Quick Thoughts

I spent today working on re-releasing Beginnings, which has found its way into a pretty PDF and is already uploaded to the website. Now I just need to build it an equally pretty page. Let’s hope that won’t take me another year to finish. ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Photo by Nick Morrison on Unsplash Yesterday, I upgraded my little corner of the Internet. Under the hood at least. New server, twice the space and all for the same amount of money I spent before (1). Finally , I can install and uninstall plugins and themes from within WordPress, without the detour through a FTP client. This…
The Ritual

The Ritual

Not every ritual requires candles, incense, crystals or a naked person tied up on the floor inside a pentagram. The sound of water hitting white porcelain. It drones out every other sound.
