It’s Been a While

(Welcome back.)

I haven’t been writing here for some time. No major reason; just a confluence of personal situations that, while not at all fatal or even unpleasant, left me somewhat disorganized for a time.

Some things that have happened/are happening in my life, in no particular order:

— I am taking an online marketing course designed by the popular marketer Seth Godin. You may read a little bit about the experience throughout the month, in forthcoming posts. (I’m way behind on the course.)

— This year I did everything there was to do in Destiny 2. Much of this was done over the past month because I wanted to win the newly revealed medal, which is only available until the end of August. It’s an interesting way for producers to encourage players to dive deep into a game, and I don’t understand why more teams don’t do it.

— While I was walking with my family one night, we saved a baby cat. I adopted her temporarily and I’m looking for a home for her. (The photo accompanying this post is hers.)

— I am currently spending some time with friends in a small retreat in the center-north of Portugal, in a small village equidistant to Porto, Viseu, and Aveiro. I usually avoid such situations, but I shouldn’t, because the reset they apply to daily life is valuable. Another thing to write about.

— Speaking of which, I hope to travel later this month. Does that mean there won’t be frequent posts again? I don’t want to promise anything, but I’m thinking of leaving something written in advance…
