Thoughts Shared

I have been meaning to write regularly on a blog of sorts. But, I just end up over-analysing and giving up in the end.

One way to beat this analysis paralysis is by lowering my standards and hitting the publish button.

Hot tip: I’m planning to track how many times I’m publishing a post in a week. This means, that if an essay is good enough then I will publish it and celebrate with it a fist pump.

I have been procrastinating a lot lately.

It might be because of fasting during the Indian Summer. Apparently, hot weather doesn’t always agree with me when I’m visiting the Motherland. The heat makes me tired and exhausted. It makes me long for the British Summer. I’m sure once I’m back home, I’ll be moaning about the British Summer.

I feel the mainstream media is priming the world to enter into another unnecessary war. Their hypocrisy is unbelievable.

Palestinians are suffering for more than 70 years from an Apartheid regime. Iraqis are suffering for more than 20 years because of an illegal war forced on them. The Afghans for more than 25 years because of the greed of the Old White men. And, many other non-White countries because of the “Western” country's greed for money and power. Yet, these liberal Western democracies accuse others of war crimes when they have blood on their hands.

In short, civilians bear the pain and suffering because of these greedy folk whose sole purpose seems to be total world domination and submission.

I’m trying to publish short form posts that are my unformed thoughts and opinions. These are open for discussion and debate.

I’m experimenting with my Write.as as a stream of consciousness style blog to detox my dopamine cravings from social media algorithms. The task is simple, whenever I feel the urge to scroll social media, my default mode is to journal in Obsidian or draft a short post for Write.as blog.

The initial test run for this experiment is just two weeks i.e. until 5th April, 2022.

Let’s rock this party!

I’m learning to let go of uploading a photo with my posts. I feel like this is a major sticking point for me that stops me from publishing any content to this blog.

That’s going to change from today, December 1st, 2021.

Do look forward to regular updates. Some might be passing thoughts. Some might be golden nuggets of wisdom.

Soon we will see fallen leaves everywhere.

Drove in the rain. It was pain & delight at the same time.

I had a good walk today.

We had a good day out with Pizza for dinner.

Nothing beats a good coffee after a long walk.
