Why do I maintain this site and blog? I believe everyone has something meaningful to say and share. Because gradients of difference our how we learn from each other. What you don’t know someone else might. So, I share my thoughts on my experiences, experiments, travel, and often ideas from the philosophy of minimalism. The one thing I wish I had learned more than anything else when I was younger. Why do I love minimalism?

Right around the turning point of summer, I started to feel out of it. Tired, grumpy, and more importantly, gripped with intestinal pain. I have had an ulcer in the past and immediately went to the conclusion it was the same now. The byproduct of the 2020 news cycle, along with home & social confinement we have all endured. Fast forward to later in the year, after a series of doctor visits and tests, I did confirm that stress had wrecked my gut health but not how I assumed.

Nothing but forward momentum. This is the simple summation I would use to describe this release of the Zoom Pegasus and the cumulative effort by Nike to improve this shoe over the last five years. Forward thinking design, forward thinking technology, and forward thinking performance. This is truly a runner’s shoe. I am not asserting that it is perfect, but that it really puts runners needs first and foremost and the payoff is overall impressive.

My father, concerned for the future prospects of his children, pushed literacy hard in our home. This push allowed us to enter kindergarten a full reading level or two ahead of our classmates. I’ve always enjoyed reading but took to it less and less over the years. This year I dove back into reading in way I have not since college; averaging about a book a week at my current pace. More importantly, I have devised a rewarding reading rotation that delivers more than just a good read out of each book. A type of reading pattern that I believe is what is missing from the information flood we get on our digital devices. It is a Pattern Language for reading.
