This one doesn’t learn

My tiny Monstera deliciosa ‘variegata’ is doing well lately. She’s tiny compared to some of my other plants, but she’s growing better than some others in terms of new leaves.

Such a positive family…

Yesterday evening, after writing my blog post, I was met by a rather unfortunate event. I found my wife in the living room, a bit confused. She told me her test was positive.

I prioritize writing my blog for about 30 minutes a day. Mostly, I do this when my oneContinue reading “Why I write – revisited”
