Sightseeing Tour

556 I wrote about reflection many, many times. It's a topic I just can't get enough of, I suppose. A great metaphor I recently crafted and that helped me visualize the concept even further is the one of going on a sightseeing tour. Reflecting on your life, your past, your…

All I Know

555 All I know is that I don't know anything. That's my default position in life. It's been that way for some time. So far, I've seen only benefits of that approach. In my social circle quite often I'm the guy that "solves problems". I mean, it's not like I…

Identity

554 I think that there are at least two pretty important aspects of understanding identity. Two ways of interpreting it; of building it. First, there's the projected identity. This is what other people think about us, who we are in their view. But it's also how we think about ourselves,…

Inequality

553 I've been thinking for ages about this one question: is inequality inevitable? Are we bound to the inequalities of this world? Will there always be inequality? Can we simply eradicate it, like a disease? The answer I've come to is no. Almost everyone you compare, there'll be inequalities among…

Defaults

552 I have so many defaults. We all have so many defaults. Gosh. Most of our actions are automatic, 95%, I'd say. There's no need to process through every single decision our brain has to make in a day; so we set up shortcuts, pre-made decision routes. In a sense,…

Podcasts -> Books

551 I recently made a major switch in my "content consumption" (hate that term) trends. Less noise, more signal. I love podcasts. They're such a nice, pleasant way of sharing information, debate, discussion. They are available, well-made, and just convenient. I learned a lot from various podcasts over the years,…

Awaiting

550 We're all waiting for something in life. Some resolution. Some progress. Some change. Waiting, expecting, hoping for. There's certainly one thing that unites all of us in this process of waiting; death. We're all, in a sense, waiting for it. It's looming, somewhere in the distance. Surely, it's far…

What's Left

549 Shrek said that ogres are like onions; made of layers. Humans are also like that. There's the core, the soul, the essence. However you want to call it. It's the thing that guarantees your humanity. And everything that comes with it. Then there are layers. Of beliefs. Sometimes built…

The Valleys, The Peaks

548 Writing daily has been a perfect, long-term measurement of my daily creativity levels. Because I can look back on a) how good particular posts are, and b) how hard was it to write them, I can quite accurately judge my "level of creativity". That's a relative term within itself,…

Take Chance

547 In mosts flavors of photography, but especially in journalistic and street photography, chance can be, and often is the deciding factor. Sometimes you just can't guarantee the shot will be there; sometimes everything may align as you want, other times it never will. That's the beauty of spontaneity; you,…
