There are many things I’m interested in. A bunch of them come across here on the blog. The vast majority of them in fact.
In trying to sort through the stuff I’ve accumulated, and my finances vs. my debts, and my time management obligations, and my work and gig schedule, and everything else that I do or plan to do – mostly it ends up in my pocket Moleskine at some point.
So what am I interested in? My list is partially in response to this article on building your own personal library.
I recall having a conversation with someone who at the time was helping me through a very rough patch of life. I was looking at a book, Akashic Records for Dummies, and of course, I didn’t need it. But I told her I’d planned on leaving a library of books after me. When I died. She said that any meaningful library left behind probably wouldn’t have a collection of For Dummies books. She tended to say smart things like that.
So here are my interests, more or less, of topics which may or may not appear on the blog, and which are listed here in no particular order:
- Esoteric Studies
- Work (How to work better, smarter, and for more money)
- Finance & Investing
- Japan, and to a lesser degree other Asian countries (focus on history, philosophy, language, and culture)
- Art (Theatre, Visual Arts, Other Performing Arts)
- Arts Management
- Fiction (Fantasy, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Action, Literary)
- Writing Studies
- Videography and Photography
- Memoirs, Biographies, and Autobiographies
In looking at this, I realized how broad it all seemed. There are so many facets that can fit into each topic; some that overlap topics. I write this out now as I work on honing in onto what this blog will look like – especially over the next six months while I’m in Alaska.
Anyway, I’ll keep posting. And maybe someone will read it. And that’s about all anyone can do.
