apologia pro vita sua


Let's be honest. If you can't post at least once a week, you shouldn't post at all.

I always said that good blogs were chronicles of change - even if unconsciously so - and, to be honest, not too much is changing around here. Just the seasons. And if the blog's not as good as it could be, it's not worth doing at all.

If things do change... you'll be the first to know. In the meantime - sleep easy. Life here is still a beautiful dream.

A design for life

"Storming a breach, conducting an embassy, ruling a nation are glittering deeds. Rebuking, laughing, buying, selling, loving, hating and living together gently and justly with your household - and with yourself - not getting slack nor being false to yourself, is something more remarkable, more rare and more difficult. Whatever people may say, such secluded lives sustain in that way duties which are at least as hard and as tense as those of other lives."

Michel de Montaigne, 1533-1592
