Separating goal from measurement

Think of a goal you’ve made for yourself recently, one that you feel is currently active or in progress. Choose one from any stroke of life. In 2020, I have many areas of life under development: gaining traction with Soldrevet as a business, living in a new town, building my athletic skills, and staying mentallyContinue reading “Separating goal from measurement”

Riffing on a theme

Marie is joining Inktober. It’s a personal mission for committing to drawing each day of October. Someone has generated a theme or catalyzing word for each day of the month, and participants make ink creations starting from that word. You can read more about it here. (Is the website still down? Try the Twitter feed?)Continue reading “Riffing on a theme”

Abstract images

It’s a Reader Request day. I received a comment through the Soldrevet website question forms about the abstracted images that I use.

Do you have a question or a request forContinue reading “Abstract images”

Building a new homebase

Marie and I moved out of the Arctic in August. We spent about a week driving 1000 km. Our travelling lives still fit in the back of Marie’s e-Golf, including our summer purchases of a 24″ monitor, my folding bicycle, and our growing shoe collection. It did feel a little odd to drive around withContinue reading “Building a new homebase”

Finding confidence by defining it

There’s a mountain foot race that, in normal years, I would’ve run about two weeks ago. It is both my first mountain race and the only race I’ve run twice. The course is set out something like a figure-8, with one mountain peak sitting at the intersection of the two circles and a second peakContinue reading “Finding confidence by defining it”

Don’t say “Be Patient”

There are a few conversations from years ago that hang on as clear memories. In general, I remember life in a fuzzy way and tend to recall generalities rather than specifics. I remember with clarity,however, being told “Be patient” by a supervisor who should’ve been my champion and not my adversary. This bout of weakContinue reading “Don’t say “Be Patient””
