In the current cold snap, we use more power than usual.. Yesterday just dumb luck stopped my apartment from catching fire. An under-dimensioned and overloaded section of wiring in the kitchen simply melted and burned while we were asleep.

I was lucky this time, but I don’t want there to be a next time.

The Norwegian folk stories by Asbjørnsen & Moe, animated by Ivo Caprino were an integral part of my childhood. I have now ripped my old DVDs, so for @Portufraise and @maique I hope to be able to share these soon.

My company is now considering offering the services of a psychologist to employees that want someone to talk to to help with dealing with the effects of COVID-related isolation. Very happy to be working for them.

Best acquisition of 2020: My little Ricoh camera, which totally rekindled my interest in photography.

Last walk of 2020

Yesterday I went for a walk in downtown Lisbon before the curfew took effect. Streets wet with rain and shining lights made for a nice atmosphere.

Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. Gets me every time. I know by heart where every note by every instrument falls, but I never tire of it.

Emacs, org-mode and org-roam is a super awesome combination, but still I am drawn to fooling around with other note taking solutions. I am playing with Obsidian, and also find logseq tempting.

Somebody stage an intervention, please!
