Summer blues

September! And I am just about to shake off the heavy rains from spring! Sorry for not posting sooner but this had two reasons: integration & having the feeling of running out of time.

It’s nature, stupid

Everything grows abundantly on our terrain. Or at least, we hope, by next year. And it has to do the trick because I want to live self-sufficient, without all entertainment & distraction society offers so gracefully. What really keeps the world going? Our nature & oceans.

The Underground Railroad: black freedom in America.

I love to read but that doesn’t mean that I am a good reviewer, tss. I seldom read reviews. Just read the book because it provides the Black Struggle for freedom with context. In the end, the author leaves you with this: Is the Afro-American finally free?

marriage isn’t about compromise

We are renovating. And anyone who (re)built a house will know that it entails a whole catalogue of discussions. We are mentally & physically exhausted but this Portuguese project needs to triumph. So does our marriage.

Bad for business?

I set up with some Portuguese friends the platform Desplastic. We want to keep our surf spot clean from plastic. Sorting isn’t obligatory in Portugal and beach bars are forced by law to use plastic instead of glass. We get a lot of positive reactions. Until business gets real.
