If there is one thing I love when I enter my office, it is the sight of my books. Books I’ve reads, books I have yet to read, books that look pretty and others that have inspired me. There is usually not a day that goes by that I don’t read or listen to a book (hmm some people don’t consider this reading, but I love my Audible App). Last year I read 34 books. This year I’ll probably take it a bit easier; my goal on Goodreads is 25 for 2019.
My books are not just for me. They are shared amongst friends, colleagues and random people I meet. Sometimes they return to me, other times they go out into the world and stay there.
This year started with Michelle Obama’s book Becoming and The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni. I’m looking forward to reading The Unstoppable Ruth Bader Ginsburg: American Icon and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century and to finishing the Social Singularity by Max Borders.
The sound of the “pagara’s” echo around me. It is only the 28th, but it being Friday, many people seem keen on getting the celebrations started. This is the sound of New Years. The sound of reflection, of memories and of goals yet to be made. It is somehow also the sound of new beginnings, of better intentions and renewed hope. 2018 was full of travel, surprises and unexpected opportunities - let’s see what 2019 will bring.
A few months ago I “discovered” Lunya. Do I sleep better? I’d say so. It’s so comfortable I’d love to walk around in Lunya all day.
And so, after many months of silence, there is a feeling of “must” to post something here again. Something small, something light - but something.
