Book Quote

Today’s favourite book comes from “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson book:

It was important, his father said, to craft the backs of cabinets and fences properly, even though they were hidden. “He loved doing things right. He even cared about the look of the parts you couldn’t see.”

Fujifim X10 Features: Three EXR Modes

I haven’t used the Fujifilm X10 camera in years, so I thought it was time to bring it back to life again. I remember loving it when I bought it. However, it has been locked up in an office cabinet and has not been used for a long time. It’s a very small (not much bigger footprint than my iPhone 14 Pro Max) and the built quality is pretty incredible. It’s vintage looking and now officially over a...

The show encourages viewers to make sense of these objects and question what they value, with sculptures of mundane objects cast in...

On Stoicism

“Hurry to your own ruling reason, to the reason of the Whole, and to your neighbor’s. To your own mind to make it just; to the mind of the Whole to remember your place in it; and to your neighbor’s mind to learn whether it’s ignorant or of sound knowledge—while recognizing it’s like yours.”—MARCUS AURELIUS, MEDITATIONS, 9.22 Our actions are ruled by forces that we do not take the time to...
