  1. Getting the easy stuff right

    This rang way too true for me. Robin writes about how he struggles to get the little things right and it was like reading my own report card in life. So much effort goes into the major stuff that I do, but the simple stuff I fail to do Answering an email from an inbound […]

  2. Inktober

    Inktober is upon us again and I’m going to try and stick with it… AGAIN. I think the key to making it through the month is to never, under any circumstances, look at #inktober2019 on instagram and compare your own artwork with the artwork that everyone else is doing. There’s no quicker way to be […]

    A love letter to my website – DESK Magazine — Read on www.vanschneider.com/a-love-letter-to-personal-websites I love the sentiments of this post and it reinforces the reason I’ve been in a quest to publish something in this site every day. Social networks are still for me though. My twitter stream is where I enjoy my updates of […]

  9. Ashes 2019

    The ashes are over. After five games between the two biggest rivals in World Cricket the series has ended in a draw. 2-2. For a non cricket fan this would seem impossibly boring. How could you play 5 games and still end up in a draw? Especially when each game goes for 5 days, and […]
