You may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value to you than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself; because only through ordering what you know by comparing every truth with every other truth can you take complete possession of your knowledge and get it into your power.
- Arthur Schopenhauer
I don’t often put quotes and links in here. It reminds me of drummer where it was quite easy to add them along with chit chat. Also if I put these things here they end up getting lost and I never find them again. Perhaps that’s not a bad thing, given the quote above 😅
There’s a red weather warning where we live although we’re not quite in the centre of it, so it’s just a lot of rain vs. having to evacuate.
Looking back at this year’s DayOne journal entries and it’s quite disheartening. I think about adding stuff to it but I’m always “too busy” and then never get round to it. Not sure how I get back on it again.
I need to find a routine to write in it. Sitting at the bureau with the iPad and cup of tea for a time each evening is a good option, I just need to make it work.
I do spend a lot of time obsessing over radio stuff and have done since about April. If I look at the DayOne calendar then it’s clear that my entries dropped off a lot from then. That’s okay but I don’t want it to go to zero.
I think everyone should keep a personal, daily blog. I find it enjoyable to write in when I do.
I enjoy writing in general. Which I find funny as historically I would’ve said I don’t like writing. I’m not good at writing but I enjoy it.
My wife isn’t keen on the physical appearance of radio antenna in our garden and she said “I wish you went back to typewriters”.
Speaking of which, my sister (she’s in twenties) asked me where I got my typewriter as she wants one! I’m so proud it makes me want to buy her one immediately. Unfortunately, finding a good but reasonably priced one is hard these days. I think it’s better than covid times, and there are some for £30-50 but of questionable functionality. May be lucky or not, I should keep an eye out for a good one for her. Would be a nice Christmas present. 🎄
