Here I am in your mailbox again! Thank you to everyone who responded to my last newsletter. It is encouraging to read that my newsletter is appreciated. Lately I haven't been able to personally respond to all emails (full head 🤯) but I have read everything with great pleasure.
As you can see, my newsletter has a different name and a different branding. More on that below!
I don't have a website with a portfolio, and I've wanted one for over ten years. 10 years! I thought to do it myself but it took so many hours that I would have to take a few weeks off to finish it. So I emailed a brand design agency: they are now making my website. Since I'm a designer myself, it's interesting to see how someone else approaches it. I also have an opinion about what I find important in a website, but luckily the designer and I are finding common ground. It should be finished by the end of March and I can't wait!
MOVIE I watched a few movies with Jessie Buckley in them. Accidentally, but I was very charmed by her. So I also watched Wild Rose, in which she has the lead role. Without spoiling the movie, the ending made me realize something about my own ambitions.
BOOK I mainly read non-fiction books, and in order not to fry my brain completely, I increasingly read novels. I've read a few of Mhairi Mcfarlane's now. They are very easy to read! I am also reading The war of artfor a third time. I'm also listening to Essentialism for a second time (as an audiobook).
"Many of us seek community solely to escape the fear of being alone. Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape."
That's it for this month. I hope you liked this installment and if so, please forward it to friends, family or colleagues. I'd really appreciate it!
