstone of my life and I’m committed to vibrant, vivacious, and vulnerable relationships with the small number of people I hew close to in life.
Why Is This Page Here?
Inspired by Derek Sivers I created this page to make myself accountable for the most important projects in my life and by extension to make clear the things I won’t be doing, in order to have the time and focus for the important stuff!
