Another Sunday, another snippet! Picking up where last week’s entry, “Dusk”, left off, we’ll find Johanan waking up to a scene quite different from the lively campsite from the night prior. Continue reading “#8Sunday 04/09/17 WeWriWa Entry: “Inhabitance””
I’ve found that we can essentially live our lives by one of two ways: living to work, or working to live. The former entails a life of enslavement to never-ending labor, while the latter one of tirelessly slaving away to buy enough time in order to enjoy the fruits of our labor. We truly are thrust between a rock and a hard place.
Though personally, I’d rather choose neither. I said “essentially”, not “solely”. Surely, there must be a way to simply live?
These entries have been pretty action-packed so far, so for this week’s entry I figured we’d take a step back and relax for a moment Continue reading “#8Sunday 04/02/17 WeWriWa Entry: “Dusk””
I don’t think so. Here’s why:

For this week’s entry I figured I’d take a break from my first perilous installment (here’s last week’s, “An Attempt at Diplomacy”, if you missed it) and switch over to another series, a short story I’ve been working on for a few weeks for Baen Books’ writing contest. As always, if you want to get involved in these weekly submissions you can head over to Weekend Writing Warriors for all the info on their writing events. Here’s just one snippet from the story- and don’t worry, if you’ve started sinking back in your seat, this one will make you jump right back to the edge of it: Continue reading “#8Sunday 03/26/17 WeWriWa Entry: “Acting Quickly””
It is natural to be concerned about others’ opinions, to wonder of our image in others’ eyes. But once this concern begins to govern our thoughts, our actions, our lives, we need remind ourselves to turn the concern inward. Let others’ thoughts be their own, let them think and say what they want. At the end of each day, the only person’s thoughts that we have control over is our own.
Arthur Miller, American playwright, essayist, and prominent figure in twentieth-century American theatre, was once quoted saying:
“Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.”
Now when I first came across the quote, I really didn’t get it. The “right regrets”? Continue reading “Is There Such A Thing As The “Right Regrets”?”
This week’s WeWriWa entry will pick up where my first entry “Gap” left off. You can head on over to Weekend Writing Warriors to find all the info you need about their writing events and how to participate. Here’s my entry, where we find our explorer in a pretty tight spot: Continue reading “#8Sunday 03/19/17 WeWriWa Entry: “An Attempt at Diplomacy””
Time seems to be something we’re all chasing after.
It feels like we can never get enough of it. Then finally, once we corner it and catch it, it slips through our fingers once more. Continue reading “3 Ways To Make More Time For Yourself”
Luxury is not about money. It is about living a truly authentic life. Contrary to what you may think, luxury products were not created to drive revenue. They were created to help people live a more comfortable life. Today, thanks to technology, that level of comfort is more readily available to anyone who wants to embrace it. Not through some new gadget, but by just slowing down and enjoying the beauty that exists in a life simply lived.
Don’t think you have the time? Read on…
Living simply is not a new idea. It is as old as time. It is just that today’s simplicity is not the same as it used to be. Nor is the idea of luxury. Somewhere along the line people got distracted with the idea that having “more” was the same as having “better.” It is not. Just ask anyone wallowing in credit card debt…
