What is ‘The Monday Retrospect’?
This is a weekly collection of things that have caught my attention and imagination over the last week. It is a chance to put into words what I have been doing, thoughts I have been processing, things that are happening. It’s a bit of a mind dump really.
- The Legislative Assembly and Local elections are well underway in Northern Ireland. It certainly is a fascinating time in our country’s history. Alan in Belfast has composed a list that ‘Charts the Assembly Elections‘ – it provides great insight into who’s who, what’s what, and where’s where!
- If you’re serious geek like me you’ll want to read about the different types of dashes to use and when to use them.
- The next month is going to be an absolute roller-coaster. I love it.
- “Here is a test to find out whether you mission on earth is finished or not: if you’re still alive it isn’t.”
- Spring time weather does the soul good. The essays not so much.
- A few other people are following along in the same vein as The Monday Retrospect. There is now a Thursday Retrospect being run by Clamorous Voice and The Friday Retrospect being curated by MetaphoraMetaphora.
- I’ve just started reading ‘What the Dog Saw’ by Malcolm Gladwell. It seems like a pretty fun book.
- I heard Gladwell speak this past year on the subject of Serendipity – what a truly fascinating dude.
- Yesterday I found my favourite pair of shorts. I thought they were long gone but they were just hidden! The summer is looking good!
- I’ve still got some books available for sale on Amazon. They’ll likely be available for another 3 weeks or so. Click to go to my shop.
- Rory McIlroy – I feel for him. And, I’m not even that into golf.
- I’m currently researching the differences (if any) in representative governance and democracy. if you’ve got any thoughts feel free to jump in.
- Do you guys often preorder books? I think I’ve only ever done it once. I preordered Tribes by Seth Godin. What have you preordered and why?
- Check out this awesome looking home library.
That’s it for this week. What’s going on with you?
