6-May-2011 Reading ‘n’ stuff

Friday 6 May 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Its 1.20am, and the missus went to work about 4hrs ago (she is a night duty intensive care nurse), and the kids are more or less old enough to look after themselves (tip: teach your kids to cook for themselves – a great life skill and makes your own life easier  and they enjoy it!)

So I went for a run, not far as I still have weird ITB/hammie issues mainly in my left leg but I feel it alsso in my right. I went for approx 5km all on road (a bit hilly though). Temp was very cold (about 15C!) – obviously the temps are dropping in preparation for the coming winter. I like winter so am not fussed.

Then I spent quite a bit of time reading, web feeds, news, whilst listening to the best of Elvis Presley. Very civilised and I certainly feel very relaxed now. Its important to take time out for yourself.

I have opened up the links that I save, so you can see what I am bookmarking: http://www.delicious.com/kevtiller

Your job is to collect ideas. The best way to collect ideas is to read. Read, read, read, read, read. Read the newspaper. Read the weather. Read the signs on the road. Read the faces of strangers. The more you read, the more you can choose to be influenced by. …

Made me realize how reading lots and lots of stuff isn’t really a waste of time, no matter how obscure the topics might be: All this stuff is my drive, my constant inspiration and it certainly leaves lots of positive traces.

The above quote is from the Friendly Anarchist.
