5 uur 42

“… zie je, in mijn droom

is alles anders.”

Ik loop op straat met in mijn hand mijn fiets,

Als een gemankeerde wandelaar of gevallen coureur.

Het is  een druk parkours, haastig op weg naar huis,

verschijn je uit het niets, als in een droom.

Een windvlaag over een natte zomerhuid,

Net uit de zon.

Na van de eerste schrik te zijn bekomen, als een rilling over je rug,

Stel je me voor aan je zoon.

De eerste keer dat ik hem zie,

die gelijkenis,

tussen jou en hem,

en mij, er is niets veranderd.

In het landschap van een schilder,

Staat alles stil, parallel aan elkaar,

een foto van een mooie dag,

5 uur 42, 238 seconden lang.

 

 

 

A Three-Step Plan to Productive, Stress-Free Fridays

Now here is an interesting concept you can try out for today and see if it works for you. Sounds a bit like the Weekly Review from GTD to me, but has enough new others things in it as well to make it worthwhile trying….

Friday is a wasted day for a lot of people. You’re tired from the week, your mind is focused on the weekend, and most of your coworkers are probably checked out. This day plan keeps your Friday productive, but also keeps things relaxed so you can ease into your weekend.

Wondering—past and future

I feel a new series coming up, whenever I read Seth Godin’s little blog of wisdom. Now I just need a name for it…

Wondering about your past, about what might have happened, about bad decisions made and roads not taken… this is a recipe for not much more than regret. But wondering about your future? When we wonder about the future, we get a chance to begin again, to set new goals and envision bold plans.
