Waiting for the apples to bake.

Okay, I think my MacBook Air is soon entering retirement. The battery just dropped by 6% in a matter of two minutes. I guess that is what happens after seven years of faithful service.  It’s a foggy, November morning and I’m baking apples with cinnamon for breakfast. A bit of a usual breakfast for me,…

The curious case of wanting nothing and something.

It’s a balmy Wednesday evening I’m sitting outside with the curious case of wanting nothing and something at the same time.  A part of me would like to me amongst a group of friends, talking, having a drink. This is the something. The other part of me feels tired by the idea of being in…

What is the point anyway?
