A Cold Summer Night by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro - Baen Ebooks

From acclaimed author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro (writing as Trystam Kith) comes the first book in the Trouble in the Forest duology, a medieval fantasy that turns all too quickly to terror. Deep in the forest, trouble is brewing. No one is safe in the thick, dark forest—no peasant, monk, minstrel, merchant, traveler, forester, or King's man may go into the forest without taking his life and his soul in his hands. Those who dare the deep green are found dead soon after, or worse–disappear. Psychoanalyst Adam Phillips on Our Capacity for “Fertile Solitude” “All of humanity’s problems,” the French scientist and philosopher Blaise Pascal wrote in 1654, “stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

Psychoanalyst Adam Phillips on Our Capacity for “Fertile Solitude”

Three centuries later, the great Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky shared his single most urgent piece of advice to the young: learn to enjoy your own company.

33 Days Later: an Update on My Use of the Bullet Journal Method Task Tracking System – <tamingdata />

In this post, I’ll talk about why I like it so much, and what I’ve learned from using it for the past 33 days. You may remember that in prior posts I had criticized the Bullet Journal method for being a “recycled version” of the Franklin Covey method. Then, I rethought my criticism, as my own method, a.k.a., the “sticky note” method, was not better. I decided to give the Bullet Journal method a go. I began using the Bullet Journal method on January 1st, 2014 as part of my New Year’s resolution to stay on task better.

It works. Two and half years ago I went completely digital. Efficiency can be deceptive, though. How I Bullet Journal: My Approach in 2016. Omnivoracious. Adoption Disruption UK.
